TWIN BROOKS NEWSLETTER May - June 2009 Meeting called to order at 7 pm. Secretary Minutes from April 09 read and approved. Treasurer Report provided. !!!!THE JULY MEETING WILL BE HELD JULY 13 INSTEAD OF JULY 6!!!! Membership Report – 108 memberships for 2009. The winner of the membership drawing at the Spring show for a free magazine subscription compliments of Equine Network was Heidi Courneya. The winner of the membership drawing at the Dressage Show for a free 1 year membership was Dominique Guimond. Treasurer Report – provided. Information also provided on moving the accounts to a new bank. The action was completed the end of May. Special Committee Reports: Show Committee – Diane Cicak (717-903-8543) and Marisa Chew (717-469-7390) - Show Committee Co-Chairs for 2009. Hollywood Horse and Tack donated an exceptional saddle stand to the organization to provide as a prize. The stand will be displayed at all of the shows this season and the drawing will be held at the Fall Show. The stand was donated in exchange for a sponsorship on the TB web page. A picture of the saddle stand is show on the web page. We are looking for a Show Manager for the All Western Horse Show being held this Saturday – June 13. Most of the staff is in place for the secretary’s stand, the concession stand is fully staffed, and the judge(s) is scheduled. The Show Manager would need to put together a grounds crew and fill in some other volunteer spots, as well as be on site for the day of the show. If you are interested in taking on this responsibility, please contact Diane or Marisa. The Spring Show and the Dressage show both turned out well. The Muckleratz Trail Ride and Camping event was an excellent adventure for all who attended. Food was great, riding was great, and the camping was spectacular. There were lots of innovative corralling for the horses for the overnight camping trips, and plenty of space for more campers. The Extreme Trail Event is in the planning stages. We have several ideas for judges, for new temporary obstacles, and for permanent obstacles, depending on what the membership votes on. Extreme Trail requires a lot of volunteers so keep the date in mind if you’d prefer to not ride in the event, but want to learn more about it, come out and volunteer for the day! While you are attending the shows and events at the Twin Brooks grounds, please make sure to support the concession stand. This season the kitchen is being run by different vendors who are working for funds for their non-profit organizations. For the June 13, June 24 and June 27 events the concession stand will be run by the Dogs’ Den. The Dogs’ Den is located in Grantville. They are a 501c non-profit and publicly supported group dedicated to improving the quality of life for pets through education and adoption. The Dogs Dens is A TOTAL VOLUNTEER organization. The Dogs' Den is a rescue, NOT a shelter. The dogs and cats are all kept in several foster homes. There is no kennel. The animals by APPOINTMENT ONLY (NO EXCEPTIONS ). If you would like to see the pets up for adoption you can call or email us to make the arrangements.

We’ll be putting an ad or article in the Equine Marketer, as well as the Paper Horse. Future Direction Committee – Considering starting a phone tree again in search of volunteers to help set up for the shows. We are seeking volunteers who could lend us a hand a few hours a day on show days, at the Wednesday Night Schooling shows, or for set-up night before the shows. If you can volunteer for any future shows, as listed on the calendar in this newsletter, please contact the show committee chairs, Diane or Marisa. Correspondence – none.

Another young member has volunteered to paint murals on the walls in the new bathrooms. The Cowboy Mounted Shooting group from Fredericksburg, has asked us about renting the grounds for one of their events. Board members will research with the township the appropriate permits, as well as indemnity clauses, etc. Donna Graeff will contact a local electrician to check the lights, speaker system, and the electric outlets in the secretary’s stand.
