Notes from the Board (August) **NEW**

Notes from the Board
I am very pleased to announce that all Board and Officer positions have been filled. Ann Bowie has joined the board as Vice-President for this year and will be running for President for the 2016/2017 term. Georgia Demorest, Sigrun Moran and Chrissy Capacchione have also joined the board. Georgia will be running for Vice-President for the 2016/2017 term. I’m sure they will bring with them exciting new Ideas. We had another great show at MVHC along with the great turnout from competitors it brought a wedding purposal. I had received an email from one of our trainers I would to share.


Hi Donna,
 
The boyfriend of a longtime client approached me today with a request I agreed to help facilitate.  For the July show, he would like to propose to her at the end of her last dressage test that day in the ring before she leaves it.  Now I understand shows run on a time schedule, and to delay a ride delays every ride thereafter, and affects everyone who follows her.  So I was wondering if her second ride could be scheduled with a break to follow so the show is not disrupted?  He is open to other suggestions but we would prefer it to be after her second ride so she can focus on the tests.  The rider’s name is Kathy Lamotte she is in Training level test 1 & 2 in the adult amateur division.  If her entry hasn’t arrived yet it will shortly I know it’s been sent. 
 
As president I wanted to run this by you first, but I’m happy to email the show organizer with the request as well.  Again if you feel another scenario would work better just let me know.  Thanks so much for your help!
 
Jen Ault

First I want to say that we have a great group of trainers who belong to this club that I can always count on to send me volunteers if we are short for any events. The answer to her request was of course, yes. The future grooms name is Matthew Melillo and what a classy guy he is.

Thanks to all who came to the show and thanks for being a member
