Event Newsflash - 05/04/2018

All competition that was due to run at Bovington (1) 14th-15th April has been abandoned.
We are very grateful to the Organisers and BE Officials who have made huge efforts to run the event. However, following this morning’s site inspection, the decision has been made to abandon the event as the ground is just too wet to complete the necessary preparations.
