Event Newsflash - 19/04/2018

Unfortunately, the ground has been so wet that preparations for the event have not been possible. Access to the site has now allowed the BE Official to assess the situation and whilst the portable fences have arrived, it is still too wet to enable work on course to commence. With the ground in its current condition, and despite the improved forecast, this therefore means that the amount of work necessary before opening the course for inspection on Monday is just not achievable. We are very grateful to the Organisers, BE Officials and Course Builders for their efforts but the decision has very sadly been made that the event cannot go ahead. We are however very pleased to announce an alternative opportunity for competitors at Aston Le Walls (XX) on 24th-25th April. The site has been inspected by BE Officials this afternoon and everything is on schedule. The event will host the following classes: BE90, BE90 Open, BE100, BE100 Open, Novice and Open Novice and the cross country courses will be open for walking from 5.00pm Monday 23rd April. Entries will be taken on a first come first served basis through BDWP and will open as soon as possible.

Event Status - Cancelled

Regrettably all competition that was due to run at Whitfield 24th-25th April has been abandoned.
