NEW BUSINESS: Discussed Jr. Rodeo being held on 1 day on  May 13th  was the unanimous consensus. Voted to do it in one day, starting at 9 am until it is done. Events voted on were kept the same as last year and giving a choice to enter EITHER in the jackpot events or the all around events. One or the other but NOT BOTH.
 Need SPONSORS asap for Jr Rodeo: 4- Breastcollars-$50 each, 4- Blankets- $50 & ribbons- $100.
WE discussed getting thank you cards for the Jr Rodeo event winners to fill out and send to each sponsor.

We also discussed having some summer events going on that: a horse sale and tack sale at the arena (horses must have their coggins to sell), trail rides, campouts, and a bareback playday. If anyone has any suggestions please let one of the officers know and we will discuss it at a meeting.

Our next playday will be April 1st starting with exhibitions reg at noon and starting at 1pm and the playday reg at 1pm and starting at 2pm.

Our first rodeo and parade for the year will be Vernon and it will be the 17th of May . Please everyone needing a complete uniform get with Becky ASAP to get yours ordered and be ready for Vernon.
