2015 was a good year for Area I’s Adult Rider Program and I want to thank a few of the folks that helped out during the year by donating time
and money to make it such a successful year.
Joan Davis from Flatlandsfoto (www.flatlandsfoto.com). For the last several
years, Joan has donated a portion of proceeds from the Area I Calendar sales which has allowed the ARP to develop even more programs this
year. Joan is also generous with allowing us to use her photography to promote ARP events. When you see her hunkered down photographing an
event, be sure to say Hi and thank her.
Coyote Spring Farms (www.coyotespringfarm.com) – Bill and Jocelyn Hawe donated
the use of their beautiful facility for our Stressless Competition Seminar and co-hosted the “Getting There and Back Safely Trailering
Seminar). Special note – Bill designed and produced this fabulous Safety Seminar which was fabulous.
And, I cannot thank you all enough for eagerly participating in and having such good humor on the awards and competitions. It was also great
to see that Area I Adult Rider Program Facebook page become a vehicle of support, good cheer and competitive spirit.
2016 should be a great year with some new programs and additional grants to support our goals of education, safety, fun and competition.
LET THE ADVENTURES BEGIN!
