Pony Club makes a switch

March 25, 2008

Bingara Pony Camp will be held in April this year, rather than the second week of the October School holidays.

In recent years, a Mini Camp has been held in April.

Members made the decision to swap the Mini Camp and the full week of Pony Camp, after learning that the Showground would not be available in October, due to the Motorhome Show.

Pony Camp will run for five days from April 13 to 19, following exactly the same format as the traditional October camp.

A One Day Event will be held on Friday, April 18, and gymkhana on Saturday, April 19.

A Zone Jamboree team will be picked as a training squad. Riders chosen for the squad will need to attend as many rally days, which are held once a month, as they can.

The final jamboree team will be finalised at the Mini Camp, which will be held at the end of September.

Pony Camp forms are available from Noelene Ozols and from Helen Nicolle.

Members will be discussing final plans for Pony Camp at their next meeting on April 9, and will be holding a working bee to prepare the Showground ready for Pony Camp.

The working bee on April 6 will be combined with a rally day.
