4-H Horse PDC meeting minutes - February 2012

Achievement/handbook/premium book- made a few changes that need to be approved.
*** IMPORTANT** We made a motion so that to get a trip to state you must have EIGHT points, not six, but EIGHT.
---You must attend TWO PDC meetings between August and the fair, you also must do ONE fundraising event.
This will be in the hand book, premium book, and checklist. ( sponsor ships are fundraising.) This is a zero tolerance rule.

Fun Show- June 23rd

Decorations for stall curtains at state- we are checking into costs of ideas.
Horse Bowl- Going good. Teams are going to Kerkhoven for a competition. Regional competition is Mar 17th.

Drill Team- April 19th 6pm. First drill team meeting. They have a Tuesday AND Wednesday performance at the fair.

Old Business-
Clover buds may be showing at the fair. Maybe have them haul in on Thursday for a show. We tabled it for more discussion.

For at the fair the show will start immediately after achievement and training.
We will be giving out two $25 scholarships per year.

We have been thinking about doing a learning clinic, called project day. Older members would mentor. Maybe a non riding clinic also.
