Buckeye Holds Banquet

Buckeye Walking Horse Associaiton (BWHA) had it's annual awards banquet on Saturday, January 14, 2006 at Al La Cart Catering in Canfield, Ohio. Sixty-eight members and guests attended the annual event.  Paul Szucs set up a display showing news articles from the 1970's BWHA banquets along with show programs, photos and directories from years ago.  Members enjoyed looking at black and white faces from the past, along with the "frilly" ruffled tuxedo shirts of old! BWHA is the oldest Tennessee Walking Horse Club in Ohio.

The evening started with cocktails at 6 p.m. A four entree buffet followed at 7 p.m. The high point awards ceremony ensued with Treasurer Paul Szucs assisting our long-time Point Secretary, Joanne Dowell. Mrs. Dowell had chosen beautiful engraved plates and vases along with rosette ribbons. Everyone appreciate her effort and hard work involving tracking our points and planning our year end awards.

List of 2005 BWHA Hi-Point award winners:

Members were asked to bring items for our live auction following the awards presentation.  Spirited bidding brought in a nice chunk of cash to help support our upcoming shows!  A bucket of Purina Nicker-Makers went for $150!  Everyone had a great time!
