Resignation message from Dave Rogerson

Resignation message from Dave Rogerson

Dear member,

Over the last few weeks I have been carefully considering the totality of my involvement in TREC.

My thoughts considered what I enjoy most beyond competing, time taken up at Affiliated Club level, work as a TD, Organiser and with and on behalf of the International Riders as well as a member of the various TREC groups including the Trustees

I also reflected on impact and effective use of my personal time and considered what in recent times I haven’t done that I also enjoy.

It is therefore with regret that I have to announce that I have retired as the Chair of TREC GB and as a Trustee.

Moving forward I would like to source another horse to compete regularly again at L3, complete projects already started and return to the pleasures of family life and private reading.

Regarding my involvement in TREC I will continue to support WHTG, a group I have been a member of since its inception in 2002, and continue as a committee member to support other members of the committee.

I will continue to enjoy being a TD, Judge, Chef d’Equipe and Chair of the International Riders Working Group and will support and attend related training.

I thank all TREC GB members for their support to the organisation, and as a member I will always continue to support TREC in a positive and friendly way in the years ahead.

Thanks

Dave Rogerson

COVID-19 Guidance 27th November 2020

 

 

England:

 

The Prime Minister has announced that England will come out of the month long Lockdown from Wednesday 2nd December.

 

An updated system of Local Restriction Tiers has been published that detail what is possible within the three tiers.

 

Government guidance that organised outdoor sport can continue in all tiers, means that TREC GB events can resume across England as long as tier specific rules, restrictions and previous TREC GB guidance for England, issued on 24th August 2020, are followed. (Please click here to view)

 

This means that we can continue to run events in the same way as we did before the recent lockdown as long as the travel restrictions specific to each tier are followed.

 

These are detailed below

 

Tier 1 Medium Alert

 

  1. If you live in a tier 1 area, you can travel to a tier 2 area to take part in a TREC GB event as long as the rules for that area are followed. You should avoid travel to an event in a tier 3 area. You can travel through a tier 3 area as part of a longer journey.

 

 

Tier 2 High Alert

 

  1. You can continue to travel to venues to take part in TREC GB events but should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.

 

  1. if you live in a tier 2 area and travel to a tier 1 area to take part in an event you must continue to follow the tier 2 rules when you travel to a tier 1 area. You should avoid travel to an event in a tier 3 area. You can travel through a tier 3 area as part of a longer journey.

 

 

Tier 3 Very High Alert

 

  1. You can continue to travel to venues to take part in TREC GB events but should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.

 

  1. If you live in a tier 3 area, you should avoid travel to events in other parts of the UK, including other tier 3 areas.

 

 

Stay safe, respect the guidance and enjoy TREC competitions again.

Covid-19 Update 2nd November 2020

Covid-19 Update 2nd November 2020

COVID-19 Guidance 2nd November 2020

The Prime Minister has announced that England will be going into a month of Lockdown from Thursday 5th November.

Following this and the introduction, or pending introduction, of National Government COVID-19 ‘Lockdowns’ or Tiered systems for COVID-19 restriction across Great Britain, TREC GB has updated its guidance to Affiliated TREC Clubs, as detailed below.

Affiliated TREC Clubs and Organisers should not accept entries for, or offers of help in running an event, from anyone who lives in an area where mandatory travel restrictions apply. Individuals should be aware of any restrictions that apply both in their own area and areas where events are planned to take place.

No individuals should travel into, out of or within such an area to take part in TREC GB or Affiliated Club events. Travel under such circumstances is considered non-essential.

Some parts of a country may also have specific travel restrictions within an area. Those responsible for organising events should beware of these restrictions and not accept entries or offers of help from individuals living in these areas.

Please remember that everyone must follow their National Government’s Guidelines and that TREC GB will continue to monitor the situation carefully and take account of further advice and guidance as and when it is released.

Please stay safe.

Dave

TREC GB

TREC GB Covid update 13th Sept 2020

TREC GB Covid update 13th Sept 2020

Further to the COVID-19 statement issued on Wednesday 9th September 2020, the Government’s announcement that social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday 14th September and a similar announcement by the Scotland government, TREC GB can now confirm that:

  1. Events including competitions can go ahead as planned as long as all our procedures and protocols are followed.
  2. Organisers must collect competitor, judge and helper details to support the NHS Track and Trace programme and retain the information for three weeks.
  3. Our insurance broker, SEIB, have also confirmed that there is no change to insurance cover because of the latest government restrictions due to come into force tomorrow.
  4. At the present time there are no changes to our guidance related to training and competing in Scotland and Wales.

Please remember that any ‘local restrictions’ that are in force take precedent over the more general national rules.

Continue to enjoy being TREC active again.

TREC GB Covid update 9th Sept 2020

TREC GB Covid update 9th Sept 2020

Following the Government’s announcement that social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday 14th September, TREC GB is awaiting further clarification as to whether or not planned training and competitions can go ahead.

Our insurance broker, SEIB, has been contacted directly and we await their response. The key question is: As an organised sport will our events be exempt?

Early indications are that organised sporting events are not included in this legislation. Hopefully this will be the case as a lot of time and effort has gone into preparing Covid safe activities by our clubs and organisers.

Further announcements from Central Government, large equestrian organisations and SEIB will determine whether or not we can continue at this time.

In the meantime, TREC GB advises that clubs and organisers contact members who have booked to participate in planned activities after 14th September informing them that, we hope everything can continue as planned as we are all very Covid-19 aware and secure in our planning and health and safety protocols

We will of course issue more information as soon as possible.

Dave
