The northern CDS Amateur Clinic will be held June 8-11, at Lilo Fore's Sport Horse America stable. Lilo Fore will be the clinician. The clinic format starts with an introductory lecture session the evening prior to the first day of the clinic and three days of riding sessions.

At the April SNC monthly meeting, the names of all applications will be placed into a hat and a rider and an alternate will be drawn out.

Annual Awards Banquet - A GREAT SUCCESS

The awards banquet was a fantastic event with a great turnout. We were able to support and recognize our Juniors and High Point winners as well as those who won USDF awards this year. The silent auction was wonderful with many fantastic items. Thanks to Cindy for all of her hard work in putting it together.

Beth has the CDS plates from the 2005 season. Please give her a call to make arrangements to receive them.
