VSC: Donna B. had nothing to report, but the club brought it to her attention that Susan Welch and Lynne Wing could both use cards for their husbands.
Horse Expo: Jamey is working on getting in touch with the person in charge for some more details before she makes a sign-up sheet. More details will be known at the March meeting, tentatively.
WISK: Jessie announced that the AMHR portion of her show has been approved and published on many Facebook pages if you want to take a look and the AMHA portion is still under works. Ideas for awards to sponsor were bundles that include clipper blades or grooming supplies. Harness, halter, and blanket bags are also a good idea. Outside rugs was something else Jessie said show contestants would use and appreciate. It doesn’t have to be horse related if you want to sponsor something, but sponsors are greatly appreciated!
Traveling Trophy: ISHSA discontinued the traveling trophies for their versatility awards, which the club had been sponsoring one for Small Cart Driving the past few years. ISHSA split it between large and small carts this last year but it is in the possession of Valerie Marshall since she won it last (partially). She wants to give it back to the club and the Show/Points/ Awards committees will oversee making guidelines for a traveling versatility trophy within our club now.
