a)Secretary-The new membership form will be posted on line on the new website.
The high point account was depleted and
we have the Money Market account with $2797.05.
Show account: $14,314.63
General account: $434.16
Youth Checking account: $2084.13
We will pay for the High Point Awards ½ out of the General account and ½ from the youth account. Tammy discussed the show money market account and asked everyone what the original purpose of the saving account was for. Linda Wieman thought it was for the scholarship fund. Denise said we could use it for both High Point and the scholarship award. Denise made a motion to change it to the High Point and Scholarship Fund. Martha Helland 2nd, Motion passed.
-Martha reminded everyone of the official by
-law change to read emails and reply to those that need a reply and to vote on the ones that need a vote. This is very important to do club business properly electronically. Heather Carlson said that the subject line should state what the email pertains to so that it does not get overlooked.
Region X meetings
-Again no one attended any region meetings this past year. Chris showed everyone a list of the meetings for 2013 that she included in everyone’s packet. We should at least attend two meetings through out the year. You only need to be a delegate to attend, not a board member or an officer of the club. Heather Carlson and Deb McGuire volunteered to be delegates agreed to attend one of and attend at least one meeting each. Chris will send out or post a list of meeting dateson the website as it was discovered that the meetings were not on the list in the packet.
-Mary Lou read results of the Consignment booth. The youth made $85.00 on donated items and $72.17 on stick horses and face painting. They made $461.73 on the consignment sale and we paid $86.27 to the SD Treasurer for sales tax.
b)Tammy said she would be willing along with Barb Jurgens do an Arabian breed demo and booth at the horse fair.Only Two horses per breed can come in to the arena. Jayne Solberg does not want to do it again. There is a cost to do a breed booth. There is a cost involved. Tammy will check with Doug Nichol to make sure she can do it. Tammy is not looking for club reimbursement to do this. She will find the AHA stuff that Jane brought. Someone said she got it from AHA. Christy requested that Tammy keep us informed on it.
-Heather Swanson is sick with the flu, so Christy read her report. The dates are April 20 – 21st, 2013 Christy asked if we should keep it as a Region 6 and 10 qualifier? Heather Swanson reported it could possibly be two Region 10 shows. Linda thought the 6 show would not help us at all. Region 6 is in Rapid City now this year. If we have both (6 and 10) it is easier for the pinto group. EricKobernusz said we need both a 6 and a 10 qualifier. Heather Carlson said what about adding sport horse classes to the show? We would have to cover Judge costs. This would add to the horse numbers. She said she had people who would sponsor Judge costs. If we add sport horse in hand or under saddle. This can be done in a one day format. It opens up options for people to do more with their horses and for the youth to try new things. Heather Carlson will put something together on it. About $1,000.00 is needed for costs. Need volunteers to help out. Talked about dressage outside. The weather is also iffy at that time. There would need to be 12 halter classes and 8 riding classes for the sport horse addition. Heather Carlson and Martha Helland will come up with a proposal and send it out to everyone.
Run it by Heather Swanson first. We need sponsorships for this show. There is a copy of one in your packets. Martha reminded us we should all go out to try to get sponsors to this show even if it is for $25.00.
June 8th, 2013 _See the note in your packets from Kara Semmler. Deb McGuire said they would take the open show on and maybe try to expand it. Denise Haertel said we should try to do a show in September. This year stay status quo and we will promote it and add in some fun classes. Eric Kobernusz asked if we could add reining classes into the Open Show. Tammy Stoel asked for a spotted class. If we got Pinto approval it would be huge. Everyone agreed that we need an open show. Chris will send out an email on the dates available for the open show. First weekend in June? Susan Maier agreed to sponsor the extra costs of the large arena versus the small one so that we could use the large arena. She needs to know the date. Check to see what the Southeast people are doing for dates. Susan has the forms to check into Pinto approval. We will wait to see what they say before we vote on a date.
