>Special cut scenes review!
Don't miss this unique chance to attend an exclusive showing of the "cut scenes" from the classic Battlestar Galactica DVD set! Representatives of Universal will be showing these scenes, some of which have never before been seen, at a special DVD panel. There will also be door prizes and a raffle for attendees, with a chance to win the complete boxed DVD edition of the original show!

>Donate Your BSG Memorabilia for Charity!
We will be sponsoring a charity auction to benefit the Ride On therapeutic riding center--an excellent program for assisting children and adults with disabilities. "Ride On teaches horseback riding to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. Founded in 1994, Ride On is a 501 (C)(3) not-for-profit corporation serving 135 riders each week at two ranches.

Our staff includes six nationally certified riding instructors and two physical therapists and we are a NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped Association) Premier accredited center. Serving the Conejo Valley, our Newbury Park site is located on a 13 acre ranch operated in partnership with the Conejo Recreation and Park District In the San Fernando Valley, Chatsworth is home to our original site.

Ride On offers two programs: Hippotherapy, which emphasizes therapy and always involves a licensed physical, speech or occupational therapist and Therapeutic Riding which emphasizes recreation, riding skills and fun on horseback. We also offer able-bodied lessons for siblings and the general public. Ride On offers the only accredited Hippotherapy Program in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. If you would like to learn more about Ride On please e-mail your name and address and we will send you our quarterly newsletter. sara@rideon.org View their website at http://www.rideon.org/

A minimum of 50% of all proceeds will go directly to the Ride On organization.
