Please Submit Photos for the 2014 Annual Awards Banquet Slideshow

by WSHJA Member Services November 23, 2014 in Announcements, Awards

We are now accepting photo submissions for the year end slideshow! The theme for this year's banquet is Up & Down and we would love for the slideshow to reflect this motif. Send in pictures of both your successes, blunders from this year's show season as well as fun and silly barn shots.

Please note: in response to feedback from last year's post-banquet survey, we are only accepting two photos per rider.

Please make the photo files as large as you can make them, and keep in mind that phone photos may be discarded due to lack of quality. Slideshow submissions can be sent directly to lynn@logogarden.net with the subject line WSHJA Banquet Photos.

The deadline for photo submission is Friday December 19th. Please contact Lynn Trewin with any questions. We look forward to celebrating your up's and down's at this year's banquet, and can't wait to see you January 10th!

Warmly,

The WSHJA Banquet Committee

2014 Silent Auction Procurement: Please Support Our Junior Riders

To kick off the 2014 show season, the Washington State Hunter Jumper Association will be hosting the annual silent auction during our Spring National Show Series in Monroe, WA, held April 2nd through 20th.

As in past years, all proceeds from the silent auction will go to the 2014 WSHJA Junior/Amateur Scholarship Fund. The importance of this fund to our statewide riders is well served, so we encourage you to make your donations, either through sponsorships or a physical item.

In an effort to ensure the responsibility for fund raising is shared equally, we are asking that each barn be responsible for at least 2 items. Big or small, the possibilities are endless.

And if you feel you don't have the time simply call Olson's Tack, 425-454-9453, and they will be happy to get the job done for you.

Please fill out the provided procurement form and return it with your item when ready:
