Horse 360 and Dog 360
Help us promote the Horse 360 and Dog 360 apps! Colorado 4-H will receive a portion of the worldwide sales of these two apps that are downloaded in June and July. Please share this information with 4-H and non-4-H clientele in your county.
Some information about the download of these apps:
The easiest way to direct people to the download site is with the following link to the Horse 360 website at: www.horse360.com.au. There is an easy download button as well as videos and more information about the apps.
- You can also download these apps from iTunes or the App Store.
- These apps are only available for Apple products (iPad and iPhone).
- You must have an iTunes account to download them.
- The Horse 360 app is offered as a $1.99 download (only a partial download) or as a bundle for $9.99. There are 6 partial downloads of different categories so you save $2.00 by downloading the bundle.
- The Dog 360 is sold in the four different downloads for $1.99 each or download the bundle for $6.99.
- You also need to be aware that there is another app out there called “Dogs 360” (plural) that is not in any way part of this effort. Please be sure the app you download is Dog 360 (singular).
Also, feel free to share the flyer on social media or any other way you can get the word out there. If you have any questions, please call 970.491.1152.
Remember – the deadline for Colorado 4-H to benefit from the downloads of these two applications is July 31!

Camp Tobin Registration Now Available
County Staff with 4hOnline responsibilities, it is important that you read this message in its entirety.
Online registration for 2012 Camp Tobin is now available through 4hOnline. In the past, families have been able to register themselves for the event using our old registration system, and it’s likely that they will be expecting to register themselves again this year. Attached to this email are instructions that families can use to learn how to log into 4hOnline and register for Camp Tobin.
How to Open Up Registration for Families:
In order for families to register for Camp Tobin as they have done in the past, you will need to make sure that you have opened up 4hOnline to allow families to log in and register for events. As illustrated in the screenshot below, please log into your county’s 4hOnline account, navigate to the Enrollment tab and then select the Options button. Under the section called “For Families”, look for the second checkbox labeled, “Do Not Allow Existing Families to Edit Their Record”, and make sure that this box is NOT checked.
Be sure to save your changes by clicking on the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.
If you choose to not allow members to register themselves for Camp Tobin, you may wish to contact your members and let them know that they will need to register through your county office. We will be posting a link on our homepage and on the State Fair Packet page that will allow members to access the 4hOnline login page as well as a note to contact their county office if they do not know how to log into the system.
IMPORTANT: Regarding Financial Transfers – Connie will be creating all of the Financial Transfers for this event. Financial Transfers will be created for each family that is attending, so if your county has multiple families who will be attending, then multiple Financial Transfers will be created under your county account.
Note: Please be aware that if you are registering members at the county level, in addition to Camp Tobin registration, you will also see that Teen Clerks registration is listed as an option – the State Office will be registering Teen Clerks this year, so please ignore this option if you see it.

2012 Shooting Sports Events Registration is now available through 4hOnline!
Please note that the absolute deadline for registering members into the state shoot is August 1st at 11:59PM.
Below is the direct link to the Registration portal page. Please take a moment and review the material on this page BEFORE entering your county contestants! http://www.co4hshooting.org/ss_contest/2012-contest-packet.html
Other contest resources may be found here: http://www.co4hshooting.org/ss_contest/index.html
One major change this year is that a county may only send 5 individuals in the shotgun classes. (Other classes allow 6 entries).
For those counties who will be registering youth for the event, proceed as normal with registration through 4hOnline.
County leaders (coaches) who have been authorized by their County Extension Staff will have the special credentials necessary to use the 4hOnline Event Registration system; these individuals will be emailed individually by Kim Morrison with the correct login credentials. Your leaders will not be able to use the new system without these credentials!
As usual, once all members in your county who will be competing in the Shooting Sports Events have been registered, and once you are ready to make your payment, please complete the process of (1) creating a financial transfer, (2) adding invoices to the transfer, (3) adding a payment with check number, (4) submitting the payment through 4hOnline, and (5) printing/mailing a hard copy of your financial transfer along with your check. A tutorial on how to complete this process may be found here: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/ye/events/PaymentAndInvoiceInstructions.pdf Please see the bottom of the Contest Packet page to learn more about where to mail your check to.
Please let me know if you have any questions. – Darrin Goodman
