At this point, have Pres, (my friend) VP, (me) and Treas/Sec, (moron kid's dad) and a fluctuating group. Only had 5 meetings maybe? Titles are more like ribbon and sash type thing, rather than "We will be in charge" thing.
No board members.
And no instructors at all. No one in charge just informal like a quilting group, which is a major part of this problem now that you all have been helping me mull this over. Several things mentioned are things I hadn't thought about, although HAD thought about getting sued.
And no structure at all to date. Just nothing. Show up, ride, leave.
Have meeting on horseback for maybe 10 minutes, about wanting to have barrel racers come and use arena and we do concessions, to raise money.
But there is no one on ground at all to instruct. Majority of riders are 30's, and several 50ish give or take some. A couple of 20's. NO rules, no Codes of Conduct, no nothing.
Just get together at arena and ride around, or get run over as case may be.
Up here? Helmets are not the norm at all. Very rural.
Keep ideas coming as hadn't thought about laying out rules?????
Maybe Executive meeting is in order???
