Zetland & Cleveland Point to Point.
Even though it was held behind closed doors for participants only, there was a
good atmosphere and nearly 60 runners. Stuart Gibbon had done a brilliant job watering the course to provide good going with horses coming from Scotland, the north west area and the midlands.
The lay out was slightl different with everything being organised below the wall, paddock, horsesbox parking etc,. No tents,trailers for the decs team,scales, and secretary. Theway forward for next year! More importantly, It also marked the end of an era as Susan Town who has been the secretary for 21years (1995 -21). A terrific stint for which the Zetland point to Point Hunt Committee and the Hunt are extremely grateful. A great organiser, Rain or shine Susan was always there with a smile to ensure all ran smoothly.
Editors note: The Darlington & Stockton Times ran an excellent preview and a full report on the event.
