BVRC Annual Quiz Night – Friday 18th January, 7.30 for 8.00pm.  The Lion, Clanville

Our popular annual quiz is for members and guests.  The quiz includes several rounds of questions each on a different topic e.g. General Knowledge, Sport, Entertainment, etc. with equestrian questions in a round or mixed in.

A couple of ‘beer rounds’ are included to allow us to keep topped up with food & drink.  Four or five people can make up a team, or if you come on your own then just turn up and we can find a team for you to join.

A list of devious questions will be devised, guaranteed to get the old grey cells working and provide plenty of amusement.

Come early, order a drink and some food, ready for the quiz to start at 8pm.

If you wish to eat you MUST pre-book with the Lion in advance, by Monday 14th January. Details of menus can be found on http://www.thelionatclanville.co.uk

Quiz cost is £5 members, £6 non members.

BVRC Hot Cross Bun Social Ride, Bulford/Tidworth Road,

Easter Saturday, 20th April

Each year we usually hold a Hot Cross Bun ride across Salisbury Plain for members and guests starting and finishing opposite ‘F’ Range mid-way between Bulford and Tidworth on the road past all the Army ranges.  The turning to the south is on the Bulford side of the Cross Belt (which marks the Hampshire Wiltshire border) off the Tidworth Road/Bulford Road.  Parking is on the open grass by the trees, opposite the entrance to the clearly signposted F Range – watch for the orange BVRC signs to guide you in.

There are usually two groups, one cantering about a bit more than the other walk/trot ride.  There is a stop, two thirds around the ride, in a sheltered covert, for some warming coffee or refreshing juice and as many hot cross buns as you can eat or stuff in your pockets.

Anyone who has been on one of these rides will tell you it is not to be missed with everyone, riders and horses, coming back to the lorries with smiles on their faces!

The ride is free to members and a small charge of £5 to friends (16 years and over), payable on the day.

Meet at 10.15am ready to ride, for a 10.30am departure and we aim to be back at the parking area by 1pm.

This is always a well attended event so please call Lindsay (01264 772388 email: nag[at]bvrc.co.uk) to book your Hot Cross bun(s).

On this ride it is always a good idea to plan for every climate eventuality as it has been known to snow and blow but don’t let that put you off…..

 

BVRC Winter Supper Evening – 

Each year we hold a pre or post Christmas meal for members, spouses and friends.  Curries seem to be the most popular!  2019 location and date TBC.

 

BVRC Xmas Ride, Larkhill Racecourse, late December

Each year around Christmas we usually hold a ride for members and guests (by invitation only) across Salisbury Plain starting and finishing at Larkhill Racecourse.  The date depends on when the Plain stands down from military activities.  What better way to see out the year than a brisk ride on Salisbury Plain with friends.   

There are usually two groups, one cantering about a bit more than the other mostly walk/trot ride. When we return to the lorry park there will be hot drinks and nibbles to consume before you head off home.

Names must be logged with the organiser in advance and as these rides are usually popular you need to register your interest early.

The ride is free to members and a small charge of £5 to friends (16 years and over), payable on the day.

Please arrive in time to be ready for a 10.30am departure and we aim to be back at the parking area about 12.30pm for refreshments.  Emergency contact on the day only is 07377 087121 (no texts).
