Here is a message sent to all WCRA Members from our club president:
Hello WCRA members,
Show season is almost upon us and it's time to start getting the horses in shape and conditioned for all the big events and riding fun!
On that note it's also time to start thinking about fundraising for West Coast Classic July 13-15, 2012.
This show is the WCRA members show! It takes effort from every member to make this show succesful. Without your help, support, fundraising, ideas and entries this show is not possible.....and that would be a great loss to the BC reining industry. West Coast Classic has come by leaps and bounds and is BC's PREMIER reining event to attend.
You may remember the newly added WINE AUCTON.....a new fundraiser we did last year held in conjunction with the silent auction. The wine auction was a huge success and went over very well with excellent feedback. With such great results we decided to bring the wine auction back again for 2012!
**If we can collect 1 bottle of wine from every WCRA member, that would make this years wine auction another huge success!!**
The wine auction will be held as part of the 2012 silent auction at the West Coast Classic Location: Chilliwack Heritage Park ~ 44140 Luckakuck Way Chilliwack, BC. Bidding will be for individual collections of wine – not individual bottles
