This is the only event the EDHA has. The slate of classes are voted on and its a majority vote to continue with the youth class. The board of directors "which i am on" then places tge classes in an order we best see fit for the weekend. And we have heard the scuttle from a handful of poeple about not liking the youth class. So this year it has been placed in a time slot that will not affect the start time of the class set for sunday. So i am puzzled as to why people would miss three days of championship pulling over a early sunday morning class?

I can't see why everyone is so upset over the "kids" class at the Roundup. These kids work hard helping to exercise and all the other things to get ready to pull, why shouldn't they be able to have their little bit of glory too. I can't believe, as Slim says, why you would miss all the other classes because of this one early morning class. My grandchildren have pulled in this class and they loved it.

U can't see me!

I'm can't believe people are going to cry over "kids" wanting to be apart of horse pulling.. if kids don't start getting involved tjen where will the sport go?? Seems kinda strange to not want kids to keep the sport going!!!!! But sounds to me the kids are more mature then the adults!!!!!

just sayin

It has been my observation that neither the kids class or the mini class is nearly as popular with the spectators as the horse classes are. I would guess there are 750-1000 spectators in that building during the horse classes. Maybe a third of that during the kids classes. Last year at the conclusion of a horse class in the building I walked outside where the minis were pulling and there may have been 50 people watching. Having said all that why doesn't the club send out a questionnaire to seek members thoughts about the subject with their next mailing? I know they say that the membership has a chance to express their opinion at the meetings but those of us who attend the meetings know that there isn't more then 10% at most of the membership in attendance.

I think we need to be careful here. I agree with Bill that the original question in the post has not been answered however I disagree with his comment about the "attacks". No one knows better then I that there have been a few attacks here on the boards in the past but in this case I don't perceive expressing your opinion against including the kids or mini classes at the round-up as attacks. I see that as just an opinion. For those of you who don't care for the kids class or minis you should do as I will do. Slim suggested I sleep in on Sunday morning and that is just what I'm going to do. For those of you who are interested in the kids class I hope you enjoy.
