    After speaking to Terry Davies, I believe that the Welsh Grand National is on the August Bank Holiday Monday as it was last year. (Aug 27th)

    Hi Martin

    East Sussex are unable to use their ground at the moment - so the venue has been moved to Abbotts Ann.

    I heard from Tom Bawden at Stanborough.  He tells me that their Bluebell Open on 13th May is off.

    I wish someone would keep these pages up-to-date

    Hi Rob

    Not sure if you meant your last posting to be quite so blunt?  :confused:

    Judy and Nigel update the board at every opportunity, but they can only update it if given the information in the first place.  It's the first I've heard of Stanborough being cancelled, so maybe they haven't heard either?  I think most people realise that there won't be any opens for a while as most are not able to use their grounds.  Hopefully with the F&M now under control (according to the government ;) ), we will soon be able to recommence racing. :smile:

    Um... er... yes, Rob. Thank you for your information. I have updated the list again. June is right though, I can only put on what I know about and I had not heard about Stanborough. I don't think this cancellation has been officially announced yet has it?

    This might be the time to remind everyone that this list of Open dates is unofficial. I am pretty sure it is correct but it is only what I have been told and I would not like to be held responsible if I have been given wrong information at any time so please check with club secretaries.

    Anyone who knows of any changes to the schedule is welcome to post it here and I will update the list for you.
