Come join us for the last club meeting of 2017 this Thursday at the Elks Lodge on Lewis Ave at 630pm. We will also be saying goodbye to Bruce and Cynthia Reierson as they move on with their lives to Fargo, ND. They have been an integral part of this club for many years and they will be sorely missed so join us in wishing them well and thank them for all their service.


The ribbon tying will be held at Charlotte Dowdy's place this year at 1805 Robin Ave in Lockwood on Sunday November 19th. Coming from Billings you will exit the freeway at Johnson Lane and take a right onto Johnson Lane. At the next light you will take a left onto Old Hardin Rd, follow Old Hardin Road until it curves to the left. after the curve go two blocks to Bluebird Street and take a left, go two blocks to Robin Ave and take a right, The very first driveway to the right is 1805 Robin Ave. It is a white stucco house with a detached white stucco garage. We will start at 3pm and have the potluck following the tying party. We will have enough tables but if you have some extra chairs to bring it would be appreciated. Bring whatever you like for the potluck we will supply the serving dishes and cutlery. It would be a good idea to bring your own drinks. We hope to see you there.

Sorry I forgot to post this earlier but there is a board meeting tonight at 6pm at the 4b's restaurant.

Due to scheduling conflicts and a lack of enough participants due to that we will be rescheduling the Wilderness training course for next April. When we have the exact date we will inform you at that time. We are not cancelling it just rescheduling for a time that will work better for everybody and allow us to have the course fresh in our minds for the start of the riding season. Thank You.

Thank You everybody and Have A Great Weekend.

We will be holding the Wilderness training course the 30th of September and October 1st. This is a two day ten hour training course that will cover urban first aid/cpr courses and advanced training in emergency courses for helping people in the field where emergency services are hours away. this will include transporting a patient to a safe pickup area, what to do if there are punctures, internal injuries, broken bones and many other areas. The course is $200.00 and definitely well worth the money. Sammi recently had an accident which could have ended badly but luckily it came out good. She has allowed us to post this video to show you how bad it could have been. If you are interested in this course you can contact me or any other officer to sign up.

Due to fires in Zortman the ride there has been cancelled and we are instead changing the ride to Benbow and Picket Pen for that weekend.
