Competitors enjoying today’s terrific area and scenic arena were largely unaware of yet another Plan B. Earlier in the week we discovered that the corner of the race arena field was ankle deep in slurry – even our staging boards would have been hard pushed to bridge this. Many thanks go to Angus McNicol at Invercauld Estates and farmer Neil Fraser who allowed us to move into the adjacent field, as well as moving the cattle towards the Invercauld Arms. They (the cattle) seemed totally relaxed and chilled about the event. Essentially we did a complete mirror of the existing arena layout. Courses were always going to have a remote finish above the arena, so no changes to maps were needed.
