    Dear Members and Prospects,

    The website is now ready to accept your membership renewals and new signups for the upcoming season!  Your old accounts and profiles have been wiped away to make way for new profile fields and membership levels. All of us will need to proceed to the MEMBERSHIP - JOIN NOW menu to create an all-new fresh account.  The membership term ends on March 1, so don't wait.  

    Membership applications are PAPERLESS beginning this year as part of our emphasis on simplification and cost management.  This means that if you haven't completed the membership application online before the first show, you will be able to use your mobile device or an office iPad or laptop to fill it out at the show office window and submit it there on the spot! However, given how crazy show mornings can be, you will definitely want to leisurely take care of this before you arrive.  

    Membership dues may be paid online with credit card or Paypal when completing your application, or you may mail in a check with your printed invoice. Cash is also accepted at the show office window.

    We will still need a hardcopy of your parent-signed liability waiver and club use agreement if you don't already have that one on file from a previous year. We regret that your membership cannot be approved until this is provided. 

    You will notice a few changes online:  

    • All individual riders will now use a single INDIVIDUAL membership level, regardless of age
    • Non-riding members may choose a lower cost SUPPORT membership level
    • Trainers now get to choose amongst the INDIVIDUAL or FAMILY memberships
    • We all are asked to specify our DOB to help point calculations run efficiently.  (Don't worry, we will keep this info close to our chest!)
    • We are also asked to specify a favorite area(s) to help with club operations.  As a volunteer member organization, we are asking that all members target a minimum of 6 hours of volunteer time each year. There is a wide range of onsite as well as remote jobs to choose from to fit your interests and needs.
    • Membership cards are now available to print from you profile page!

    Many other organizational and content changes were made on the website as well, with the intent to simplify and clarify.  We still have a ways to go, but we hope you will agree that we are making progress!

    It's all pretty intuitive, but if you have questions or suggestions along the way, please don't hesitate to contact Jackie Flannery at 206-747-1734. Texting is usually best.

    Saturday 2/2, 9am-12pm, has been designated an EQUESTRIAN TRAIL WORK PARTY at Manzanita Park, adjacent to the Club. This is an opportunity to groom the trails at Manzanita Park (rather than our equines) and show the community that we truly appreciate the use of the park trail system.

    It's also an opportunity to support BI Parks & Rec who maintains the trails we use and love, as well as the access road to our Club!

    Also come hear about the effort underway to renovate the cross country jumps and how you might get involved... AND, a brief BISC general member meeting will immediately follow at the Club that members are encouraged to attend.

    Don't forget to bring work gloves, shovels, loppers, clippers, etc and please RSVP on Nextdoor Bainbridge or to so we can help BI Parks & Rec know how many to expect.  Community service hours will be offered.

    Hope to see you there!

    P.S. Save the date for our annual BISC Spring Cleanup on Saturday, 3/23.

    We have a slight changing of the guards...

    Jackie Chipman has decided to decline the position of vice-president for 2019.  She is going to stay true to her earlier personal conviction that it is time for her to step down from the board after many years.  However, she has promised not to disappear completely so you will still see her around the club!  Please join me in a hearty thanks for her lengthy and devoted service.  BISC is truly indebted to her.

    Please welcome Pam Knudsen into the VP role!  Pam was already voted onto the Board at the 2018 Annual Members meeting & Awards Banquet in October.  She is a long time horse owner, private barn owner, current dressage rider and past board member of other clubs, who you will find is very capable, enthusiast and full of energy and great ideas.  Welcome, Pam!

    Do you have some fun footage that you would like to share?  We are collecting photos from 2018 Saddle Club events to display in our slide show at the Nov 3 Annual Members Awards Banquet.  Please send your favorite pics to Delaney or Bryna by 10/28.  If you have a lot of high resolution files, using an Apple shared album or Dropbox may be best.

    Hope to see you at the banquet!

    While we like our rain, we prefer not to be wet and shivering while trying to appreciate a glass of vino and the finer points of dressage!

    So, the wine tasting event has been postponed to tomorrow:

     Saturday, 10/6
    BISC Main Arena and Clubhouse

    Come catch the last hour of the dressage competition amidst our glorious DRY fall weather.  Enjoy local wines with delicious cheeses and salami around the roaring fire pit and twinkling lights.  A magical time indeed...

    Hope you will join us.

    The main arena is now closed in preparation for the upcoming Dorothy Hamilton Clinic this Sat and Sun.  Sorry for any inconveniance.
