Wondering how you can help the club?
- It would be great if someone could weed whack around the club, along the sides and in the front.
- The two trees on either side of the front door have suckers that need to be clipped away.
- Weeds can be pulled and put on the pile by the arena.
- Any prairie dog holes on the property can be packed with rocks to make them safe.
- There are pieces of wood that were cut from the posts around the arena – they can be gathered and stacked near the judges booth or taken away, especially anything with nails in it !
- If you happen to find rocks in the arena or round pen, please toss them out. If there are lots of rocks, pile them up for filling prairie dog holes.
- These are just some quick ideas – anything that anyone can do is wonderful!
Living Tree Windbreak and Living Legacy Arena
The wind break project has some small wind guards available to the members at $5 a piece. There may be rabbit guards available with the bamboo stakes for .68 cents a piece. If you are interested please call Marilee Sorensen at 527-4414!
Each row of the 3-row windbreak will be 300′ long, consisting of Cotoneasters on the first row, Colorado Blue Spruce on the second row, and Sumac on the wind/western side of the plantings.
Fabric “weed barrier” will be placed on each row and each tree will have a wind guard. Staples will hold the weed barrier in place. A drip irrigation system will be planned and placed for adequate watering.
The Living Legacy Arena will be at the Obstacle Course to the back of the clubhouse. These will be trees planted with a plaque in memorial of a special person or animal of the donor’s choice. Adequate fencing will be placed around each tree for protection from deer. These shade trees will enhance the arena and be of comfort to riders, horses and visitors to events in the arena.
