Hello to all members, hope you and your horses are well. 2010 the Year of the Tiger has
begun and we are also gearing up for a great year.
TVEG has lots of events planned weather permitting of course!!
Our first event is a beach ride at Cabarita on the 21st February. This will be followed by
the 14th March with our sign on Gymkhana Fun Day. The 28th March will be our first
Official/Associate Event, so we have lots to kick off the year !! To run these events we
need people to help so this year we are trying a new Volunteers Rewards Programme. Ba-
sically it will work as follows , if you work at an event you will earn TVEG Money / Credit.
You will then be able to use that money/ credit at any TVEG Event in 2010, be it dres-
sage, hack shows or jumping days etc. More information on the Rewards Programme is in
this newsletter. Please come and help us run these events they are for you and we need
helpers. The AGM was held on 1st February and all Office Bearers were returned with
the addition of Brooke Clifford as our new Treasurer. Thank you Brooke for volunteer-
ing your time, we look forward to working with you! We would like to welcome North
Coast Automotives on board as our Major Sponsor for 2010. So if you are thinking of
buying a new car this year, consider North Coast Automotives they will give you a great
deal! They service cars too!
Look forward to seeing you all soon
