I just wanted to update you on a few things.
1. WCHR – I am still getting comments, emails and phone calls about the WCHR in Gulfport. Just to set the record straight, I contacted Geoff Teal, the Chair of the WCHR Committee, to find out why a show that wins the USHJA Member Choice Award over all the show in Zone 4 for the entire year last year holds both a National and International Derby and call the show the “Celebration of Hunters” was not a WCHR show this year. His response was very simple: VOTES. Each member of the WCHR is sent a ballot and we simply did not get enough votes for our show. Geoff also shared that there are not a lot of members that vote. So, if you want to see both Gulfport and Atlanta Summer be member shows, then vote for them when the ballot is sent to you – it’s that simple. It has nothing to do with the caliber of event if it meets the minimal requirements.
