GKCAHA Delegates Mike Grimm and Helen Alfaro attended the AHA Annual Convention in Myrtle Beach, SC November 9-12, during the week of a rainy tropical storm passing through. Despite the chilly weather, we did enjoy a chilly walk on the beach, and a post-convention seaside lunch with two other delegates from Region 11. But more importantly, we engaged with hundreds of other delegates in voting on 14 resolutions that affect us and other Arabian horse enthusiasts throughout the AHA membership. We also participated (on the winning team) in a Trivia Night competition to benefit the Arabian Horsemen's Distress Fund. The event raised several thousand dollars for this charitable organization that provides financial relief for members of the Arabian horse community suffering catastrophic losses or injuries. On Friday evening during the Awards Banquet, we donned our show-ring attire and took part with several other AHA members in a fashion show to highlight a variety of riding disciplines.
