Tack Sale – Lara

• Will be held at BCF in conjunction with Jane McDowell Clinic on Saturday, April 11th.  Jane’s clinic cost is $45 per rider

• Sponsors will sort through all donated items at unmounted meeting on Tuesday, April 7th.

• If people want to sell bigger ticket items (more than $50), they will need to tag it with price and agree that 20% of purchase price will be donated to club.

• Everything else can be purchased for a donation of any amount. This makes it easier to sell and we often get more money this way.

• We will set up a sign-up to help run the sale and also bring food for a meal during the day.

Unmounted Topics – what are some ideas for unmounted meeting topics for 2020? Speech Teacher in April or May to discuss projection and making yourself heard.  Certification prep/review.  Emergency dismounts/rolling away from your mount perhaps taught by a TaeKwonDo instructor.  First aid/bleeding control – Dr. Pat McGonagill
