Australia: 2011 Tom Quilty Gold Cup Update

March 15 2011

South Australia, Barossa Ranges, 30 September to 1 October.

The SA Quilty is definitely on and with only 6 months to go the Committee is flat out. We have a number of members that were on the 2004 Quilty committee and their experience has been invaluable. We may be a small state but we are going to put on a Big Event! Thankyou to all the interstate people who have offered advice and manpower for the Event. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Ride Base
The Mt Pleasant Showgrounds (Talunga Park) is a flat grassed area. Sites will be 15m by 10m. Cost is $50 and you must purchase 1 site per horse. You may need more if you have a big gooseneck. Powered sites are an extra $30 (limited number) Water from mains taps is plentiful.

Preferably none, but if you must bring one, it must be on a leash at all times. Loose dogs will be reported to the Council Dog Catcher.

Only one ‘away from home’ checkpoint at the end of Leg 1.

Forms will be on the website before the end of March, Please download and send completed form to our treasurer with a chq or money order payable to SAQuilty Committee Inc. Entries are $360 per horse.

Pictures will be on the website before end of March with order forms and sizing chart. There will be 2 order dates and a stall at the event.

Final Dinner
On Sunday night there will be a sit down 2 course dinner with Band and Bar. Tickets are $40 and can be prepaid. It will be held in the Town Hall about 600m from the Ride Base.
That’s all for now, Please keep an eye on the Website which is being updated frequently. Feel free to email any of the committee for more info or ring Jean Sims on 0429781004 at any time. We look forward to seeing a large number of you at the end of September.
