I was supposed to be there, but the flights were cancelled. No awards dinner for us. We were getting several top prizes. I was also intrested in several items on the silent auction, but planned to bid on them inperson. So I did not internet bid and will miss out!
Consolation thing to do - not so shabby either- Lesson for Prince with Scott Hassler today, the Masters tonight with Prince's trainer, Courtney King-Dye and possible lesson tomorrow with Lendon.

I'm here at the meeting...and there's a lot of snow. I'm feeling quite at home being from NY!
All things considered, they have pulled things together despite the weather. Everyone has been working very hard to give us our money's worth! They cancelled the free jumping at Hilltop (it is possibly being rescheduled for tomorrow afternoon) and instead showed us videos taken of the horses in practice yesterday. Also, our speaker this morning could not fly in but they found someone to give a talk and fill the time.
This is my first meeting so I can't say much about attendance other than some of the larger (and closer) breeders I was expecting to see aren't here. I don't know if that is weather related or not...
