Latest NEWS!


Notice to all members.

The current Board of Directors terms will expire in August 2022.

You Club has gone over some bumps the last 2 years (haven't we all). With the loss of Rollan Cole who was our chief operations manager, he had the truck and hauled the trailer. Along with other losses. YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!

Your Club needs new board members. Members who have a truck to haul the trailer and members with a place to store and maintain the equipment.

In addition to the trailer you see at matches, AYR also owns a 22 ft. enclosed trailer filled with store fronts and other equipment as well as a generator, and enough other steel to fill a second trailer including a Texas star, plate rack and more.

Thank You
AYR President Bronc

It is with great sadness and disbelief to announce the unexpected passing of Cole Thornton at the age of 35.  Cole leaves behind his wife Amber and 3 young children.
Cole was a very special person with a heart as big as the planet earth. He would light up any room he entered with his smile, contagious laughter, and larger than life personality. He loved and cared deeply for everyone around him. Family and friends were the utmost importance to him, they were his everything.
