Sandringham Charity Horse Ride @ West Newton Park, Sandringham
Oct 8 @ 09:00 – 16:00

This is a multi-distance charity horse ride – 5/8/10 miles.  There can be up to 200 horses taking part throughout the day. This ride all takes place to the west of the B1440.

Ride start time is 09:15 although it is useful to get on site from around 09:00 to set up equipment. Finish times vary from 14:00 but generally all done by 16:00.

We will use 144.650MHz as the main frequency.  HF can also been used as a secondary net. Monitoring is subject to noise level at control (generators!).

Control location will be the other side of the small tree copse due to change in use of gates used for ride start.
