The Gorrick Guys write…
“Having given careful consideration to the weather forecast for the coming week, it has been decided that Gorrick will CANCEL the first round of the Saddle Skedaddle Spring Series which was to be held next Sunday 17 January 2010 at Frith Hill, Deepcut. It was felt that as milder weather is not expected to arrive until Friday, there would be insufficient time for the lying snow to clear from the course and car park, and that it was better for all concerned to make the decision now, rather than at the end of the week. We very much regret the inconvenience this may cause.
“We have decided to replace this event with an additional Spring Series Round 6 to be held on Sunday 16 May 2010 at Frith Hill, Deepcut and this will become the final round of the series. Final Series prizes and awards will be presented at this round, not at Round 5.
“All entries received to date for the Spring Series Round 1 will be automatically transferred to the new Round 6. If any riders wish to transfer their entry to a different round, or receive a refund, they should e mail us in good time at firstname.lastname@example.org stating what they want to do. Otherwise you don’t need to do anything if you are happy to race in Round 6.
“Apologies again for what has been a very difficult decision. Of course if you want your Gorrick fix before then, either to start your training or simply to work off that Christmas cheer then we will be running the 3rd round of the Brass Monkey Enduro Series on Sunday 31st January at Parkhurst Hill, Tweseldown, Hants.
