There is also a queen contest as a fundraiser to help with the year-end awards. 

AARC NEWSLETTER:

"It's that time again!  The days are getting longer and it's time to pull the horses out of the pasture, dust the cobwebs off the saddles and start riding!

This year, we have 2 new officers: JACKIE BROWN, President; and DAYNA BROWN, Secretary/Treasurer.  We are so excited about the new ideas, and enthusiasm that these ladies are bringing to the playdays.

For the 2014 season, we are going to have the playdays on Friday evenings.  The books will open at 6:00PM and the Grand Entry will be at 6:55PM. Our events will be: Flags, Barrels, Stakes, Poles, and Rings.  To qualify for the year-end awards, you must compete in 70% of the playdays.

Our age divisions are:
BEGINNERS: 6 yrs and under
PEANUTS: 9yrs and under
PEE WEE: 10-13 yrs
JUNIORS: 14-18 yrs
SENIORS: 19-39 yrs
40 and Over.

Membership dues will be $25 for an individual, $40 for a family.  Dues must be paid before points will count towards year-end awards.  Entry fees will be $3 per even for lead line, $4 per event for members, $5 for Barrel exhibitions, and $5 per event for non-members.  Birth certificates are required for Peanuts, Pee-Wees, and Juniors.  A negative Coggins is required for all horses.

SADDLES will be awarded to YOUTH classes. 
BUCKLES will be awarded to SENIORS class and up.
Please join us on Facebook (Ada Area Round-Up Club) for more information and events that will be happening throughout the summer.  We hope that everyone comes and joins us this year for a fun-filled summer of riding and hanging-out with old friends and making lots of great memories!"

We regret to announce that Naomi Wells
, who took such great care of our
concession stands at 3Crosses, passed away Thursday Feb 7, 2013.

We hope everyone will join us in consoling her son Jack Wells who keeps  our arena going. The two of them put their heart and
soul into their work. They both had a fervor for serving that is rarely found. We love her and will miss her.
