running your own arca challenge
To encourage more clubs to host challenges, ARCA offer funding to help cover some of the expenses you might encounter. On request ARCA are willing to…
- Cover the costs of place ribbons for all challenges, these are the generic ARCA interclub 1st-6th ribbons used in all challenges. These ribbons can be ordered through Colberne Industries (9452 1222 www.colberne.com.au) where the ribbons are a standing order. Have the invoice addressed/forwarded to yourself and submit it to the committee for payment. All left over ribbons are to be totaled and passed on the next host club.
- Donate $500 to each club hosting a challenge to go towards trophies, sashes, prizes, officials, judges, safety etc
- Consider all requests above $500 to go towards larger expenses such as an onsite Ambulance, ground or equipment hire if the host clubs stands to make less than $1000 profit.
This manual is to be read in conjunction with the current EA/FEI Rulebook for the relevant discipline and the ARCA gear check rules.
