Items to remember:

Please NO dogs on the cross course

Lunches provided, please let us know of any dietary restrictions or allergies. 

As necessary, we assign multiple judges to each fence, this is due to multiple jumps, location of jump, experience of judges, etc.  Please don't ask to move to a different jump or to have others assigned with you to move.  There is a method to our madness!

The organizers ask that you please leave your furry friends at home. 

Please bring a chair, suitable clothing and a stop watch or a watch with a second hand.

Don't forget this time of year it maybe a little brisk or damp out, please be prepared to weather changes.

The event will go rain or shine, in the past years we have had everything from rain to hail!  Vehicles are allowed on course (four wheel drive recommended).
