ANWARC SPRING NEWS UPDATES – APRIL



Show season is HERE, folks!  And I can’t wait to get back to the announcer stand. 


I want to give you some last minute reminders before this weekend.  


1.  Don’t forget your Coggins papers – must be within 365 days.  You will get your entry form or forms from the EIA Verifier when he/she checks your Coggins papers.  If you have pre-printed your entry forms, be sure to have the Verifier initial them, otherwise you will be sent back from registration to have your Coggins papers checked. 


2.  Please remember that if you are showing a leased horse for points, and the owner is NOT a member of ANWARC, you must give us a copy of your written lease agreement at the first show in which you compete.  Leased horses that are owned by ANWARC members are not required to have a copy of their lease on file. 


3.  Our first show is hosted by the U of A Block & Bridle Club April 16-17 and will be held at the U of A Pauline Whitaker Arena, Saturday night for the Gaited Division, and again on Sunday for the Open Division.  U of A Block & Bridle will provide concessions available for both shows.  It is a privilege to get to show at this arena, so we MUST comply with their rules.  There is absolutely NO use of the outdoor arena for warmups.  AND there is absolutely NO use of the livestock barn for stalls.  They are very strict about this, because they use the livestock barn to quarantine their own show horses, when they return from a competition, before they can be allowed back in the main barn.  If we take horses into that barn, it defeats the entire purpose of the quarantine.  There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this!  You should be able to get to the water faucet at the livestock barn for filling water buckets, however. 


4.  Due to my own shortcomings, I failed to change the front of our showbills this year to reflect that Leadline is still FREE; however, for both divisions, the Walk Only class is now a judged class with entry fees required.  So although our first showbills say Walk Only is FREE, it is not!  Sorry about the confusion, and it is now corrected on our website. 


5.  Please honor our registration deadlines. For the Open Division, the deadline to enter the halter classes is 9:00 a.m.  For Gaited, even waiting until the published 4:30 puts us in a bind.  Until you have worked registration yourself, you have no idea how difficult it is to transfer a handful of entries when several wait until the last minute to sign up for their classes.  This is particularly important in the Gaited Division, because there is so much more information that we are required to transfer to the class sheets, per the USDA.  We have to send the class sheets to the DQP by 4:45 so they can begin the inspections.  We want to run a good show and that includes one that starts on time.  So please come to registration ASAP to enter your classes, once you arrive. 


6.  For the Open Division, we still have two Buy-A-Classes available at each show.  The cost is $25.00 to purchase the class, plus entry fee (and office charge if no other classes are entered).  Buyer to supply any materials needed for the class, including pattern, class specifications, etc.  These classes can be reserved as early as 8:00 a.m. on the Monday before the show, up until the day of the show.  The placement in the schedule will be determined by what the class is, so that it will be held during the appropriate division of the show.  Very important:  we are going to offer one Buy-A-Class this year in the Gaited Division, as well!  Again, it can be any class, other than a jackpot.  To reserve a class prior to day of show, contact Cindy Pharr at 479-841-1135 or pharrsha@pgtc.com 


7.  Not too early to start thinking about your 4 hour work requirement.  Make it easier on yourself by working a little bit at more than one show.  We always need more workers, so please volunteer to help when you can.


 

Please submit a new ANWARC newsletter subscription form if any of your contact information has changed.  MOST of our news will be either posted to our website or distributed through your own club newsletters.  However, we do send out an occasional mailing as needed.  There is no charge for the subscription for the direct mailings, but it saves money for ANWARC if the newsletter is only sent to those who want or need the information.  Please include your e-mail address, if available, and print it CLEARLY!
