You will also be able to view your personal Rider Number and the Classes you have qualified for. If you think we have put you in the wrong
class, please enter yourself in the right one, but, if you do this, it would help us if you would just make a note on the back of the entry form
explaining what you have done and why.

If we need to clarify anything we will contact you by phone or preferably e-mail.


As in previous years, these will be available to be collected from the Secretary on the day. If you would like yours sooner, then please send a

Please read the schedule carefully, where we have indicated approximate times for the start of these classes, these have been based on
entries received in previous years. However, times may change either before or on the day and the organisers will not be held responsible for
any classes missed.

Judges and Ring Stewards will not allow any competitors to enter the ring or leave the ring once a Class has commenced being
judged, so please do not ask as we do not wish to offend.
