OLD BUSINESS

– SWAG: There was discussion between using either Teezers or Pullover Prints for more club SWAG. Teezers would only be online and for a limited time. The member that goes on the site could personalize with a name for $2.50 extra and would need to pay online. The WHIPS club also uses the site for their SWAG, so Donna B. said she would ask for more details on how it works. Lisa George volunteered to help set-up the site once details were worked out. Kelli P. would still oversee Pullover Prints, and Maria wants to keep them lined up as a backup. Lynne motioned that Lisa oversee Teezers and Felicia seconded the motion. Motion passed by the club. Felicia motioned that Kelli stay in charge of Pullover Prints and Jennifer Smith seconded the motion. Motion passed by the club.

Clinic: Felicia said that May dates were no longer available for the In-Hand Clinic with Jessica Matheson. Members need to be thinking about the number of sessions they would want to participate in, and preferred dates and time soon. Obstacles and jumping are choices for in-hand sessions, if wanted.

NEW BUSINESS

– Expo: The booth will have a laptop set-up with a slide show of pictures between our club and the WHIPS. If you are bringing a horse to be in the booth, please bring your own buckets and feed. For those participating in the demo, drivers will be on the outside of the ring and in-hand horses on the inside with obstacles.

– Maria reminded everyone to turn in declarations and membership forms for points to count with the activities you are doing with your horses.

It was brought up that the club should have an award for Volunteer/Behind the scenes person/helper. It would be presented at the end of the year banquet. Details are still underway, but those nominating will have to supply reasons why they think a member deserves this award!
