Turquoise Trail Wranglers Lose a Club Leader

It is with great sadness that I tell you that one of our club leaders, Mr Chad Winters, lost his life in a car accident on County road 44 off of State road 14 Friday evening.

Chad was an outstanding young man and having worked side by side with him for many months building our arena was both a pleasure and an honor. Our arena will stand as a constant reminder to us of Chad's dedication to our club, 4-H, and the young people of our county.

Please remember him and his family in your prayers.

Post Script: Visitation for friends & family will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at McGee Memorial Chapel, with remembrance service to follow. He will be buried at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Manassa, Colo. .

TTW Club Meeting February 15th, 2009

Howdy TT Wranglers,

Our next Turquoise Trail Wranglers Club meeting will be a free clinic held on Sunday February 15th, at 1 p.m.

The clinic is with world renowned horse trainer Rex Peterson (see his website: Rex has trained horses for movies such as Appaloosa, Flicka, Black Beauty, Dreamer among many others. He will be demonstrating how he works with his movie horses, as well as how to teach your horse ground manners and respect while grooming, tacking and mounting. Tips that we can all use for a lifetime of safe horse handling.

Although we have room for all our Wranglers and family, we only have room for so many horses so please let us know as soon as possible if you are attending and want to bring your horse or not.

Club members please check your e-mail for more information.

Looking forward to a great 2009!

Rick and Nancy
