There is non scoring in all events so everyone is guaranteed three events on the day plus lots of U11 races. All girls are welcome – please tell us by Wed that you are coming on the coach and how many seats you need The matches are always very popular and well-contested.

Sat 30th May Youth Development League Match 2 Bracknell
U13/15 boys and girls starts 11.00 am.
It was a very competitive first match and despite some excellent performances we fell away to finish fifth so we need a really big team effort to make sure we come in the first two in this match Please can everyone make sure they are available for this match – especially field eventers who were unavailable in match 1 – with out strongest team we can surely get into the top two but we cant afford another result like at Crawley.
We will be arranging coach travel – details to follow.
