We are planning a lovely evening on Saturday! After the events, join us for a wonderfully planned menu, cash bar, and a few little bits of fun. Special party favour for every diner (thanks to Gail Thompson and the Nationals Organization Committee)! We will also be announcing lifetime awards and individual placements for the day. You do not have to join us for dinner (there is a bar area) but are you sure you don’t want to??? Check out this menu by the caterer (and this is the caterer used at the Thunderbird Equestrian events – not a burger here, kids). There are still limited tickets available for the banquet but you must contact right away.

Printable Schedule Information for Competitors

Seemed there were a few of you who just couldn’t see the schedules and running orders in the 2017 Schedule website page.

I have created a separate page with JUST printable material so it is easily reviewed and documents selected for printing.

And I have added a WORD copy of the 2017 Schedule page so you can download it and bring it with you if you are already getting ready to travel. The WORD doc has live links to the printable documents if you open it on your device. There is a PDF version of the same page but the links are not live.

I hope this helps everyone!

This page will contain the downloadable Catalogue when it is finished.

Everything you thought you wanted to know!

All schedules are now posted!

Running orders, group orders, competitors entered, how many dogs in each division, when can you watch who – what else can we tell yah??

Check out 2017 Schedule tab on menu for:

Don’t miss out on finding KEYS! We are not going to tell you what is IN the Chest – but it will be so worth it!

Closing tonight at Midnight (July 7)

so… more panicking on the Nationals front…  of course today is closing so there are a few that just love a countdown, hey?

If you go online and see:
    Registration closes on July 7 – that is midnight tonight – not right now.
If you email and get the following message:
    I am away until July 11, 2017
SHE is still answering emails – so please send her one. You can also cc me so that we know you at least attempted to enter the Nationals AT THE LAST MINUTE (okay i am sorta smiling) and we will honour the entry attempt.
Trying to make sure there are no stressful moments out there. I repeat: If you try and register today on, and you have issues with password/login we will recognize it as a valid attempt to enter by the closing. Just make sure you send an email to us, backing up your attempt.
Emails after midnight, however, will not be included in this arrangement. So, for goodness sakes stop procrastinating. And share this with your fellow procrastinators that maybe not on the aglican list
yours (with attempts at humour)
