Meeting Notes: (thank you Johannes!)
Discussion on Lionhearts Read through online comments and major issues were discusses from improving next year. 1. Morning events are best due to heat. 2. Need more shade for horses and equestrians. 3. Is it time for a Madrone Champion? 4. Shifting time slots and competing with baronial events a. Analogy of "Feasts" mentioned in that a horse event is like a feast. Like at a feast, once the food (horses) are prepared and ready to go, there really isn't time to let the event wait. 5. Need to educate event organizers and clearly state EQ needs. 6. We need a larger presence in Court. 7. Horses in Court was fun. 8. Speed Quintain event frustrated all. 9. Challenge Course was a success. a. running two courses at once still an issue. 10. We seemed to learn from last year's mistakes and would like to correct this years mistakes next year. 11. Try having event staff help with set up and take down of paddocks. Upcoming Events: Stormgods in Portland = ??
