All parking will be down below by the stabling barns in the designated car parking area. If there is a dressage test going on in the ring closest to the drive please wait until they are done. Please check in at the volunteer table under the pavilion a half hour before your scheduled start time.
Dressage and Show Jumping will pick up their lunches at the food trailer, they should be ready and waiting for you if you submitted an order. Cross Country lunches will be delivered on Sunday. We will not be delivering lunches on Saturday as it is only for an hour. If you would like lunch be sure to drop off your lunch order before the briefing so you can pick up your lunch before heading to your fence, otherwise you can pick it up when you are done judging. Don't forget to drop off your lunch orders before heading to your fence.

Dressage warm up for rings 1 & 2 will start in the sand ring below Show Jumping . Riders for rings 1 and 2 will be sent to the final warm up 5 minutes before the start of their test. Competitors will enter and exit the final warm up to the left of the dome. Please instruct riders to enter the arena as soon as the horse before them heads down the centerline for their final halt for ONE lap around the inside of the ring at the trot and then exit to wait for the signal to start. Sunday the on deck rider may quietly warm up in Ring 2. We need to stay on schedule!
Regardless of your assigned position, we will need all hands on deck for course changes. Thank you
