For anyone who may not have heard, Lynn Titlow passed away. Here’s the information I have regarding her service:
For all of our family and friends we are having a service for Lynn on October 21, 2016 in Reno, Nevada at Trinity Episcopal Church at 2:00. A reception will follow at a location yet to be determined.
and the Board is going to have a phone meeting tonight or tomorrow on the NPHC gift topic:
in lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the American Paint Horse Foundation for a scholarship in her honor—click the orange “Give a Gift” button at the top of apha.com and scroll down to the “Honorarium or Memorial Endowment” section; list “Lynn Titlow” in the Designee box, and note how much you’d like to give.

On the road to final year-end points: Here is the updated NPHC Year-end points file through the September 2016 Fallon show. The file should be marked v5-1, dated 9/17/2016. There are a couple of Not Qualified due to a lack of the 4 points to qualify for a class award, but those classes still count towards Overalls and High Points. They will be removed when the points go final. Lots more horses dropped off due to not enough qualifying judges. Check your points and Please send your corrections, questions, or other needs.
