Jeff thanked Emily Uyl for a great job on entertainment. This was our first year to try a night ride with a controlled lopping. It went really well.
Randy Wright commented on the Saugeen Bluffs : There where two work weekends, grand opening, cancer ride, helped a colic horse – thank you Chesley for your help. Don Ruttan and Liz Rowe helped put out a fire at the Saugeen Bluffs. Randy Wright has also offered the trail committee to help with the trails at Saugeen Bluffs for the 5 years spring and fall. John Pyatt made a motion for the trail committee to help the Saugeen Bluffs trails for the next 5 years. All in favor. Passed
Randy Wright brought up about insurance. OEF gives 25% to riders and 75% to jumpers. Randy proposed that we should move to Canadian Recreation Horse & Rider Associatio CRHRA because they give more to riders. And if every one could look into this new insurance for the next meeting.
