The 2018 board of directors met for the first time on November 18 for their second annual all-day board retreat and met again for their first two regular board meetings on November 28 and December 14. As a result of these meetings and supporting work between these meetings the event dates and locations for the 2018 show season have been set and have now been posted. The one exception is the dates for the year-end special event and horse shows #9 and #10. These events will take place on either November 9-11, 2018 or November 2-4, 2018 at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, CA and will be announced in early January after completion of negotiations with International Agri-Center management. The show approval forms for most of the events have been submitted to the NRCHA and the events are posted on the NRCHA website under “Events” and “Sanctioned Events”. Much more news to follow immediately.
