It would be appreciated if all Fountain of Youth (FOY) stables could be vacated by 10am on Monday, 11th May 2015.
This will allow for cleaning to be performed by AELEC staff in preparation for new arrivals on Tuesday, 12th May 2015.
Thanks for your consideration,
National Show Committee
Letter from the National Show Committee - 5th March 2015
Some explanations need to be conveyed to you the Members of the Australian Stock Horse Society regarding the 2015 National Show;
• The delay in opening date for entries was due to a number of contributing factors, the extension of the Fountain of Youth nomination deadline along with the General Manager finalising an investigation into a potential cost saving opportunity. Please note the closing date has now been extended to midnight Monday, 16th March 2015.
• The reason for the use of Nominate to process entries and you the competitor absorbing the administration fee was a decision made by the National Show Committee. In an effort to reduce costs to the Society and allow Head Office staff to continue with their normal duties, (unlike last year when staff were only available during certain hours during the day and message services during the other hours). Please note there is no horse levy imposed on the 2015 entries.
• Sponsorship has been difficult in this current economic climate and we greatly appreciate all the businesses and studs that have helped this year. Due to the losses over the last couple of National Shows, the National Show Committee has made the decision to use product sponsorship as part of the overall value in the prize package.
• Recently there has been comments and even criticism of members of the National Show Committee and the Judges Panel competing at the National Show. May I respectfully remind all Members of the Australian Stock Horse Society; we are financial Members also and volunteer to be on either committee with no remuneration for travel, time and other expenses. We are entitled to compete just as any Member is.
The National Show Committee is committed to providing the best National Show possible and we appreciate your support and any comments you wish to offer in making this annual event something we can all be very proud of.
Chairman of the National Show Committee
