Please note in relation to arena construction:

Practice Days and Clinics, if you nominate to participate in a Practice Day and/or Clinic it will be compulsory for you to attend either an arena set up or pack up.  This is in addition to your compulsory volunteer duty.

Competitions and Protocol Days, we will endeavour to contract out arena construction and riders will be charged a levy to cover this cost at each competition and/or protocol day.  It is expected all riders who have competed at the event present at the end of the event to assist with the packing up of the arena(s), this is in addition to your compulsory volunteer duty.

*Nominating 3 or more events gives organisers some much appreciated flexibility for scheduling helpers. You won't be allocated more than your share no matter how many you nominate. 

In 2024 it will continue to be the case that failure to present for your volunteer duties will result in rejection of any entries until you have met your obligation.  Please note it is not compulsory for you to physically fill your volunter position if you are unable to.  But it is compulsory for you to find a replacement to replacemetn to undertake your duties.
