President’s Message – August 2017

With the August 6th Show complete we have completed 4 shows.  The competition is tight and it looks like it will go down to the last show to determine winners in most of the classes.  With three shows remaining there is time to get the 4 show minimum to qualify for Year-end Awards.  In addition to Jeff Smith Saddles for the winners of 11 of our classes the Awards Committee has done their usual great job in picking out awards through 6th place and Top Ten Horse   Be sure and put our Awards Banquet on your calendar.  It will be held at Rancho Murieta Country Club on October 21, 2017.

We missed Lee Livingston at our last show.  We wish Lee well as he recovers from Heart Surgery.  We hope to see him at our next show.

It is time for our Board Elections.  Board Members serve a two year term and we will have six Board positions open this year in addition to the one-year terms for President and Vice-president.  Elections will be held at our shows in October.  If you are interested in serving on the GCCHA Board please contact a Stephanie Brown at (916) 834-7666.
