General Membership Meeting
Wednesday, September 10th
 Chuckwagon Restaurant
www.mychuckwagon.com
Fitzwater Dr, Nokesville, VA
Speaker: Mike DePeu
              Prince William County Recreation Dept.


This month we are excited to welcome Mike DePeu of the Prince William
County Recreation Dept.  Mike will be speaking to us about the equestrian
facilities that we enjoy here in Prince William County.  I have asked him
to talk to us about:

New Parks, what is on the horizon for equestrians in Prince William
County, specifically Dove's Landing and the parking lot so that we can
ride on those trails.  Also are there any plans for new park development
in the county, and how can we have input on that.
A calendar for Nokesville and James Long Parks' ring and facilities....is
there an on-line calendar where we can look to see if there is a show,
huge baseball game, high school track meet, clinic, anything else going on
in the rings before we haul out for a quiet trail ride?

Updates and discussion on the improvements planned for both of those
parks, and how can we fairly work together to get the rings safe and the
trails maintained.

Any updates, news, etc on Valley View Park?

It should be a very informative meeting on subjects that are important to
all our members.

7:00 dinner/social time
7:30 general meeting (follow up on Obstacle clinic, etc)
8:00-9:00 speaker

 Please remember, if you find value in our club, it's time to please step
 forward to serve on the next year's Board. Our current Board has been
 serving for 3 years and the entire Board is stepping down after this
 year...so if you would like to see our beloved Nokesville Horse Society
 continue into 2015, please contact Kelli or any of the current Board members.

Obstacle Clinic - Sunday, Sept 14th - Nokesville Park

Obstacle Clinics are an excellent opportunity to improve the communication level and partnership between you and your horse. We hear it all the time but it’s so true…communication and partnership is the key to any successful horse/rider team. If you don’t have these two key elements, then the pieces of the puzzle and the goals that you have set may never be fully achieved. Doing obstacles successfully teaches communication and partnership. Hosted/Instructed by Erika Andrews and Tickle Me Elmo and Kari Boberek and Apache’s Uprising, sponsored by NHS.
