The annual membership fee of $100 per individual or family will allow access to the indoor and outdoor arenas for open riding unless the facility is booked for an event, i.e. during Rodeo week, the county fair, 4-H events, and occasional bookings for other events.

Those individuals/families purchasing a membership in December will receive the month of December at no additional charge and their membership will be valid through December 31, 2013. Membership fees collected will go towards utilities, insurance, and upkeep of the building as well as future improvements and to provide free use of the facility for scheduled 4-H club events.

If you need an additional Christmas gift or stocking stuffer, there are a few remaining copies of the 4-H Family Cookbook that will be available for purchase. The 4-H Beef Weigh-in will be taking place that morning, so visitors are asked to please park where they will not interrupt the flow of trailers for the weigh-in.
