Volunteers needed for the Event schedule

Thank you for considering filling out this form.
A lot of volunteers are needed to run an event smoothly and it has been through 25 years of previous experience that has taught us that the more volunteers there are the happier everyone is.
At the Annual Labour Day Event we use almost 100 volunteers over four days of set up and event running, not counting the work required in the weeks before.

In the two weeks before an event (most done in the one week before) the cross country course needs to be decorated and flagged.
This is done in the evenings after work and on the weekends. If you can help us this would be huge. This also involved pounding and taping all the camping area stakes and spectator area stakes.
While the cross country courses are being ridden by our fearless riders the stadium courses need to be set.
The Labour Day event needs to be set up on the Sunday. This will start shortly before lunch so that it is complete by dinner time.
We require a few people who are able to move the standards and the poles around where directed as well as help to decorate the jumps with some shrubbery.

For all three events there are some very important behind the scenes people doing all the grunt work - staking cross country fences, repairing anything broken, assisting the behind the scenes organizers in keeping the event running smoothly. This person needs to be responsible enough to work with some basic tools and be able to drive an ATV or a tractor. Horse knowledge is not required - the willingess to help and be a part of a team is what is most important.
(We are very open to any keen, willing to work highschool students, grade 11 or 12, who are looking for volunteer hours for their resume. In return you are treated as one of us, watered and fed. We will also provide you with a letter of reference for your resume. )


At the end of and event there is nothing more demoralizing and depressing than seeing all the clean up work required and not having anyone there to help. We try to do as much clean up work as needed on the final day of the event but we often carry our clean up over to the following day.
Getting as many hands as possible on the final day of the event is the easiest and large pizzas usually follow as we wind down and rehash much of what happened so that we can improve on it the following year. Please join us.
