Last night was our wrap-up meeting for the 2008 AQHBA show season. This year wasn’t as kind as years passed, but we are still doing well. Although entries were down a little bit in most events, cow horse events and roping were up and club membership didn’t change much at all.
Our scholarship has not attracted much attention lately and so we are trying to rework the verbage to open it up a little. Currently, we require youth to be an AQHBA member and to have shown at least once. I am considering proposing that we approach local (Boerne, Northside SA) highschool counselers. We could still require ag majors and/or ag careers and let the kids come work a show or two in order to get qualified for the scholarship. If any of you have experience with giving scholarships, or even if you just have some thoughts about this, please comment below.
Last, but not least, we are going to bring in sponsorships for the first time in a VERY long time. If you, or someone you know, may be interested in getting some bang for their buck marketing, let me know.
