Equestrian Center Report: Lynda Arnold
  Lynda Arnold reported the water was turned on at the Center in preparation for the seasons events and a microphone is broken and needs to be replaced. Lynda also reported that a user at the Center reported the poor condition of one of the cross country jumps (Howard County Pony Club jump.) Since CCEC is a volunteer organization, Carolyn Garber volunteered to contact the person who reported the condition of the jump to recruit volunteers to repair the jump. Lynda reported the telephone calls have been made to provide the new combination to the locks on the rings to those members who have a current Rules/Release on file.
  Peggy Miller reported fence boards were replaced prior to the 4/29/18 show. Peggy indicated there is still one section at the Center that is not being mowed that is to be included in the mowing. Lynda will contact Les Phelps to provide the information to him.
  Lisa Carroll indicated nothing to report.
