THE EOQHA NEWS
President's Message

Summer is finally here. I thought we might never see that day. Luckily the June classic, was not like 2013 with rain the whole weekend, we had a great show. Thanks to all my show staff as well as all the volunteers, who make this show a success.

Everything is starting to come together for the Summer Sizzler. We have many activities lined up for the 6 day show. Starts on Tuesday with the Money Mania show held at 11am.

Our work bee is Sunday July 27 at 10am.
Please Note - Arrival time for all exhibitors is after 9am, on Monday July 28, 2014.

Reminder for the Summer Sizzler that we have a slightly different line up from last year. Our Money Mania is Tuesday July 29 at 11am, then we follow this with 2 AQHA show dates (July 30/31) start time 7:30am, (Novice/Rookie Trail only will be held at 5pm-8pm, Thursday July 31) - then Our All Novice/Rookie Show at 8am Aug 1, then followed by 2 AQHA show days (Aug 2/3) start time 730am
