Some notes from the team at BEDE:
Should you be lucky enough to be in the prize giving this coming weekend there are some specific instructions – Prize Givings are an important part of the event, not only for you as owners and riders, but also for our Sponsors, which without their support, events like this could not take place.
To this end, we understand many of you are busy during the event, so if you are competing in the NATIONAL classes, we will not operate a prize giving. However, the TOP 3 can collect their rosettes from the event office, along with the Winning Owners prize.
For those of you who are joining us in the Warner Leisure 2*, Investec Rock Model Trophy 3*, or Lycetts Grantham Cup 4*, we will require the top 3 riders and winning owners at the Prize Giving. Prize Givings will take place at:
Warner Leisure 2* – 6pm on Friday
Investec Rock Model Trophy 3* – 3pm on Saturday
Lycetts Grantham Cup 4* – 3.30pm on Sunday
If you are unable to attend the prize giving, then please ensure there is a representative is there. If unattended Prize Money will be forfeited
- Owners access to the event is via their BE QR code which will admit all occupants to the event, however each owner will only get 2 badges for the Caunton Clubhouse (per named owner)
- To improve our green credentials we will not be offering single use mugs within the Caunton Clubhouse supported by Equitex, please bring a reusable mug with you, or you will be able to purchase one from the Caunton Clubhouse for £5.
- There will be CCTV within the enclosure on Sat & Sun, complimentary T&C all weekend, heating and a range of seating options with views across the cross country course and main arena.
- Lycetts Drinks – We are once again delighted to welcome Lycetts back as the sponsors of the Grantham Cup at Thoresby. They would like to invite you all for a drink at their on course chalet on Saturday evening. We hope to see many of you there!
- We thank everyone for their support and look forward to seeing everyone at Thoresby.
Best of luck to everyone going, keep dry and enjoy.
