Just a note to say Thank you to Bill Riley JR and the talent show. I knew Bill Senior very well and was lucky enough to win the 1967 Talent Search and won a new Mustang. I sang for many years in bands around the country for years. Thanks again, Bill Lauritzen

Hey BRTS friends! Just wanted to share an opportunity to see Ty in his full hour recital before we move to South Dakota at the end of the month. Unfortunately he won't be able to compete at the fair anymore, but we are so very thankful for the important role that BRTS has had in Ty's journey! Hope you can join us!
Just an idea... but it would be really nice to post some sort of bracketing system of the kids that are in the BRTS on which days and who is advancing on, so local shows can kind of keep up. It would be nice to know how local winners are doing!
