Every year, Alpine’s Christmas party gets bigger, better, and crazier. This year we had two special guests. First, owner Brent Dodge showed up wearing a Christmas tree, complete with a glowing star on top. Some people were stumped that the tree was marked with “AL” on the front; others figured out that the tree was, of course, a pine . . . an “Al” Pine!
And then at 9 PM, after plenty of food, drink, white elephants, and Karaoke, our second special guest arrived. His initials? Mr. MB! That’s right Mr. Mechanical Bull. Heavy on the Mister! Who’d a thought that Mr. MB could inspire so many of our team to get on their spurs, and take him for a spin. But they did. The rest was Alpine history. Check out these folks in all their rodeo glory! (Though most of the glory was short-lived, ending in near-whiplash and a thud, every time!)
