OOO, I'm all over a llama! That would be cool. Allison, when you're checking on the livestock policy for trails, could you please also check on what other equipment they have available for me to use and if there is a fee to use it?
Also, with any livestock we ever use for trails course, they are taken care of throughout the show. I keep a close eye on them, and we clean up after them with any mess they should make!
I am free this weekend and would love to help. Let me know where you need me. I also volunteer to massage any SAFE horses during the show if that is something that is needed. Let me know what time to show up.

I live pretty far away (Shelton) but a couple of friends and I are wanting to volunteer the day of. If the assistant show director is available I would like to volunteer for that position. I ran special events down in CA for 12 years but don't know a ton about horse "shows" just horses. Let me know who to PM my contact info to coordinate and finalize.
Hi. My name is Donna Barnes. I'm a recent transplant from Colorado, where I had to leave my horses with my ex-Pony Clubber daughter. I see that you need some people to help out with an upcoming show, and I would love to get involved and offer my assistance. Perhaps you could give me a call at (425) 516-3767. Thanks.
With less than two weeks to go, we really need to beef up the volunteer list. Please pm me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know you can help. Name, Phone number & availability is helpful
We'll have many jobs that need to be done throughout the day and I'm getting concerned that we will have a bunch of people show up in the morning and have no one to relieve them later in the day...or that lots of people show up in the afternoon but no one in the morning.
Keep in mind that we do have staggering times for some of the events but there will several rings going at one time, which means we need more help than ever before to keep them all going.
As we visited the grounds today and made a plan about what events will take place in which arena's it became quite clear that we will need several folks for each arena & realized we could have 2-3 arenas going at the same time.
I need 2 to 3 people to be on the SAFE Rider Campaign team to pass out entry tickets to the adult riders in helmets and to sell extra tickets for the drawing for the Troxel helmet.
There will be a tack sale booth in the vendor area and we'll need someone to monitor that and act as sales person.
The Poop Troop duties will actually be pretty minimal but it would be good to have at least one person assigned to the am and one to the afternoon to keep the pathways picked up. They have forks and buckets available to us for that!
7:30am volunteers check in for the Main Arena events (halter/showmanship/western pleasure) that begin at 8:00am
8:30am volunteers check in for the Dressage events that begin at 9:00am
9:30am volunteers check in for the Trail Course events that begin at 10:00am
Estimate:12:30pm volunteers check in for the Main Arena events (English pleasure/Hack) that begin at (aprox) 1pm
2:00pm volunteers check in for the Gaming events that begin at 2:30pm

No Llama's, Goats or other livestock for the trails. This will be an equid only show. I think the donkey(s) that may be coming will be distraction enough
A few key areas that are still missing someone:
Announcer - This is one of the most important jobs. Donida's PA system is wireless so you can hide in a porta-potty if you want to be invisible. The Announcer will carry a walki-talkie and basically be fed lines on what class is starting, if someone is lost, missing riders, etc. They will have cards with vendor info to talk about the vendors and also cards to speak about our sponsors, etc.
Parking Attendant - This will be pretty important in the early hours as folks are arriving. You will need to direct horse trailers to the load/unload zone, spectators to spectator parking and direct empty trailers to the infield of the racetrack to park.
Show Office - You will need to have show experience for this one. You will be responsible for handing out stabling assignments, last minute class entries, donations to SAFE, vendor space payments, stall payments and anything else Bonnie tells you to do.

Hey, Jet! For the trails, we're pretty good on that. Craig and I have always managed to get set up and tear down. If we do have a couple extra hands, well it is absolutely welcome, but if we have no extras to spare, Craig and I can handle it.
On that note with trails....You and Allison will have a PM in just a moment
