Update as of Thursday, 27 October - 
Well everyone, let's hope the weather holds out for this weekend. So far, looking ok!
Forecast for weekend temps in the 70's; both on Saturday for prep day and Sunday for the show. One weather site showed 30% chance
of showers but that was later in the PM. Let's just hope any showers/rain/Tstorms just stay away so we can get this LAST show in and OVER WITH!

So sunrise is now around 7:30 am and sunset about 6:10 pm. So Western folks, you might plan that the Entry Booth may not be open until like 7:15 am, we do have one light in the booth but that's it. And English ring, we are going to move right along - hoping to get your ring started at 9:00 am and hopefully get your ring done by 5:30/5:45 so no one has to be loading up in pitch dark there at the Park. Everyone should know their classes and when they need to be at the in gate by now. So let's all be ready and keep the show moving!

Circuit Points after Sept HS are now posted! Go to the OPEN HORSE SHOW page to check them out.

Remember our 3 show minimum participation rule for receiving a Grand or a Reserve Grand Award ITEM! Several folks in the top 2 spots of a Division are showing only have participated at 2 shows so far based on the Sept HS points. You WILL NEED TO ATTEND this Oct 30 show if you are sitting in a Grd or Res spot with only 2 shows listed as "participated". Participated meaning that you either have points because you got a ribbon/placed or a "P" is listed because you rode in the class/division but did not place at that show. Recall the May show had rain move in about 2-3 pm and many of our circuit members baled/scratched classes that day. In the event that you did not participate in the class/division, you will see a slash (/).

Riding in the class/division at the Oct 30 show will then ensure you meet the 3 show min participation rule and thus are eligible to receive a Grd/Res award item.

See you folks at the show on Sunday!Type your paragraph here.
