Hello! I am Sabel D’ Zyre and I am so excited to be in the blogosphere with you today. Since being crowned Miss IGRA 2013 back in October, so much has been happening for me. First, I am beyond excited to be in the company of Frank, Laine, John, & Curtiss. We are planing an exciting year, and we hope you’ll join us on the crazy-fun train this year. I would like to take a moment to congratulate the 2012 IGRA Royalty Team for an amazing year of Royalty, Fundraising, and Fun! And a very special Thanks to Miss Victoria Weston, Miss IGRA 2012. You left some big boots to fill. … Continue reading
It is with great excitement that the Board of Directors approve “Cancer is a Drag! – Canada” as the 2013 Charity Partner for IGRA. This Charity is not known well, so here is a little information about them. “Cancer is a Drag!” was founded in 2005 in Ottawa, Ontario. This charity is about fundraising and gaining sponsorship to provide financial support to all people living with cancer. They want to help people going through this trauma to have a better life; whether it means buying a decent wig, paying for hospital parking, going on a little break or with paying the bills while off work. Going through Cancer for the second time Diva Vera,… Continue reading

The first event if the new year and we are having a blast! This is going to be an amazing year!
As the title says, since my last official duty and trip to convention as Miss IGRA 2012 I have been reminiscing a great deal. Of course I have had a lot of time to do so since for the last three weeks I have been down with another run in with bronchitis.
Although I will not miss dealing with airlines or the steady flow of cash it takes to be so heavily involved as an IGRA team member, I will miss feeling so connected with my team mates and the organization. I am not going to disappear but will be focusing on my day job more and am looking forward to moving into a new direction in life. This means… Continue reading
What an amazing way to finish up my rodeo year travel season by heading out to Half Moon Bay, California which by itself is a wonderful vacation spot within spitting distance from the ocean. Then to take the 15 mile trip down Highway 1 to the La Honda Rodeo grounds was simply icing on the cake. The view of rugged coast lines and tall pines was breath taking and the mist of the ocean through the open windows of my rented Kia Soul was a very welcome reminder of why this land locked Texan still pines for days of walks along the beach, hot or cold, day or night.
John Paul, Taylor and I shared accommodations and we had an… Continue reading

I can’t begin to tell you how much I was looking forward to being a part of the Alberta Rockies Gay Rodeo Association’s festivities. When first recieving the Miss IGRA crown in November, I made a point of telling Sterling, “my first choice of a must do rodeo is Calgary.” I have been talking about this trip for months to everyone within ear shot. Even with all my anticipation, it could not have prepared me for what this past weekend held in store. The evening before leaving, Sterling let the cat out of the bag that he was giving me an early anniversary gift of the lastest ipad to help the long… Continue reading
MY MEN & ME
After a full day at work, I drove up Thursday night with the Puddy Dogs in tow. Sterling had to stay in Big D to supervise the completion of our foundation renovation at the house.
We arrived at our favorite La Quinta within spitting distance of the Airport host hotel and Fair/Rodeo Grounds. It’s our favorite because they do not charge for the pups staying, there is a pool and a dog out door area complete with disposing stations for puppy potty breaks. After unpacking to the sound of the digital ocean on… Continue reading
