Oct. 18    Hunter pace: Triple crown finale

Below is the key information for each event. Pre-registration and pre-payment required to reduce lining up at the registration desk.

  1. Email the completed (please type) entry form  per rider to events@ottawavalleyhunt.com well in advance of the event, by 10 pm on the night before the event at the latest. If your form is not filled out clearly, you will be asked to fill it out again.  In addition, you must bring the completed form with you to the event.
  2. Take care of the $50 payment per rider. The address to use for e-transfers is purchases@ottawavalleyhunt.com. We have an autodeposit, but sometimes it asks for a password as an added security feature. If so, use "3rdHunterPace". If you are paying for someone else, include in the comments field who the payment is for. The link to pay with credit card is at the bottom of this page. When we have received pre-payment from all the members of your team, you will be emailed your team number
  3. Make sure to print out, complete/sign and bring with you this OVH waiver for each rider. Write your team number (emailed to you once we've received pre-payment from all team members) on the top right corner of each waiver. The greeter at the gate will collect your forms and give you a tag for your team. This will save you from lining up at the secretary’s booth.
  4. If you forgot your forms, if there were changes or you are paying with cash or cheque, only one person per team should come to the secretary's booth. Wearing a mask to the registration desk is recommended. You don't have to wear a mask when riding.

Note that there may be a photographer(s) taking photos at these events and that the photos may be used in OVH’s social media, website, emails and collateral. If you have any questions, please contact events@ottawavalleyhunt.com for more information.
