JANUARY 20, 2015

Hi Kids – Well, your UCSC Staff is hard at it preparing for our new 2015 season – I hope you all are ready to do your share to help out and make this the best season ever!

The first item, and a sad one, that I’m sorry to report – Nanon Wiles’ husband Kermit has passed-on to a better place – we are all asked to offer our prayers for Nanon and her family.

On a much lighter note, our first UCSC Business Meeting of the year came-off OK (with 16 members in attendance) and we did get a few things accomplished. Your Staff held a short meeting, before the regular meeting started, to discuss the rather long list of maintenance jobs that need to be performed at the arena on a regular basis. It’s going to take a lot of help from a lot of you all to get these tasks accomplished. Look for a series of “work days” to be announced in the near future. We will also be posting lists at each show asking for volunteers to do all of the various chores that need to be done during the show to make our shows happen. Please look for these lists and add your name as often as your schedule will allow. Also get ready for the “work-days” – you will be notified when they are scheduled.

Hopefully you were able to attend our Year-end Awards Banquet at the beautiful Union County Community Center. A good time was had by all and our congratulations go out to all the award winners – they worked very hard for these very nice awards! It’s worth mentioning that the staff of the Community Center took real good care of us and the Community Center has been reserved for next year’s banquet.

The Show Sheet for this year’s Open Horse Shows has been finalized with one change – our regular, monthly shows will start at 11:00AM – except for the Special Invitation Shows – they will still start at 10:00AM as before.

One other notable change has been made – we will no longer be scheduling weekly practice times for the English, Rackers, Western Pleasure or Runners. Arena usage will be on a “share and share alike” basis. We will still schedule our roping and sorting practices/jackpots as they come up.

One more timely reminder: Your 2015 membership dues are now due! If nothing has changed on your application, just stick a check in the mail and I’ll send-out your cards in the return mail. Obviously, if something has changed, I have a need for a new application to be made. PLEASE give me your e-mail address, if you have one. It sure is a lot easier (and cheaper for the Club) for me to simply punch a button than it is to mess with copies, labels, envelopes and stamps.

As usual, if you have any comments, suggestions, complaints, criticisms and/or anything else to say, please feel free to contact me at:

JANUARY 1, 2015

Hi Kids – I hope your new year has started-off in a positive way – looking for bigger and better things to happen in this new year of 2015!

I decided to send a “shorty newsletter” to simply remind you all that our first UCSC Business Meeting is coming up one week from tomorrow (Thursday the 15th) and it will start at 7:00 PM sharp” as it always does. We have a whole lot of items to deal with to get the New Year off and running, such as: establishing our 2015 UCSC Horse Show Schedule; dealing with the necessary Arena Maintenance; determining what we are going to do to resolve the Concession situation for 2015 and a whole lot more. We NEED all of you who actually care, to take a truly active part in this process! With help from more Club members, we will be able to get more done. Please don’t expect your Club Officers to do everything for you – it is every bit as much your responsibility to make the Club go as it is theirs – they’re just here to help get what you want done.

If for some legitimate reason you can’t attend all of these (Every-Third-Thursday) meetings, make it a point to contact one or more of your Officers before the meeting and let them know what your concerns are and they will pass it on at the meetings for you. If you don’t know who your 2015 Officers are, take a look at our web site.

One more reminder: Your 2015 membership dues are now due. If nothing has changed on your application, just stick a check in the mail and I’ll send your cards in the return mail. PLEASE give me your e-mail address, if you have one. It sure is a lot easier (and cheaper for the Club) to simply punch a button than it is to make-up the copies, labels and envelopes.
