What great weather and turnout for our January show!
Thanks to everyone who came to our January Points for Pennies show! If you weren't able to attend, we missed you and hope to see you in Perry. We had such great weather at this show that we showed outside all day on Sunday. I know our Northern paint friends were jealous as I am sure they were all freezing or snowed in. We had great participation in our Amateur Walk Trot classes and super turnout in our Youth classes. It was great to see a lot of new faces at this show, and we had some new youth exhibitors to our club who had such great shows and even managed to win Highpoint awards. It was especially wonderful to see some of our newest youth participants like Cole Carson this was his first show with us and he won the a Youth PtHA highpoint. Also for their first time showing what a great show for both Haley Graham on her PtHA youth walk trot highpoint win and Hailey Richardson on her APHA highpoint win. We were so excited to see them do so well at their first shows and look forward to seeing how well they do in the future. The high points for both FPHC and FPtHA are listed below. Congratulations to everyone!
Our next show in Tampa will be in March. It will be a 4 judge Paint-o-Rama. However, our next sponsored show will be co-hosted with the GPHC club at the Georgia National show grounds in Perry, GA. You can make stall reservations online now Randy Roser has already received over 50 stalls reservations so please get your stall reservations in. We do have a host hotel setup for this show and the detailed information is listed below. The Perry grounds require RV reservations, which can be arranged 1 of 3 ways. You can go online (www.gnfa.com) and pay using PayPal, fax in reservations to 478-988-6558 include your name, address, home and work phone, plus credit card name, number and expiration date, or you can call (478) 988-6557 to arrange your reservation. All RV reservations MUST be prepaid prior to your arrival and are first come, first serve. The FPHC officers have now arranged it so that our exhibitors can pull in on Thursday after 5:30 pm, however if you do decide to come in Thursday you will not be able to ride or even lunge until Friday morning. This is due to restrictions the facility has on the club. See below for information on the shavings procedure as this is different from how things are handled at our Tampa facility. The patterns for the Perry show in February and the zone show in December are not in the Pattern book. We will be posting patterns for the February show this week both on our website and on Facebook.
If you need to cancel a stall, please let us know asap as this is appreciated by the show staff and your fellow exhibitors. Any questions regarding stall reservations will now be handled by FPHC Vice President Randy Roser, you can email him at - email@example.com or (813) 215-8091. For shavings at the Perry show if you want to preorder them to be ready when you get to the Show grounds you must call or email Randy Roser with the quantity you want. The shavings are $7.00 per bag. If you do want to preorder shavings you must be willing to give us a credit card to charge for the shavings. The Perry Show grounds only have someone available from 8 am to 8:30 pm each day to handle shavings. So if you plan on coming late and don't bring your own shavings you might want to call or email Randy.
REMEMBER to make your stall reservations online on the FPHC website.
