MEA Meeting, Thursday 25th August, 7.00pm Royal Hotel Cooma

This is an ordinary committee meeting with a number of items on the agenda. However, the showjumping subcommittee are hoping that MEA riders,  showjumpers or otherwise,  will make a special effort to come along to this meeting. Members need to show that they will support the MEA Spring Show Jumping Competition. If you can't come along to the meeting please tell someone (or Facebook MEA , or email secretary.mea.cooma@gmail.com) who is attending that you can help on the day, or prior to. With the memories of our Aussie showjumpers at Rio on TV last night, let's get behind the hard working MEA showjumpng subcommittee and keep this event as an annual spectacular for Cooma. Who knows where our next Matt Williams will come from. Let's make it the Monaro, and let's support the showjumpers.

Other items on the agenda are 

  •  2016-17 MEA Awards
  • Perpetual membership benefits for MEA Club Person Award winners
  •  Winter Jump Club/WEQ rally days
  • 2016-17 Grants Applications
