Dobson Ranch will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2023. The 50th Anniversary Special Edition of Ranchers’ RoundUp will be published in September 2023 and take the place of our normal September issue. Make sure you reserve your advertising spot early, because space will be limited. The September Special Edition will include stories and history about what makes Dobson Ranch so special. It will be read by all in the community of over 18,000+ residents and will be a collector‘s item that will be cherished for years to come. Because of the longevity of this Special Edition, the ad costs for the month of September alone will increase by 20% and the new prices are reflected below in the gold column.
The Ranchers’ RoundUp is a full COLOR magazine and is the official publication of the Dobson Ranch Homeowners Association. It is published on (or before) the 10th of every month and is mailed to approximately 5,000 homes in the community. The deadline to advertise is the 10th of the month prior to publication. For the Special Edition, the deadline to submit your ad is Friday, June 9, 2023. The Ranchers’ RoundUp magazine may also be viewed online at www.dobsonranchhoa.com.
