Third All-Ireland Championships, Caledon 19/20th August, 2017
Over 50 competitors from Scotland, Cumbria, England and North and South of Ireland congregated at the beautiful Calendon estate, courtesy of the Earl and Countess of Caledon over the weekend of 19/20th August. What a setting and what an event, NICDA did us all proud, the compliments we have received from our visitors from across the water and from down South have all sung our praises and grateful thanks must be extended to Billy McCombe and Alwyn Morrison and team for the excellent course and real old-fashioned solid obstacles.
Even George Bowman was impressed with the situation and the whole setup of Caledon and hopes to come over again in two years time! Some of the competitors, particularly the less experienced found the marathon course to be testing, particularly in section A due to the recent wet weather and there were some very tired animals coming back to the lorries! Considering this was our first time at this new venue, the majority of organisation went very well, certainly there are a few issues which the committee will address at the debriefing meeting but overall everyone found the event to be enjoyable and certainly worthy of the title, the All-Ireland Championships.

Well Done to everyone who contributed to make this one of the most memorable events in our 40 year history!!

Glad to report that the total monies raised at the Barn Dance in aid of our Caledon event was £1,742.96!!!! Out of this total is £700 brought in from the Night at the Races so thanks to all the sponsors and punters placing their bets on their fancied fillies (both two and four legged! This money will be used to help with the costs of running Caledon, which is shaping up to be an extra-special event with entries already received from GB competitors including Horse Teams, Advanced Horse Pairs and Intermediate classes plus potential para-driving competitors. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the Evening such a success!!”

 

On behalf of all members of NIDCA, can I express our sincere thanks to the Lyons family for their great hospitality in letting us use Jeffrey’s barn for our Country & Western Night. It was a brilliant night from the decorations in the barn, the tasty Cowboy supper served by Sara & Brian, the enjoyable and toe tapping music, the excellent entertainment provided by the Night at the  Races – with a Twist. Overall, a fabulous night made extra special by the efforts put in by so many. To see nearly 100 friends and families enjoying themselves as well as raising money for our Caledon event was simply fantastic.  Well Done everyone.  What a year this is going to be for NICDA!!!!!
Regards Berry (Club Secretary)
