    I know it's Radnor weekend, but who is going to be at Fair Hill? How long are you travelling to get here? First timers?

    Well, I am going but not competing. I will be volunteering all day Saturday. If I drove, it would take me about 8 hours. I will instead, take the train and be met at the station by my DAUGHTER! Yay.
    Fair Hill is a gas, BTW. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I'm entered and am now in the "holding my breath hoping it all hangs together" stage of event prep. It will be the first *** for me and my horse. I'm already having event anxiety dreams! I'm also very excited since 5 weeks ago I thought I was out for the season, but my 40-mumble body has really come through for me and healed amazingly well.

    There is a whole contingent of us who train with Wofford who are entered, and we're all "virgins"! It should be an interesting time http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    I will be going to groom but won't be going up till Friday morning I think. I had a blast last year at Radnor, loved the food, so what is great about Fair Hill? Most importantly, how is the food!?!
    Grab mane and kick on!

    "Emmy" and I are grooming for Michael Pollard (Psalm, Nero), Natalie Bouckaert (West Farthing), and Carl Bouckaert (The Boomer) at Fair Hill and Pan Am. Should be lots of fun!

    I'll be there doing my picture-thing. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif This will be my third year, but I'll be all alone with my mom this time...Oh well, we enjoy it. It's one of my favorite places to go.

    Well, I can't tell you about the food as the only times I've been to FH I have been in the 10-minute box all day! Crab cakes are the local specialty, so I'd be sure to get ahold of some of them!
    yventer, JCW will get you 'virgins' thru it all with flying colors! No worries! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    Yes, I'm going to do photos and stories for two publications (on the Pan Ams). Good luck to all competitors!

    I will be going there for my first time! I just moved about 15mins away from there, and have been loving the fact that alot of events are within a few hours of me! And spending alot of time at FH in general for schooling, schooling events, and drooling over all the recognized stuff.

    I can't wait! I want to try and be there pretty much every day. I signed up to volunteer, but got to it late and haven't heard back yet http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif

    Don't give up on volunteering! I know they need more people on Sat. Call the office number (listed on the website) and give them your info.
    I will be there Fri, Sat and Sun; hope to see you there!

    Hey, watch for Gina Economu from California in the 3 star. Gina introduced me to the wonders of eventing and kept me going through the ups and downs of my early days in the sport. She's great fun and a true sportsman with a fantastic attitude.

    I'm going "just for fun" this year. I'll be the one attached to the huge black German shepherd dog (come say hi, he's friendly!). I'm bringing Nox as motivation to keep myself out of the AWESOME trade fair (spent my fall trade fair budget at Radnor Sat, sigh). It is only a 1.5 hr drive for us. Fairhill is always a lovely event and worth any trip to get there! Especially this year with the Pan Am riders!

    Cheers,
    Arcadien

    My friend/coach Becky Douglas is leaving for Fair Hill on Friday. Will take her 2 days to get there from Minnesota. She's bringing 2 horses - her long time partner Highland Hogan and her young horse Courageous Comet. Please take photos and keep me posted on how she is doing.

    Thanks
