The VSC directors recently reviewed and updated all of our annual and perpetual awards to make them even more inclusive for the upcoming competition season. Some of the major changes include expanding to formally include awards for Para Equestrian both Bronze and FEI; for Western Dressage; the inclusion of one score from the Wild and Wooly Series being hosted by Bonita Farm and Fairlawn toward annual awards; and a slight change in the required percentages for the FEI Junior and Youth Beuzelin Family Perpetual Award.

As you will know from the recent announcement, our Victoria Saanich Cadora awards celebration and AGM is being held on Sunday December 3rd., at 2 pm in the Oak Room at Saanich Fairgrounds. This isn't really a reminder but a request for your help and suggestions to make the afternoon even more special.
We have three member nominated perpetual awards and are now looking for your suggestions of deserving members to receive these awards. Here are the descriptions of each of the three awards:
