We are currently planning on running all our future events as we have not been told of any outbreaks on the island. If any competitors have been on the mainland in areas that have been affected we would ask that you do not attend as a precaution. All paid entries can be carried over to future events. If you have any concerns please feel free to contact us. We thank you all for your continued support and will update you should the situation change.
Georgina Leavold is arranging for Ian Thirkell inventor and owner of ArcEquine to come to the Isle of Wight to do an information evening and demonstration on all things ArcEquine and Microcurrent technology. Info at: http://www.arcequine.com/home/ We feel this would be a great insight!! Is this something that people would be interested in? Please let us know so that we can pass feedback on Georgina.
