CONFIRMATION- of Treemakers & Fitting Day
We have confirmation on several fronts, so lets go thru them.
We have corrected the dates of this gathering, and hope you attend and enjoy the day with us.
DATE- June 5th of 2008, as the date for an official Treemaker & Saddle Fitting Day. It will be held here on the ranch. We will have both David Morris and Dennis Lane in attendance for the "Lane Card Fitting System" demonstration.
COST- we have priced this one day clinic at $65.00 per person for the day. You are welcome to bring up to 2 horses for a fitting if you would like. Keep in mind this is a ranch, not a boarding facility. So the ammenitites are just as you would expect on a ranch, and not what you would expect from a boarding facility.
LANE-FITTING CARDS in thier first test version will be available for purchase at the clinic should you be interested. I did talk to Dennis about this facet of the presentation, and he and David assured me that this would be the case..........they approximated the price of a cared pack at $50.00 but depending on several factors that could change a little. So we need to be a little flexible with this option till they get the manufacturing figured out.
WHAT WILL WE DO- The day will be spent listening to David&Dennis reason thier way thru why the card fit system will work better for all of us, no matter which end of the business spectrum you find yourself on. We will be placing the cards on my horses as demos, unless you bring your horse for us. We will also be taking photo's of the horses for cataloging efforts.........and if the horse owner is real pretty................well we will photograph her as well.
LUNCH- like I said, best you bring something, a sack lunch and a few cold drinks. It is about a 20 minute drive down the mountain into Coalinga from here, so running to town for lunch may not be the best option. We will have something going here on the ranch as well, so I doubt any of us will loose to large a percentage of gross body fat for the day.
DIRECTIONS- Here are a few directions to help you find us. The ranch is known locally as the Vandyke Ranch, that is if you get lost and are asking a local for help. The proper address is 47069 Crump Lane, HC1, Box 34 Coalinga, California. The last time I checked the Google map thing had a hard time finding us, but the ranch is situated on Highway 198, we are west of the town of Coalinga 16 miles, which is from Perko's Cafe in town to my mailbox or lane. If by chance you are coming in from my west, you will be coming on Highway 101 iether north or south, and looking for the Highway 198 off ramp. The off ramp is located about 7 miles south of KingCity. Now from that off-ramp to my house is 36 miles, I know, becasue I ride it all the time on my bike.
LOST- call the house 559-935-2172 or my wifes cell 559-355-7948
We do look forward to seeing all of you. Tell your friends, and invite them along. We are not specifying that you be a saddlemaker or tree maker, but want as many of them as we can get so we can place the idea for the cards and maybe the actual cards in your hands in order that we can have the greatest impact. ONe more thing, if you do plan on attending, please let us know ahead of time.
All the best and God Bless from, Jeremiah Watt
