Missing … Branch Black Triathlon Sweatshirts …

Do You Have a Black Tetrathlon Sweatshirt???

The Branch purchased 8 x Black Tetrathlon sweatshirts, 2 have gone awol/ missing. Do you have one of them? Did you borrow one of them when you were competing at Tetrathlon? Please check. They have a red stripe on the sleeve. The ones we sell for personal use do not have the Red Stripe on the sleeve so they are easily identifiable.

We would like them returned please. Either to Meg, Bethan or Iona

Congratulations and Well Done …

Photographs, results and reports on the F&D website …

I wonder why it is that no one feeds stories and photos to the website??? I say no one, rarely would be more accurate.

Now that we are into Summer outdoor events etc such as last weekend ODE Kelsall and Tetrathlon, it would be amazing if member/parents could feed information in along with a few decent photos. I don’t need the photos to be cropped or resized as I will do that, but as a club we do need the website really to be current with up to date results, success stories and reports of events whether or not success was top level. Merely participating is surely sufficient merit for inclusion on the site.

It should not fall to the trainer or the organiser to write all the reports etc, sometimes that would be good, but why not the riders themselves.

Cheshire Shield Horse Trials and Area 5 Qualifier …

Sunday 3rd July 2011 at Somerford Park Farm

Please find attached the 2011 Cheshire Shield Schedule and 2011 Cheshire Shield Entry Form for the above event.

You will note that once again this year’s competition includes the 2011 Area 5 Horse Trials qualifier and it is therefore expected that the demand for places will be high. Please ensure, therefore, that your entries are submitted as early as possible.

All entries …

Please use a separate entry form for each rider/horse combination entry . Those riders who will be entered in a Branch Team may either submit their entries through their appropriate branch representative or direct. However, all rider entries need to be submitted by MONDAY THE 20TH JUNE.

Team Entries …

Area 5 Branches wishing to enter a team in Classes 1A, 2A or 3A but wanting to leave team selection until the last minute, should ensure that all their prospective team members have submitted, either directly or via the Branch, an entry form by the closing date of the 20th June (see above!). Notification of the membership of each team may then be in two stages:

Stage 1 – Notice of proposal to enter a team(s) without rider names by the 20th June;

Stage 2 – Notice of the team members names by Monday the 27th June.

These notices do not need to be in any particular format but must be in writing – ideally by email.

Waiting List …

As usual, a waiting list will operate for those Classes/Sections which are oversubscribed. The entry form enables you to opt in or out of the waiting list system.

Late entries …

Late entries MAY be accepted at the absolute discretion of the organisers but a late entry fee of £10 WILL be charged.

I do hope to be able to communicate with all competitors by email and keep them up-dated with event information from time to time, so please try to include a LEGIBLE email address. If you don’t have a personal email address, try to arrange to use that of a friend who will pass on news.

Thanks … Iona Pierce.
