BRC Area 4 Winter Dressage Qualifier at Richmond Equestrian Centre, Sunday 23rd October 2016 TIMES

Morning All,

Apologies for the short delay in getting the times out to you for the Winter Dressage at Richmond Equestrian Centre on Sunday 23rd October 2016.

Please find attached the times in club order by surname.  area-4-brc-winter-dressage-times-v6final

I apologise in advance to the multiple riders with 2-3 hours between tests.  There are about 7 riders with >2 hour wait for their 2nd test, predominantly these people are doing 2x Novice tests and as such are riding in the morning and the afternoon.  In N30, there are 20 multiple riders out of a class of 27, therefore someone has to go at 9.53am and won’t enter the arena for their 2nd test until after 1pm.  Where possible I have spent time trying to fix this problem the best way I can.

Please let me know if I have transposed the J/S column incorrectly or anything else for that matter, as I have copied and pasted so many times, I think I’ve worn the button out!

Can I ask you to check and double check your entry and if you can see any “quick fixes” to make times more sociable for your riders, please let me know ASAP.  Also please see the attached note from Margaret, Area 4 Chair – re parking on the day.

I look forward to hearing from you, (mobile is 07795071741/landline 01937557701), if you have any queries/changes.

Deadline for any withdrawals is next Tuesday 18th October – 5pm.

Good luck to all competitors on the day,

Kind Regards,

Georgina

Competition Secretary

Morning all Chairs, competitors and Chef d’Equipes.

This year’s WD has been opened to individual riders as well as teams. This has increased the number or entries so 23rd October is going to be a busy and very long day.

We have 233 riders of which 122 are multiple test riders. You can imagine the problems this has presented trying to allocate times with a reasonable gap between tests.

Georgina has spent hours on this and has given a timetable I consider to be acceptable.

Last year we had major problems with the parking, so this year we are asking ALL riders and members to help.

We had lorries parking on the drive last year and this is not acceptable, as emergency vehicles need a clear access.

Parking stewards will be in place, please respect and observe their directions.

Sadly there is no overflow parking and this is a HS issue which the Official Steward Mary Kay will be keeping a close eye on.

Where ever possible, single test riders have been placed at the beginning of the day, seniors and juniors alike. We ask all riders as soon as you have ridden and collected your test sheet, and checked your score against the main score board, that you vacate the lorry park leaving spaces for people competing later in the day.

Please don’t think we want rid of you but this is the only way we can avoid the problems we had last year😊

If you have any queries regarding your score, please use a ‘query’ form which will be on the secretaries table ASAP.

The results will be ‘going live’ on area 4 FB page ……hopefully throughout the day.

Final results will be completed as usual on the day but presentation of rosettes and trophies will be at the AGM the following evening. (details on area 4 Webb page) Everyone is welcome, so please make sure a representative from your club is there to collect your rosettes.

Hopefully this will eliminate snarling up the parking, members having to ‘hang around’ for prize giving and have a reasonable journey home.

Thank you for your cooperation and hopefully the day will run smoothly.

Good luck to everyone and fingers crossed for good weather.

Regards

Margaret

Area 4 Chair
