Welcome. The meeting was called to order by Deb Arndt. The minutes from
the 2006 Annual Meeting were reviewed. Note for a correction in

accepted. Kathy made the motion and Jenny seconded it, all were in favor.

Farmer Pie Sale.
Anne LaCanne reported a profit of $3,456.00 from Hunter Pace and another
$200.00 in food sales. It was a big year for the Hunter Pace with 28 Non-
Jump teams, 13 Jump teams with a total of 145 Riders.

Year in Review:
Deb reviewed the extensive list of activities the members and
parents/sponsors have been involved in this year. It was a very busy year!

DVD Presentation- Tracie collected Pictures from all and composed a year
end video to give to all Pony Clubbers. She did an outstanding job once

Spirit- The top 3rd of participants typically receive recognition in the form
of a certificate for a free clinic, but due to an overwhelming busy schedule
this year and the fact that the clinic budget will end the year favorably, we
decided to award the entire club membership a free ride in the Allie
Dorzynski clinic on Dec. 15th.
