Change is coming - The Mid & North Wales Group website has a new master. I can't tell you who it is yet, but I can tell you that this will be the last time that I update these pages, before handing the keys to my successor. Whatever they have planned for you will, I'm sure, be fantastic. I would like to sign off by wishing you all a successful 2010 season, and thanking the 11593 visitors who took the time to read the pages of this site.

2010 Ride Calender - National and Social ride calenders for the coming season have been added to the website, you can find them here. For a more exhaustive list of EGB National rides in 2010, click here.

Pedalling Britain - former endurance rider and webmaster of this site Martin Theodorou is planning to cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats, to raise money for the Alzheimers ResearcH trust and the Make A Wish foundation. He will cycle a journey of over 1000 miles in 20 days. To find out more, or to sponsor Martin, please click here, or visit www.pedallingbritain.co.uk

Yellow Ride Cards -to Heather Davies by the 30th October 2009 (30/10/2009) if you want to be considered for group trophies and awards. Heather's contact details are available here.

Saintwestwell Margam Park results - The results of our first national ride of 2009 are available here. The results service has been enhanced for 2009 with all results appearing in an easy to read tabulated form, and showing the points scored by each competitor - this innovation takes the results service beyond that provided by the main society website, making this one the results service to use!

Guided Ride - A guided ride will be organised for the 17th October 2009, starting at 10am, and lasting approximately 3.5 hours. Contact Jackie Gilmore on (01591) 610371 for more details.

Red Menu Bar! - In possibly the most trivial headline ever to appear on this website, the big news is that the menu bar at the top of the page is now red, bringing the group website's colour scheme inline with that of the main society website. Oh, and the homepage has been redesigned too, as you can probably see!

Gallery Updated - 5 new images have been uploaded to the gallery page of the website, featuring Amy Theodorou competing in the 81km FEI 1* YR class at Haywood Oaks earlier in 2009 - see them here.

Make the News - We want to hear from you, so, if you want to appear on the website, send us your Endurance - or general horse related - news and stories, and we'll do our best to publish them. To do this, please email your stories to havockxyb@btinternet.com, or send them to me by using the contact the webmaster form on this site's contact details page. Photographs would be greatly appreciated to accompany your stories, and these will feature both in your article and also in our Image Gallery.*

But that's not the only way you can contribute to 'make the news,' you can now also do so by video. Simply upload your video to www.youtube.com, email me (address as above) a link to your video, and from there I can embedd it into this site.

Sounds exciting, and an excellent way to get yourself noticed, particularly if you are looking for sponsorship, and also to let other memebrs of the group know what you and your horse(s) have been up to. The first 'make the news' feature will appear on the site shortly after it arrives, and certainly no later than the week after Haywood Oaks, where I will be recording a video diary of my antics as a first time FEI level crew!
