Just some “heads up” for week II:

  1. Check our website or stop by the office for a revised schedule for week II.
  2. Ponys start a day earlier this week than usual so the Pony Classic can be in the Grand Prix Ring.
  3. There are a few tables remaining for the VIP tent this week.  See Jennifer in the show office for reservations.
  4. Becky Miles will be organizing the Outback Steakhouse Charity Dinner and selling tickets this week.  Don’t wait till last minute; they could sell out this year.  Tickets for the dinner will be sold near the show office.
  5. We have 24 stalls still remaining for week II.  Remember that next week hosts the $25,000 Pony Classic sponsored by NickerDoodles, the all-natural horse treats.  Call 770 602 2510 for reservations.

Please make sure we have your stall reservations for Charleston soon.   The tents will be going up earlier this summer so we need a final number to give our tent man: 770 602 2510 until June 24th then 843 768 5503.
