Sept '15 President's Message
I don’t know about everyone else, but I sure am feeling somewhat out of sorts and
disconnected from the group after 2 months with no club meeting! Don’t forget to join
us for our Sept. meeting on the 10th. It will be like a reunion of sorts!
While I don’t know much about the details, the Los Robles horse camp at Lake San
Antonio IS open. Many local volunteers teamed up to help keep the camp open, so that
is some very happy news for now. Therefore, at this moment, it looks like our 2016
Poker Ride will be a go! (sigh of relief). I am thinking that a huge THANK YOU from
the equestrian community needs to somehow go out to these good folks, although I am
not sure how. Let me know if you have an idea!
I did get some good news about Manzanita Park recently. While progress has been
glacially slow (surprise, surprise) it turns out that the county has allocated some funding
to the park to be spent on making the park more accessible. Exactly HOW is still up in
the air, but their best idea has been to create a parking/staging area up top while isolating
the ball fields when they are not in use. If and when this ever becomes a reality, the club
should definitely consider ways to contribute to the park as a gesture of support,
financially or otherwise.
I heard that the Eagle Meadows campout was a huge success. Sure wish I could have
gone! Wright’s Lake is coming up fast, so contact Miz Liz Gheen if you plan on joining
us. And don’t forget our 4th annual Pebble Beach ride on Sept. 26th, hosted by yours
truly! We will be asking for a $10 donation by the way, to cover the cost of renting the
Indian Village for our staging area. Invite a friend! I’m sure that I am forgetting to
report on something but hopefully whatever I am forgetting can wait ‘til next time.:)
Hope to see y’all soon either at Wright’s Lake or at Pebble Beach. Or both!
Happy trails ‘til then,
