    I just found a great chia treat called Mrs. Tullamore's Treats. A friend gave me a bucket as a b-day gift. She said they are homemade by a lifelong horse owner....all I know is my horse loved them! ...

    Years ago, the warm up steward would keep the next 2-3 horses near the gate, the gate stewards kept the flow & horses went on time. There is no reason why a horse, esp a 3yr old, should be tacked &...

    Oh no, Nelzeagle, I was offering a the minimum figure of bodies needed! I know it was a crew of TEC volunteers who ran the booth. Just the ordering & management of the stock was a huge job. DAD will...

    Excellent spin! A politician couldn't have worded it better!

    I guess they are so self-absorbed that they don't realize the money lost, that came their way via TEC & the now absence of man power....

    They don't need a beneficiary but, much of the money came by because of CHOP & because of TEC. This topic was discussed in 02 or 03 when the relationship was thinning. They realized, who would give...

    Why would a tenant solicit money when the improvements benefit the owners? Footing will never help return the show to it's past granduer & true success.

    Once again, a fiscally irresponsible move.

    Once again, a fiscally irresponsible move.

    And Nelzeagle is correct. TEC only rec'd all funds from their shop up in the corner by the restaurant. All other funds, including Sallie's Mimosa on the Midway, all went to DAD. The analogy that used...

    The one problem with your opinion is, the chair of DVCTA had drunk the Kool-Aid & was "one of the guys" with DAD. Trust me. I sat in on those mtgs. Wine, food & just a good ole time with "friends"....

    True. BB attempted but it was a different & more friendly/respectful regime.

    Being the parent organization & the one who bore much responsibility, I felt DVCTA deserved more but the wealthy child refused to support the struggling parent.

    (hit reply by accident!)
    So it doesn't shock me that TEC & DAD have parted ways. Unless business, which this relationship was, is conducted fairly & with honesty, it will fail. Under the previous...

    What saddened me was the forced exit by many on both DAD & DVCTA sides. People who had been with the show since close to the beginning or at the beginning where forced out. They were good,...

    Yes, this is true of the former chair. In his defense, he ran an excellent show & he was a great leader for the team. He was fiscally responsible & fair. Mr. Hall was his side kick & driver at the...

    It's not odd but there was a poster who didn't think anyone was paid. I'm sure once they went to professional mgmt, the salaries increased.

    The nuclear grp was indeed an issue which sent many of the old time members fleeing the Dixon Oval, never to return. Accountabilty was the issue. The exec board wanted to spend like drunken sailors...

    The show mgr, the breed show secretary, the performance secretary, the hospitality person in the main comm stand all took salaries during the DVCTA years. Others on the exec comm received perks &...

    TEC & DAD have had a love/hate relationship for almost 20 yrs so it wouldn't shock me if they went their seperate ways.

    I wouldn't use bleach as it will dry out the leather. I have the white moldy tack problem & I have always used plain vinegar. Vinegar destroys it by changing the PH, making it more resilient to...
