- 1 Horse should have a max of 2 riders.
- A rider should have the ability to ride all 7 games but only take the best 4 scores for the competition.
- We need to put some thought into the order of the games so horses brains don't fry early.
- Some people were confused on how to determine the order of the riders.
- The Red Ribbon Policy should be exercised.
- Avoid mob of horses at the beginning of the course.
- Have a Paltry / Entry type of course. Non competitive.
- Sign up sheets should be used for next years Noblese Tournament.
- Possibly have classes for next year on Sunday

- Individual Reports were passed around table and read.
- The Hot Dog vendor was very much liked by all.
- Everyone seemed to enjoy the plethora of banners and pretty outfits.
- We SHOULD do this again next year.
- We should switch up some of the roles for next year.
- Talk to Raphael about making Birjas Hoops
- Emprise in a "Box"
- This is so we can hand this event off to someone else.
- We should list all the responsibilities and roles with details for everything.
- We should see who didn't come and make sure to invite them for next year.
- Brief discussions on practice sites. Continued discussing about whether to keep them in the South or move them slightly North.
- Pro for South = everyone like the arena's and current facilities.
- Pro for North = more Midhaven folks would come and play.
