The October meeting was held at Altitude Chophouse on October 4, 2016 at 7:00.  In attendance were Kelly, Jennifer, Mary Lynne,  Ginka, Anna, Connie, Tammy and Stephanie.  At 7:15 Kelly called the meeting to order.

Stephanie read the September minutes.

Tammy provided the Treasurer’s report.  We currently have a balance of $4,682.64.

Old Business

Post Office Box

Kelly will get a post office box for OTB.  That will make mail consistent and our address will not have to be changed as officers change.  Tammy moved to approve the expenditure.  Ginka seconded the motion.  Motion passed.

Recognized Show

Stephanie will try to get together with Heather when her schedule allows.

We also need to understand the timeline and when we have to make a decision by.


Kentucky Derby Party

  • Stephanie emailed with people at Wyoming Downs about working with them for para mutual betting at the event.  She will follow up on progress.

Dancing with the Stars


Jessica contacted Stephanie Soule (as reported by Connie)

Connie contacted Kathy Dusser.  She is $85/lesson, which includes her travel costs.

Mary Lynne suggested we explore a clinic with Jessica Greer

Connie will also check on Petra Warlimont for cost and availability

We will likely have to postpone a clinic until spring because it’s getting too late in the year for most people.
