Guess who’s expecting! Buck and Andrea announced some very big and very exciting news today. I must admit, with all of the Eventer-Babies having been born in the last few years I find myself imagining the amazing team we’ll have by 2035. It will be like the X-Men of Eventing – except without that whole mutation thing. I’m not sure exactly where I was going with that, except to say it will be exciting to watch all of these wunderkinds come up the levels. Now, how small do you think they can make helmet covers and cross country vests?

One of Woodside’s own has been tragically affected by the Tassajara Fires, here in California. Cassie Harkins has played a tremendous role in the eventing community, not only as a Woodside volunteer but as head volunteer steward for cross-country. Cassie has been devoting her time long before many of us began competing at Woodside and has worn many hats, acting as the show secretary, course decorator, and chief caterer. Unfortunately, Cassie and her mother both lost their houses in the fire along with all of their possessions. Luckily, they were both physically unharmed as well as her beloved dog and they are currently living with her sister. The crew at Woodside has taken up a collection to buy her a Visa gift card to replace any immediate needs she may have. There is a collection jar in the show office where people may contribute with cash or check payable to Julie White. Any generosity will help Cassie through this tough time. We appreciate all of your generous donations to help Cassie get back on her feet! [Help Cassie Out]
