It’s mid November, nearing the end of 2020 and all Aussie eventers are so excited to be back in action. I must admit not travelling to Adelaide makes the sit tight radio team very sad!
The Albury International held on 14 and 15th November, the CCI S for 3* and 4* were well supported, noticeably MIA a handful of Queenslanders, Victorians and the MJET team from S.A. The 2*, 1* ran over the weekend, the 80cm and 95cm were run and won on Saturday.
On ground reporter for sit tight was Katie Henderson, aka “HET”. On Friday afternoon the ground jury, Peter Shaw and Carolyn James shared their thoughts after their course walk with sit tight listeners, all agreed that the OC had worked tirelessly to present a great event. Over the weekend Hendo gave us all the goss and even did live video on Sunday, in typical Hendo style! If you missed any of the afternoon wrap ups go to the app, and click EVENT REPLAYS.
