BRC Area 1 Summer Qualifiers

Area 1 Summer Dressage and Show Jumping Qualifiers    (updated 22nd July 2021)

 

UPDATE 22nd July 2021 – BRC HQ has sent through the pre-entries list.

A ballot will take place and notification of successful teams and individuals will be posted on the Area 1 website by Monday 26th July 2021.

 

________________________________________________________

Area 1 Liaison Committee has regrettably had to make the decision not to run any Area Summer Qualifiers in 2021.  Unfortunately no Clubs volunteered to run any of the Qualifiers and only two Clubs responded to confirm that they had members willing to take part which meant that organising events would not be viable.

BRC HQ is offering Area 1 members the opportunity to compete at the national championships by means of a ballot conducted by the Area 1 Liaison Committee.

Clubs will have to pre-enter (and pay appropriate fee) as per usual qualifier and the closing date for pre-entries is 18th July 2021.

BRC HQ Pre-Entry fees:  £32 per Team / £10 per individual.   ALL team members are automatically entered into the individual competition.

BRC HQ Pre-Entry fees website:  https://brc.bhs.org.uk

Area 1 is able to put forward (as appropriate) one team and one individual entry for each of the classes listed below.

Clubs which have confirmed their Area 1 Liaison affiliation (details at foot of page) may submit entries, along with pre-entry fee(s) online at https://brc.bhs.org.uk

The teams and individuals successful in the ballot will be notified by BRC HQ in early August.  They will then enter and pay online as usual prior to attendance at the BRC National Championships at Lincoln on 4th & 5th September 2021.

BRC Area 1 Winter Qualifiers

The Area 1 Liaison Committee met virtually last night and taking into account the low numbers of members interested in taking part in the qualifiers along with the possibility of a local lockdown it was regrettably agreed not to run Area 1 winter qualifiers this year.

Club AGMs – Some Club committees have enquired about whether they need to hold an AGM this year. Please check your Club’s constitution although it is recommended that you hold some form of AGM, perhaps using online video conferencing. Clubs should ensure that their annual accounts are checked by a competent person as usual and committee members are appointed – even if this year’s committee agree to serve another year.

BRC Area 1 AGM will be held towards the end of January 2021 (date tbc) – physical meeting or online to be confirmed in due course.

BRC Area 1 Update

The Area 1 Liaison Committee members have discussed the August event and although lockdown is easing there is still no date for re-starting events during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.  Regrettably we have decided to cancel the August event and plan for the Winter qualifiers in the hope that they will be able to run.

In addition, the Area Liaison Committee is offering a one-off Emergency Support Grant for Clubs which require assistance to pay ongoing running costs.  More details and application form on the website.  Applications must be received by 31st July 2020.

When Clubs are able to offer training please remember that the Area Training Grant of up to £250 is still available (applications must be received by 31st October 2020).
