Safe Sport:

All USEF members over 18 years are reminded that they need to complete the Safe Sport training within 30 days of renewing their USEF membership and prior to competing at their first USEF recognized show. Riders and horse owners are required to complete the training. It takes approximately 2 1/2 hours to complete the three part training. USEF and show managers are reporting the number one error they are seeing are the horse owners having not completed the training. Show results earned while not in compliance will not count toward any organization award or qualification programs.

Treasurer's Report: The bank balance is $11,232.58

The October show netted $1448.43. As a contribution to the show, Connie our show secretary, reduced her fee by $110. We need to vote to determine how much of the show income should be sent to the Stacey Berry Memorial Dressage Scholarship Fund which is now managed by CDS.

The civil war reenactment event that took place at Bower's Mansion had moved to our show date from a later weekend the previous few years. Tentatively, it is scheduled for 10/24/20, the weekend after our 2020 October show. As this is a tentative change, the State Park Ranger will notify FM and SNC if the group that organizes the event decides to hold to 10/17/20.

We will hosting our December meeting, 12/9/19, 6:30 PM at the Twisted Fork restaurant on the south end of town. All chapter members are invited to attend. We'd love to see our volunteers join the board for a fun dinner. It is a no-host event. We have a Christmas ornament exchange during dessert! RSVP to Beth so we can make a reservation.

The 2020 SN Show recognition for CDS, USEF, and USDF are in. Judges and TD's are hired.

CDS elections are concluded. Look for results in the next CDS newsletter.

Beth concludes 2 terms on the CDS board this December.

2020 Chapter Elections: If anyone is interested is joining the small but mighty SN Board, please reach out to Joan, Beth, Theresa, or Jocelyn. Our emails are listed above.

CDS AA and Jr/Yr Clinics in 2020:
