Notes re: East Cheshire Competition

  1. The times and order of classes may change to most effectively accommodate the number of entries per class.
  2. In the first round the whole team will jump in succession. In the second round the team members will jump one at a time, one from each team, in the order they jumped in the first round sequentially – rule 7.7 & 7.9.2.
  3. Classes 5 & 7 will be Two-phase – first phase 7 to 9 obstacles not against the clock but with a maximum time allowed; clear rounds – continue straight onto the second phase without a bell being rung. Second phase 4 to 6 obstacles and timed. Competitors placed on faults and 2nd round time; 
  4. The organisers may opt to run Class 3 (WS Debut) as a two-phase competition (as above) dependent on entry numbers.
  5. The competition will take place on a prepared surface.
