- Yard booking is now available!

To secure a yard you can now book with your nominations.

$10 fee will reserve a yard. If you are camping & pay the $15 camp fee this will then secure a camping spot next to your booked yard. You are not able to camp elsewhere and you cannot then save yards for your team mates.


Once you have booked please text/email Jeanne 0409 669704

to request a yard number (see map below), Jeanne will then confirm the number and your name will be written on the yard for the event.


Yards will be reserved for Sponsors, Committee & Specific Event Volunteers. Please confirm with your attendance with Jeanne and number of yards required.

Hi Patsy

You don't have to book a yard. There are 109 yards so most people will be taking pot luck on the day but travellers have asked us to impliment this system so that they are assured of a yard and camp spot. In the past some people have been blocking off yards for day use and leaving campers with no yards near where they can camp. For most competitors the yards will be free.

Cheers

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the committee and volunteers for the hard work that it takes to keep the club and grounds looking good. I do understand the increase of cost in nominations (increase of value cattle hire and now cattle are hard to obtained) and the levy being put into the membership. Now you are charging a fee to reserve a pen (if required). I would like to say we are not clubs in Maryborough or Caboolture where they hire the grounds for their events and riders are required use their facility - pen/stables. I think with all the increases of cost I do not think it is warranted to charge extra fee…
