2018 Club Awards presented at AGM – 13th November, 2018

Over 40 club members and friends turned out to support the ECRC AGM and to hear the Chair’s round-up of the year’s activities, including shows (everything from Eventer SJ, through the Pentilly Estate Fun Ride, to an indoor Showing Show); the Pontispool Training Camp; summer series of SJ and dressage at Lower Tokenbury; regular clinics throughout the year; and great success at the area qualifiers and national championships.  Special mention went to the great contribution made by volunteers throughout 2018 – none of the club events can take part without a lot of volunteer support and this year members and friends contributed 211 hours of help (this in addition to the work done by committee members) – amazing support for the club – THANK YOU!  The club committed to continuing to offer a good mixture of training and club events through 2019 and set the membership fee for 2019 at £25.  (draft minutes will be uploaded to the Downloads tab of this site in due course).
