Cheshire Shield SATURDAY 1st July 2017 – Third Bulletin

Times

The times for the competition are attached and will soon be published on the East Cheshire BPC website. The document attached is a Microsoft Excel document divided into sheets. Each sheet contains a single Class and Sections. The Class/Section you are interested in can be accessed by clicking on the tab in the bottom left hand corner of the document.

If you discover any errors or omissions, please let me know immediately.

We have tried to accommodate as many requests as possible but a few which came in very late in the day we have not been able to deal with before the allocation of times. There may be an opportunity to address any outstanding requests on the day but if not, my apologies.

It is very important that the event runs to time and I would ask that all competitors ensure that they are at their allotted  arena or course start point in good time – if you arrive early we will try to slot you in if there is a natural gap but priority will be given to those presenting on time.

Declaration

As you know, we have incorporated the Start Fee into the entry fee this year so on arrival on site you most of you will only need to pay £10 for the bib-deposit. It is most important that you declare and you will not be allowed to commence any phase of the competition until you have done so.

Results

We will try to get scores & results out as quickly as possible after the conclusion of each class but we would ask to understand how complex the scoring is for this competition. There are, in fact 7 separate competitions in each class. We have an overall Cheshire Shield Team and Individual competition for PC members and a CS individual competition for non-PC riders. Additionally there are separate qualifying team and individual competitions for Area 4 and Area 5 members. I am, as ever, very grateful to our team of scorers who have been closely involved in the build up to the event to try to ensure things run smoothly on the day.

Weather

We have had a good amount of rain today which should help to soften the going a little. The weather for the weekend is likely to be fair – no rain forecast when I last checked. Nevertheless, please prepare yourselves and your horses for the possibility of some sunshine – plenty of sunscreen and water.

XC Courses

The whole course, which is looking superb as usual, will have a final inspection on Friday morning and will be available for walking from 2 p.m. on Friday. When walking, please be considerate of others AND KEEP DOGS ON A LEAD, park considerately and prettily on the right hand side of the track to ensure you do not block space or access for trade stands and infrastructure.

The course times and distances are attached as are course maps.

Please note, there are no ‘L’ fences on any of the courses but there is one ‘Black Flag’ alternative fence on the PC100 at fence 17 – approaching the water

I hope you have a wonderful and successful day.

Good Luck …Geoff

Cheshire Show success for CHNPC

In the glorious sunshine, we had a fantastic time competing in the Inter branch PC Hunt Relay. The day started well with our hard work being recognised when we gained 2nd place in the Tack and Turnout competition.

The heats began and they were fast and furious. Soon to our delight we were through to the finals and we won!

Well done to all the other teams and we hope they enjoyed the competition as much as we did.

Thank you to CHS for inviting our branch to send a team and for organising it on the day.  It is a great competition and so prestigious to ride in the main arena.

University of Chester Equestrian Club sunny fun at Bolesworth

We have had a great weekend helping in The Pony Club zone at The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show! Huge thanks go to our University of Chester Equestrian Club who volunteered on Saturday and to our Pony Club members who volunteered today – you were all great! People visiting the zone were able to learn about feeding, bandages and boots, points of a pony, racing and grooming! Our ponies Angus and Barney were very well behaved and enjoyed the attention!

Junior Regional Tetrathlon Competition 3rd and 4th June 2017

Moreton Morrell College and Xcel Leisure Centre, Coventry

162 competitors took part in the Junior Regional Tetrathlon Competition earlier this month. In order to be able to take part competitors have to be invited by their Team Manager. This year the Wales and Borders team, which consists of competitors from Area 5, 10 & 18, had two teams of 5 girls and 3 individual boys. We had a great turnout from Area 5 this year with 5 out of the 10 female competitors selected being from Area 5! All of our Area 5 girls have been training hard to perform at their best during this event!

Red Dragons

  • Annabel James – East Cheshire (Captain)
  • Ella Booth – Cheshire Hunt North
  • Orla Stott – Cheshire Hunt South
  • Deryn Cressey-Rogers
  • Megan Jones

Green Dragons

  • Seren Thorne (Captain)
  • Keeva Stott – Cheshire Hunt South
  • Kiera Booth – Cheshire Hunt North
  • Molly Cressey-Rogers
  • Ffion Priddle

Annabel James achieved the “Best Shoot” scoring a fantastic 980 (out of a possible 1000 points). Followed closely behind by Ella Booth who scored 960! Wales and Borders also had the “Best Shoot” in the boys section too with Alex John scoring the maximum possible score of 1000! The only competitor to do so in this competition.

There were very few clear rides on a taxing and technical course but Cheshire Hunt South competitor, Orla Stott was one of only 3 of our Wales and Borders female competitors to have a clear cross country ride achieving 1400 points.

On Saturday evening there was a buffet and a disco. Each region had to prepare a small performance. This year the theme was superheroes!

Wales and Borders performed to the theme tune of Queen’s Flash Gordon! The choreography and the costumes were successfully organised by the team captains mothers – they did a fantastic job.

We were all absolutely delighted when it was announced that we had come joint first with Scotland!

Overall in the competition the girls Red Dragon team came 5th out of 21 teams and the Green Dragons 14th.

Morgan Thompson, one of our W&B boys came 1st place in the boys competition – he was also our Flash on Saturday night – complete with blonde wig!

Well done to everyone who took part and a huge congratulations to all of those in Area 5!
