This weekend saw a fantastic education course taught by @baldvingudlaugsson and enjoyed by riders and the Icelandic ambassador/ several more VIPs! Here’s a perfect rundown from IHSGB member @thaliacolyer …
“What a fantastic IHSGB Education hub clinic we had this weekend. 😁
I had a lovely Friday evening catch up with Charlie, Mic and Issy and then all of us travelled together to Pete’s early on Saturday morning to help set up ready for the dignitaries. I enjoyed watching a couple of the later lessons on the Saturday once the dignitaries had gone and the clearing away done. Then the 4 of us left for a quick sleep/ drink/ chill/ shower before heading out for a raucous evening at Junction 28 where our group of 15 were the last to leave! I’m so glad Richard and Linda came for this as for many of us, it’ll be the last time we see them before their exciting move to Denmark. 😎
Today I was blessed with being able to watch some of the earlier lessons after packing away my tables and chairs into the car and then helping to pack up the IHSGB branded promo gear before heading for home early afternoon just as the winds were starting to pick up.
Thank you to Peter Heathcote and Catherine for once again for generously hosting a clinic at their home, to Baddi for travelling from Iceland to teach us, to all those who pitched in to help with all the work required to make things run smoothly, and to the IHSGB for subsidising it.
I am so lucky to live within 3 hours of reaching so many events, but these are only possible because there are enough participants to make things viable and there are enough volunteers who are prepared to invest their time to cover the work required to run them.
Winter is a great time for people to think ahead about potential venues and to gauge if there would be enough participants to run an event. I’d love to see more happening in other areas next year so would urge people to start thinking now about what is possible in 2024. If you’ve not run an event before, or are unsure of what practical and financial help is available then get in touch with the IHSGB and make things happen 😉”
We love these clinics! 🙌🏻
