The results for the Outstanding Exhibitor awards for 2015 Steer Pool were handed out at our meeting today at Heath Bowling Lanes. Outstanding Exhibitor Awards are calculated by a formula which takes into account your live placing, carcass placing, project book, showmanship, skillathon, etc. and there are 3 age groups. All 3 age groups final scores where extremely close. The junior category was separated by only 1/10th of a point, intermediate 10 points, and senior group 13 points.
We would like to congratulate everyone for their hard work and dedication over the past year and the following 3 people were presented their outstanding exhibitor awards at today’s meeting.
2015 Junior Outstanding Exhibitor award went to Hailey Bush
2015 Intermediate Outstanding Exhibitor Award went to Brock Pfister
2015 Senior Outstanding Exhibitor Award went to Justin Bush
