OLD BUSINESS:                                                                              Assignments were made for the rescheduled Jr. Rodeo.
Discussed sponsors that are still needed-2 blankets and 2 breast collars.
Discussed changes to the arena care work assignments. Becky and others commented on how great everything was looking and what a good turnout we had for the mandatory workdays. Everyone is encouraged to maintain those areas.

NEW BUSINESS:
Discussed the Boomtown Rodeo which will be on the 9th and 10th of 
September. Applications will be accepted for contestants for Queen and Princesses. Packets are available.
A tribute will be made to Dennis Gee during the rodeo.
Discussed possible changes in some events, for example, a hide pulling contest in place of the wild donkey riding. Everyone present was in favor. It was decided by officers and member to have 1-hide pulling, 2-Pony express, and 3-Calf scrambling.
It was brought to the Club's attention that the Forestburg Riding Club would like to set pivots. It was okayed for Friday night.
We will have a sign up sheet for Boomtown Rodeo work assignments. Becky emphasized that while she would do her best to accommodate everyone's wishes, it was not a guarantee. 

Cynthia let the club know that it is still possible to qualify for prizes in the GNHA Playdays. The next one is May 15th in Lawton.
