Hi friends and supporters of the UGA Manedawgs. April has finally arrived and brought warm, spring days. The team is training hard to bring home a National Championship from Waco in a few weeks and what better way to show our love and support than to attend the end of year awards' banquet on Saturday, April 26. This is a team event and ALL parents are encouraged to attend. Registrations are being received on a daily basis by mail or through our online ordering system on the team website If you haven't confirmed your attendance yet please do so – you will be missed if you aren't there and we've got a really special LIVE auction event you don't want to miss! As much as I'd like to keep it a secret I just can't……it's too special! Coach Boenig's dad has graciously offered to design not 1 but 2 tack trunks for us this year…..a RED and a BLACK! If you haven't attended the annual spring banquet in the past you'll want to this year so that you can participate in the LIVE AUCTION to bid on one of the trunks. Each year the girls look forward to being the "ONE" that takes that special trunk home.

We've worked hard to plan a perfect menu with many food choices you are sure to love (don't want to miss out on the chocolate bread pudding with bourbon sauce or the mixed berry fruit trifle). So come enjoy a relaxed evening with the team and get to know those families you may not have had a chance to meet during the year. We'll be saying our good-byes to the senior girls who will be greatly missed but we'll also be looking forward with excitement to the start of another great UGA Equestrian year.

A little tidbit of advice: This year our event coincides with two proms being held at our venue along with a downtown weekend bike race so the parking could be more than a bit tight. Our banquet starts at 6:30pm which is a good bit earlier than the proms start; however, I would recommend trying to arrive as early as possible or trying to carpool to ensure adequate parking spaces. Some of the downtown streets will even be cordoned off to accommodate the race participants. The Classic Center has a large parking deck on the rear of the building but it is open to the public on a first come first serve basis.

I want to take this time to personally thank Janet Gallagher for her help with the banquet. She's allowed me to bend her ear and has offered advice and even attended a venue planning meeting. She has become my informal "Co-Chair" and I am grateful for her help. Give her a pat on the back when you see her at the banquet! As always, if you have any questions feel free to email or call.
