gurston down.trailers and animals

Please read the supplementary regulations for the July, August and September meetings when they come on-line.

Trailers:
Trailers must not be parked in the Camping Area. Flat ground in the camping area is at a premium. A map has been attached for your information.

Camper and Tents:
After the rather chaotic camping area at the May meeting we have reviewed camping area Fire Safety. When you park your camper or set-up your tent, please make sure there is enough access for the Fire Service to get around our site. This is for your own safety!
Camping Fees are required to be paid at Sign-On. We donate all of the camping fees to the local village of Broad Chalke!
Dogs (and other animals):
As you probably know, Gurston Down has one of the best shoots in the country. During the later part of the year, birds are let out into the area around the hill. As a consequence we have been required to make the following restrictions:
Dogs: July Event: Dogs are permitted in the camping area ONLY, they must be kept on the lead at all times.
August and September Events dogs are NOT Permitted.
During last season our Landlord asked a dog owner to keep their dog under control in an open area near some of the areas where the birds are and was greeted with a less than polite response. A total ban was almost imposed but we managed to negotitate these arrangements!

Dogs.

We really enjoyed last weekends event, well organised superb helpful Marshals, slick organisation despite the dreadful weather etc. So sorry we won't be able to come to any other events at Gurston now if we can't bring our well behaved family pet with us. This seems strange when the owners own hounds are running around the paddock when the event is being run. Surly the person responsible for the poor behaviour should be the person being punished not a blanket ban for all the people who never have caused a problem and who control their pets responsibly, were really disappointed over this decision.

Mike, I think you will find its just the August and September meetings - ahead of the pheasant shooting season. I believe it won't affect meetings from April to July next year - so dogs (and you!) can still come to them.

Gurston.

Andy.
We missed you and Shiela this weekend, spoke to Simon and he explained how you decided not to come across, weather was desperate on Friday and rained on and off across the weekend. Still a great weekends racing though, I thought the organisation and the Marshalls were spot on even in the bad weather. Hopefully see you both before too long. M&D.

Really disappointed not to make it. Just one of those things. See you at Shelsley. Gurston was clearly up to its usual standards, weather notwithstanding! My favourite hill��
