Have you ever wondered, 'What is Competitive Trail Riding? (CTR)" Do you already CTR and know someone that wants to learn more about the sport? The BCCTRA is hosting its Annual Introduction to Competitive Trail Riding Workshop on April 1, 2017. The workshop’s classroom session will be led by BCCTRA President Tammy Mercer, who is renowned for her fun and interactive presentations. Once the classroom session is complete, riders and their horses will head out on a mock trail ride where you’ll put your morning learnings into action on the trail. The workshop is being held in Central Vancouver Island – near Parksville.
The workshop requires a minimum number of participants to proceed, which we are short of at this time. PLEASE share this information with anyone you think might be interested or know someone who might be interested.

This is an update about recent changes within the Board of Director.
A couple of weeks ago the Club held its annual AGM (required by the BC Society Act) and Awards. An important part of the AGM is the election of the new Board of Directors (or Club Executive).
This year's elections saw a few changes. Long-time BCCTRA Members/riders and committed Club volunteers Jo Hull-Sykes and Del Lenk stepped down as the Central/North Island Director and South Island Director, respectively. Bev Voight was elected as the new Central/North Island Director and Miki Dekel was elected into the same South Island role. As well, Caroline Williams stepped down as Public Relations Director. Keir Gervais (me) was elected to replace Caroline. Lastly, Sharon Michno stepped down as Points/Mileage Caretaker, and Claire Viti has agreed to fill the role (in addition to her Treasurer role) temporarily.
On behalf of the BCCTRA Board and all its Members, thank you Jo, Del, Caroline and Sharon for your service and commitment to the Club, and congratulations and thank you Miki, Bev, Keir and Clair for agreeing to volunteer in your respective roles towards making the Club the best it can be.
Members can find contact info for all of the Board on the Contact Us page on the website.
The BCCTRA can always use volunteer assistance for various roles. Contact myself or any other Board member if you would like to become further involved in our Club.
