In this issue you'll find a preview of the 2019 Kamloops Cowboy Festival and a sneak preview of the 100 Mile House Cowboy Concert :-). There's a review of the South Cariboo Summer Festival, a new book review, and a story of why there were so many mushroom pickers on the range this past summer ... Morel Mushrooms!! Enjoy!

Next year's Kamloops Cowboy Festival will be March 14th to 17th, 2019.
Tickets will go on sale November 1st, 2018.

The 22nd Annual Kamloops Cowboy Festival was a lot of fun and a great success! Thanks to all that attended and/or took part, and a special thanks to all of those that volunteered.
