Important news from your BISC board.
Over the last 3 months your BISC board has been working hard to secure 501c3 non-profit status for our club. This non-profit status will help us to do a better job of protecting our facility as an equestrian community asset for the future, by allowing us to accept tax-deductible donations, conduct larger capital campaigns to make improvements and better serve our diverse members.
You are invited to review our revised bylaws, which have been carefully adjusted to meet the requirements of 501c3. Then join us to vote to approve these revised bylaws at a special meeting of members on Saturday, July 7 at the Saddle Club. We will be joined by our legal counsel in this endeavor, Kol Medina, who will be available to answer any questions you may have.
But it’s not all work and no play! We will start the day by hosting an informal games competition, with details below.
After our optional activity, enjoy a hosted barbeque lunch with all the fixings, followed by a meeting of members to approve our bylaw revisions with a vote.
With 501c3 compliant bylaws, we will be poised to file the paperwork toward a request for 501c3 status. It is our hope to receive a positive outcome in time to participate in the One Call for All campaign in the next calendar year.
Schedule of events:
9-11:30 Games competition (optional)
11:30-12 Barbeque lunch (optional)
12:30-1:30 Member meeting (required)
Please join us for this day of fun and fellowship together!
Games: We will set courses at 3 or 4 different heights to accommodate different ages and ability levels. Each schooling round will cost $3. The schooling rounds will be followed by an assortment of equestrian games: ride a "buck", egg & spoon and streamer team to name a few.... all free of charge. Also included is a casual BBQ lunch compliments of BISC. This is a member event but non members are welcome to ride too if they wish by simply joining the club :) . An "event" level, weekend membership is always an option. We hope to see you on the 7th.
Please let us know if you can come and click here if you need a stall. We will be holding a brief membership meeting to approve new By-Laws, to facilitate our transition back to non-profit status! So exciting :)
