Triple Crown is now a sponsor of the APA! They have made a large investment in polocrosse this year with the Minnesota Polocrosse Club and they have also created an APA special program! It’s available to all current 2017 APA members to help your club’s fundraising and promotional efforts. Simply by feeding your horse Triple Crown feeds, you can raise money for your club to fund polocrosse growth in your community! Buy 10 50lb bags and you will get $25 for your club! Post your horse success stories on social media to help measure the success of the program for Triple Crown. And at 4 pre-selected tournaments this year, Triple Crown will be asking Minnesota Polocrosse to help provide Best Horse awards, raffles and registration gifts. Minnesota Polocrosse will be managing this Triple Crown/APA pilot program. Click here for more detailed information.
We need your input! The 2017 Business Development Committee has developed a plan to help the APA grow as an organization through new membership, retaining membership, and increasing sponsor support. The committee believes that the best way to create a plan is by first gathering input from our members. So to do that we have created a survey to share with our members. The results of this survey will provide the committee with valuable information regarding the demographics of our membership and what factors APA members feel are the most important to creating a better organization for them and their clubs.
But we can’t do any of this without your input! So we are asking you to please take the time to thoughtfully complete the survey. And as an exciting bonus, those that complete the survey by March 15th will be entered in a raffle to win a prize! Our grand prize is a a basket from Polocrosse Gear including a ThinLine pad (retail price $108), Uckele poultice (retail around $40) and a Piranha fly-spray; our second place prize will be an APA vest and ball cap; and third place will be an APA ball cap and license plate cover.
Click here to complete the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RP52T5R We estimate that completing the survey will take you 15 minutes or less.
Thank you again for your support of the APA!
To further clarify the APA’s October 29, 2016, E-News regarding the D-grade results at the 2016 Nationals Tournament, the Board does not claim that Sandie Creek or its players intentionally or willfully violated the stated requirements, nor was its purpose to imply as such. The E-News listed at length the reasons that the Board and Tournament Committee had considered in determining that there had been a rule violation. This event has prompted the Board this month to make clarifying adjustments to the APA Standards of Play, Tournament Requirements and By-Laws to prevent future misinterpretation. The players and members of Sandie Creek have been and continue to be in good standing with the APA.
