As we approach the final show for the 2015 NPHC show season, here are a couple of things you need to know. First of all, please see the attached picture. We realize that the majority of exhibitors keep their dogs on a leash or keep them close by their side and are watching them. With that being said, at the August show, there were dogs in the arena during the trail classes. THIS is unacceptable and show management will do whatever is required to correct the problem. Please do your part and know that the K-9 part of our family’s are welcome at our shows.
There will be a membership meeting Saturday evening after the show. Items on the agenda include final discussion and voting on the number of shows for next year and the nominating committee will present a slate of Officers for 2016 for the fall ballot. We will be drawing for the exhibitor participation promotion items at the conclusion of the meeting. The saddle plus many other items will be given away. YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN these items. The youth club raffle tickets will be drawn on Sunday. It is a pot luck dinner meeting, so please bring something yummy. Hot dogs, buns and beverages will be provided by the club.
September CLASS SCHEDULE CHANGE: The Leadline and Goat Undecorating classes will be held right after the National Anthem on Saturday morning. This is due to a scheduling conflict with one of our participants. All exhibitors in those classes have been notified. We will then proceed with the Working Cowhorse and classes that follow. Remember that the Longe Line classes have also been moved to the first thing Sunday, before trail.
NPHC Club DIRECTORY: It is that time of year to start thinking about the 2016 NPHC Membership directory. The directory is only possible in it’s full-color form if we sell more than a few ads. The ad money pays for the ink which allows us to do the candid color shots from the shows and the paper. Please consider taking out a directory ad. AND YES, we do allow pictures of the American flag, ads that include “God Bless America”, ads that pay tribute to our Military and Veterans those that might say “Merry Christmas.”
