TETRATHLON
Dear All,
 
Firstly many congratulations to our very successful competitors at the New Forest Tetrathlon last weekend. Lots of great performances and prizes.
 
The Winter Accumulator finished last weekend, many congratulations to our prize winners for those who completed 4 Triathlons over the winter and were placed.  Junior boys: Ben Burgess 1st, Alex Wilson 3rd.  Mini boys: Thomas Whiting 2nd.  Tadpoles: Alice Whiting 3rd.   Well done to them all and to everyone who competed at the Triathlons.
 
RA Tetrathlon Sunday 16th June: hopefully you have all received the RA Tetrathlon schedule.  I will be finalising entries just after 21st May, so I’ll be in touch re classes & payments etc.
 
RA drawstring bags:  these are for RA members who have completed their first Tetrathlon or Triathlon, and shown commitment to training.  This is a reward and part of being in the RA Tetrathlon team.  Also very useful when they leave their kit around!  William B and Freya will be presented after 21st May.  Please let me know if there is anyone else who hasn’t received a bag yet, but who has earned it!

Dear All,
 
Our Tetrathlon at Dene Farm is aimed at younger members and is suitable for members to “have a go” if they are new to Tetrathlon or as a “one off” if members are busy with other disciplines.
 
The 7 & under class, where competitors throw bean bags is a great way to start.  The pool at Dene Farm now has solar heating, the running is not far and competitors may be lead on the XC.  For all ages, competitors can jump a lower XC course if they wish (see the schedule).
 
Tetrathlon involves all members of the family (including the less horsey ones) and is very sociable too!  There are Triathlon classes (no riding).  We’re keen see many RA members compete so if you’re new to Tetrathlon please get in touch.  For members 8 yrs & over who haven’t done any shooting or who would rather not, just give me a ring.  Please see the schedule with all the details and we look forward to even more RA members enjoying Tet together.
 
 
 
Best wishes,

FITNESS, FUN & FRIENDSHIP …..

Henry has had such fun doing the tri and tetrathlon this year. He has come a long way and is enjoying his new pony.

The first is ready for the off at the Hursley Tet and the other two are the last fence and finishing smile at the Poole and District (first time XC on new pony). The smile says it all!
