Event Newsflash - 16/04/2018

All competition that was due to run at Dalkeith (1) 21st – 22nd April has unfortunately been abandoned following Thursday’s site inspection.

We are very grateful to the Organisers and BE Officials for their efforts but unfortunately the ground is just too wet. With the ground in its current condition, and taking into account the forecast, the preparations on cannot be completed and the footing will not improve in time for the weekend.

Efforts were being made to provide another opportunity to compete at Forgandenny (X) on the same date. The site has been inspected this morning by BE Officials and Organisers and unfortunately, it will not be possible for Forgandenny (X) to go ahead as sadly the ground is just too wet. The Organisers’ endeavours and intentions are to be commended, but the rain over the weekend and more forecast with the ground already wet means that sadly there is no way that the event can run.

Please note also that Frenchfield (1) which is due to run 28th – 29th April is still taking entries and is running the following classes: BE80(T), BE90, BE90 Open, Be100, BE100 Open and BE105. Frenchfield, which is near Penrith, is ahead of schedule with cross country course preparation and is on good, sandy soil. For more information please click here.
