2015 Dine & Derby Postponed

When you mix the crazy Ozarks winter weather we’ve been experiencing with hundreds of pounds of perishable meat, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. Therefore, our Dine & Derby event, originally scheduled for Sunday, February 22, has been postponed.

If you purchase a ticket, hang on to it! It will be valid for the new date, soon to be announced. If the new date does not work with your schedule, refunds can be given. The delivery of preordered Ranger Ribs & Tri-Tips will be postponed to after 4:00p on the new date. Refunds are available if needed. You can still place orders! Ribs are $17; Tri-Tips are $22. Stop by the Ranger table in the foyer for information.

When a new date is set, it will be announced via the bulletin, Facebook, Twitter, and our News & Updates e-mail service. We make it easy for you to be informed!
