CATTLE RAISERS COMMUNITY Member Notes
GAME ON! Do We Have a Contest for You!
By Cody Fry, TSCRA Association Promotion Committee chair
Over the last few months, I have been writing about how Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) is working to earn and keep our membership strong. I want to digress from my series to announce something really cool.
I have the pleasure of unveiling to you how much TSCRA appreciates those who go above and beyond and help recruit new members.
Drum roll, please… We are giving away a $1,500 saddle certificate from NRS, a $500 custom pair of boots, and a customized leather legal notepad cover donated by TSCRA Director Edward Bordovsky.
And on top of that, anyone who brings in more than 15 members will also receive a customized buckle built by NRS. How about those apples!
We’ve put together contests in the past, but never to this level. It’s an honor for TSCRA to show our appreciation for those who believe in our mission and are willing to reach out to build a stronger association. Our goal of 20,000 members by the end of 2020 is still the target, and a little motivation always seems to go a long way!
Here’s how the contest works. Whoever recruits the most members between the dates of August 15 and November 15, 2019, will receive the grand prize saddle certificate worth $1,500!
Second place will receive the $500 customized boots, and third place will receive the customized leather legal notepad cover.
It is important to ask the new member to list you as the recruiting member on their application. Whether it is the online version from TSCRA.org or the print version from The Cattleman, they must put you as the recruiting member for you to receive credit.
Make no mistake, this is a CHALLENGE! And YOU CAN win this! The great thing is that even if you don’t win one of the three top prizes, you will still win a beautiful custom buckle just by meeting the 15-member goal.
Here’s a little secret to make this easy. The No. 1 reason landowners and cattle producers are not members of TSCRA is because they have never been asked. A simple ask is all it takes. Reach out to your network and let them know how good that saddle will look in your barn!
Thanks for believing in TSCRA, thanks for your support, and thanks for taking on this challenge! Until next month, may God bless you and send you just the right amount of rain! GAME ON!
