Calliope Campdraft nominations have been finalised and they are restricted to 8 first round runs - excluding the Restricted Open
Its the first year they've run a Restricted Open - and they have around 20 horses in it - and they are wanting to ensure those open horses can have the chance at having 2 runs as well.
For those over the limit, you'll need to adjust your nominations and process your invoices.
For those on the waitlist, there maybe scratchings but you'll need to sit tight over the next couple of days to see how the extra runs they saved pan out as people adjust. The secretary will contact you in due course
Again, we are glad we can offer the 24 hour nomination tool to Calliope to try and accommodate as many people as possible into their draft as its been a record year for noms with their new June date.
Due to excessive nominations (890 nominations with room for only 550), the Condamine committee using the 24 hour nominations system have put in place the following restrictions:
* 8 run limit per competitor.
* 2 Runs per Horse (excludes Ladies and Juvenile)
* 2 Runs in the encouragement
There's still a substantial wait list so those of you who need to adjust your runs, if you can do so ASAP, the committee will be able to work through the waitlist when runs become available
Thanks to the committee for doing their best to try and fit in as many as possible
Ladies and Encouragement has been moved to the Friday and the start time changed to 12pm.
Also, please ensure you fill out the required Health Declaration that MUST be present on entry to the grounds
No health dec - no entry to the camp
Thanks for your help on this to save the secretary, Melissa Bethel, chasing everyone up as it is a council requirement
Exciting news about the Future Stars Series - we've found a venue for the final!
With the help from the awesome crew at Clermont, the final will be run at the Gold Cup in June!
More details to follow later in the week
With the Retreat Creek, Clarke Creek (Restricted Futurity), Weetalaba, Gold City (Restricted), Burke & Wills, Bowen River and the Clermont event, there's still a huge opportunity for the young ones to pick up their best 3 scores
Big thanks to Clermont and can't wait to see how it pans out!!
Clarke Creek Campdraft will now open nominations to 12 first round runs excluding the Restricted Open Draft.

Who will win the coveted silver spurs in the Acton Land & Cattle Rocky Rush Classic Challenge?
Julia Creek is now 12 Runs excluding the Restricted due to extra cattle
Same deal at Gold City with extra cattle - they are now 10 runs excluding the Restricted Open
Glenmorgan, like so many drafts this year, got hammered with nominations with almost 1,200 noms! Even when it had restrictions of 12 run per competitor plus 2 runs per horse
Using the 24 Hour Nominations system, the committee have reduced the first round runs back to 8 per competitor.
Unfortunately, there is still a considerable wait list.
For those of you who were successful and have over the 8 limit, you've been sent an email to reduce the number and re-process. Please could you do this within 48 hours.
For those who were accepted and have 8 runs or less, you've been invoiced automatically via email.
Thanks to Glenmorgan for doing everything they can to fit as many people into the draft
