Tryouts and Volunteering Updates!

Hey Everyone!

New Riders:

This weekend tryouts will be held ONLY on Saturday October 6th at 10am.  This will be for both English and Western riders.  There is a $10 fee per discipline.  You will learn more about this at the new member meeting tomorrow evening (6pm in the Wade King Rec Center Conference Room).  See you all there!

Current Members:

This weekend we are volunteering at the Horse Expo at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds!  Alexa has sent an email with an Excel spreadsheet of when you have signed up to volunteer, so be sure to check your emails!  It is your job to coordinate carpools, please be sure to arrive early so that you are ready to start your shift on time!

We also have the amazing opportunity to have a booth at the Expo!  Thank you so much to Maryjo for being such a great supporter of our team!  

We will be having an all-member meeting next week.  It will most likely take place next Tuesday October 9th, time and place to be determined.  If you did not have your paperwork or IHSA fee at the last meeting, please bring it to the meeting Tuesday!

We have a few more upcoming events, more info to come:

October 13th and 14th we will volunteer at the WESNIP garage sale.  This is something we did last year as well and it was a lot of fun!  We will be sending out a list of who signed up for which date/time slots soon, so be sure to check your email regularly!

October 20th and 21st we have the opportunity to attend an English Clinic on Bainbridge Island with Molly Bogardus, Whitney and Claire's trainer.  We worked with her last year and it was so helpful and so much fun!  There are opportunities to ride on the flat or over fences.  Contact Whitney if you would like to attend and have not yet signed up.  Details on the trip as well as the cost will be coming soon!

October 28th we will volunteer at Coach Rachel's facility.  This will be an opportunity to give back to Rachel, who has helped us so much!  We will be cleaning the facility, cleaning and organizing tack, and painting the jump standards that Whitney made for us this summer!  There will be a potluck to follow!  This will tentatively take place at 1pm, but there will be more details on that, as well as signing up to bring food, coming soon.

I know this is a lot of information to take in, we just wanted to give you all plenty of notice so you can put the information on your calendars!  We will discuss all of this at the next meeting and as these event dates approach!

Have a wonderful rest of your weeks and we will see you all soon!
