We continue to ‘get stuff done’.
1. Our biggest project right now is deciding what to do the Horseflicks film about. We’ve voted to put $1000 in from the ATAA towards it (Amrita, Cathy, Betsy, Jas, Catrina voted yes). We need to decide;
a. Our message – this is a series sponsored by ALBC and is about endangered breeds. We need a clear message as to why the Akhal-Teke is special, worth saving and why more people should have one.
b. Where to film and if we can do more than 1 day of filming.
i. The obvious place is at the Annual Conference, but it is a bit later than Jon wants to film (October). Would enough horses come to make it worthwhile? If we do film there, do we do an extra day of the Conference JUST for filming?
ii. If we do another place, where and for what purpose? Jon is being very generous and will do it pretty much for his travel, but we still need a plan. Something in summer to highlight the sheen? At an Expo? Seeing horses meet people, kids, etc? Have a Teke show? (that would be pretty short notice though and very hard to get done) Or, go somewhere where several will be competing? Maybe have people do video on their own to be wrapped into the film? It wouldn’t be professional, but ??
2. New members and renewals continue to come in. We’re up to 44 members, with several being ranch members. I’m sure renewals and new memberships will continue to come in, but today is the cut off for people being able to vote this year in the General Election.
3. Registrations continue to be processed. More and more people are sending registrations in, as they find out the process is working.
Great job everyone,
