October 2021 News & Updates

High Point Count:

A new count for October has been added to SHOW page, please review and if you have questions or changes please contact me before Oct. 30, 2021. No changes will be made after this date unless approved by UCWHA Board.

2021 Banquet:

Please make plans to attend banquet scheduled for Nov 20, 2021 starting at 6:00pm. Location is same as 2019 banquet at Bilbrey Farms in Sparta, TN. Pat Stout will be sending more information next month so please mark your calendar and join us for fellowship and good food.

UCWHA By- Law amendment:

An Upper Cumberland Walking Horse Association committee meeting was held last week, a motion was made and approved by board to amend the UCWHA By-Laws to decrease the size of the Board of Directors from 13 to 9, and to decrease the number of Board members to constitute a quorum from 8 to 5.  The Board of Directors would then be made up of 4 Officers of the Association, the immediate Past President, and 4 Directors.  Due to the decrease in Club membership over the years, this seems to be a more appropriate number representing our club.

This amendment will be voted on by memebership during the annual meeting. To review by-laws, go to HOME page and click on link.

Anyone interested on serving on board or officers please contact me by Nov. 1st at ibwalkin@dtccom.net or 615-464-5047.
