10-20-15 Meeting

If you need to contact the officer board (including those directed to a specific member) please send an email to wwu.equestrians@gmail.com instead of texting. We will usually get back to you within 24 hours. If it is an emergency, feel free to text.

It is your responsibility to make sure you have paid your IHSA fee, paid team dues, and turned in your placement form. (Placement forms are being turned in Wednesday, regardless if all are turned in). It is not the officer board's responsibility to remind you. So, if you have not done one or more of these, do it as soon as possible. The members who have not paid IHSA yet are: Sophia, Johanna, Maureen, Jessica O. Radhika, Tara, Sophie, and Sharon. To do this, long onto ihsainc.com and to the right there will be a "To-Do" box. Click on "Pay membership dues" and fill in all appropriate information.

We have implemented a new rule. Meetings are mandatory and attendance will be taken. If you are absent from a meeting when we decide who wants to show or clinic, a member from the reserve team can take your spot in the show/clinc. If you have a legitimate excuse for missing meetings, you need to contact the officer board before hand.

We have the official riders for the CWU Show. They are as follows:

Clinics have been rescheduled! Roger Saur will now be held Sunday, Oct. 25th at 10 a.m. The cost is $35 and will be held at Rachel's barn (please bring cash or check payment with you!)
Carpools will leave at 9:30 a.m. from the C-Lots (unless otherwise stated by drivers.)

The Sally Collins clinic has been moved to November 1st at 10 a.m. The cost for this clinic is $60 and will be at Sally's barn in Stanwood. 
Carpools will leave at 9 a.m. from the C-Lots (unless otherwise stated by drivers).

Volunteering will be this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. on campus. Individual emails should have been sent out. Unfortunately, this opportunity requires that you sign up before hand, so there can not be any last-minute volunteers.

Gear will be changing slightly. Next Tuesday, Oct. 27 we will have an optional meeting for you to look at what we can potential get and check out sizes.

Calendar fund-raiser. We hope to do this in the near future, so if you want to be apart of it (it'll be fun!) let us know. You don't have to model in the photos, but can also take photos or help out in another way.

IHSA offers several scholarship opportunities we encourage you all to check out! To see them all, go to ihsainc.com and click on the "scholarship" tab.

Team Meeting 10-6-15

Hi everyone! Welcome back to a new year and a new season!

First things first, we need your schedules in order to get lessons planned out and things underway. If you have not already given your schedule to the officer board, email it to us asap; Please include when you are in class, when you have work (or other commitments), if you would like to be a carpool driver, as well as if you ride english, western, or jumping.

We also signed an eligibility form. You are only eligible to compete on the team if you are in good academic standing (2.0+ gpa) and a full time student (12 credits or more). Contact the officer board if you still need to sign this!

The Big List was passed around which is a record for your name, W#, the level you compete in, contact numbers, email, if you have a car and are willing to carpool, as well as your height and weight. This makes things easier when coordinating carpools. Height and weight information is needed for competition, as there might be a height or weight limit for some horses. Again, this information needs to be sent to the officer board asap.

DUES: It is $250 a quarter unless you are riding once a week, which is $125. The reserve team does NOT have to pay dues but DOES need to pay the IHSA fee in order to be eligible to compete in the case someone drops out. To pay dues, enter the rec center and take a right and go inside the glass office (right behind the smoothie stand).

Shows! LBCC is on Nov 7-8th and will be both english and western. Those interested in showing are:

Volunteering: There is a volunteer opportunity on Saturday, Oct 24th from 8am-12pm for the Western Welcome weekend. You will also get a free shirt and food (Yay!).

Clinics: We have a western and an english clinic planned. The western clinic will be on Saturday, Oct 24th around 2pm with Roger Sauer.

The english clinic will be on Sunday, Oct 25th with Sally Collins at her barn in Stanwood, but we will carpool there.

Team bonding! We will have a movie night at Leanna's house at 7pm on Friday, Oct 16th. We will be watching Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and other fun stuff.
