"Thank you for all your help. We really appreciate the wonderful help we received from all the excellent staff that have assisted us on both our May 19 and September 22 equestrian playdays at the RMB Fairgrounds Arena. Angela, Stephen, and Roy were incredibly helpful and professional in every way. We look forward to our next event at your excellent facility." - Mrs. Linda Tiller, Independent Belles Drill Team Playday, May and September 2018

"Our event was successful and the venue had a lot to do with giving us the space, atmosphere, and layout most conducive for comfort, entertainment and revenue enhancer stations. Large parking lot was a plus. Electrical hook-ups and cables provided were a lifesaver. The staff was extremely helpful the whole week leading up to the event as well as during the event and after. Thank you." - Mrs. Jennifer Scott, American Cancer Society Cattle Baron's Ball, April 2018

"On behalf of the exhibitors (our kids) of the 2018 Nueces County Junior Livestock Show, we want to say thank you for helping us make our 12th year in the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds another huge success. There are always many special challenges to overcome, but because of the strong working relationship between the Junior Livestock Show and Spectra we overcame those challenges. Together, we produced the largest show in our entire 83rd year history selling another all-time record at the sale. Your team of professionals at the Spectra proved you could be flexible, find solutions that produced win-win situations on sensitive issues, plus truly understood the meaning of good old fashioned hard work! Feedback received from the many volunteers involved. I can truly say that the Spectra team has evolved into a critical component of the success of the Nueces County Junior Livestock Show. Thank you for the hard work and dedication and looking forward to the 2019 Show." - Rene Chapman NCJLS Bookkeeper
