An Xplosion over the weekend

Xplosion, a local girls fast pitch softball team had their annual Chuckwagon Fundraiser on Saturday night and I was invited to MC the event.

What is a Chuckwagon Fundraiser? It's a tasty BBQ, old time cowboy singers with silent and live auction to raise funds for the the softball team to travel to tournaments all over the U.S.

Since it is the middle of winter, this was the indoor, traveling version of the real event. I had never experienced a Chuckwagon Supper and Western Stage Show before and it was a real treat! If you are traveling in the Western United States on your summer vacation and want to experience the old time west on a real ranch-Chuckwagon Suppers and Western Stage Shows are located in South Dakota, Colorado and Arizona. The cowboys from the Flying W Ranch ( in Colorado Springs, Colorado came to entertain us.

We all had a good time and good amount of money was raised...thanks to all who donated and bid!
