Show Some Love~ Cloud 9 Ranch Restaurant The Ranch Restaurant opened up for a special reservation only dinner. The restaurant was transformed into an elegant dinning room complete with dinner music and candle light. The couples were served a 6 course meal... It was really beautiful and the food was amazing! Believe it or not in the middle of February...the restaurant was packed. Complete full house for the 2 and half hour event. Thank you to all those that attended.

St. Patty’s Weekend ATV Treasure Hunt ~ Find The Gnomes March Madness………..Coming to Cloud 9 Ranch in the form of an ATV Treasure Hunt! March makes all of us start getting ready for spring. This year we are going to kick off our season with a little something different. We hope you will join in the fun!

One of the 12 Gnomes Donated for the St. Patty’s Weekend Find the Gnome Treasure Hunt

ATV Treasure Hunt: Registration Begins at 1PM Registration Location: Trading Post Parking Lot Entry Fee: $5 per person(16 and Over)-100% of entry fees will be given away as bonus prizes! Treasure Hunt begins at 1:30PM-As ATV Riders leave the Trading Post Parking Lot they will be handed their list of Clues that lead to the Gnomes. Find as many Gnomes as you can BUT you have to be back by 5PM with your Gnome(s). 5PM-Dirty Gnome Game Begins. How this works, If you bring in a Gnome you are ready to play. Gnome number 1 goes first and picks a prize. Gnome number 2 goes and either takes the prize from #1 or picks a new prize. Do you get the idea???? (it’s like dirty Santa game). What happens if you return without a Gnome? You have the option of buying back in the game. Buy in will cost $10. But don’t sweat it…. The Prizes are well worth it! (And Again...100% of the entry fee goes back to the game) Something you should know…..The Gnomes will be hidden on the Trails. Clues relate to a trail name. So, it is important that you are ready to ride the trails on your Gnome search. Stay posted with the 9 Lines “ATV Treasure Hunt” information. Available on-line through Facebook. Search CloudNine Ranch Outfitters on Facebook or email Additional Information about the ATV Treasure Hunt. This event is being hosted by Ranch Volunteers. Some have given money, some have given prizes, some have given Gnomes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to those Ranch volunteers who work so hard and give so much to make the weekends great at Cloud 9 Ranch!

Dead Line for entry-February 18th While the majority of our Ranch Members do not call Ozark County home, they certainly do call Ozark County their home away from home. The Ozark County Times has listed on their website and facebook page a contest that every Cloud 9 Ranch member should be involved in. To Quote the OCT: Want to see your photo and name in print and win $100? You can by entering your photographs in the Ozark County Times annual magazine published in late March. We are inviting amateur photographers to submit quality photos for use in the magazine. From Feb. 22 through Feb. 27, the Times will hold a contest on our Facebook page. Our Facebook fans will be able to vote for their favorite cover. The winner of The Real Ozarks cover contest will be awarded $100 for the use of their photo on the cover. Other photographs will be used in the magazine to illustrate the scenic beauty and recreational opportunities in Ozark County. Photos must have good color and contrast. Prints should be at least 4''x6'' with the name, address and phone number of the photographer attached to the back of each photo. (Do not write with a ballpoint pen.) Digital photos (of at least 150 dpi) may be emailed to JPEG or TIFF files are preferred. Keep in mind, the larger the photo, either in print or digital, the better the quality of the reproduction. The deadline for entering photos is Feb. 18. If your photo is used, credit will be given to the photographer. If you have questions, call the Times at 679-4641 and ask for Regina.

So pull out those Ranch photos and get them sent so you have a chance to have your “Real Ozarks” picture featured on the cover of “Real Ozarks” magazine.

Attention Ranch Members The management of Cloud 9 Ranch in conjunction with the Ozark County Sheriff's Office have been conducting an investigation that involves the break in of RVs in compound 3-4 in the fall of 2010 and the fraudulent sale of memberships. These investigations will result in the arrest of three former employees of the Ranch. These employees were terminated at the time management became aware of their actions. The current staff has worked very hard to put together documentation and has provided this evidence to the Ozark County Prosecutor. Policy and procedures have been implemented in our deeds operations to ensure that this cannot happen in the future. Thank you, Coy Jackson, General Manager.

Horsin’ Around~ May 19th 2012 Tentitive plans are being made for a Cloud 9 Ranch Horseback Trail Ride Fundraising Event. If you are interested in the Ranch Stables and would like more information about how you can get involved with the trail ride event, contact Billy Bean. More information about the fundraising event will be posted at the end of February.
