Final Reminder! Reservations for our annual membership meeting and awards banquet must close this Monday January 5 to meet the caterer’s preparation deadline. This year we are pleased to offer in addition at no charge a judging seminar presented by NRCHA professional and AA judge Lance Johnston. Lance will make a presentation and answer questions. The event will start with the judging seminar from 2-4 p.m., followed by the membership meeting from 4-5 p.m. and concluding with a no host bar, dinner and awards presentations. Many generous sponsors have stepped forward to provide an amazing offering of door prizes to be awarded to attendees during the banquet. During the membership meeting, in addition to a look back on our 2017 season and a look forward to our 2018 season, as required by California Corporation Code we will be voting on an amendment to our bylaws to change the number of board members from 7 to 9.
