29 October Horse Show STATUS as of Saturday, 28 Oct at 2:30 pm:
Show has been CANCELLED due to Weather Forecast for Sunday!
Yes, what a gorgeous day we are having today - Saturday! Missed good weather by just one day! What a bum deal. The show committee members watched TV news/weather last night and again this morning. Then all 6 of us each have weather apps we check. The forecast for Sunday is not good. Showers starting at 4 am with 35% chance and then EVERY HOUR ALL DAY long is rain,not showers but rain. Chances of rain range from 40% to 90% in the Hughesville area. The chance is consistently 60-70% for most of Sunday - morning till dark. And now Tstorms/lightning added in the mix. Temps will only be in the 50's and the winds are supposed to start picking up with gusts from 20-30 mph. Locally heavy rain is possible. 1-2 inches exptected in some areas. Coastal storm coming up the Atlantic and cold front coming east from the Ohio Valley merge over our area on Sunday creating this mess.
Some rain showers on/off with warmer temps would not deter us but a cold, steady rain with gusty winds is just not reasonable weather for a horse show. We already know we have lost some
riders to other events since this is a rescheduled show and bad weather will keep more riders from attending. We cannot afford to lose money so our best option is to cancel. We also feel there is NO chance the forecast is going to change by tomorrow so we are calling it off today vs. waiting until Sunday morning at 5:30 am.
There will be NO make-up show date. We are done for the year.
The points after the Sept Show are now posted here on the website. After an audit these will be the FINAL points for the Awards Banquet. The Circuit Rule that requires riders/horses to attend 3 shows of the 4 in order to receive an CHP or RES CHP Award Item has been modified to must attend 2 of the 3 shows.
Please NOTE: Your HELP is needed:
Not being able to have a 4th show has put our Club Awards Banquet fund into an extremely tight
situation. We will be desparately seeking sponsors for EVERY Circuit Division we offered in 2017. We have 86 of them to get fully sponsored. If our club can count on exhibitors, trainers, farms, stables and other businesses to help get those 86 divisions all sponsored, our Awards Banquet will be right on track. We thank you ahead of time for your support!
Accepting donations ANY time! Please make check payable to: Mounted Wanderers 4-H
and mail to: MW 4-H 3011 Fraser Rd Bryans Road, MD 20616
Any amount will be greatly appreciated! Use for tax donation before this year is out!
What does the entire division cost to sponsor? $150. That includes all the ribbons for that division as well as help with purchasing CHP and RES Award items. But remember ANY amount
at this time would be greatly appreciated and is tax deductible!
Mark your calendars NOW: 2017 Awards Banquet set for Sat, March 24, 2018
Thanks everyone for your support in 2017!
