Points and Performance Awards
Points Scheme for BDS Wales members at BDS Events in Wales
**** DONT FORGET TO SUBMIT YOUR CARDS TO
ANTHEA BY NOV 6TH, EARLY ENTRY APPRECIATED****
The aim of the scheme is
1. To encourage the participation of BDS Wales members in BDS Wales activities.
2. To recognise the achievement of the BDS Wales members who participate and support BDS Wales events whether by taking a turnout, grooming for a turnout or by helping to run the event.
The points scheme would normally be run over a year but for 2017 will run from April 1st to October 31st. It is open to all BDS members who reside in Wales and belong to a Welsh BDS Area. Completed cards should be sent in to the BDS Wales Secretary by November 6th 2017.
There are three categories with three levels to achieve. Please make sure that you use a separate card for each category type below:
Whip: Bronze, Silver and Gold
Groom: Bronze, Silver and Gold
Supporter: Bronze, Silver and Gold
Bronze = 50 points – Silver = 75 points – Gold = 100 points
There will be commemorative awards for all members who participate, which will be presented at the BDS Wales AGM in November.
Each member may submit a card for each section. However please note that only one card can be used per event. E.g if attending a Trec event as the Groom, you may not submit points in either the Whip or Supporter roles.
All events attended must be logged on the participant’s card and signed by the event organiser or judge. Please note that the same card is used regardless of what turnout is being driven. Grooms should use their own card and state the combination of driver and horse at each activity to be eligible for their own points.
Only three competitive results can be logged for one event, it is up to the member to choose the best three if achieving more than three results at an event.
Cards will not be accepted if all details asked for are not recorded.
Any complaints should be sent in writing in the first instance to the BDS Wales Secretary. Please refer to the BDS complaints policy and procedure as noted on the BDS Wales website. www.bdswales.org
