    Just an FYI... I just sent the current leaderboard standings to the Area chairman... they should be posted on the website soon. Points are as of today and include results from Spring Bay, Rolex, Winona, Mayfest and IEA. I know a couple people/horses names here so here's what I know so far:

    (deleted due to changes after receiving USEA membership & horse registration information -- see post at the end for updates)


    If ya'll have any questions, comments, suggestions or corrections... just holler. If you think you've gotten points and want to know where you stand, ask... I have the entire list.

    I just thought it would be fun to share. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Hi Heather. Thanks... you were one (of MANY I'm sure) that I wasn't sure where to put you so you got put in the Open -- which means you won't show up on the lists in the correct place when they get uploaded to the Area VIII site. BUT... given that I now know your AA status (thank you)... you are officially in a tie for 8th on the AA ROY list (with 4 points). That also puts you just outside the top 20 on the Training list. congrats! and keep up the good work!!

    PS -- I'm officially soliciting award program sponsors!!! We've expanded the program a LOT this year and will need some help to give out the number of awards and ribbons that we want to -- afterall, we put so much into the sport we should get something back if possible, right?? If you'd like to sponsor a specific division or award, that's great...if you want to help out tremendously and just be a "general" award sponsor (with a monetary donation), that would be GREAT too!! Specific awards can include certain divisions or awards like AA Rider of the Year, Stallion/Gelding of the Year, etc.

    We're also starting to take nominations (must include a narrative on "Why") for Volunteer of the Year awards.

    That's great--thanks for the update TLE! Congrats to all of you that I know: Delta Wave (WOW!), Mickey 87, annikak AND those that I don't (but I will hopefully meet at future events)! I know I got a few points at Winona, but I got more this weekend at Encore. Maybe after those points are in, I'll be in the top 50? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif . . . Anyway--how do we officially register as an AA? Or do we just let you know?

    Wow! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif That's great news! I picked up 4pts at Derbyshire also, so that should help the cause. I have never been on the leaderboard before! Maybe the years of hard work is finally paying off!!

    As far as helping with awards...being that I am the typical poor horse person...I would be better able to help in some way than donate $$. Does Area 8 have their own awards dinner or is it part of the National Convention?

    Basically, yeah... just let me know. IF participation allows, BN-T will be split JR, Senior Ammy, and Open. P-A will be split by YR, Adult Ammy, and Open. The ROY awards will be split Jr/YR, AA and Open. Basically, if I don't know, you end up in Open.

    Mickey... there will be an Area meeting that will have the awards presentation as part of it. I'm hoping that by having a leaderboard AND having some new awards, we can generate more interest in attending. Last year was really bad... even with having it in conjunction with the Midsouth meeting (not one person outside organizers from MidSouth attended any of the Area meeting... it was really sad). I'm sure we'll need some help when it comes down to planning and holding the meeting!

    Oh and, ahem . . . I believe that I once indicated that I would be interested in helping sponsor an award. Could you let me know the cost involved with this? I haven't done anything like this before so I just have no idea if we are talking $40 or $400! Maybe Delta Wave and I can co-sponsor the Mare-of-the-Year award since we are both big fans of mares (especially our own!) http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif Or did you "call" that award TLE?

    Well, I've kind of "called" it so that at least I knew there would be one. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif But, if we all want to donate some $$ towards the award, I have no problem sharing sponsorship (with any extra going into a general sponsorship category). How does that sound? I haven't totally worked out the details on how much equals sponsorship yet. I can guarantee it won't be $400 though! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif I definitely won't turn that down though! I need to see what the price of ribbons are and a general idea of what we spent on the winners' awards last year. In my mind, as an initial GUESS, I was thinking somewhere between $50 and $100... but that's just a guess.

    Maybe I could sponsor the "Appaloosa Gelding over 17" award!

    Yeah, a "Master Horse" award would be great!

    Count me in for some fundage, and maybe a piece o' tack as well. I don't care where it goes, just happy to see the area make something happen in this regard. With my 5-shows-a-year schedule I won't be on any leaderboards for long, but it's nice that the AA's are getting some props! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I second the "Master Horse" award idea.

    I will contribute fundage as well or tack/horse clothing type stuff (embroidered saddle pads/sheets are always great). I won't steal the mare award from you though. I'm sure there are plenty of others that need contribution. And nope--probably not going to be able to fork out $400! Of course--using the classic excuse of--if I didn't have a horse . . . I could contribute more. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Oh but remember, at least for the divisional awards, only the best 6 placings per pair count... so who knows. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    As for a Master Horse Award... hmmm.... not sure about doing it this year, but if we were brainstorming, what kind of qualifications would it entail? Having a 17yo myself, this is an interesting idea. How would points be awarded? Are we talking basically a HOY award but with a minimum age requirement? Or the oldest horse to get points? Or what?

    I think HOY with a minimum age requirement would be good. I know USEA has a Master Rider award. It is not given to oldest, just whomever meets a minimum age requirement with the most points.

    Ah! I had indeed forgotten...and I was the one b*tching about that very thing when this was being discussed, IIRC! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif Now us "part timers" stand at least a chance of copping a year-end award, too! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I would be willing to sponsor (in addition to my existing "pledge") a small "novelty" award for "Master Horse/Mare"...perhaps a giant tub of some joint supplement or a year's supply of bute?! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif Seriously, though--something small and heartfelt for our much-adored "senior citizens", compliments of Gwennie and myself. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    LOL Lynn! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif I would also donate for a Master Horse Award.

    TLE--thanks for the info!

    What are the points calculated on? In-Area events? It seems like I should MAYBE have horses in there, but I'm not sure...

    Hey guys. Sorry for the late reply... was out "sick" yesterday. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    Anyway, I'm in the process of running the master horse idea by the area chair. Let me see what she says about adding it this year... then we'll go from there. No guarantees, but personally I think it's a cute idea and now that I have the USEA information (yea!!!), it wouldn't be difficult to determine at all! What age limit are you guys thinking? 15? 17? 20?

    Alleged... points are only AUTOMATICALLY tabulated for in-Area events. BUT, depending on the level, you are more than welcome to submit scores from outside events as well (recognized only). I currently have no outside results... so everything is from Area VIII only (Rolex, Spring Bay, Winona, Mayfest, IEA and just adding Derbyshire to be specific). Other Area events will be added as results are recieved.

    Ann... now that you've stated your AA status, you'll be moved to the AA list on the Rider of the Year standings (Open is for pros and those who don't tell us they belong elsewhere) -- which puts you in 2nd for AA ROY. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    As mentioned, I just got the USEA membership and horse registration info for all of the Area. I'm working (in between work of course http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif ) on a more current list due to membership requirements... so the posting to the website might be a few more days.
