New Zealand: Update for Nationals

March 26 2010

Important last minute update for all.

All things are sorted and being bought together for a brilliant NZ Championship.

Traveling competitors will be pleased to know we have secured the use of the Balmoral Pony Club Grounds at Culverden for off base accommodation for horses and people. Minimum facilities (toilets showers) are supplied with room to yard your horses. (Yarding standards to be observed). Please contact David Marshall to make arrangements (small cost will apply). 03 3243 727, 027 446 5593 or email info@hollyfarmnz.com

Bookings for Prize giving dinner will be available until Friday. Please do not miss out to relax and enjoy prize giving/auction and dinner. Great chance to enjoy catching up after the business of the weekend.

With a huge concerted effort, prizes have been secured to a substantial value (think it has past $20,000). This equates to around a third of our budget.

On Sunday evening an Auction has been organized to sell some specific items. If you wish to donate items for fun or pleasure please contact David. At this time we have a household pump and pressure system and a submersible pump from Norlings, a stallion service from Holly Farm Equestrian Services and other items. This is just a start! off site bids will be accepted, contact Ken McGrath (ken.mcgrath@harcourts.co.nz) or David Marshall (as above).

When you arrive at base: please adhere to site allocations. We have set out sites according to entries and if everyone remains considerate we have room for everyone. Layout and basic principles will be posted on arrival.

We are very happy to do everything we can to make your Championship as successful and enjoyable as we can. Any questions please ask. In the meantime, travel safe and looking forward to huge fun weekend.

Kind regards,

From the Culverden 2010 NZ National Endurance and Trail Riders Championship
