Information for new members wishing to join GRPC:

You will need to complete a Membership Request Application Form (available on the Downloads page or email secretary.gawlerriverpc@gmail.com) which will then be put before the committee at the next meeting.  Please note that committee meetings are only held once a month,  so it may take up to four weeks for a response.  The applicants will then be notified of the decision by a committee member following the meeting.

If you are not sure about becoming a Pony Club member, we do offer a “Visiting rally” fee for a reduced price.  Please note that you will still need to submit a Membership Request Application Form first and be accepted by the GRPC Committee before you attend a Visiting Rally.  
The “Visitng” Fee of $10 per rally plus the nominated rally fee provides insurance for the opportunity to attend a maximum of 3 rallies within a 3 months period.  We charge a nominal $5 rally fee in excess of the $10 visitor rally PCASA charge to help cover the cost of instruction per “visiting” rally attendance.  Should you then decide to join as a full member. Only those who have not been a member of a Pony Club for a minimum of 2 yrs are able to utilize this program. This program is on a trial period from the 1st July 2018 to the 30th June 2019
