Show Committee- The club’s show will be “No show clothes” approved! The silent auction is a go! Please donate any item or make a basket! There will be Hi-Point awards, Mustang classes, and Pony classes! If you can show, please come! There will be mini-specific classes, and we need the numbers! Also, all help is needed for the show to run smoothly. We will need help to maintain the auction, gates (inside and outside), and to help set up and tear down obstacle courses!!!


REMINDER: If you have not filled out any declarations for year end awards, you need to do so before you show! Points do not count unless Valerie Marshall has a declaration. Online shows do count, so keep track of your placings!

DRIVING DRILL TEAM: Heather Bunting has decided to try and put together a driving drill team! She would want at least six drivers who have the skills and commitment to be able to learn a routine. If you would like more information, please contact Heather.

Hallowed Hauntings Playday: Coming up on October 17th is the club’s annual Hallowed Hauntings! Any new ideas or fun things to do are greatly appreciated! Costume class is always a great competition!

Megan Sibiga clinic: This is a great clinic for drivers who are experienced or new! More information to follow!
