Event Cancelled

 

Due to the current lockdown in Southeast Queensland and the continued uncertainty relating to the current outbreak of COVID 19, Zone 1 has regrettably decided to cancel the Aitkens Showjumping Championships that were to be held on Sunday 15th August.

There were a number of factors that have led to this decision.  Primarily it was the health and well being of our members – especially the younger ones who now seem to be more susceptible to the virus than previously.

In addition, with the two weekends prior to the event being locked down, there was insufficient time for the host club to properly prepare for the occasion.

We truly regret having to make this decision, but believe it is the only rational decision that could be made in the current circumstances.

We would like to thank everyone who nominated or agreed to officiate at the event along with our great sponsors Aitken’s Saddlery for their continued support.

On a practical matter, Refunds to all Nominees will be processed by the end of the week.  Please allow a few days for the refunds to appear on your bank statement.
