Annual meeting
Per the bylaws, there will be an annual meeting of the membership of Saturday, Sept 2, after the last class. Items we need to discuss are election of Vice President, Treasurer, and board positions held by Jeff McCommas, Jess Parker, and Dennis Jenkins. Other items include 3-5 year old classes and ranch riding. Adding new classes will possibly necessitate elimination of existing classes, including 3-man sorting, two-man feedlot sorting, and ranch doctoring. Please be prepared to discuss.
Exhibition speed event practice
The barrel race pattern will be set up in the speed arena during the herd work on Saturday, Sept 2. For $5 per run, you can make as many practice runs as you want. If we run out of barrel racers, we can set up additional speed patterns. This is a repost to correct the date.
Show Etiquette
1. Do not abuse animals, your fellow exhibitors or judges.
2. Do not leave horses unattended tied to panels in the show arena area.
3. Do not approach the judge unless invited. Go through the show manager or ring steward.
4. Do check your entry forms carefully. Software issues resulted in some mistakes last show.
5. Do show up for your class on time. Pay attention to the show schedule to keep things moving.
6. Do have fun. This is only a game.

You are not going to become rich and famous showing at Foundation shows. However, these shows may help prepare you for additional opportunities.

Ranch Riding Practice
The Super Stakes program is sponsoring a new practice for you. It will be a Ranch Riding Practice in preparation for a new sanctioned class that may be offered by OKFQHR next year.

New Stall Policy
$45 per weekend Ė nightly rates not available (shavings not included). To be guaranteed stalls, you must reserve stalls before the deadline. We will set up only enough stalls to cover the number reserved. We occasionally have extra stalls available after the deadline. Stalls reserved after the deadline are $55 per weekend, subject to availability. If you reserve a stall and find that you will not use it and if you donít cancel it by the time they are ordered from the Expo Center, you will be charged $20 for the unused stall. Any use of the stall (horse tied in it for any period of time, tack or equipment storage, dog kennel, etc.) means that stall has been used and you will be charged the full price. Contact Lisa Anderson at running_a@fullnet.net (preferred) or (405) 659-0931 (text or leave message) to reserve stalls. NO Facebook messages. If you do not receive confirmation of your stall reservation, contact Lisa. All horses not having a stall will be charged a $15 tie-out fee per weekend.
