The 2014 Class Winners list

Hey everyone, it’s finally here, that time where you get to see how your hard work paid off and what silverware you got (for legal purposes, trophies are not actually silver).

Download the class winners list by clicking the below link:

Points 2014 Overall Class Winners List

So let me explain for those of you who don’t know… We give out trophies 1st – 4th place overall in EVERY class. Class winners will receive a perpetual trophy (you need to bring it back next year), a championship rosette with ‘Champion’ printed down the tails, and a trophy to keep. 2nd – 4th place gets a trophy to keep.

Champions – If you want to personalise your rosette, you can have anything you like printed down the tail, provided it fits and remember to keep it clean, we are a family club… This will cost you a £5 note.

Other places – You too can have a rosette, personalised to your desires… It will be a different colour to the Champion rosette. Or maybe you want a brother or sister, favourite groom or friend to have a rosette? Same goes. Price for this is £10, and did I mention how big and fabulous these rosettes are? You will love them.

Anyone can order a sash to go with their placing too… £12 is the price, they are gorgeous quality and you get 3 lines of printing on them. Keep it clean, remember!

Link to the order form below, simply print, fill in and send with your payment to the address on the form:

Rosette Sash Order Form 2014 (1)

There are also special trophies on the night for overall winners of rings, combination points, junior, senior and all sorts, but these are secret until the night. You’ll just have to wait…

So now you need somewhere to pick these prizes up… Well, it’s Saturday 22nd November at Runcorn Holiday Inn and the theme is ‘A Night at the Movies’, so yes, it’s fancy dress! There will be a buffet, disco, and a chance to catch up with friends and maybe get a photo with some familiar faces…

So the ticket order form is below, please note all tickets must be pre-booked.

Right, get those costumes sorted and we will see you there!

BLUE CHIP SHOWING CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE NEARLY HERE!

Well, there’s a week to go to the first of the Blue Chip North West Showing Championships – the In Hand day!!

We’re getting a lot of panicked telephone calls and texts about last minute entries, lost qualifiers, etc. DON’T WORRY! We will accept entries on the day and if you have lost your qualifier, e-mail us stating the show you qualified at and we’ll e-mail you a qualifier to complete and bring along! We will accept pre-entries with Monday’s posting date, so take advantage of the cheaper class rates!

Entries are still coming in in steady numbers, so we will update the competitor list as many times as we can over the next few days. Latest version is attached.

We’ve also attached details of the class entry numbers so you can work out when your class may start. Please note that these are current pre-entry numbers, they will increase from weekend postal entries and we did get a lot of entries on the day last year. We want to give out all our wonderful rosettes and sashes and medals, so fill those classes up!!

Thank you for all your support. It is so wonderful to see people from all over the North West coming to these championships, we really want you to enjoy yourselves and meet the backbone of all the riding clubs that provide so much enjoyment to so many people!!

See you soon!!
