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.
Thank you all for the patience regarding our Rated Show decisions and changes. Its official: our Rated Show Series will consist of three CDS/WDAA/CWADA shows: March 10-11; June 2-3; and July 14-15. We will be holding the Series at CRC Ranch (aka Casner’s) 34520 De Portola Rd, Temecula CA. Its a big change and we will miss Galway but we think its the right decision for us at this time.
The Awards Luncheon was great. Good food, nice prizes, happy faces, proud parents, spouses, and friends. Let us know how you liked the luncheon format as opposed to an evening party. We aim to please and will be starting to plan next years Awards Party, so let us know your thoughts.
We are not, as a Chapter, providing the volunteers for the Galway Events this year. More volunteer opportunities coming though, stay tuned!

You can start arriving at 11:45, we will eat at 12:30, have Awards at 1:30, and send you home to ride and do chores by 3:00. It will be at Roderigo’s in Temecula, and you will receive an E-vite in mid December.
