Presidents Message

The 2013 Ride year is coming to an end. We have had some great rides this year. A special Thank You to all of our brave and wonderful Ride Chairs and volunteers. Watch for the Fall Round Up for more news.

At the general meeting at the Region 4 Benefit ride, we voted bylaw changes that will make our election process easier in the future. The new bylaws are posted here. You can read the minutes to this meeting here along with the delayed Treasurer's report here. Looks like we are financially sound. That says a lot about the way the Board has handled the business of Region 4 over the last few years when times have been hard.

The 2014 ride schedule has been put together and finalized. Ride Chairs and/or Secretaries will soon be getting their ride information on the web page, so keep checking the "Events..." tab to plan your next ride year.

One of the most important EVENTS will be the National Convention to be held in Region 4 this year. Check the NATRC web page for all the information and registration. Thanks to Kris Hapgood and her team for taking this on!

The election results for 2014 are:

President:      Jean Green
Secretary:     Carla Jo Bass
Director:        Kris Hapgood
Director:        Jim Edmondson

 

The Region 4 Alternate Director for 2014 will be Jean Green

Thank you all for voting and special thanks to those who have agreed to serve Region 4.

Jean Green
President of Region 4

Proposed Bylaw Changes

 

On September 21, 2013 at the R4 Benefit Ride there will be a general meeting for all current Region 4 members.  On the agenda for discussion are needed changes to our bylaws.  To review these changes please see the following document. Please contact Jean Green or Patti Hicks with any questions.

Board of Directors Meeting

Hello members and friends!

I want to invite you all to attend a Regional BOD meeting that we will be having on Saturday, June 22nd. It will be held in Gainesville, Tx at the Neu Ranch House restaurant on 82 (http://www.theneuranchhouse.com/index.html)

We will begin at 11 am and anticipate finishing things up at about 2 pm. An agenda will be made available shortly: basically some committee reports and the usual financial updates from Shirley. One important item will be determining the appropriate use of the funds donated in memory of our dear friend Linda R.

If you cannot attend but wish to send comments/questions etc...please email them to me directly at Kimberly.Winterrowd@unthsc.edu.

Also, we will be holding a General Membership meeting at the Region 4 Benefit ride at the LBJ Grasslands on September 21st. I will work with Anette to set the exact time.

All members and friends are welcome to attend these meetings.

-Kim Winterrowd

From the Interim President – Jean Green

 The board has accepted Kim Winterrowd’s resignation. We appreciate her years of service as Region 4 President.

The Board of Directors has honored me (or is that shanghaied?) with an appointment as the interim President. With the elections coming up and Patti so busy with the nominations (a job specified for the VP), she did not want to abandon her work. She has been handling both positions. Thank you Patti for stepping in and sticking with it. I will do my best to serve Region 4 for the rest of the year.

There will be a general membership meeting at the Region Four Benefit Ride September 21 – 22. At this meeting we will vote on some overdue bylaw changes to make our election process coincide with the National Directors election, since this has been turned over to the individual Regions. We must have our National Directors elected before the November Meeting of the NATRC Board of Directors. So, when you get your ballot, it will include Nominees for both the Regional Board and the National Board. Remember to follow the instructions on the ballots and get them back on time.

The ball caps for first time riders are a hit! We have 34 ball caps in possession for future rides. Brenda Hagler has placed an order for NATRC logo caps to be offered for sale through her business. We will have more information on how you can get one shortly!

Linda Reuland Memorial Fund

The BOD is working on a plan to remember Linda with a High Point Combo Award for 1st Time Competitors at each ride.

Get Ready for the Fall Rides:

• September 7-8 Wimberley Wayfarer in Dripping Springs, Texas
• September 21-22 Region 4 Benefit at LBJ Grasslands in Decatur, Texas.
• October 5-6 Robbers Route at Robbers Cave State Park, Wilburton, Oklahoma
• October 19-20 Horsemasters at Alert Academy in Big Sandy, Texas
• November 2-3 Last Chance at the Ok Corral at Lake Carl Blackwell, Stillwater, Oklahoma
