SN Chapter Clinic with Heidi Gaian "S"

SN Chapter Horse on the label pot luck dinner!

Thank you Loye Jaeger for coordinating our chapter summer pot luck dinner! It will be held on the grass at Frantown Meadows at the conclusion of the show. Please RSVP what you will bring to Loye directly at loyej1@gmail.com. The SN chapter will supply the BBQ meat. Thank you husbands Barry and Stan for taking on this challenge on behalf of the chapter membership!

Competitors will be able to bring their pot luck dishes on Saturday during the day BUT,PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR FOOD ON ICE IN AN ICE CHEST. There is no cold storage for food. If you are bringing a hot dish, please remember THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY ON THE GRASS so your dish needs to arrive hot.

Everyone is encouraged to bring a bottle of something (wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverage) with a horse on the label (stickers are ok!) to share with the rest of the party goers. This is a BOYB event and the chapter asks that everyone drink responsibly and it takes no responsibility for the consumption of any alcohol by any participant.

We will be hosting a 50\50 raffle at the show. Tickets will be sold 3 for $10. Look for SN Jr/Yr chapter members to purchase tickets! There will be a prize for the Jr/Yr that sells the most raffle tickets. Dororthee Moss, owner of Artemis Horse Boutique has donated a C4 belt as the prize!
