The Regionals will definitely have a different feel at this facility in 2007 and 2008.
New fabric and steel barns called "Bubble Barns" have been erected way to the south of the Agricentre, that will house @280 stalls. The covered outdoor arena is right next to these barns and there is a building with washracks centrally located between the new barns. A concession area and covered patio are next to the covered outdoor ring, where the show office will also be. This area also has showers and bathrooms.
They have also placed electrical outlets for campers right beside the barns for those who do not require full service lots. These spots will still require the camping fees/permits as usual and of course the campground is still available to all who prefer that area or require fully serviced lots.
The Agricentre will house the main ring, our commercial exibition area as well as the trophy room and some stabling. The blue barns will of course also be used for stabling.

Some changes to the pre-show and first day of Regionals have had to be made as the Red Deer facility was not available to us as early as we had planned due to the QH show having expanded into Sunday evening. Unfortunately another event is booked at the back end of the show and this negated any opportunity to run the show a day longer. Therefore, there will be an overlap of pre-show and Regional classes to accomodate the dates of the show.
The Pre-show will start at 8:00 AM Tuesday July 31st in the Main Ring in the Agricentre.
The Regional show will start at 9:00 AM Tuesday July 31st in the Covered outdoor ring with the Sport Horse in Hand classes and the Outdoor Sand Ring will see the Hunter Hack classes starting at 4:00 PM, with Jumpers to follow.
Our other option was to not host a preshow this year. The Commissioners felt that there was a great enough need for the pre-show to warrant the extra work required to implement the new schedule.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, the Westerner layout is very different now. With that in mind, the commission will be accepting bookings for golf carts at a cost of $300.00 for the duration of the show. These will all have to be prebooked to ensure availability.

i have one i wanted to Qualify at the preshow this year.

Sporthorse regional classes will start first. We do not have sporthorse classes in the preshow.
The preshow is very limited this year because of the time constraints of the facility.
What are you needing to qualify in at the preshow? I will look and see when the class is or if it is offered as the case may be.
