If you’re a dedicated driver who participates in a variety of driving activities you should consider joining the Dairyland Driving Club’s Star Member Program. Plan to Star this year and in years to come.
Purpose of the program
To give those members who invest time and energy into the sport of driving positive recognition as a member of DDC. This would also allow new and inexperienced members to identify those experienced members for networking.
How the program works
If you decide to join the program you need to keep track of your horse driving activities. There is a Star Program Log Sheet to use that will also help you understand the activities that qualify for the program.
Each year when you renew your DDC membership, indicate on the membership form if you qualified as a Star Member for the previous year. The membership list on the web site will have a Star [*] by your name.
Facebook and Coachman
Members are encouraged to report their progress during the season on the DDC Facebook site or provide notes and pictures to the newsletter editor.
Star Prize at Annual Meeting
There are special prizes and recognition of all Stars for the year at the DDC Annual Meeting.
