Help Grow our GMO! 

WDCTA is looking for new members! You can help, and earn a chance to be rewarded!

One lucky member will be given a Free Pass to Saturday’s dinner, keynote speaker and evening Awards program at WDCTA’s Annual Meeting, Awards Presentation, Silent Auction and Educational Program, $50 value! The clinic with Debbie A. Rodriguez will take place March 17 & 18, 2018, at Rosebury Farm, Mukwonago, WI. The Saturday evening dinner, speaker & Awards program will be held from 5 pm to 9 pm, at the Thunder Bay Restaurant in Pewaukee, WI.

Saturday night’s keynote speaker will be Debbie A. Rodriguez, who is a USEF “S” Dressage judge, an FEI 3 Star Dressage judge, an “R” Eventing judge, as well as an ISSA personal trainer who developed the “Success in the Saddle: Core Fitness for Equestrians” program!

You can earn one chance to win the Free, Saturday Evening Dinner & Program for each new member you refer who joins WDCTA by Feb. 17, 2018.

Rules for the drawing for the Free Pass to Saturday evenings’ activities:

  1. A “New” member is defined as someone who was not a WDCTA member in 2017.
  2. The new member must include your name as their Referring Person on their membership for when they send it in. We will not be adding referral names retroactively, after the membership form has already been submitted.
  3. Referring members must be current, 2018, adult members of WDCTA to qualify for this drawing.
  4. 4. New members who joined before this announcement, who already included the name of their referring member, will automatically have their referring member’s name included in the drawing!
  5. Successful referral of one Individual or Business membership will give you one chance in the drawing. Successful referral of a Junior or Young Rider (they must give their birth date on their application form!) will earn you two chances in the drawing! A successful Family membership will earn you one chance for the new adult members plus 2 chances for each qualifying Junior or Young Rider! (Again, birth dates are required for Juniors and Young Riders.)
  6. Junior and Young Riders must include their birth dates on their application form!
  7. There is no limit to how many entries you can earn by successful referrals of new people who join WDCTA!
  8. All new memberships and payments must be received no later than Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018 to be included in this drive!
  9. If the winner of the drawing is unable to attend, a new name will be drawn. No substitutions.
  10. If the winner has already submitted their payment for the event before being notified that they have won the drawing, WDCTA will happily reimburse them for the $50 cost of the evening program!

So, hurry! Talk to your friends and boarding buddies whom may be interested in the many benefits of being a WDCTA member. Encourage them to join! You could be our winner!
