March 26 2018

Thanks to all volunteers and competitors who came to our first Rated show of the 2018 series! We appreciate your support and willingness to check out the new venue. Comments were very positive throughout the weekend and all in all it was a successful show.  It was so great to be able to go in to the indoor when the rains came!

We can’t thank the volunteers enough, especially those who had to deal with the rain on Saturday. Donna Weinberg and Tiffany Silverman were our scribes for the weekend. Debbie Knowlton was our very capable announcer both days. Dominique Estrada, Chloe Krainoch , Jackie Real Salas, and Linda Hamilton were ring stewards. The outside set up crews included Glenn Leisure and his willing weekend visitors. The outside tear down was probably done in record breaking time since we had Dominique, Linda, Chloe, Debbie along with the resident all around CRC magician, Auggie, who also made sure our footing was worked as often as we asked. And we should not forget the endless hours the TEV-CDS directors donated to this show. Diana Muravez and Abby Kogler were the smiles that greeted you in the show and awards office, Elaine Hamilton capably and quickly had the scored calculated and posted, and Carol Tice zoomed around via the golf cart putting out fires and keeping everything going smoothly.

There were a few firsts for our chapter at this show. We had the pleasure to watch Marti Thurman and “Tap” ride her test to be awarded her Century Ride ribbon!  We offered  Prix Caprilli classes both days and were impressed with the rides.

Thank you Cookie Scane, Auggie, and Casner Ranch for everything you did for us this weekend, and to you, our members and competitors for your support.
