Scottsdale Showdown!!!

Ok, we are back from our Candelaria Design Tour Italy and our fabulous finale' wedding at Villa d'Este on Lake Como and its time to get back into everything I love about fall in Arizona.

First, a sincere thank you to everyone from Isabel and I for our wedding! You can enjoy a quick video I put together if you care to enjoy our special day!
And some nice photos on Arizona Redbook at

Now - onto something in totally the opposite direction... PRO BULL RIDING!  So who is ready to get the Tony Llamas on and get down to some real fun on a Saturday night?

Yes, as many of you know I am very proud to be a Grande member of the Scottsdale Charros! Founded in 1961 as a special activity organization of the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, the Scottsdale Charros consist of 40 Active members and over 200 Life and Grande members dedicated to serving the community through the promotion and support of education, youth programs, and economic development that preserves the past while looking to the future. Many of you know the Charros for our Charro Lodge at the Scottsdale Stadium for Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants but now we are adding a fall venue that ties into our Cowboy style by adding Championship Pro Bull Riding!

On Saturday, October 19th at 4pm we will kick things off at the Westworld Equidome with a Chevy Silverado tailgate party that will definitely get you ready for what will be an amazing evening. After a little tailgating the All Star Championship Bull Riding Event will begin inside the Equidome at 6pm. The event will be nationally televised on the Fox Sports Network. That's only the beginning....that is all followed up with the KMLE Country - Bud Light Bullpen Concert featuring a triple threat of country music, Maggie Rose, Jerrod Niemann, and then Montgomery Gentry. The concert starts at 8pm and will run until midnight!
