We again had a very large number of entries, similar to last year, with 272 dressage tests performed, 271 show jump rounds and 256 riders going Cross Country and some difficult conditions in the morning due to the weather. However, we still managed to finish within about 30 minutes of planned time. For that I am grateful to all of you, the competitors, and to our army of volunteers. You were also most generous with your donations to the NW Air Ambulance, over £300 raised, and I am sure we will be adding to that substantially once all the accounts are finalised.

My brother, Rufus, was also competing at Windsor, in the NSEA Show Jumping with Lola, so it was going to be a busy weekend. It took 6 ½ hrs to get there and we’d been told all the lorries were being towed on and off Windsor Park due to torrential rain.

Twenty-one Area 5 competitors qualified to attend the National Triathlon Competition 2019, held in Milton Keynes.
Places are not easy to achieve with many travelling the length and breadth of the country to try to gain a place.
Area 5 produced some fantastic individual and team results throughout the day.
Aberconwy hosted the Area 5 Quiz on March 17th in Eglwysbach village hall. It was a very exciting afternoon as the points were so close. Running totals were given out after every few rounds which added to the atmosphere. Thank you to Aberconwy Committee and to the scorers who produced the final results very quickly inspite of having to do a recount because the points were so close.
