Kumbia is reschedule to the 18th and 19th April. Noms are carried over and a new program is available here
Exciting weekend for the Future Stars Series across the state.
Ridgelands, Boulia and Kragra futurities scores have come through and after a decent effort to run an 80 from Karl and Two Bob an Acre, the combo have jumped to 2nd place with an 86.00 average, only trailing Pete and Leanne's RAINSTORM's on 87.67 by a whisker
The Dillon's Miss America, with Sean riding at Boulia, qualified with their 3rd run with an 85 to get their average to 84.67, as well as a number of other youngsters in the Dillon camp.
Ridgeland's saw a small field of promising youngsters with both Craig Ellrott and Spintown and David Howard's hustler equal 85 in the first round. The run off was one by the Ellrott combo
Springsure will be the one to watch this weekend with at this stage 59 horses starting
Good luck to all and checkout the Future Stars leaderboard here
With 1,042 nominations into Home Hill, Lesley Sexton and Bill & Stephanie Tudehope and the rest of the HH committee weren't sure how to fit them all in!
Originally with 10 first round runs restriction, they've found a few extra cattle and have restricted the draft back to the following:
Without their extra effort in the past couple of days, there would have only been around 150 competitors being able to attend
We really wish we could make it there as its reknowned for being one of the best drafts about for a great party!
Congratulations to the Home Hill crew in being able to fit all 196 competitors in!
Please note, Manumbar draft now opens on the 7th April, 12 Noon - Not Friday as previously advertised
The Alpha futurity saw the Future Stars Leaderboard jump from 4 horses to 11 that are now qualifying
Peter Black and RAINSTORM have set an incredible pace early on with an average 87.67 based on 3 scores from 4 starts
The best 3 scores will qualify so there's a few contenders already chomping at Blacky and Rainstorm heels, including Karl Burton sitting on an 89.00 after only 2 starts riding TWO BOB AN ACRE!
Karl also has all 3 back in into the Futurity Final at Alpha out of 11 finalists (First rounds only apply for the FSS leaderboard, btw)
The next events are scheduled for Boulia, Ridgelands and Kragra next weekend
Good luck to all the youngen's out there!
The Future Stars Series for 2014/2015 series is now available here:
As we mentioned, we have scaled back the series - there won't be a final but we can confirm, thanks to Wally Rea's generous support, there is still $3,000 up for grabs.
Here's the rules:
Exciting news for all those with Futurity horses in the south / south east - Kragra are having their first - and one of QLD most southern - Futurity!
The Futurity draft is sponsored by Pete & Shari's Haymac Campdraft Horses and is for horses Under 5 years old (4 years or younger)
The Futurity will be part of our "Future Stars Series" leaderboard
We've had to scale back the series for 2014/15.
We're hoping to make it bigger for the 15/16 Series.
Anyways, get your noms into Kragra next Wednesday at Noon for a chance to get your younger horses going
Since 2011, Campdraft Central has never allowed competitors to nominate in more than one draft on the same weekend, when they were geographically close together.
Recently, we've changed it so a notice appears now regardless of where the drafts are.
After some feedback from competitors and with the new 24 hour nominations, at this stage it will work in the following way for Kragra and Kumbia opening next week:
1. Kumbia opens Monday at Noon
2. Kumbia committee will settle nominations Tuesday night
3. For those successful, you won't be able to nominate for Kragra on Wednesday at Noon
4. For those on a wait list (if any) at Kumbia, you'll be able to nominate
5. If you are successful at Kragra, you nominations will automatically be removed off the wait list at Kumbia
This isn't an ACA rule or anything - its just something that was implemented years ago based on the feedback from secretaries.
We wanted to ask your feedback on this issue as well - should you be able to nominate in two drafts on Campdraft Central, be accepted at both and then you decide which one to scratch?
