Toowoomba Jump Club One Day Event Full Results

Thank you from Toowoomba Jump Club...

To Megan Drennan who again organised the Young Event Horse competition.  Also a very special thank you to Amy McCabe for filling in for Megan on Sunday.
Kerri-Lee Ryder who stepped in as dressage steward and kept everything flowing.  Kirstie McLean drove a huge distance to come down and be the Crisis manager both days.
Ken Jensen, who did the CD and Averil Hawthorne who did the judging.  Then on Sunday Guy Creighton was CD, and Averil again judged and also was the commentator for the YEH.

Thanks to all those club and non-club volunteers who helped throughout the event.  Thank you to Lloyd Raleigh and nominate for all the scoring.

To Anthony Freeman and his helpers who did the cross country work, roping, oiling, painting.  We now have a great dragon and a large duck....thanks John Tod for welding the duck head and neck and other improvements.

As October will be a CCI, we will be building more cross country jumps e.g. a 95 duck at the water and a crocodile. Kathy Humphrey has just attended an FEI cross country course design course at SIEC in Sydney and has many new ideas for the course.

Members and riders, if you felt the event could have been improved in any way, please provide feedback to the Toowoomba Jump Club.
