We are trying something a little different and making use of the Memorial Day Weekend to start the 2019 Show Jump Rally on Saturday, May 25. Haul in will be from 9 to noon with the first briefing at noon. There will be one SJ round Saturday and 2 on Sunday. We hope to finish the rally by 6 pm on Sunday and those living close by can haul home Sunday evening. Stabling overnight on Friday night and Sunday night is available for those traveling from further away (like Bend / Roseburg etc) The reasoning is that our most of our members will not have to miss a school day on Friday, May 24.

This is a qualifying rally - members who want to use this rally to qualify for USPC Championships 2019 have to email a letter of intent to Annie Winter, RS, with the division you intend to compete at Championships. Include your eligibility certification levels as per the 2019 SJ Rulebook. Email to Anniewinterrs@gmail.com
