Updates on Badminton 2022
The draw was made yesterday and will be published soon on www.badminton-horse.co.uk why not take a look to see where your horse is running. Lots of EHOA owned horses competing, exciting times ahead! In our hospitality marquee we will have the daily EHOA horses competing listed so members can see and support their fellow Owners.
If you are planning on attending Badminton and wish to use our hospitality marquee, please can I ask you to check that your membership is up to date. If you’re not sure drop me an email and I will respond accordingly. It makes it much easier for those volunteering on the day and less onerous on paperwork when you check in. just to note we will be permitting guests, should space permit, but will be charging per day for them. Rates for 2022 are:
We will be welcoming new members so do bring along friends, family or like minded eventing friends who would like to join the EHOA!
Should you wish to use the card machine whilst in the marque over the week I just need to let you know we have to charge £1.75 per transaction, sadly we get charged that amount per transaction by the bank! So, if you prefer to pay by cash, we will be happy to accept it!
The Drinks Reception and Dinner in the Directors tent has had a huge take up and tickets are now all sold out – just waiting on the final payments but we will be holding a waiting list for those members who might still want to come and join the fun because as we know with horses there are quite often last-minute changes! Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to go on the wait list and we will respond if a place becomes available.
Board director Mark Corbett has offered to walk the Voltaire Design Grassroots cross country course with any competitors or connections should they wish on Tuesday evening. Let us know if you would like to take up this offer. Mark will also be walking the 5* track on Friday afternoon if any members would like to join him. Do make yourself known and timings will be confirmed with those people participating.
We are still looking for a couple of volunteers for Thursday and Sunday to assist with running the front desk – please let Tor know if you can help – Totsy1@hotmail.co.uk
For those members that are involved with the grassroots we are looking forward to welcoming you in the marquee when you have finished competing. We will have some EHOA representatives out and about on Tuesday and Wednesday so do make yourselves known to them. Don’t forget if you are involved with prize giving, it takes place in front of the main house directly after the 5* first trot up. Shearwater Insurance are supporting the EHOA members with additional prizes so even if you are not involved with the main prize giving you could potentially be required for the EHOA one – keep a close eye on the score boards! Lots of fabulous goodies on offer and a photo in front of Badminton House!
Not long to go now until we welcome you to Badminton – see you in the great park in 14 days.
