Published by Denise Taylord · NICDA Committee Meeting – September 2021Members Update:• Our NICDA Dinner/Supper Evening has been postponed given the current NI Covid infection rate and the onset of winter. It is hoped to hold a social occasion in Spring 2022. • Many hands make light work! We are a small club and a lot of work is done by a few to run our events. Help from members is so welcome! It’s hoped that by helping, they feel actively involved too, e.g. the rapid clearing of the course at Aughnacloy. Spreading the workload means we can all enjoy our sport. • Compiling the results at competitions is an essential role. The Club is urgently appealing for several volunteers willing to be trained to input information onto Mike Watt’s Scoring Spreadsheet, which is widely used by GB Clubs. Richard and Jemma Logan kindly piloted this excellent Excel tool and found it straightforward to use. For more information/see a demonstration please contact Terry Logan via WhatsApp, mobile or email – 07802 750332 / firstname.lastname@example.org• Judging, course building, course designing – the Club wants to encourage and support anyone interested in developing their skills to work towards these roles. Training is available via British Carriage Driving; please contact Pauline Campbell – 07716 237550. • NICDA intends to offer a Very Small Equine (VSE) Class in 2022. More information will follow in due course.• The NICDA Event Calendar for 2022 is in development and it is hoped to run a full season of events.
