Wow, what a fabulous fun- packed weekend away the Senior FOH 80’ Team had at the BRC National FOH Championships, Aston-le-Walls 2019!
Our team travelled up the day before via various routes and means but we were
all able to park next to each other , which was great. Pat , had the Cornish flag flying high.
On the Saturday we shared the volunteer arena party duties and were able to watch the Sr 100’ class compete. Our team competed in the mid / late afternoon .
SJ course comprised of 10 SJ elements,
One double, skinny , ascending spread & two oxers , uprights & dog leg. The technical element on the SJ course was fence 9a & b, which was a bounce & planks.
XC : 15 elements
The course was a longer route this year , which took you through the back fields and made it more interesting. Xc course included 1x Drop down, 1x a,b,c Step up , drop down & roll top. 2x a,b , 1x water with hanging log. Our results:
Pat Hatch – Double clear
Ellie Robinson- Double clear
Cynthia Robinson- 4fts SJ
Karen Turpin – 4fts SJ
So our team finished on a score of 27 and was placed 3rd .
(Second Team was on 23 & first 20, not too far off!)
We had a Team BBQ Saturday night and Pat opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
We all travelled back on the Sunday
( I had a 2hr delay on the Hard-shoulder of the M5 , tyre blowout , lorry is now called Calamity Jane)
Thank you to our Team captain and Sr team manager Pat Hatch for organising us all , the bubbly went down a treat.
Also thank you to ECRC for funding the entry costs. Senior 80’ team did the club proud.
