Congrats to everyone receiving year end awards!

There was a board meeting in November, Amy has the meeting minutes on the website for registered members. Some highlights of the minutes include:

-The club will continue to offer free memberships & $25 off bill at first show for NEW members….so if you know someone who is not yet a member…invite them to join!!

-WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Show managers needed!! Discussion was had about hiring an announcer.  We pay $50/day & $75/day for the futurity show.  Vicki also suggested that we hire a “chief” ring steward to head up organizing all other ring steward help; they would be required to be at all the shows.  The club also needs to recruit & train scribes.  Two scribes would be needed every show day.  These items will be added to the January meeting agenda. If you able & willing to help with any of the above, please contact Barb at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Youth Club: Youth will be making candy jars for the banquet table center pieces that will be auctioned off & will again have a silent auction. PLEASE consider bringing a donation item (or two) for the silent auction!!
The awards saddle be presented at the banquet & the winner has been determined but not announced. Another saddle award was approved to be for next year’s award, so let any youth know to join for a chance to win!
