Hopetoun International Driving Trials
24-27 May 2018
Stewards still needed!
You will be made really welcome!
This is an excellent chance for new or potential drivers to be alongside 'old hands' and to be introduced to our sport in all its aspects.
Many stewards are needed, particularly on Saturday for the marathon phase.
Please come to help if you can. No previous experience is necessary - we will match you to an appropriate role and can guarantee that you will be made very welcome (even if we can't guarantee the weather...).
Thursday 24th May (RDA competition)
Friday 25th May (Dressage)
Saturday 26th May (Marathon)
Sunday 27th May (Obstacle Cone Driving)
If you are able to help, even for part of a day, on any of the above days, please get in touch with Alison Morris - the Hopetoun Stewards' Convenor.
Telephone: 0131 657 2743
Mike Brown, Dunbog Organiser writes: - Due to adverse ground conditions the event has been rescheduled from Sunday the 22nd of April until the new date of Sunday 6th May. Nothing has changed in the schedule apart from the date. The entries already received will automatically be entered into the new date. If this does not suit some already entered competitors then we will give a full refund provided that we know of your wish.
There is a now a clash of dates with the Fun Day being held at Audrey Barron’s at West Newton and Dunbog, Unfortunately one or two members were hoping to do both events but both the organisers have agreed to carry all the entries and cheques over to the re-scheduled events and destroy any cheques of those unable to attend now.
If you have entered both please ensure that you let both Audrey and Mike know as to which one, if any, you plan to attend.
A CONTEMPORARY CARRIAGE DRIVING EVENT
1st, 2nd and 3rd JUNE 2018
The Carriage Driving Challenge is an introductory club level competition for drivers with modern vehicles that will run in conjunction with the Attelage de Tradition which is restricted to traditional type vehicles.
Like the Attelage de Tradition, the object of the Carriage Driving Competition is to promote and encourage best practise traditional carriage driving including Coachman style rein handling whilst using modern carriages. This competition follows the format of the Association d’Attelage de Tradition (AIAT). All driving competitors will be expected to undertake and complete the three phases of the competition: Presentation, Road Drive with Difficulties and Cone Driving. The event is popular for its friendly and fair sportsmanship. The event is heavily scrutineered and supported with stewards and Marshalls who are on hand to assist the smooth running of the competition.
Organisers of the Glamis Attelage are delighted that the BDS, SCDA and individual SCDA members are sponsoring this event, and appreciate the co-operation between the BDS and SCDA in making this event a success.
