Update as of 16 March - The annual Awards Banquet is upon us!! This Saturday, 18 March - doors open at 5:30 pm.
SEE YOU THERE!!
Hopefully everyone who wanted to attend got their reservation in??
I know we have some excited kids who just can't wait to get their awards and we have some excited adults too who can't wait for THE FOOD! Winter Storm Stella almost gave our Banquet Coordinator, Ms. Kim a nervous breakdown since the $6000 in award ribbons was coming from Rhode Island - yes, that state right in the middle of the BLIZZARD this past week! But Hodges Badge Company got the ribbons off in time and they were only delayed by one day, held up there in Pennsylvania due to bad weather/driving conditions. So the ribbons and all the awards are IN and READY for Saturday night.
Thanks to all the 2015 Perpetual Award Winners who got their awards back to our drop off sites. Attached here and on our AWARDS BANQUET page is the History of these annual awards: who presents them, how they are determined and the many winners over the years. These awards are being checked, cleaned and readied for presentation at the Banquet. Who will be the 2016 Horse Show Circuit Award Winners???? Find out Sat night!!

Lastly, THANK YOU SPONSORS!! To all those individuals, farms, businesses that have sent sponsorships in or given our club items to put in the Silent Auction - THANK YOU!! Our circuit show and our banquet would not survive without the assistance from sponsors. And it's not too late to sponsor/advertise for 2017. Yes, the Banquet Sponsor Booklet has been printed but we still have the 2017 Horse Show Program that goes to print. We still have 30+ divisions that DID NOT get sponsored. Close to 50 did get sponsored which is FANTASTIC, but we sure could use a few more $100 sponsors to help cover those other 30 divisions... just think about it... THANKS! And again, whatever amount you can afford, any & all is greatly appreciated.
We need your nomination for Good Sportsmanship displayed at our 2016 Show Series. Use the form we have posted under AWARDS BANQUET page to fill out your nomination and send in! Deadline for nominations is 15 March!
Please Please Please be a SPONSOR! We need everyone's support no matter what amount you are able to send, any and all is appreciated!
Are you a Perpetual Award Winner from last year's banquet? Check this list of names (click here for 2015 Show Circuit Perpetual Award Winners). Theresa Hancock is our 4-H mom collecting awards. Read the March newsletter coming your way or posted on our website for more info. We have several drop off sites, one in each County:
We MUST have awards returned BEFORE the Banquet so they can be cleaned, tightened and ready for presentation. Deadline is Sat, March 11 to drop off at these sites!! Teams will be out Monday, March 13 picking up.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Banquet on March 18th!!
