Former BCHI Chairman Bill Correll

On left is our past BCHI Chairman, Bill Correll , receiving
an award for his service as Chairman. I believe that is Val
Johnson presenting the award. If I'm wrong, please let
me know ASAP.

Tribal Elder, Cliff SiJohn, welcomed us to the Coeur d'Alene Casino with a story of true horsemanship during "Trails Throughout Time". He memorizes no written word, as he is blind, but truely speaks from his heart and life's experiences. He's always a pleasure to listen to, learn from, and he brings tears to many eyes with his heartfelt messages. Thanks Cliff!

Bernie Lionberger

This my friends, is a rare photo. It's Bernie Lionberger doing what he does best. He's always taking photos of our events, but rarely does anyone get a photo of him while doing it. Walt Glass snapped this one of Bernie taking a photo of the Silent Auction.

The Silent Auction room was buzzing with activity as people signed their names to bid for wonderful items. There were many great bargins to bid on, and many
happy winners at the end of the auction.

Connie Glass and Sharon Bruce
Co-Chair, Connie Glass, and Chairman, Sharon Bruce, were each presented with a dozen long stemmed roses by PBCH President, Bob Williams, for chairing the
State Convention. Thank you Bob, PBCH, and BCHI,
it was our pleasure!

Gene Brude, Walt Glass, Al Sims
This was a hoot.... our 3 Musketeers, Gene Bruce, Walt Glass, and Al Sims, auctioning off our table decorations. They are comedy without rehearsals, but did a darn
good job of selling all 30 pack strings. Thanks guys! And
a special thanks to Butch Johnson for "REALLY" fixin' em! *Smile*

I'm not sure what Lyn Nale and Sharon Bruce were talking about, but it must have been good 'cause Gene Bruce was sure payin' attention!
Must have been mule talk!

KBCH - Bonnie Shields, Brass Ass Ranch, Sandpoint, and Terry Steiner
Bonnie Shields, the famous BS, and Tennessee Mule artist from the Brass Ass Ranch in Sandpoint, along with her husband, Terry Steiner, did a comedy skit for us all. She was a radio announcer from "KBCH" Ride and Rant Radio Station, interviewing folks such as Mr. Stu Pendus, Mr. Dan Ruff, etc. NO... she's not pickin' her nose in this photo, but holding one side closed for that special sound effect. Not only a great artist, but a wonderful person, and comedian as well. Thanks Bonnie!!!

PBCH crooners
PBCH member, Terry Sverdsten, far left, is also a member of The Lake City Harmonizers, and harmonize they do, very well. They did a wonderful job of entertaining us with great old time cowboy songs

Here are two of our vendors.
