The Delta County Fair and Rodeo royalty court has been very busy representing Delta County at a variety of events. Queen Tess Gore and princess Annie Wilson attended the Western Slope Royalty Clinic in October. There, they practiced interview skills, public speaking and etiquette, and learned about social media, modeling and appearance. The afternoon ended with a guest veterinarian speaking on horsemanship and safety.
All three girls -- junior princess Aylin Bayles, princess Annie Wilson and queen Tess Gore attended the Colorado Association of Fairs and Shows held in Colorado Springs in November. The two-day clinic began with a day at the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. There the girls participated in breakout sessions that included stage presence, safety and ethics, animal welfare, and rodeo event knowledge. They ended the day with a tour of the museum. The second day's topics included stage presence, taking the lead, dressing for success, and achieving the right look for their hair and makeup. Along with hair and makeup, the girls went over fashion do's and don'ts to decide their outfit choices for the evening's fashion show. The evening concluded with a dinner with convention attendees, awards and an introduction of each girl at the fashion show.
The girls can be seen riding in local Christmas parades and in January, they will travel to Denver to volunteer at the National Western Stock Show.
