To all RMTPA members,
The 2017 RMTPA Board has had three meetings (February 24th, March 22nd, and April 13th). We have reviewed the current financial status and discussed a potential event schedule for this year.
It was determined that given the number of currently scheduled events both locally and nationally which draw our membership, we found no weekend opportunities open in April and May to produce an event. Further, it was determined that the weather volatility in March was too risky to consider producing an event. Therefore we were focusing on June, July, and August for potential opportunities.
We have been unable to find an affordable arena for a June event so we have abandoned that idea.
We have decided to hold a joint show with USTPA in Estes Park over 4th of July weekend. Although the 4th holiday falls on Tuesday this year, the arena is unavailable on Monday and Tuesday due to the start of the Estes Rodeo. So the show will have to run Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday.
Please reserve the dates of Friday June 30th through Sunday July 2nd for this fun show.
In addition, we have reserved the Gilpin County Fairgrounds in Black Hawk for a two-day RMTPA event in August.
Please reserve the dates of Saturday August 5th and Sunday, August 6th for this event.
Due to the lack of dates and difficulty finding arenas and cattle, we are unable at this time to address potential clinics or practices. However, we will encourage membership support for anyone willing to sanction a show, conduct a clinic or put on a practice by notifying our membership via Facebook and our website.
We will continue to work diligently on behalf of our members.
