Chapter meetings are held one evening each month unless otherwise determined by the Board Of Directors. The location of the meetings will be posted to the web site and announced to the group prior to the meetings. Meetings are open to the membership.

Next Chapter Meeting: May 11, 2015 at 6:30pm at Susan Ward's home. Email Susan at sw4horses@gmail.com for directions.

This meeting is very important, and you should be there, as we will be discussing show issues in general (venue, number of arenas, indoor vs. outdoor, enforcing the rules re incomplete and late entries, etc. etc.) and we want to know your opinion! We will circulate an agenda to everyone before the meeting so you can starting thinking about the decisions we need to make as a chapter.

Also, the next meeting will focus on the July show in particular, including the fabulous Saturday night party and silent auction, along with the general show issues mentioned above. Popularity is a nice problem to have with more competitors than we can comfortably handle with one arena at our shows, but we need to deal with it!! Since we donít have a perfect solution, we just need to agree on which imperfect solution we should go with, as people do have different opinions on some pretty big issues.
