Grassroots Area Competitions – UPDATE

The Essex Hunt North are running the Grassroots Dressage on 11th August  but so far they have not had many entries.  They are happy to have competitors there who are not eligible to go to the Regional Final, but who would enjoy the opportunity to be in a team, perhaps in preparation for next year at the Areas.
The Littleport will be running the Show Jumping, on 17th August,  and I am sure that non eligible members will be welcome there too, again not able to qualify for the regional Final  That competition is the day after the Bloom Cup, but stabling may be  available either at Forest Edge or at Blackwater Farm, Gt Witchingham,  if you want to make a camping trip of it! Schedule to follow shortly! 
Please have a look at your PC members, and see if there are some for whom this would be as great opportunity to get started on the national scale.  This year is a pilot project, so I would like to have feedback from you (good and bad) to take back to James Loffett who has set this up.
