The Agenda got under way and the highlight was the Chairperson’s report, which was a summary of the year gone.
This served to remind members of the many and varied Leinster TREC activities which had taken place during 2013. At the recent TREC Ireland AGM, it was pointed out that Leinster TREC had held the most activities (at 20) of any region throughout Ireland during this year and this included a PTV(Obstacle)/CoP League, POR (Orienteering) League, a One Day (3-phase) Event, Obstacle/CoP Training days, Practice Days, Try TREC days and Orienteering Skills practice sessions.
The Chairperson also reminded members of the many excellent results and top placings achieved by Leinster TREC members at National Competitions throughout Ireland over the year and also that several members had
represented Ireland in British and European competitions during 2013.
Sincerest thanks went out to all the members and volunteers plus landowners and yard proprietors, who had helped throughout the year to make the running of competitions and other activities such a success for everyone.
There followed the distribution of Assistant Judges certificates, a selection of prizes for the POR League (see Results) and some Special Awards to certain deserving people. For a full report and listing, open the document below. And then......
After the Meeting, a Fun Treasure Hunt planned and organised by Catherine Bartley, and with the kind co-operation of the Proprietors, took place throughout the lands of Wallaby Woods. Groups of 4 adults and children
set off excitedly, answer sheets in hand, to hunt down the clues and (try to) answer the quiz questions. It is unclear who was the most puzzled during all this activity – animals or humans! But the winners with the most correct answers in the fastest time were the Kiddies Group! Well done to them!
Everyone then enjoyed soup and sandwiches in the lovely cafeteria in Wallaby Woods – a fitting end to a most enjoyable non-horsey day!
