You rode hard all year. Now it's time to pick up your awards at the nicest annual Awards banquet in the State. CGA members come together to honor each individual rider and their achievements this past season. Ladies, if you want to wear those beautiful dresses and gowns to dinner, this is the night for glamour!! Hall of Fame recipients give their speeches throughout the night. Vote on board members, rules changes, etc., earlier in the day. This is also the time to meet other CGA folks, because CGA families will fill the hotel and huge auditorium!

You must submit your dinner reservations and payment in advance to State Office. This will ensure your stay for dinner, and that your awards are also at Convention waiting to go home with you. Be sure to make hotel reservations well in advance. CGA reserves a block of rooms at a reduced rate for CGA members. But when the block of rooms is gone, the price could change! If you do not pick up your awards at Convention, then you must make arrangements to have the award shipped to you.
