Hi Coaches,

Welcome to the beginning of another IEA season. By now you have probably begun your team practices, sent in all of your paperwork (in a neat and tidy package to the Membership Office) and have made your show calendars.

I would like to extent a heartfelt 'thank you' to all members in Zone 1 and let you all know that we have an extraordinary bunch of coaches, teams, horses, parents, etc. etc.. I am excited to begin another season with all of you!

As always, if you need anything or have any questions as we start, please don't hesitate to contact either myself or Shara in the Membership Office. The two of us work very closely, so if one can't return a call or email, the other will.

A gentle reminder that IEA Zones this year is being held on Friday, March 25th to Saturday, March 26th. Because this is a bit different then in previous years, please be sure to reference the prizelist (which should be up any day now on the website) for all of the info you will need. I would also strongly encourage you to send the link to your team parents so that they will have plenty of time to put the date on the calendar and plan.

I can tell you that the 2016 Zone 1 Finals, is going to hit it out of the park. We have received an incredible amount of feedback and representation from sponsors, have hired wonderful officials, and are eager to begin the hunt for the horses. We have new awards to present and incredible prizes (the best yet!!). Get your teams excited and set the Finals as your goal this year!

I have spoken to your Region Presidents and they should all be contacting you soon regarding additional planning for Semi Finals. Please be on the lookout for their correspondence.

And so with the first couple shows coming up the weekend of September 12th....

Good luck to everyone and let the luck of the draw, be ever in your favor!
