Arena Eventing NEWSFLASH

To all club Chairs, Committees, Team managers and members,

Due to large entries, we will be running over 2 days at Northallerton E.C. Saturday 3/11/18 & Sunday 4/11/18, enabling us to accommodate all clubs for this new area 4 qualifier.

We have looked at many options and feel this is for this first year the fairest way to run.
I know it will not please everyone, however, we have taken into consideration:
The available daylight hours, running under floodlights, ( this would pose a safety consideration, and an unfair disadvantage to some riders) and maybe riding in inclement weather in November under floodlights.
If we were to ballot, we would need to loose 100+ entries to give us the doable numbers to run on one day.
If we were to remove individual entries, this would only take us down to 208, which is not doable In one day.
If we were to ask clubs for ‘natural wastage’ we would need to loose 100+ entries.

It is appreciated that members may have other things in their diaries for the Sunday, and may not want to travel both days.

We will need helpers on both days and would ask for members to volunteer before we make a direct request to clubs.

We already have 1 arena Steward covered for both days! Thank you

We have tried to find the best solution to give all entered members the opportunity to ride in this competition.

Start 9am finish 4pm ish 

Day 1: 70cm mixed + Jnr 80cm + Snr 80cm.
Day 2: Jnr 90cm + Snr 90cm + 100cm mixed.
(This is the option preferred for course building for practical reasons, and will only affect 6 riders who would have horses on both days).

Please see Sam’s e mail re withdrawals and changes, and closing date for prelim entries.

I will speak to the office and ask for an extension until Sunday 14/10/18 for prelim entries.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes

Margaret

Final Times for Showcross this Saturday

Hi All,

BRC Area 4 SX Times – Saturday 21 April 2018

Hi Could you also please remind competitors that body protectors cannot be checked for compliance with current standards whilst the rider is on the horse. For this reason, all body protectors must be presented for checking at the same time as passport checking.

Please find attached the REVISED TIMES for the Show Cross Area 4 BRC Qualifier this Saturday.  Every rider with the exception of the 100 section will have a REVISED TIME AND REVISED RIDER NUMBER.

 

For all – the maximum change to their original time is no more than 15 minutes.

 

Please CHECK your timings carefully and make sure that your club riders are aware that the TIMES and RIDER numbers have changed from those originally issued.  Any problems with these revised times, please let me know asap.  I will not be printing until Thursday evening, so please let me know of any further changes up to that point (as well as highlighting on the day on the Dec Form).

 

Declarations forms need to be fully completed with ANY further changes, clearly highlighted and handed to the Secretary’s table at least 30 minutes before your first club rider competes.

Wishing you all the best of luck on Saturday,

 

Kind Regards,

 

 

Georgina
