Showing & Gaming / Jammies Jamboree Horse Show, July 6-8
« Last post by Admin on June 13, 2012, 12:34:27 PM »
Jammies Jamboree Horse Show
Tanana Valley Fair Grounds
Fri-Sun, July 6-8
This horse show will feature riders wearing pajamas during all events. We encourage our audience to do the same in support of the Breast Cancer Detection Center of Alaska (BCDC). 

There will be a Christian based “Sermon on Horseback”, potluck, silent and oral auctions for artwork and other items, pony rides, live music, food, and much more.
Entries appreciated by July 3rd so appropriate time can be allocated for each class.  Most classes $5. 

Sandy Davis is a local horsewoman with breast cancer.  She has used BCDC’s services and is currently receiving radiation treatment.  Our goal is to raise money to help Sandy and other women through the BCDC. 

The Breast Cancer Detection Center (BCDC) opened in 1976 to provide mammograms to Interior Alaskan women, regardless of ability to pay.  BCDC is a 501(c) (3) public charity whose mission is to increase awareness and boost survival rates with early detection.  They do this by delivering screening services and educational programs throughout the State of Alaska.  Mobile mammography was introduced in 1995.  In 2011, BCDC purchased a 33 foot Freightliner coach equipped with the latest digital full-field mammography technology.  This provides the same state-of-the-art mammography offered by BCDC at their clinic, throughout Fairbanks, the City of North Pole, along Alaska's roadways, and areas accessible through the state ferry and barge systems.

Avoid duplication & derailing
  • Search other threads to see if your topic is already covered.  Do not double post (post multiple similar messages on one thread) or cross post (place the same message across several board topics). 

    Reply to the appropriate post, not just the last post in the thread

    When replying, do not quote more from the previous post than you must. 

    Stay on topic.  Do not post new topics within someone else's thread and interrupt a discussion.
Be nice
  • No 'flaming' - no personal attacks, pettiness, sarcasm, abuse.  Respect other users.  If you disagree with someone, explain why.

    No 'trolling' - that is, posting in order to provoke an angry response.  That doesn't mean you can't be controversial.

    If it gets personal, take it offline.

    Don't keep harping about the same thing.

    If someone else's post offends you, don't fight online.  It can be easy to sound rude without so intending.  If you really are troubled by a post, don't respond - report it to a moderator.

    Be careful about humor.  Posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages. 

    Posts should not contain personal information or embarassing content.
Think, then type.
  • Use a meaningful title for a new thread or topic.

    Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts.

    Avoid "me too" type posts.  Only post when you have something to contribute.

    Be effective.  Write concisely, do not ramble, avoid abbreviations and slang.

Help for Moderators:
By default, SMF gives permission for all members to edit the posts that they have made, including deleting posts.  Moderators can also edit & delete posts.  Typically posts would be modified to correct typos or correct information, and posts would be deleted if they are spam, or have nothing substantial to add.
If a topic has been posted that does not relate well to the subject, it can be relocated to a (existing) more appropriate board or split off to a different topic.   Similarly, topics that are closely related to the same subject can be merged
