- could do a dessert sale stand at a show (with proper approval ofcourse) or at some event near yoru area
- if you do your own show
- see if anyone /or compsny will donate tack, riding gear, bags, hats etc to either raffle off of sell... i would do the more expensive stuff via raffle to encourage more people to buy a raffle as i think that usually has a betteroutcome price wise..
- talk to lumber yards, costruction workers, landscapers, electricians etc.. to see if they ever need to get ride of lumber, sand, gravel, bushes, blah blah that you have a place for it where they can dump it for free... get bo approval first of course..
damaged lumber like warped wood usually either gets tossed or discounted...just because its warped doesn't mean it can't be used for fencing etc..
sand for arena space, gravel to put in where it is generally muddy or to make walk ways nicer
bushes, plants landscapers need to get rid of bc clients dont want them anymore or something will give away or discount it as well for sale to make it more visually appealing etc..
ummm what else lights and bathroom i would get everyone to start hounding for that to be done.. if its illegal why doesnt bo take this up with a lawyer so they can get a better/faster outcome
if you really need electric then have the bo talk with an electriciam your going to want wires/cables run underground to outlets above ground... this is where talking to an electrian gets helpful.. sometimes they have excess stuff from previosu jobs that they can part with ete etc...
goodluck its very nice of you to try to help your bo out :)
