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:
If you are not on the list and want to show, let the officer board know!
Also, the CWU show is Nov 14-15 and is a double western, so plan ahead for that.
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.
