President’s Message – January 2016

GCCHA has gotten off to a great start in 2016! Two shows in two weeks and both were well attended. Our three day show in Red Bluff was an overwhelming success, thanks to the hard work of the GCCHA Board, the City of Red Bluff, the Tehama District Fair Board and all who participated. We are already planning for next years show and hope it will be even better.


Our first GCCHA club show is in the books. We had great weather, great help, a great facility and 138 works for the day.. Results and points are already posted on our GCCHA website!


Remember, if you are going to compete for year end awards, you must attend at least half of the shows. In order to make up for our cancelled March show, we are planning to have a two day show in October. Plans for our year end banquet are underway. Our date is October 22, 2016 at Rancho Murieta Country Club. We had a really nice turnout last year and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Rancho Murieta. We pride ourselves on the quality of the year-end awards and are proud to be providing Jeff Smith Saddles again this year. We thank our 2015 sponsors and if you are able to help us with a sponsorship this year you can contact me at (916) 988-5446 or any Board Memeber.


We look forward to seeing everyone at our next show on May 1, 2016.


Jim Tilton, President
