October 2013 BSDC Newsletter


I can’t believe it’s October and the autumn is upon us!  The Black Swamp Driving Club still has some events going on. Here is the list of things yet to come:
October 19th, Hites Log Cabin Drive, Kenton, Ohio (confirmed)

November 16th, Annual Banquet, Arlington, Ohio, at the Good Hope Lutheran Church
**** Please note the date change for the banquet****

This is the list of events that we have on the schedule for the rest of the season. We still have several things scheduled.  As always, please refer to the BSDC Newsletter for updates and changes that may occur. Sometimes things may change or be canceled and I will not have enough time to make the correction in the article, so check the newsletter, and you might even get a phone call if things change at the last minute.

Please plan to attend the Annual Banquet. It will be a little different this year, so please watch the newsletter for details.

We have had a wonderful driving season so far this year and the members have made it a safe one as well. Thanks to the members that are making the drives successful. Without your support  it couldn’t be done. It’s fun to host events, but even more fun when the people enjoy the effort put forth by the host.

The Board of Directors have made some changes to better direct the club. You will notice a change in communication with the members so please watch for details in the BSDC Newsletter. Also, if you are interested in becoming an officer, please let us know. We would like to put your name on the ballot for voting. You can contact any board member and we can forward the information. It would be great if you could put together a profile about yourself so we can let others know about you. It doesn’t  have to be fancy, just some things that would be interesting to know.

I want to take this time to “Thank” everyone for a great term in being reporter for the BSDC. I will be leaving the board of directors and you will have a new reporter. I am not sure who will be taking over, but that will be announced later. As reporter, it is difficult to prepare the articles without information from the members. Please remember to forward any news item, picture, or updates so we can continue reporting to our membership. Thanks to the Equine Journal for all of their help and consideration. It has been a pleasure to be your reporter and to send information to you each month. Until things are worked out with the new reporter, please send me any information and I can forward it on. Thanks again, it has been GREAT!!!!

If any members have people that are interested in joining the club, please bring them along to an event. That way others can see what the club is doing and what we are all about. We always have an open invitation for anyone to come and join us. If you are interested in joining the club, or observing our events, please let us know. You can contact me at higgy122@gmail.com or call 740-251-7193, I will be glad to help in any way I can.
It would be great to have some new members added to the club.

As always, I am requesting pictures of the events so I can add them to the article. They play an important part of our activities. It seems like we can get pictures for the newsletter but they don’t seem to make it for the journal. So if anyone has pictures for the article please send them to me at higgy122@gmail.com  I will be glad to attach them to the article. 

This is all the information I have for this month. 

Until next month,


Roger Higgins Jr. / Reporter
