Show schedule for the Blackjack Saddle Club has been updated with events set for the next two weekends.
The first point show planned for the season was canceled due to a muddy arena, according to Justine Staten, club president. That show is now set for Saturday, June 9, 9 o’clock, at Cico Park in Manhattan.
However, there is the point show as originally scheduled this Saturday, June 2, at the Stanley Stout Center at 9 o’clock.
While all shows are open to the public, club members’ points are tabulated for yearend awards.
Performance and speed events are planned with competition divided into age groups. Awards are to be presented to the top six riders in each class.
Highpoint awards will be given in both performance and speed divisions of each age category.
Additional point shows include Saturday, July 7, Stanley Stout Center; Saturday, Aug. 11, Cico Park; Sunday, Sept. 2, Cico Park; and Sunday, Oct. 7, Cico Park.
All shows start at 9 o’clock, but speed events will not begin before 1:30.
A fund raising raffle is being conducted for a new pair of Ariat boots given by The Outpost. Tickets are available from Staten and can also be purchased at this Saturday’s show before the drawing that day.
“Black Jack Saddle Club is dedicated to our members,” Staten said. “We strive to make each event a pleasant and safe environment for all participants.”
