Varsity 8th March 2013
The Sheffield University Equestrian Club will be taking part in Varsity for the first time in 5 years, so come down to support us! It will be taking place on the 8TH MARCH at Parklands Equestrian.
There will be two parts to Varsity – dressage and show jumping. Dressage will take place in the morning with a FREE lunch (with copious amounts of black and gold cakes on offer) around midday with show jumping and results in the afternoon.
Parklands is around a 15 minute drive from Uni and we have many drivers from the club going. We also have a coach booked to pick up at Bar One at 10:45 on Friday, it's just £3 for a return journey on then coach so just give your money to Katy Thomson who will be at Bar One on Friday.
If you would like to go earlier then there are a number of people driving who have posted on the Facebook event, please give them £3 for petrol.
You are more than welcome to come for parts of the day, but make sure you get involved and put on your black and gold polos to support Uni (at least come for the free lunch and cake)!
Let us know if you definitely want to come by emailing email@example.com or attend and post on the Facebook event, so we can organise transport and have an idea how many people will be coming.
We will also be going to The Beehive for a meal and then on to Space afterwards for post-varsity celebrations. Emails have been sent in regard to the social so reply soon to guarantee a place at the meal.
