Show Catalogue - 1 December
Here is the catalogue for our show this Sunday:
If you want a
printed copy please let me know because I will only have limited copies
available at the show at a cost of $2. Also if there is anything in it that
needs correcting let me know asap so I can get it changed.
Note that we've decided to offer warmups for each pony category & Open
horses at 90cm. Cat A warmups will now commence at 8am with classes
starting at 8.30am. Cat B & C will be allowed 20 minutes for their warmups
so please use the catalogue attached to estimate the time your warmups will
start, and ensure your name is on the blackboard before they start. $2 per
round at the gate please.
Low Hunter Warmups will start at 7.45am until 8.15am with classes starting
at 8.30am - Open horses wanting to warmup at a lower height are also
welcome. We will have another set of warmups for 1/2 an hour after the Low
Hunter is complete set at 90cm. You will need your name on the blackboard
to ensure you get a turn. $2 per round at the gate please.
Back numbers - you will find your back number listed in the catalogue. If
you have an ID number holder from previous years you are welcome to use
this, otherwise we will have numbers that pin to your jacket available at
Helpers - if you did your entry online you will have noticed our plea for
helpers. We really are a very small committee and really need help to
ensure our shows can continue being held. Thanks to the couple of people who
did offer to help - you are stars and we really appreciate it.
If anyone sees a rail come down in the ring it would be great if you could
put it up again - that really helps in a big way. When the jumps need
lifting or changing between rounds it really helps to have more than one or
two people doing it, it also speeds up the day. Also sometimes we don't
have enough people on the ground to relieve our wonderful gatekeepers -
often they can't even get away to go to the toilet. Asking if someone needs
a break and holding the fort while they do goes along way to making people
who do the work enjoy the day too.
If anyone is around on Saturday afternoon at about 2pm onwards we will be
building the two courses - any help would greatly be appreciated.
I think we are covered for help in the office at this show, but I am
desperate for some help at our January show, it doesn't need to be computer
work Let me know if you can give me a hand even for a few hours. Also if
anyone is interested in some part time paid work over Feb/Mar/April and is
keen to learn how to use the Main Events software please see me for
Looking forward to seeing you..

New Online Entries for our next show on 15 September 2013
Exciting news – we are trialling online entries for our for the last of our winter series shows on 15 September. No more posting entries, or scanning and uploading entry forms. Online entries are the way of the future and we’d really like you to give it a go for this show. All you have to do is go to Main-events.com and look for our show date.
Click here to view the online entry page now.
- To enter online you will need to login, so if you haven’t done it before you will need to register first.
- Online entries for the show are open now which will give you plenty of time to have a go. Online entries will close Friday 13th September so that we have time to upload the data.
- If you have multiple horses/riders put your entries all through the one login, just keep adding horses/riders as required.
- If, after you’ve done your entries things go wrong and you need to change or cancel your entries all you need to do is email the secretary and she will sort it out for you.
We will continue to take entries on the day as usual or course, but we would really like to encourage you to enter online – this is our chance to practice prior to the bigger summer shows and the aim is to cut down the secretary’s workload and cut down your time waiting in the queue to get your entries completed on show day. You will be able to see class lists online as online entries come in and full lists once the secretary uploads the manual entries.
We are also looking for anyone that may be interested in learning to use the software we use at our shows for entries and results. It’s not hard to learn, all you need is to be competent using a computer and some free time during show days to help out in the office. This will enable our long serving volunteers to have a break during the day and make things easier during the busiest times. We really need some more people trained in this area in case of emergencies – who knows – you might even enjoy it!!
Please don’t hesitate to email Louise if you have any problems with your online entries, or if you are at all interested in helping in the office on the computer.
