End of Year Celebration

Hi everyone,

We will be holding our End of Year Celebration online this year, and the date will be Friday 12th March from 6.30 – 7.30pm – please bring your own food and drinks!

We will aim to follow the usual format, starting with a with a recap of 2020 from me, followed by a short address from each the committee covering our formal business of accounts and health & safety etc, also informing members what we can offer for all age groups. Please let me know if there are any members or parents who would like to say something – this is your evening – and it would be great to have input from as many of you as possible.

Fran has offered to put together a presentation of ‘your memories’ from 2020 – please send her any photos or videos that you would like to be included, and perhaps some funny photos that you don’t mind sharing? It would be really good to have all our members represented on this video, which in turn, will become a piece of history to look back on in years to come. Plus if there is something you’d like to say about the year, your favourite memory or how your ponies have help you during this time please do let Fran know when you send through your videos as it would be beautiful to have some quotes in there too.

Members Challenge – we would like to set members a challenge of making their own rosettes as a ‘keep sake’ from 2020, these can be displayed on the night and there will be a prize for the best one!

The usual trophies will be awarded for the following –
Most Improved Member at ‘Fun & Friendly’ Rallies
The Brice Shield for most rallies attended in 2020
Young Rider Trophy
The Alliston Trophy for member showing ?????
The Senior Shield for older member with best results at Area Competitions
The Lara Crook Trophy for Member of the Year

I will be in contact, but if you have one of these trophies from last year please get in touch to arrange either returning to me, or passing on to whoever is awarded it this year.

The invitation to the End of Year Celebration will be sent to everyone, but it would be good if you can let me know if you plan to attend.

Don’t forget to send Fran you photos and videos, this is probably best done by WhatsApp 

I look forward to hearing from you

Julie

As this year we will not be able to hold out usual End of Year Celebration, we have discussed some alternatives and a popular choice was to do a video – similar to the loo roll challenge – to which all members could contribute their ‘favourite’ pony club memories from 2020. Fran has kindly offered to put this together, so please send your photos and videos to her at <calamity.fran@gmail.com> or by What’s App etc. All photos/videos must be sent to Fran before 31st January.
Once the video has been completed, we will arrange an online presentation where the usual awards will take place
