Fund raising

  • In addition to arranging fund raising activities, entrants who sell RDAQ Art Union tickets will be able to add the sum of the tickets sold to their total fund raising sum.
  • Application Forms for Art Union ticket books will be available to Clubs later in the year from RDAQ. When the entrant returns the sold and unsold Art Union ticket books to RDAQ they should advise that they are Quest entrants and a note will be taken of the value of tickets sold. Other money raised should be brought by the entrant to the Judging when that money will be added to the information received from RDAQ.

Sashes

  • All entrants will receive a “Quest Entrant” sash donated by Australian Show Ribbons to help them in their fund raising.
  • On the night of the Judging, Australian Show Ribbons will have prepared sashes in the entrants’ club colours. The winners and runners up receive additional sashes indicating their achievement in that year’s Quest.

Prizes

  • The Personality of the Year (selected by a panel of Judges) receives a saddle and the Fundraiser of the Year (the entrant raising the largest sum Junior or Senior category) receives an English leather bridle. The runners-up receive a horse rug, both prizes donated by our sponsors Sandale Saddlery.

  • In the event that the entrant selected by the Judges as Personality of the Year also raises the most funds for the Quest, both prizes will be awarded to that person.
  • Judging: Several hours before the dinner dance, an appropriate area will be set aside for entrants to change and prepare themselves for the judging. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet the other entrants in a relaxed atmosphere. A panel of three judges will ask each entrant a set of general questions. Assessment will be made on the entrant’s personality and ability to communicate, not to answer the question ‘correctly’.

Dinner

  • The winners will be announced and presentations made during the dinner dance. Entrants are encouraged to urge as many of their club members as possible including children to attend. Clubs usually reserve a club table to support their Entrant. Wet and Dry bars are usually available.

“Item of entertainment”

  • Junior Quest entrants will be invited to provide an ‘item of entertainment’ at the Dinner Dance. This is entirely optional.
