The call for committee chairs and members is to be posted on the website as well as the members only section of Facebook.  Brent Phelps agreed to take responsibility for the Open Field.  Bob Caruthers volunteered to do water for sheep and dogs.

The Board unanimously approved donating the TSDA sanctioning fees for the trials benefiting Wayne Elmore and the World Trial Team (Brenham Ranch/Novice).

The discussion of the rules modifications was tabled until Bruce Hawn could attend and advise on the changes.

The Board discussed forming an ad hoc committee to review the qualifications necessary to attend the Finals. Board members were asked to think about who might be best to chair the committee.

It was brought to the Board’s attention that TSDA has been the host of the Fort Worth and San Antonio trials.  A motion was unanimously passed to offer Francis Raley the opportunity to be the host as she has many years of knowledge and experience in running both of these trials.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:35 pm.
