       - Annual CDS Meeting: 1/20 - 22 at Rancho Murieta 


Thoughts on activities for coming year:


       - February Educational Event "Seeing the horse in a different light"  presented by Moses Gonzales at Sally Ruckers Remington Farm,  2 day event date TBD


       - Set up schedule for schooling shows and competition clinics at locations spread out to cover Delta Sierra area - this will be the main topic for the January meeting so please attend if you have thoughts or feedback.  Things to consider:  High Point Awards for a series of schooling shows, could scores from competition clinics be included in High Point calculation


       - How to encourage and reward volunteers - possibly give tokens to volunteers that can be redeemed or put in a drawing at the end of the year for a significant award 


       - Make events open to general public, give DS members a reduced cost


       - Pay ranch owners who host events: have a guaranteed minimum amount?
