Event Newsflash - 25/09/2017

Ballot date update
Let's start with the good news. All Regional Final entrants and all Saturday entrants have been accepted. I will be re-opening entries in the BE100RF and BE90RF classes but please be aware that you will be joining the Wait List and will have to wait for a space.

We will be balloting heavily on the Sunday as we received 363 entries but we can only run 258 competitors. We have received permission to run as many BE90 and BE80 entries as possible, as the BE100 competitors have other options.

The whole of the BE100 Sunday class will be balloted. If you would like to switch to the Saturday, please contact the Entries Secretary by Wednesday 6pm. If I don't hear from you by then, your entry fee will be refunded. If you want your refund sooner than this, perhaps to fund an entry into Aldon Horse Trials (ballot date on Thursday), just email me.

We will also be balloting about 35 Training Pass entries from the BE80(T) class. This ballot list will be published on Tuesday at 6pm (sorry it can't be sooner, but it takes a bit of time to check all your membership details and work out the ballot).

All BE90RF entries have been accepted. The vast majority of BE90 and BE90 Open entries have been accepted and the remainder will be wait-listed.

The sections lists and wait-lists will be published as soon as I can. It is now too late to add a ballot number, change class to avoid the ballot or to ask for late times. All requests for late times will be ignored and times will be allocated on the basis of travel time using the rider's postcode - sorry but more than half have asked to be at the end of the section. Do let me know if you are stabling locally and want early times.
