SRMGA 2018 May 5th Members meeting
The meeting room was called to order by board President Koben Shigeta at 8:31 p.m at the Payette County Fairgrounds May 5th, 2018.
In Attendance were Koben Shigeta, Kahla Shigeta, Donna Newman, George Newman, Samantha Davis, Dan and Patsy Walrath, Terry Watts, Autumn Davis, Charlene Wendt, Trevor Clemmons, Jolene Jolley, Kelsey Anderson, and Tammy Parks.
Koben said they are still working on the trailer. With the tax season winding down the accountant will now be able to work with DanWalrath so we can best decide how to purchase the trailer as a non profit.
Production sale lots will be available for purchase beginning July 1st, 2018. No lots are to be reserved until paid in full. The production sale will be September 15th at the Payette County fairgrounds. It will be a DV Auction again with the auctioneer used last year, Sam Baker and pedigree reader Rusty Lee.
Members can join at any time but must be a member by January 31st to participate in the production sale.
Samantha Davis suggested donating a lot to Junior SRMGA for a fund raising event. The juniors would contact breeders for potential semen donations that would be auctioned in the production sale. Proceeds would be used toward scholarships, and the youth program.
Jolene Jolley brought up an ABGA show that clashed with the production sale. Discussion was made about moving the sale up or down a week or two to accommodate for shows. It is something that will be further looked into but not something that will happen this year.
Jackpot Vs Open Show
There was discussion on the Saturday show day order. Members were asked if they prefer the youth show first or second. The decision was made to leave it as it is.
We have roughly $4200 in the Jr. SRMGA scholarship account.
$18,000 between the bank and paypal account
Those figures do not include the cargo trailer that will be purchased as well as laptop.
Koben motioned to approve the Treasurers report, Terry Watts seconded it.
