Kelly motioned to approve the Treasure’s Report ,and Heather seconded the motion. We had two bills presented to us: 1) $100 to Kelly for silent auction expenses and 2) $90.48 to Pam for the High Point Awards for the Western Idaho Fair. Heather motioned to pay both bills and Lois seconded the motion.


IDAMHC/ISHSA September Show Patterns and Show Bill: The patterns were completed and sent to Anita. Due to weather concerns it was agreed on the obstacle driving to change it from tarp to bridge. Also Anita said that when she prints the patterns, the background is grey. Kelli offered to try and print them without the grey after Felicia makes the changes to them. Due to a mistake made by Wade in double booking him, he found Connie Evans to be a judge for us. Helpers will be needed setting up the trail courses; meet at Al Birt around 6 p.m. on Sept. 15th to help. Try to get the silent auction items to Kelli before the show.

Western Idaho Fair Winners: Youth High Point Amy Humpherys, Mini Hi Point Maria Redinger and Reserve High Point Felicia Humpherys. Congrats to all!!!

Mini Hoofbeats 4-H club: Amy Humpherys won Driving and 2 Mini Hi-Point Awards. Great job Amy!!

New Business

Nominations: It’s time to think of Board of Directors nominations. Those nominations will be presented at the October meeting, so we can get ballots out. Please email Maria with your nominations.

Halloween Play Day show bill changes: We decided to remove the halter classes and the driving shooting gallery, as well as changing the Flag Race to the Rat Race and adding a Cones Derby for driving. The start time is changed from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. We considered changing the fees for the show and decided to keep the fees the same. Pam announced that she doesn’t want to secretary the show this year, so Kelli and Niki agreed to do the secretary work this year. A pot luck is again the lunch plan, and Felicia will assign menu categories for it. She also agreed to be the person to accept any pre-entries and to be the contact person.

Year End Banquet: Last couple years we have had it at the Golden Dragon and it was open for discussion to see if there was any other locations for a suggestion. It was decided that we would have it at the Golden Dragon again on December 2nd at 1 p.m. The cost is $5 for members and $10 for non members. If you would like to participate in the gift exchange it has a $15 limit.

November 8th is now the deadline for submitting points for the year-end awards.

The City of Eagle is having a Fall Festival at Eagle Heritage Park on Oct. 14 and has contacted Lynne to invite the club to participate. Participants would bring a horse to mingle with the people between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Pam is adding this event to the club’s insurance certificate.

Angel Mini Wings: will be in colorful costumes at an event for “Save a Life; Swab a Cheek” on September 25th. It’s for helping find a donor match for those with cancer and will be held on Jefferson Ave in downtown Boise.

Club Logo: Pam showed us an image of the finished logo.

Double Point Show: Des Arab will be putting on a tack sale.
