2019 Headin' To The Mountains Spring Novice Show: When and Where

Posted by Eleda Towle on

When:  May 4th, 2019

Doors open at 7:30am

Show starts at: 9:00am

Ends by 4:00pm (we need to be out and completely cleaned up and out so they can lock up at 5.) 

 

How to Register:

Entry fee:  Donations. Most shows charge $25 - $40, but we don’t want cost to stop you from showing!  If we receive more donations than needed to cover the cost of the hall and other show expenses, the remaining money will be donated to Harvest Hills Animal Shelter. 

 Entry fee donations will be collected in a jar on show day, so please plan for that, and maybe bring some extra in case you find someone selling a model or accessories you fall in love with!

Who Can Enter:  We’re gearing this show as a learning show for new exhibitors, but anyone is welcome to join in.  We only ask that if you’re an experienced shower, that you come with the attitude that this show is about helping new folks have a great first (or second) experience, not about ribbons.  We will be awarding paper ribbons for first through sixth place and will not be holding championship classes.  We will be taking time after most classes to discuss the placings and offer tips to help everyone develop their showing skills.  We may have a few fun activities thrown in to keep it interesting as well.  All show info is available at:  https://triplemountain.com/blogs/headin-to-the-mountains-live-show

 

Space:  We are working with the Community Center to determine whether there are enough tables for everyone to have their own full table, or whether we’ll be splitting tables between two exhibitors.  Plan to share a table, and if they find enough to give everyone a whole table, it will be a bonus!

Selling:  You are welcome to bring models and model horse-related items for sale, as long as they are displayed only on your table.  Only Triple Mountain may sell current, in-box models, but you’re welcome to bring vintage models and customs to sell at your table, along with tack, props, etc.

We are sending out periodic emails about the show to help new folks (and everyone) prepare.  When you register, we’ll add you to the show email list and Triple Mountain email list (for model news and events).  You may unsubscribe anytime, but may miss important show updates, so we recommend staying on the list at least through show day.

Email Eleda anytime with questions.  Our aim is to help everyone prepare ahead of time to make show day a lot of fun!

 

Where:  Baldwin, Maine

Map below shows location of Cumberland County in Maine, and location of Baldwin in Cumberland County:

Location:  Baldwin Community Center

534 Rt. 113, Baldwin, ME

Formerly Baldwin Elementary School, now used as the Town Office and Community Center

We will have a sign or banner on the billboard out front on show day.  The large blue arrow shows where the building entrance is.  The smaller blue arrow is our show room.  You'll just go in the entrance and turn right.

Parking is in front of the Town Office sections of the building on the left in the photo.  Please do not block the U-shaped driveway.  (Fire regulations.)

 

 Directions:

If coming from the south (Scarborough, Portland, Standish areas):

From Standish, stay straight on Rt 25 through town, heading west.  Going out of town, watch for Rt 113 to turn off on your right.  Take Rt 113 through the village of Steep Falls to Baldwin.  The Community Center is on your left... It's a mile or two past the big lumber yard, opposite side.

If coming from the west or NH via Rt 16:

Take Rt 25 over to Cornish.  After you pass the (very small) park and main street shops area, watch for Rt 5 to turn off on the left.  Take that little connector to its end, then turn right onto Rt 113.  The Community Center is just a few miles down on the right side.  Watch for the white wooden sign in the front yard that announces the show.   It is wooded coming up to it, so expect to miss it and have to turn around!

If coming from the north through Fryeburg:

In the middle of Fryeburg, turn onto Rt 5/Rt 113 at the obelisk monument (the only street light).  It will be about a 20-30 minute drive down Rt 113 through Fryeburg, Brownfield, Hiram - where you'll cross the river, and W. Baldwin.  W. Baldwin will be recognizable by the cemetery next to the fire station.   Once you go out of the main village, it's rural the rest of the way to the Community Center.  The Community Center is just a few miles down on the right side.  Watch for the white wooden sign in the front yard that announces the show.   It is wooded coming up to it, so expect to miss it and have to turn around!

Need coffee on the way?  There's a Dunkin Donuts inside Stateline Store at the Maine/NH line  or Lil Mart convenience store in the center of Fryeburg, next to Norway Bank.
