FoCM's May 2nd meeting had a visit from Shawn Mott and Susan Pennell of Chaparral Ranch who will be operating the Corral concession at Camp Mather this summer.
Shawn said that they plan to bring about 30 horses and ponies (yea ponies!) up to Camp with an anticipated crew of about seven.
A big welcome to the Chaparral Ranch folks, and we look forward to meeting them all up and around Camp.
