Is there a mailing list or anything of that sort just yet?
What about volunteer opportunities? I do a lot of volunteering at local events (what a great gig, getting to watch awesome horse/riders run XC and eating junk food brought by golf cart), but is there anyway to volunteer through the organization at those specific events? I noticed GMHA is coming up...
Eventaholic - right now, each event is still coordinating their volunteer programs. It would be awesome in the future to have a cadre of LFC volunteers where we could work with an event's volunteer coordinator and show up to a Classic 3DE and have jobs just in that area! Great idea! I'll put it on my ginormous "to do" list.
I am making a master list of people who donate (and those that show interest in other ways) so that I will have a mailing list soon. I will be able to make announcements of changes to the website, when merchandise is available, reminders of upcoming events, that sort of thing...
The Facebook page is taking off! We HAD to have a Facebook page!

Reason: typing before coffee - bad idea!
Thanks for the kind words on the logo and website. We are still developing and refining but it's great to get good feedback. Suggestions (and even criticisms!) are welcome!
I am actively looking for good photos especially emphasizing steeplechase. If you have photos that I can put up on the website, please send them to me along with credit informatin and I will put them up. Also want to get photos of our 2009 Classic 3DE winners and participants!
RacetrackReject - I originally set up the monthly donation to run until you cancel it. Thanks for the question since it brought up the following:
However, several people made pledges to donate for a year (basically an annual donation of $100 payable in montly installments). Because of this, I have changed the monthly donation to be an annual renewal (at least, it will be changed by tonight as soon as I can upload the new page!).
I have also had requests for a donation option for $8.33 to exactly make the $100 annual amount. I will also add that option - although a personal request from me - if you can do $10/month it makes the bookkeeping SO much easier!
For those that do the monthly donation - I have set up a master list that shows when the donation started and I will send out a notice yearly so that people can pledge for another year.
Thanks for the question!

Reason: policy change
Good work, and a nice start!
The only thing I could see was the Waredaca T3D is formally called the Area II Adult Riders Training three-day event - it is put on by the Area II Adult Riders group, and is held at Waredaca but it is our deal and we do all the work for it to be held there.
There are T3D web pages for this at the Area II website - www.usea2.net - click on the Ticket to Ride thingie or go to the T3D/ Adult Riders part.
I have loads of pictures and sent them all to Gnep before - did he pass them along for you?
I used the titles from the USEA Omnibus pages for the events so I could remain consistent between the LFC website and USEA, etc. Was there a name change that I missed? It think it still says Waredaca H.T. on the Omnibus. I'll try to add something that gives a shoutout to the Area II Adult Riders! Thanks for the info!
I will also add the new link for the Area II Adult Riders web pages to the Education page - the link on the USEA T3DE page for Area II Adult Riders site is outdated from 2008 (that's why I didn't put it on the LFC website originally).

Reason: still learning how to spell! and keeping GMHA straight from Waredaca...
