October 2017

Dear CLD members and friends,

Although the weather has been no indication, the end of our 2017 competition season is drawing to a close. It is time to get your scores in for Year-End Awards and prepare to renew your CLD memberships.

We will be having our CLD Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet on November 4th at the Springfield Motor Boat Club. More information to come on that, but please save the date! Another date to put on your calendar is December 9th, the date for our Christmas Party. This year we thank Deb Klamen and Phil Pan for inviting us to their newly remodeled home.

As we prepare our new slate of Directors for our CLD Board, it has become apparent that new Board Members are hard to come by. If we want our club to thrive, it is necessary to bring in new people. Many of the current board members have served a number of years and would like to pass their batons on to the next person, so to speak. I think it is important to promote the sport of dressage in our community and invite new people to get involved. We have many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year as well as some fun educational and social events. Please consider becoming more involved with our local GMO!

Enjoy the upcoming fall season and happy riding, everyone!

Your CLD President,
Judy Nordstrom
