Event Date:  September 26, 2009, 12:00pm-5:00pm at Schone’s Friendship Farm, 15711 13th Street, Milan, IL.

We’re rustlin’ up all volunteers, riders, parents, and friends for the New Kingdom Trailriders’ Western Jamboree Fall Festival and Fundraiser!  Help us raise some much-needed dollars while having fun with the whole family.  Admission is $2.00 and every paid admission is an entry into a great door prize drawing from Ascentra, this year’s Platinum Sponsor.

This fundraiser will be chock-full o’fun and games for everyone in your posse.  There will be games for the little greenhorns, vittles for the hungry and of course, our cowboys and cowgirls will put on a fine show for ya’all.

Our Chuck wagon will be servin’ up Texas chili and dogs, along with other tasty grub.  We’ll have horse rides available for purchase to all who want to be a cowboy for the day.  Hold on to your hats folks, that ain’t all!  We have a surprise for you- “It’s a Pleasure” Precision Drill Team will be performing too (www.itsapleasure.org).  Dust off your boots, we’ve also roped in “The Posse” for your country western dancin’ and listenin’ pleasure.  Bring your decorated pumpkin to enter the Pumpkin Design contest!

If that ain’t enough for ya’all to flip your lids, we have invited some of our compadres to join us and have information available about their fine programs and products also.  All this fun is brought to you with the help of our good friends at Ascentra.  So grab the young’uns, the old’uns and everybody in-between for a hootin’, hollerin’ good time at the NKT Western Jamboree Fall Festival and Fundraiser!
