Alpharetta, GA March 9, 2004

   Spring is on it's way.  We are looking forward to the warm weather, longer days ahead.

Applewood spring flowers in bloom

  We had a fun at the GDCTA awards banquet held this year at the Atlanta Athletic Club.  Brad Thatcher photographed the awards presentations, Amanda Persons acted as Brad's scribe to keep track of the awards and photo numbers. She also served at the greeting and name card table.  Laura Thatcher provided a memorable closing of the event with her humorous announcements of the silent auction winners. People won't leave early next year...

Scenes from the Wellington Dressage show...

 It was great to be in sunny Florida in February.  Amanda and Jacinda packed up 3 horses and hit the road.  Brad packed his camera and met them down there for the show.
