Second Bulletin – 27th June 2016

As previously indicated, we are very full in all classes and still have a waiting list for some. Altogether we have about 260 entries which are divided as follows:

  • Class 1        (PC90) – 90 – 3 sections with 6 Area 5 teams and 9 Area 4 teams;
  • Class 2      (PC100) – 60  – 2 sections with 6 Area 5 teams and 3 Area 4 teams;
  • Class 3 (PC Open) – 30 – 1 section; with 3 Area 5 teams and 1 Area 4 team;
  • Class 4        (PC80)  –  78 – 3 sections.

We will run the classes in that order and sections in the following order:

  • Class 1, sections A & B: Area 5 teams, followed by Area 4 teams, Area 5 individuals and Area 4 individuals;
  • Class 1, section C: Pony Club non-Area 4/5 qualifiers and non-PC individuals;
  • Class 2, sections A & B:  Area 5 teams, followed by Area 4 teams, Area 5 individuals and Area 4 individuals;
  • Class 3: Area 5 teams, followed by Area 4 teams, Area 5 individuals and Area 4 individuals and non-PC individuals;
  • Class 4, sections A & B: Pony Club individuals divided by age;
  • Class 4, section C: Non-PC individuals.

Within those divisions, riders will generally be listed geographically, with those travelling furthest going toward the end of the grouping except in Class 4 where the reverse will apply – those travelling furthest being listed toward the beginning of their section.

The draft timetable below will perhaps help you to structure your day.
