It’s nearly time for the very first USEA-recognized event hosted at Derek Strine’s beautiful Barnstaple South facility in Morriston, Fl. just to the northwest of Ocala. It’s been just over a year since Derek opened the 80-acre facility to the public with the intent of creating a facility perfectly appointed for eventers, and since then Barnstaple South has played host to multiple events including clinics, schooling shows, and educational symposiums. This weekend’s first foray into recognized events will host riders competing from Beginner Novice up through Preliminary. A second event is also on the calendar for May 1-2, 2021.
If you’d like to have a chance to check out this beautiful new venue and do some early-2021 good for our sport, there are still opportunities to volunteer at Barnstaple South this weekend. You can sign up for the role of your choosing on EventingVolunteers.com. Here’s a look at the jobs still open for this weekend:
- XC Decorator
- General Event Prep
- Dressage Check-In
- XC Jump Judge
- General Clean-Up
We’ve compiled some resources on volunteering with COVID-19 regulations in mind. We’ll reference this list each week in Volunteer Nation, so take a few moments to familiarize yourself with what’s new and different.
As always, you can earn merit points when you donate your time through the USEA’s Volunteer Incentive Program. Registering to volunteer through EventingVolunteers.com makes it easy and seamless to both find a job and shift as well as learn what your role will entail.
