Tutbury Training and ODE

Unfortunately, due to the poor entry, we have been forced to cancel the ODE on the Sunday. As I know you are aware, it takes a huge amount of preparation between now and the event, and a small army of helpers to allow any event to run. These people give their time willingly and for free, the club don't feel it it a viable option to ask that all to be done for what could be less than a dozen competitors. I know this will disappoint some of you planning to come, and we are very sorry to have to cancel believe me. We also have to keep the club finances in mind, even one competitor calls for the correct level of paramedic cover, toilets, ground hire etc etc. 
Please, if you have strong feelings about ANY event talk to one of the committee. If we can alter anything to improve your experience we are willing to listen, sometimes an organisers perspective is not the same as a competitors one! We cannot run without competitors nor without helpers, this event produces beutiful obstacles, a fantastic atmosphere and one of the best dressage arenas available to us, you know the phrase...use it or lose it! 

Saturdays' training program is going ahead as planned, there will now be a couple of spaces available. Please contact Lesley asap if you would like to be added. 

The facilities at Tutbury are always available to hire, pre book via Paul Hart on 07779 922506 if you wish to visit. On the Sunday after the training Paul has said he will leave a cones course up ready, flag the permanent obstacle & ensure the dressage arena is pristine so if anyone planning to do the one day event wishes to make use of these superb facilities please book direct via Paul.

MC next looks forward to welcoming you all to the Belvoir Castle event.
