>Area 9 Members selected for UK Polocrosse Team

Four members of the Ledbury Hunt Pony Club have been selected to play for the UK under 16yr polocrosse team for 2014.

This is a great achievement for Freddie Leith, Charlie Ralli, Meg Smith and Erin Tufnell all from Ledbury, who will make up a team of 8 with the four other players coming from Kent, Yorkshire and the Midlands. For Area 9 players to make up half the UK under 16 squad is a real success story for polocrosse in our Area.

They are due to play a series of International matches against Ireland over the Summer where I am sure they will be great ambassadors for the UK .

>Sr Regional Tetrathlon 9-10 August 2014

Click Here for Printable 9-10Aug Regional Tetrathlon Entry

The Senior Regional Tetrathlon, to be held at Aylesford Equine Centre, near Melton Mowbray and Meres Leisure Centre, Grantham on 9 and 10 August 2014. The Schedule is attached.

We would like your nominations from your Areas for the Central England Senior Tetrathlon Team. Please note:
The triathlon elements of the Tet will be as for the Senior event (ie Boys: 10 m shoot, 4 min swim, 3,000 m run; Girls: 10 m shoot, 3 min swim, 1,500 m run).

The ride will be over a 100 cm course (ie Intermediate).

We do not believe there will be a limit on numbers, but this is yet to be confirmed. We will try and include as many team and individual competitors as we can, but we may have to select final numbers, so I would ask you to provide details of recent Tetrathlon scores with your nominations.

Although the Schedule says camping is £30 per pitch; this has been reduced to £30 per family.
We need to get the Central England entries in before 21 July, so to give you as much time as possible, could we have your nominations by Sunday 13 July, please.
Nominations can be made by e-mail, but we must receive a competitor entry form (also attached) for each individual, signed by the DC, and a cheque for the correct amount (payable to “UK Inter Regional Tetrathlon Champs”) before the 13 July.
We have already received the following nominations:

Area 12
Corinna Leadbeater – Oakley Hunt West
Rebecca Leadbeater – Oakley Hunt West
Kate Dugher – Whaddon Chase
Sammy Bousfield – OBH Chilterns
Hamish Firth – Whaddon Chase
Oliver Firth – Whaddon Chase

Area 9
Miranda King – VWH
Ellie Bliss – Cotswold
John Church – OBH
Jack Church – OBH

Please note that being on the list above or being nominated by your PC/Area is not a guarantee of selection; we are just keen to get the process moving. The selected competitors will be announced as soon as possible after the 13 July. In the event that a competitor is not selected after submitting the form and cheque, we will return or destroy the cheque.

Again, we would ask that the Areas or individual Pony Clubs support the purchase of cross-country sweatshirts, silks, polo shirts and swimming hats in the distinctive Central canary yellow and black, to lend to competitors . We managed to refresh some of the clothing (sweatshirts and swimming hats) this year before the Junior Regionals, but I bought these in the hope that I would be refunded. Unfortunately, so far, this has not been the case. If each of your Pony Clubs could donate £10, or each Area Triathlon Fund an amount comparable to the number of Branches in your Area, we would have sufficient funds to pay for what we have already bought and put something aside to replenish the stocks for the future (and perhaps purchase running vests). This clothing will be shared by the Mini, Junior and Senior Regional Teams, and will provide a resource for future competitors as well as those selected this year.

Please get in touch with me or Jill (contact details below) if you have any queries.

Best Regards

Fred Church

Photographer for the Day

Area 9 Prince Phillip Cup Games was hosted by Berkeley Hunt South Pony Club with help from Beaufort Hunt Pony Clubs Paul Bird. Unfortunately the original date had to be cancelled and with the continuing bad weather a change of venue was also needed. A very nice venue was found at Dauntsey, Wiltshire and on Saturday June 7th Area 9 had their Mounted Games competition. One shower of rain was all we had in the morning while the senior tack and turnout competition was going on, from then on we had a lovely day.

The senior competition had eight teams competing which meant two heats and a final. North Hereford Pony Club had a great morning winning four out of the eight races and winning the competition, things then got a little bit tighter with Cotswold Vale Hunt Pony Club coming 2nd and Croome Pony Club taking the 3rd and final qualifying place, having tied on points with Beaufort Hunt Pony Club, a tie break race was run and Croome one this. Good luck to North Hereford, Cotswold Vale and Croome who are off to zone, we all wish you the best of luck. Beaufort took 4th slot, Old Berks 5th and Berkeley Hunt South 6th.

In the afternoon we had the junior competition with 9 teams competing, two heats and a final again. The clear winners here were the Worcestershire Hunt Pony Club winning 5 out of the seven races, the competition then was a bit tighter with 5 points between 2nd and 6th. In 2nd place was South Hereford & Ross Harriers Pony Club, 3rd Cotswold Vale Farmers, 4th Beaufort Hunt, 5th Old Berks Stars and 6th Berkeley Hunt South Pony Club. Congratulations to Worcestershire, South Hereford & Ross Harriers and Cotswold Vale Farmers who are off to zone, good luck to you all. We then had a novice competition with 5 teams competing, we had an assisted section and a lead rein section, all had great fun with Berkeley Hunt South winning the assisted and Old Berks coming 2nd.

In the lead rein section Cotswold Vale Farmers were victorious, Berkeley Hunt South 2nd and the Worcestershire 3rd.

A great day was had by all, with everyone encouraging one another some true team spirit was witnessed. We have certainly come on from last year with even children vaulting on this year, it was lovely to see. Well done to all the members involved you should all be very proud of yourselves. A huge thank you to all those that made the day very special and very successful. Good luck to all those going to zone, we are sure you are going to be very competitive this year.
