Winter Round-Up January 19-21 in Aitkin County

Registration is now open for the 4-H Winter Round Up. Winter Roundup is an exciting three day, two night conference focused on adult and youth horse project leadership and activities in the 4-H Horse Project. The conference includes speakers and educational workshops with many hands-on activities. Topic areas include leadership skills, horse care and management, horse project activities such as horse judging, safety, hippology, Dan Patch and Youth Leadership Programs, Speech and Demonstrations, and much more. In addition to gaining information and activities to use, there are opportunities to share information, network with other horse project leaders and youth, make new friends, and just have fun! This conference is geared towards adult horse project leaders and youth grades 6 and above. Join us for a weekend you will remember!

For the past 24 years, Winter Round Up has been held in Spicer, MN in the Southwest portion of the state and the NE region and northern part of the state in general has had less than great participation.  Well, guess what!!!!!! The event has been moved to the Long Lake Conservation Center in Aitkin County this year! So it is MUCH closer for our kids in the NE!

This is a Friday-Sunday overnight retreat and is scheduled for January 19-21, 2018. We would LOVE to see a GREAT showing from the Northeast and it would be so fun to see many new youth get the opportunity to participate in this event as well! The registration form and flyer are included below. The registration is only $80 if postmarked by January 3, compared to $100 for later registration. Please get your registrations in ASAP to take advantage of the reduced rate.
