New Forest Showground
SOUTHERN TEAMS JOB LIST: SOUTHERN CHAMPS 2017 JOBS
We hope to have online scores if we can borrow a second wifi dongle:
Thank you for entering the Southern Champs this weekend x
Fingers crossed the weather stays dry – if not so hot!!!!!
We are trying to put together an information pack for you – the programmes can be downloaded from the website – see link below – please print as we will not be issuing them at the weekend.
We would ask that you drive to the far end of the showground and then enter via the gate on right – this way you can shut the gate easily behind you and you will not be at risk of leaving a gate open that may enable any animals to leave the show ground – unexpectedly! There are 3 gates into new park – then a cattle grid! – the gates MUST be closed at all times and sadly, in light of recent incidences, if the southern committee find any person leaving a gate open – even if it was already open when you got there – I sadly will ask you to leave the showground with immediate effect – I have personally lost a very loving and experienced games pony to a RTA – and there is truly nothing worse!
Included in your entry is a complimentary bale of New forest haylage that we will have ready for your arrival at the park! We hope your pony enjoys this, please remember if this heat continues, fresh water and salt/electrolyte supplements are a must for you ponies, and yourselves!
Please park sensibly – we have an area for 25 hook ups available which will be pre-booked – there are still a few available if you would like one – good option for a freezer I think!!!!!! – please email me or alan peck for info.
There will be an informal briefing on friday night at 10pm – and the marquee will be open for a “social” for us all x
The breathalyser will be in operation all weekend – and if it is felt that random testing is required – it will be used! – Any extreme behaviours will be dealt with promptly and severely – so please don’t put yourself or the committee in the position to have to!
There will be a shower facility free for all to use – please be respectful to others and leave in a clean state.
Saturday is a very full day for all – the South of England has invested heavily in purchasing two new full sets of equipment – and we ask that you respect this investment – it is for the benefit of the riders! – and we want you to have the very best we can offer x
The bouncy slide and assault course will be available for “sensible use” all weekend – and the “Its a knockout” will commence at 6pm – in age groups – from the very little to the very big!- entry is free and we hope it will bring with it a fun filled session! and prizes galore for those brave enough to take on their team mates – outside of the games ring!!!!!!!!!! please take all your names to the commentary box on Saturday for your entry – opens to ring 1, all other age groups ring 2.
Saturday afternoon will see the the arrival of the surf simulator – for all from 3pm until 7pm – to keep all our little and big ones entertained whilst enjoying our “beach” theme!!!!!
A riders meeting will be held 30 minutes after the last open session – on Saturday evening – in the marquee – where all riders are welcome to come and meet, discuss and hopefully raise any queries you all have about the association and our journey forward!
Our party theme for Saturday night is Ibiza Neon party – with our foam filled dance floor ! – = dress to impress or dress to drown!- the choice is yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The local mobile fish and chip van will be available from 8pm Saturday night = so hold on mum – you get a night off!!! and the lovely Helen will be available all weekend serving homemade food, drinks and cakes!
The very well respected sweet stall will be available to the children all weekend and we are always over whelmed that the children use this free facility without greed!! – thank you xx
If you have any queries between now and Friday please do not hesitate to contact me – I cannot switch teams or session times – so please don’t ask! – we are trying to give you the best value for money possible and we have worked hard over the last month to deliver this.
Safe trip everybody and see you all Friday.
The Southern Committee x
There will be random breathalyser tests and if anyone is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol they will be breathalysed
