|Safe Sport: – Clarification from Linda Hazelwood – There is no liability conferred with sponsoring a junior rider. The sponsor must have a NCCP number. If a rider has no NCCP number they must pay a $5 fee. A junior rider must ride with an adult rider who is called a sponsor/mentor. This does not confer liability for the sponsor/mentor. – Donna reported that the Hunter Jumper riders pay an additional $5 a day if they don’t have a coach with a NCCP number.|

Sandilands, September 12, 2020 – Iris is waiting to complete the permit for Sandilands. Iris will respond to an email received from the Tree Planters saying that they will be using the horse campsite until June 1st. There is the option of using the campsite used last year but that area may be a bit tight for some of the larger rigs. MEC, September 20, 2020 – No ride manager Other possible rides – Carrie will contact Shannon to see if she would consider being a ride manager in BHP in July or Aug. 8. Iris emailed Maura to see what her plans are for July 11 and 12 and is waiting for a reply. There was discussion regarding how to run rides during Covid. Suggestions included only having preregistration, no food provided, no ribbons. Limit personnel to vet, scribe, time keeper, send out teams of two riders at a time and increase time between riders leaving. Another meeting is required to plan rides and protocols For 2020 according to Covid guidelines. Need direction from the Province.||Iris Carrie Iris|
