Dear all,

Following your feedback at the recent Annual Conference we would like to ask for your help to encourage as many Members as possible to have a look at the online versions of The Pony Club Annual.

Why Online? The Pony Club Annual was produced in an online format for 2012 following feedback from our Branches that distribution in the print current form was far from ideal, coupled the publication no longer enjoying the support of a title sponsor to help cover postage and print costs.

How Do Members Get Access? An email containing a link for download was sent directly to your Members, via the email address listed for them in the Membership Database, in both December and February. If your Members’ emails are not on the database or they have not received the email they can access a copy of The Annual via this link: //annual.pcuk.org or by following the link from the homepage of www.pcuk.org

Why do we want more views? We do recognise that the online format is an exciting, but different one, and we know for some a print copy would be preferred but sadly this option was not available to us for 2012. However, we plan to do some surveying around The Annual shortly, and in order to gauge an accurate range of opinions from our Membership we would very much like to encourage as may Members to view it as possible, so we can hear their opinions and look to improve it for them going forwards. As it is Half Term, we would be most grateful if you could remind them of where they can find The Annuals, and to have a look.
Thank you in advance of your help!

Llandyrnog District Fun Day Change of Date

Due to the snow drifts on the mountain and at Plas Dolben I am going to change the date of the Fun Day to Sat 27th April.
Even if the snow has all cleared by the 13th, the fields will be too wet to park and ride on.
Hope all members booked in will be able to make it.
