Duty Days

A reminder to all members:

It is mandatory for each member to do just 1 duty day per year. If you are unable to do this or cannot swap with another member then you will be required to pay £25 which will absolve you from your duty for the year. The money will be used towards the running costs of the competition.

Eventers dressage Sunday 4th March *Cancelled*

Unfortunately the dressage on Sunday has been cancelled due to the weather.

Anyone wishing to transfer their entry to a future competition (new programme to be finalised soon but next dressage will be in May) please let know by 7pm Sunday. If you want to transfer to the show jumping next weekend we will refund the £2 difference in cash on the day.
Refunds will then be processed after the weekend and will take 5-10 days to appear in your account after being actioned.

Duty Days – A Reminder

A reminder to all members that you are required to help at one competition a year – your duty day – and that it is your responsibility to check which competition you have been assigned to and to contact the relevant organiser at least a week beforehand to confirm your attendance.
If the date you are given is not suitable, it is your responsibility to arrange suitable cover or to swap your duty with another member (we would suggest putting a query on the facebook page or contacting those members assigned to a date you can help).

Although we have a strong central support group who turn up time and time again (thank you to those stalwarts!), we are reliant on the support of members completing their duty days to enable us to run competitions.
