Back to School Splurges that Are Worth the Price By Tavia Fuller Armstrong I like finding great bargains on school supplies. In fact, I recently wrote wanting bigger savings on school supplies and not being afraid to walk back out the door when a store does not offer up the great deals they advertise. So it might surprise you that I am more than willing to splurge on a few back to school items. I don’t mind paying more if the quality of the product is a lot better than what I might get otherwise. Here are a few examples of items I might splurge on. Electric pencil sharpener Because we homeschool, we go through a lot of pencils at home. Sharpening pencils with a handheld manual sharpener is time consuming, and many handheld sharpeners are not up to the task of sharpening dozens of pencils. Almost nothing is more frustrating than getting your pencil almost to the sharp point you desire and then having the lead break off in the sharpener. I wanted a wall-mounted mechanical pencil sharpener like the ones I grew up using in school.

You know, the kind with a variety of different sized openings and a handle you cranked to make the blades turn. But I couldn’t find one of those at the time, so a few years ago I bought a good electric pencil sharpener. I got the kind you plug in, not a battery powered model, and it has served me well. If I had to buy another, I would definitely splurge on a new pencil sharpener, because it saves me lots of time and frustration. Adjustable hole punch Last year, I saw hole punches advertised on sale for under $5. I checked them out in the store, and they were the most flimsy things I had ever seen. I had serious doubts that they would last even one year. Thankfully, my heavy duty adjustable hole punch is still going strong after several years, so I didn’t even have to consider buying a new one. We punch holes in close to 2,000 sheets of paper each year at home. That requires a good quality hole punch that is easy to use and long lasting. I strongly prefer an adjustable hole punch, because it gives us a lot of flexibility. Although we

most often use a standard three ring binder, I like being able to adjust the punches for different projects. Quality printer with built in scanner This is an item I am actually about to buy. Our family does a lot of printing, as I like to create my own worksheets to supplement my kids’ curriculum. We also do a considerable amount of scanning. If you are the parent of an elementary school kid, you know that you couldn’t possibly save every piece of artwork or handwritten story that

they create. Scanning can enable you to build a file of electronic copies, so that you are free to save only the best or most sentimental pieces. When purchasing a new printer, make sure to consider not only the initial price, but also the cost of ink cartridges. Also, as a good friend recommended to me, look for a printer that offers you the option of printing wirelessly. This can make things a lot easier than having to go plug into a USB cord every time you want to print a page.

By Sophie Walton It is school time again and if you are like me, you need all the help you can get keeping everyone where they need to be and doing what they should be doing. Keeping schedules straight, making sure homework is done, projects are completed and appointments are not missed is always difficult during the school year. It may be the most wonderful time of the year for parents; however, returning to school can also be the most stressing time. Keeping organized during the school year is now much easier with great iPhone and iPad apps. Many of them are free or cost very little so organization is not only easy it is cheap. Top five back-to-school apps to stay organized · CampusBooks - This free app will search the internet for you to return the lowest price on new, used, rental and digital textbooks. When every penny counts, saving money on schoolbooks is fantastic - - especially when it is this easy. · Cozi Family Organizer - This is a must-have iPhone and iPad app for mothers - - especially during the school year. This great free app includes a family calendar, shopping lists, to-do lists, family journals and

meal plans. The app allows you to keep every family member organized with one application. · Evernote - This is another free app that is great to keep you organized going back to school. I love this app because it allows me to search my notes (helpful when I cannot remember anything lately) and I can synchronize all of my notes, photos and voice memos with all of our family’s devices. My daughter loves this for taking notes! · myHomework - This is a great app for students and for parents. Keep up with homework assignments, projects, tests and class schedules. It is heaven-sent if you have more than one student and you are trying to keep them all organized. It is a free app but pay the $1.99 for web access so you get reminders!

· Clipboard - If you are the mother that always is tapped by the teachers to organize volunteers and plan events, this free app will be your best friend during the school year. You can easily sign up volunteers, send automatic reminders and track progress. One more app that all parents need for back-to-school time This app may not keep you organized but it will make your child rethink their belief that you know absolutely nothing. . . For parents like me who have forgotten the vast majority of US History, biology, algebra and most other school subjects, School A to Z is indispensable. This free app is like having a tutor in your pocket. It is a great tool for helping students with their homework.

Social Security Statements Now Available Online

Social Security contracts with credit bureau Experian to design these questions based on their records about your credit history. Once your identity has been verified, you can create a password-protected account. Social Security emphasizes that you may sign into or create an account to access only your own information.

or visit your local office. You’ll need copies of your W-2 form or tax return for any impacted years. Another valuable piece of information found in your statement is an estimate of what your retirement benefit will be at age 62, at full retirement age and at age 70. Use those numbers to start estimating your retirement needs. These online calculators can help: The Retirement Estimator at www.ssa.gov/estimator automatically enters your earnings information to estimate your projected Social Security benefits under different scenarios, such as age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc. You can also download a more detailed calculator to make more precise estimates. AARP has a retirement calculator at www.aarp.org that helps determine your current financial status and what you’ll need to save to meet your retirement needs. Bottom line: Understand what Social Security benefits will be available to you and how much more you’ll need to save in order to have a comfortable retirement.

SUPERSTAR PIANIST lang lang returns to Pacific symphony Classical music superstar Lang Lang returns to Pacific Symphony for a onenight-only special event, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Recently honored with carrying the Olympic Torch for the 2012 Summer Games and performing for Queen Elizabeth II at the Diamond Jubilee, the 30-year-old Chinese piano virtuoso has been for some time garnering attention the world over, playing sold-old recitals and concerts in every major city. Heralded as the “hottest artist on the classical music planet,” by The New York Times, Lang Lang joins the Symphony for not one, but two of the most demanding piano concertos in the repertoire: Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, the “Emperor.” Tickets range from $35-$145; for more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit PacificSymphony.org. “Lang Lang is in unbelievable demand as soloist,” says Maestro St.Clair. “There isn’t an orchestra in the world who wouldn’t want to have him on their series this season, or any season. We are indeed honored that he has chosen to return to Orange County and Pacific Symphony to perform two major concertos. It will be an honor for me to have the chance to work with him again. We are truly blessed!” With lightning speed, drama and technical brilliance, Lang Lang embodies the same “rock-star” appeal as Liszt did in the powerful, fleet parallel octaves of his Piano Concerto No. 1—passages that have become a touchstone of keyboard virtuosity. In 2011, Lang Lang recorded this romantic showpiece on the CD “Liszt, My Piano Hero” and DVD “Liszt, Now!” to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the composer. For the concert’s finale, the classical icon performs Beethoven’s grand and heroic “Emperor” Concerto, which opens with the quality of a royal fanfare and propelling cadenza-like flourishes from the star soloist. The orchestra kicks off the evening with Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Capriccio Espagnol,” a glittering display of orchestral colors based on Spanish themes. “Lang Lang embodies music,” continues St.Clair. “He understands the power of music and how it can elevate our lives. Through his electrifying, probing performances we are all transformed and enriched. Both Franz Liszt and Beethoven were piano virtuosos of their day. What better way to experience these concertos than by our modern day virtuoso, Lang Lang?” Four years ago, over four billion people viewed Lang Lang’s performance at the opening ceremony for the Summer

Olympics in Beijing, where he was seen as a symbol of the youth and future of China. This status has inspired over 40 million Chinese children to learn to play classical piano—a phenomenon coined by “The Today Show” as “the Lang Lang effect.” Recognizing his powerful cultural influence, in 2008 The Recording Academy named him their cultural ambassador to China. Most recently, Lang Lang was chosen as an official worldwide ambassador to the 2010 Shanghai Expo, where he performed at the opening ceremony. “One of the things that make Lang Lang so special is his burning desire to share his music making with children and people of all ages,” says St.Clair. “He is fully aware of the role this can play in helping shape their hearts, minds and spirits.” A strong advocate for music education, Lang Lang was featured in the 2009 Time 100—Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. For nearly a decade the pianist has been giving back to children through volunteer activities as diverse as mentoring young talented pianists, convening piano students in concert, performing for sick children in hospitals, delivering music recitals in underserved

and remote communities and donating his musical talents to raise awareness of charitable causes. His efforts led to the recent launch of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation with the mission of inspiring the next generation of classical music lovers and performers by cultivating tomorrow’s top pianists, championing music education at the forefront of technology and building a young audience through live music experiences. Lang Lang is the featured soloist on the Golden Globe-winning score “The Painted Veil” composed by Alexandre Desplat and can be heard on the soundtrack of “The Banquet” composed by Tan Dun. Most recently, he is the featured soloist on the movie “My Week with Marilyn.” All of his albums have entered the top classical charts as well as many pop charts around the globe. In 2007, he was nominated for a Grammy Award, becoming the first Chinese artist to be nominated for Best Instrumental Soloist. He was honored by The Recording Academy with the 2007 Presidential Merit Award; past recipients have included Zubin Mehta and Luciano Pavarotti. In 2011, the Lang Lang Music World was launched, which is a multi-function-

ing arts complex located in Shenzhen and Chongqing, China. In 2004, he was appointed International Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). He also serves as chairman of the Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award Project, on the Weill Music Institute Advisory Committee as part of Carnegie Hall’s educational program and is the youngest member of Carnegie Hall’s artistic advisory board. In May 2011, Lang Lang received an honorary doctorate of music from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales at the Royal College of Music, and received his second honorary doctorate degree in musical arts at the Manhattan School of Music in May 2012. Lang Lang began playing piano at the age of 3, his break into stardom came at age 17, when he was called upon for a dramatic last-minute substitution at the “Gala of the Century,” playing a Tchaikovsky concerto with the Chicago Symphony. Following this gigantic debut, he performed successful concerts around the world. The Times in London remarked: “Lang Lang took a sold-out Albert Hall by storm… This could well be history in the making.”

20th Anniversary of Zoofari Raises Nearly $80,000

FOSAZ President Debbie Friedman with Advisory Board Member Donel Wiles and FOSAZ Executive Director Cathi Decker

The 20th annual Zoofari fundraising black-tie gala hosted by The Friends of Santa Ana Zoo, a non-profit organization was again, a complete success with over 350 guests attending the 1920’s theme party entitled “A Cat’s Meow.” Zoofari takes place at one of the most inspiring venues in Orange County, The Santa Ana Zoo. With the 1920’s theme, ladies arrived in flapper attire or their best animal print cocktail dress while the men donned gangster suits or the traditional tux and safari wear. Cocktails were provided with one special drink appropriately named, “Roarin’ Rickey’s Fizz” reminiscent of the Bathtub Gin tastings from the 1920’s (and they had a real bathtub filled!). Attendees also enjoyed inspired decorations by R.W.B. Party Rentals, a large silent auction as well as special visits with the animals. Free valet parking was sponsored by Villa Ford along with a hosted bar by FOSAZ, appetizers and then a delicious gourmet dinner prepared by Parties by Panache. An extraordinary live auction and dancing to the lively tunes of the “Soundbytes” followed. Co-chairs and emcees for the evening were OC Register columnists Frank Mickadeit and Barbara Venezia with Glen Fladeboe as auctioneer. FOSAZ President Debbie Friedman and Executive Director Cathi Decker helped present special honors to Mark and Shio Hui Harrison; Lucille and Mike Harrison; David Exline and Amos Bracero. They were instrumental in bringing the Pavement of Progress Stan Tkaczyk with Frank Mickadeit and Barbara Venezia team together by meeting with designers, contractors and architects. This project resulted in the pathways and service roads at the Santa Ana Zoo to be eco-friendly and also provide improved accessibility for disabled guests and guests requiring mobile assistance. A special “reveal” of the Ocelot location where the exhibit “Wild Cats of El Bosque Verde” (Wild Cats of the Green Forest) will be housed was unveiled; this was the first time the public was able to see the exhibit location before it is built. Retired Zoo Director Ron Glazier gave the approximately thirty five special guests, VIP’s and press who were in attendance a behind the scenes look at the exhibit and described the area showing the detailed artist renderings while they sipped on champagne. The event netted about $80,000 this year adding to a total of almost half a million dollars to bring a pair of Brazilian Ocelots to the Zoo. Ocelots are beautiful exotic wild cats from South America, often described as miniature cheetahs. There are currently only 26 Brazilian Ocelots in the United States. Food for the evening was appropriately named for the 1920’s theme, starting Alex Wilson with Honorees Lucille and Mike Harrison and Mark and Shio Hui with “Flappers and Flyboys” hors d’oeuvres and names such as “Sitting Pretty” Harrison Summer Fruit Salad, “Bee’s Knees” Petite Filet Mignon, “Putting on the Ritz” St. Peter’s Fish, and “Don’t Know From Nothing” Grilled Vegetable Napoleons - guests were delighted with the fun. The LIVE Auction proved to be a bidding war as many amazing items were up for grabs. Items such as an Apple 64GB, iPad3 donated by Board Member Howard Hall where Debra Schweickert from Newport Beach took it home for $1000; board member Monica Kim from Anaheim Hills grabbed the dinner for eight by Chef Chet Harrison for $1,700; a three night adventure to the Arizona Biltmore with a $300 Visa gas card and 4 tickets to the Phoenix Zoo, the Desert Botanical Garden and the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium went to another board member Jane Olin from Penny Fox and Jeff Jackson Irvine for $1500; the Gucci handbag that was stuffed with 100 California Scratchers, Jackie and John Melbon a mystery amount of cash and other items went to Advisory board member Tom we are able to bring the Brazilian Ocelots to the Santa Ana Zoo. It’s like a dream Newmeyer from Newport Beach for $3,000; Robert McGraw from Laguna Beach come true especially to the community and donors who support the zoo”, said Cathi was the lucky winner of the eight days and seven nights at the Cabo Azul Resort & Decker, Executive Director of FOSAZ. Spa with airfare on Alaska Airlines, he paid $3,000; and an up close and personal Zoofari is sponsored by FOSAZ, a non-profit organization which has helped supvisit with the Santa Ana Zoo’s Margay cat, Buttons for six were fiercely bid on by port and improve the Zoo for over 31 years. The Santa Ana Zoo is Orange County’s many. So many in fact that it sold four times at $500 each! The final Live Auction only AZA accredited Zoo and is recognized as signifying excellence and commitment item was a straight donation where all were encouraged to raise their “boarding to animal care and conservation. The Santa Ana Zoo provides a place to have fun, pass” to help with the airline expenses to bring the Ocelots to the Santa Ana Zoo. to learn, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. For more information, please Money raised will help to fund the travel costs as well as the initial medical expenses visit www.santaanazoo.org. of the two Ocelots. FOSAZ was hoping on raising $11,000 and by the end of the evening, they did. “We’re so excited because of the funds generated by Zoofari, Photos by Ann Chatillon Page 10

COACH of the month Athlete’s Choice is pleased to announce our Coach of the Month, Bob Jones Athletes Choice Coach of the week Bob Jones Bob Jones is in his fourth year in the role of head coach in the Santa Margarita Pop Warner league, this year leading the Titans in the Mitey Mite division, with 21 nine year old boys, 8 assistant coaches, and countless family volunteers. Coach Jones grew up playing year-round sports in the suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, with respect for all of his youth team coaches who prepared him for excelling in high school both academically and athletically. After high school, Coach Jones went on to play college football at Moorhead State University where he was named the small college 1st Team All-American quarterback as a senior. After college, coach Jones went on to play four years of football in the Football League of Europe, During each off season Jones began coaching college and high school football and basketball and developed a deep respect for coaching. Coach Jones and his wife Kinzie and 4 children moved to Rancho Santa Margarita in the summer of 2008. Later that fall, Bob’s son Ty asked about playing football so he registered Ty in Santa Margarita pop Warner and volunteered his time to coach a team. Coach Jones has said it was a true blessing falling into such a great community and the organization of Santa Margarita pop Warner with inspired kids, and supportive families. Coach Jones’ team goal is first of all to focus on fun, teaching life lessons, and building sportsmanship and character. Bob Jones says “ Years from now the kids and parents won’t remember the scores or even the wins and losses, but they will remember the life lessons and the friendships with teammates and coaches, so I try to create an environment in which these can flourish.”

Fuel for School School day mornings are typically busy mornings. Getting the kids out of bed is one thing, but managing to whip up breakfast, pack lunches and get everyone out the door on time requires planning and preparation. As the morning rushes by, there’s little time to pack a unique lunch or make snacks for everyone, including mom. In fact, according to a national survey commissioned by DOLE® and conducted by Wakefield Research, 73 percent of moms say they have eaten their child’s snack in a pinch. To help save time and energy each day, check out these simple lunchpacking tips to revamp your morning routine and help create a smooth and stress-free school year. Camouflage healthy snacks. While you may want to pack everyone a healthy snack, the kids aren’t always excited to find an apple in their lunchbox. Try a wholesome snack they won’t want to trade. DOLE Real Fruit Bites are made from real dried fruit, coated with yogurt and sprinkled with toasted whole grain oats. A singleserving pouch has 80 to 90 calories, no trans fat and are a good source of vitamin C. You can also find sneaky snack recipes online for treats baked up with healthy ingredients, like snack bars made with nuts Page 14

and seeds, or brownies with pureed veggies in the mix. The kids will never know it’s good for them. Leverage last night’s leftovers. Don’t stick to the same old sandwich, juice box and snack regimen. Try adding instant rice to leftover chicken, transforming leftover steak into a hearty chili, or boiling some pasta to add to leftover hamburger meat. These simple tricks to repurposing yesterday’s meal will save the family time and money this school year. Share a smile. Lunch doesn’t have to be elaborate every day. But there are plenty of fun, creative ways to make a simple lunch exciting, especially for the kids. For instance, cut sandwiches into different shapes with cookie cutters (you can find animal shapes and even puzzle-shaped

The Newport News

cookie cutters online). Make the kids smile with a simple note or googly eyes on their sandwich wrapper. Try putting contact paper inside the lid for games or dry-erase notes that the kids can leave for you, too. Keep it cool. There are plenty of ways to preserve your lunch so it’s still tasty in the afternoon. Think outside the thermos and try freezing a yogurt cup or a juice box to keep lunches cold throughout the day. Snack attack. With an on-the-go

lifestyle, it’s important to keep snacks on hand should hunger strike. In fact, according to the DOLE survey, 77 percent of women say they can’t get through a normal day without a snack. After you pack up the family’s lunches in the morning, be sure to grab some healthy snacks for your desk drawer or your purse so you can have a quick bite when necessary. The kids always need a pick-me-up after their school sports and activities, so make sure to have some fun snacks in the car.

Orange County audiences are in for a real treat with Festival Ballet Theatre’s production of The Secret Garden!  Artistic Director, Salwa Rizkalla, commissioned Josie Walsh, a former professional dancer with the Joffrey Ballet, to choreograph this masterpiece of imagery and drama.  A restoration of a garden and revival of the spirit, Secret Garden is

a story of loss, dreams, hope and transformation. Inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic novel, Secret Garden is brought to life through a riveting fusion of cutting edge choreography by Josie Walsh, an original cinematic score by Paul Rivera Jr. and a stunning multi-media scenic design by David Bazemore.  Also on the program is a modern

dance specifically created for Festival Ballet. Jeroen Verbruggen, of Les Ballet de Monte Carlo, Sax Tet, and Petipa’s “Dance of the Animated Frescoes” from The Little Humpbacked Horse.  Festival Ballet Theatre simultaneously attracts the best in professional dance to its home base while sending its own dancers out as artistic ambas-

THE FESTIVAL OF ARTS – CALIFORNIA’S PREMIER FINE ART SHOW CELEBRATES ITS 80TH SEASON The Festival of Arts wraps up the celebration of its 80th Anniversary with two special exhibits now running through September 5. Located at the Festival’s satellite gallery foaSOUTH and the Wells Fargo building in downtown Laguna Beach, a variety of artwork and memorabilia was selected to highlight the art show’s rich history and heritage in the community. Featured items in the exhibits are pieces of art from the Festival of Arts permanent collection as well as historical images, posters, and program covers from the Festival’s 80-year history. The centerpiece of the foaSOUTH exhibit is a bronze statue titled “Baby Seal” by Terry Thornsley, a long time Festival artist currently exhibiting in the 2012 show. The statue, a favorite of Festival visitors, was relocated for restoration and will return to the grounds in Spring 2013. “Wrapping up the Festival’s 80th Anniversary this summer, these exhibits are a great trip down memory lane,” says exhibit curator Pat Sparkuhl. “It’s a great reminder of the Festival’s humble beginnings in 1932 and it’s journey over the last 80 years.” Opened as a collaboration between Festival of the Arts and Active Culture, foaSOUTH serves visitors and residents of Laguna Beach by promoting Festival-related exhibitions throughout the year. Located at 1006 S. Coast Highway on the corner of Anita and PCH, the gallery has partnered with Active Culture to provide frozen yogurt and natural foods on the premises at their café. Open from 7:00am – 10:00 pm. Admission is free. The exhibit is on the third floor of the Wells Fargo building at 260 Ocean Avenue, Laguna Beach.  It is part of an ongoing series of shows that the Festival of Arts will be holding at Wells Fargo. The building is open to the public Monday through Friday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Admission is free. The Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters are sponsored in part by Acura, Cox Communications, Fidelity Investments, KOST Radio 103.5, the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, and The Orange County Register. The Festival of Arts is a non-profit organization that produces The Festival of Arts – California’s Premier Fine Art Show and the Pageant of the Masters. For general information, call (949) 494-1145 or visit the website at www.LagunaFestivalofArts.org. The event is located at 650 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, California.

Patricio Pasquel and Serge are Perfect in the   $40,000 Showpark Summer Classic Grand Prix

The exhilarating jump-off of the $40,000 Showpark Summer Classic Grand Prix will be talked about for the rest of the season as top West Coast riders put up their best performances attempting to top the leaderboard and walk away victorious. Of the thirtyfour horse and rider duos, eleven qualified for the jump-off and spectators and competitors were on their feet watching each and every round. Speed and accuracy played a huge role as the level of intensity grew throughout the competition. German course designer Olaf Petersen Jr. designed a track that ultimately challenged the up and coming young horses, but in turn, tested the veterans. A wide triple bar, a verticaloxer-vertical combination and skinny vertical collected the most faults in the qualification round. Of the eleven fault-free rounds, crowd favorite Hap Hansen had their full attention as he guided Archie Bunker through the course, posting a flawless round in 85.596 seconds, yet again in pursuit of that number 100 Grand Prix win. Of the nine nations representing today’s field, six returned with another chance to post a clean round. “I’m happy with the amount of returners,” Petersen commented on the jump-off Page 18

field, “I didn’t want to make it too difficult, but next week is a World Cup Qualifier so there are still riders and horses preparing for that.” The crowd was yet again on their feet as Hansen returned to the ring. Kicking off the jump-off track with a new oxer, Hansen guided Archie Bunker through a risky but clean round, posting the time to beat of 44.702 seconds. Brazilian rider Josephina Nor-Lantzman galloped into the ring aboard Chello Z ready to post her infamous swift and clear round. Blazing through the course, Nor-Lantzman looked well on her way to surpass Hansen’s time, but with the final charge to the last obstacle, Chello Z had an unfortunate chip on the back rail to finish with a four fault time of 42.554 seconds. It wasn’t until Mexican rider Patricio Pasquel entered the ring aboard Serge, that Hap Hansen’s clear round would be challenged. Pasquel flew through the track, dodging between fences, turning on a dime, charging to the final oxer to trip the wire in 43.796 seconds, good enough to top the leaderboard, shifting Hansen to second. Half way through the jumpoff, Ashlee Bond returned with Wistful to try and better Pasquel’s time. The small but mighty Wistful was able to

The Newport News

keep all the rails in the cups, but with a time of 45.116 seconds, would have to settle for third place. Nearing the end of the jump-off, New Zealand rider Guy Thomas took the field with a mission. From the first obstacle, Thomas was flying through the course and looked to be on his way to posting a winning round. Coming home, Thomas spun Peterbilt around a rollback to a vertical but due to an unfortunate misstep, knocked a rail, resulting in the fastest four fault time of 42.432 seconds. The final round of the day was posted by Paige Dotson and Rockford I. Dotson calmly entered the ring looking over the track to finalize her plan of attack. Dotson was ahead of the leading pace throughout her round, however as Dotson approached the final oxer, she collected Rockford I to guarantee a fault free effort, finishing in 45.345 seconds, good enough for fourth respectively. “I am so happy,” Pasquel (MEX) shared with a smile from ear to ear. “Olaf’s course was perfect for Serge

because he doesn’t have the best scope but he is very fast. It could not have gone any better.” Pasquel (MEX) will return for next week’s $50,000 Showpark World Cup Grand Prix with hopes of posting the same result aboard his fearless 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood. The first World Cup Qualifier in California will be held next week during the Showpark All Seasons Summer Classic, August 29-September 2. The $50,000 Showpark World Cup Grand Prix, presented by EQU Lifestyle Magazine, will showcase some of the top West Coast Show Jumpers with hopes of accruing valuable World Cup points as well as HITS Million Grand Prix Qualifying prize money.
