    Default Poplar Place March HT - Updated...Start times are up when?

    Any CoTHers going? Any from the Chattanooga area? I am hoping to take The $700 Pony for our debut, and was hoping to meet up with any other CoTHers! Also, I am looking at maybe trailerpooling, if anyone is interested or has a slot! Haven't shown there, so any insights would be awesome!

    Thumbs up Great Venue

    I'm hoping to be there, I'll be taking my pony out for his second Novice. I can't help you with trailerpooling (I live in GA) but can tell you that the venue is superb. They've just changed how most of the cc tracts run and there are some new fences. The facility is top notch, show staff is great, and the Stegmans always go out of their way to run an incredible show!

    You mean I might get to meet the Famous $700 Pony in _person_? I wonder if she will autograph my book??

    If all goes well, we will close in early February and I should be there for the March event.

    (The new place is 20 minutes away from Poplar, I can't wait!)

    Here's another idea for you, Noctis...PM all those Middle TN eventers and talk them into coming to Poplar - they will more than likely travel through Chattanooga and could find a place for that cute, cute pony! I too have "the book"...would love to have her drool a bit of nice green hay on it!

    She could do that! I don't have any contact information any more, 2 kidlets and a few computer crashes killed everything unfortunately. Cross your fingers, might be looking at a truck this week...see...this IS what I need for my birthday!

    I'll be there not that I have posted much since my hip replacement. You can find me as I have a loud appy mare and I am BN yet again because of the hip. FlightCheck since you are announcing... the 'WAPPED' in my horse name is not wRapped; and the A is like 'ahhh'. Thanks in advanced!!

    Noctis, did you find a ride? I want to meet the $700 Pony.

    Barring any last minute problems, everything's in place for us to close on the 10th, so I'll be there for the March event. And the May event, and the... they seem to have one almost every month!

    I actually got a TRUCK! I've got to get the hitch installed, but other than that, we'll be there! WOOHOO! Just don't laugh at our dressage...Herself thinks that it is a blessed waste of time, even though I've told her time and time again, she doesn't get the fun parts without it! ;-)

    Dang! I was just getting ready to offer to sell you mine! It's been sitting around for, oh, about two years.

    So, if you are entering Poplar Place in *March*, I am guessing you are going to keep her?!! I was thinking it might be nice to do a general announcement over in Off Course when the transition was official ...

    RR,

    She's family now Even the hubby agrees I'll stick something in Off Course when I can word it coherently! Or should I wait for the "Official" Day?

    Feel free to PM me.

    Unless they run sj on 2 days, it will be Sunday in the (very nice) waxed footing.

    Jan Brodkin does a great job designing SJ for the time of year and level.

    There are xc photos of most jumps on their website.

    Looking forward to it!
