Happy New Year! 1 hope your holiday season was a good one! It is always to good have the season here but I sure was glad to see 2007 go! Before I get down to business, let me take a few moments and introduce myself, for those of you that do not know me. I am Angie Borck the ORSCA Secretary for the next couple of years. I am happily married to Sam Borck, my husband of 3 years. We have black Clydesdales, mostly geldings and one stallion (who may end up a gelding), and the mare at our farm is our Clyde/ Saddlebred cross mare "Georgia" (aka "Moose"). We show primarily in hitch classes, but have done an occasional halter class. We tend to like the county fairs and state fair shows the best. But enough about us, let's get down to business...
I have taken the secretary job over from Anita Guiher, who has done a tremendous job for the last several years, I have BIG shoes to fill! Please if you have any suggestions or input for how you would like the newsletter to be let me know, I will do my best, but be patient with me. I plan on having 4 newsletters out every year. Anita did them in the early apart of the year and then 3 more around the season change, so January, March, June, and September. I will be getting things together around the 2-3 weeks for those months, if you have something you would like in the newsletter please get it to me during those weeks. How to reach me? Above is our address, phone numbers, email, and fax number. Please keep in mind that my cell number is always the best number to reach me. I have voice mail that I check several times a day on my cell number.
