Its taken nearly 12 months, but we have done it, the organisers of the Zenoah Challenge Cup can confirm that they have sourced an alternative equestrian centre in the Harrogate area to host our event in 2019 and hopefully beyond too. We have today paid the deposit so get the 8,9 and 10th February in your event calendars.
Booking in will open on Friday 5th October and we will be limiting numbers to 121 attendees across the classes. Like previous years a non refundable deposit will be required to reserve your place at this popular event.
Please keep visiting our website, facebook page for the latest news as we update the sites to reflect our new location.
Along with having a main arena we will be hiring a second for pitting which has a small walk way from one to the other, the centre has plenty of parking, camping space, café, function roombar area and a 13 room b&b which the event has rented for the weekend. Further details will be released as we progress.
The Zenoah challenge cup organisers wish to thank the Spring House group and the Birtwistle family for welcoming us to the Harrogate riding and language centre.
For those who attended previous events will be aware that Norton heath was an active centre around our meeting and our new venue will be no different, they have an active livery yard and we ask that you respect this and likewise the place is kept tidy with rubbish placed in the owners skip as required.
BRCA LSOR Chairman
Firstly the organisers of this years event would like to thank all those who attended for a cracking weekend with some good racing on the track and interactions in the evenings too.
We have spoken to Bob and we are booked in for our seventh season from the 9th to the 11th of February next year, so get the dates in your calendars now.
Booking in will open early October for those who want to meet up once again in Essex in sunny February.
The organisers of the 2017 Zenoah Challenge Cup can confirm that today they visited Norton Heath Equestrians Centre and they are once again looking forward to our visit and the venue rental has been paid.
Talking to the owner if our attendees wish for venue to lay on the ability for evening meals, food in the bar or entertainmentparty then please post and we will pass on your requests.
Likewise for those who have previously participated and commented on the PA system we are pleased to announce that we have purchased a 1200W system (600W per speaker) which should be loud enough to be heard over the cars once testing has been performed.
We can also confirm that Husqvarna ZENOAH Co.,Ltd will once again be supporting the event with there normal generosity and it is anticipated that Mr Kazunori, of the Special Customer sales group will be in attendance.
We thank Zenoah once again for their continued support.
