2012 SWPC Convention Recap

The 2012 SWPC “Wasach Passage” Convention was a huge success. According to Registrar Carole VanVleet 134 people attended, coming from 27 states, Canada, and Ireland.

Thirty-one airplanes flew in to Ogden and registered for the convention; click HERE to read about the award winners.

Everyone had a wonderful time. Congratulations to co-chairs John and Linda Parrish and all the convention volunteers for making this one of the most memorable conventions in our proud SWPC history.

Thanks to our members generous contributions and sales from the SWPC Store, five scholarships were awarded by the Educational Foundation.

You can start getting yourself in a “New York State-of-Mind” by looking forward to the 2013 convention in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Spa City. Our Colts should feel right at home with all the horses around there.
