Volunteers for a PPG event is a very essential component for a smooth, time efficient day of competition. We are in need of volunteers to assist with the positions of Score Keeping, Line Judging and Prop Crew throughout the day. If you are not sure of the games rules or ways you can help there will be a Officials’ Briefing before the event at 0945. All help is more than appreciated, welcomed and essential! When riders or on foot competitors are not competing we would like you to assist with prop crew and get a parent and or guardian to take care of your pony.
Please let Allie Vieweg the Regional PPG Chair know if you are able to volunteer for this day.
