Many of us are coming in on Thursday.  NWPFHA will be paying your camping fees and park fees again this year.  You must let Linda Holzer know if you are coming for an overnight so campsites can be paid for prior to your arrival.  There are no reservations this time of the year so all are first come, first served but we will be coming in on Thursday so we aren't anticipating any difficulty in securing sites and corrals for our horses.  Even if the campsites fill up, there is plenty of room to camp in the meadow and corrals out there too.

We are planning to ride, ride, ride!!  At this time, no plans or times have been arranged.  We will do that when we're all together.  If you would like to plan a scavenger hunt, please do so.  We have a couple of nice prizes never awarded last  year we would love to give away.
