This year ERA (the Event Riders Association) is not running its own Ball, but was keen to keep the popular ERA/Shearwater Awards going, so is very pleased that a separate group of Organisers stepped in to run The End of Season Event, which will feature the presentation of some of the BE Awards as well as the ERA/Shearwater Awards.
ERA will be asking for Nominations and Votes in various categories, including an exciting new one, on social media very soon, to decide the winners of the 2014 Awards.
“The End of Season Event” has its own website HERE, which contains all the details you need. It is being held at Newbury Rugby Club on Friday 21st November.
To try to prevent last year’s delay in buying tickets and then huge rush at the end (meaning quite a few people were disappointed), there is a generous earlybird discount: tickets, if purchased before 10 October, cost £75, or £900 for a table of 12.
There is even the chance to take your horsebox and park it in the carpark as overnight accommodation (must be pre-booked), and the added attraction of the Eventers vs Vets Rugby Match the next morning.
Last year’s Ball was a truly memorable night, and I’m sure this one will be fantastic too, so please think about organising a table, and visit the website for ticket payment details.
If you fancy going and don’t have a full table, please let me know below, because I’m getting up a table or two, and the more, the merrier.
