All ODPOAC officers need to be both state and national organization paid members. All ODPOAC board members need to be members of the state group. If you still need to join ODPOAC for 2014, a membership form is on the website. After about 30 more days, we will assume you are no longer interested in which case we will of course keep you in the show announcement loop, but won’t necessarily feel obligated to seek your input on club matters. (For some of you perhaps that’s a relief!)
Saturdays show went great! We had a nice turnout, and hopefully ended up in the black. Everyone enjoyed chilling on Sunday. The group took a trail ride, practiced drill team maneuvers, and several of the kids enjoyed playing on the Penmerryl’s revamped cross country course. It was so ironic that Chief added nutrient pollution to the water jump, when I work all week to prevent such.
We are working toward another fun time at our 2 day show Sat. Aug. 30 and Sun. Aug. 31. I’m hoping to arrange a chuck wagon dinner and bluegrass jam Sat. night. I know many of you are musicians and hope you will join us.
We are also continuing to work on an autumn trail ride. If you have a location to suggest that has both horse trails and stalls and/or horse camping facilities nearby, please let me know.
At this point, those of us who were at last weekend’s show, decided not pursue a Thanksgiving time show, due to a variety of reasons, with staffing and funding being major. If anyone is willing to put together a show committee to host something in VA, again, please let me know ASAP, as approval would be due shortly.
Please contact me if you have any questions and have a lovely day.
