I am looking forward to a great weekend next week! The Area 2 YR program represents only 10% of the Area 2 membership base so it is really cool that 14% of the entries at Area 2 Championships next weekend are Area 2 Young Riders.
For those entered in the Championship Divisions we will have additional prizes for the Area 2 Young Rider members. Stop by the Area 2 Young Riders' tent at Stadium Jumping. The whiteboard will be at the scoring hut as usual so you can check-out who is competing and the Activities we are planning for 2014!
It was so great to see the many Area 2 Young Riders doing so well at the Championships. There were 52 of you competing, we provided YRAP awards recognizing the individual performances in the championship divisions. There were not enough entries to warrant a team competition in the non-championship divisions so individual awards were offered for these riders as well. I will be mailing the non-Championships ribbons to you soon. For those who are missing ribbons from Buck's County or Marlborough, the new order of ribbons has arrived so they are being mailed too.
The pictures of championship winners can be found on GRC Photo - please go look on Tuesday http://www.grcphoto.
I personally took a little time off following the packed July that included our WoW Camp, the USPC Championships, and the NAJYRC. August was time to reconnect with family and start planning 2014 activities for YRAP.
The fall season is in full swing with at least 2 options every weekend to compete. YRAP has a number of learning activities planned across the area. This note contains detalis from our "Behind the Scenes" at 5 Points in NC. We are gearing up for the two remaining pinacle activities the Area 2 Championship at Morven Park and the Waredaca 3-Day. I do hope that you will be attending at least one of these activities either as a competitor or volunteer as there is so much you can learn without having to pay $$$ to do so.
