Fall Meeting 2014

Below are the registration form for the fall Coalition of State Horse Council meetings at beautiful Pere Marquette State Park and Lodge at the confluence of the Great Rivers in Illinois. Registration is accomplished through the American Horse Council, and the deadline for registration is October 14.

If you have not already made your reservations for the lodge, do so at your earliest convenience as the block of rooms is limited and this is a very popular time of year.  Our special rate and reserved room block expires on September 30.  Ask for the Coalition of State Horse Council group (or they have Horsemen's Council of Illinois down as an alternative name).  Don't wait until the last minute!

If you plan on camping rather than staying at the lodge, you can reserve a space a Pere Marquette State Park for the end of October through .  Reservations cease after October 31 and camping space is then on a first-come-first-served basis (finding a spot will not be a problem).  Camping fees are $10 without electric and $20 with electric.  Heated bathroom/shower facilities are available on site.  Overnight horse camping is not yet available at Pere Marquette.  If you are bringing a horse to extend your stay and trail ride, contact me and I will be happy to work with you on finding stabling for your horse(s).

In deference to Halloween, we will have a hat party during our welcome reception. Wear the best hat and win a prize!  Other optional activities are in the works.  I will inform you as they transpire.

To facilitate discussions about operations of each state Horse Council, I sent out a link to a survey in June.  To date, there have been only 10 responses.  Expect to see this in your inbox again.  I hope you will take the very short time needed to complete the survey and help us with information summaries for this meeting.

I hope to see many of you in the Fall!
