Mid-Antrim Point-to-Point on Saturday

Thursday, 27 April 2017

SATURDAY is Mid Antrim Point-To-Point day at McBurney's Farm on Caherty Road, Broughshane (first race 2pm).
Organisers have made it a day out for the whole family.
This year there is a Novelty Dog Show (12.30pm).
Children (who come in free) and adults (who don't!) are encouraged to bring their dogs to the competitions.
There will be rosettes for The Dog Most Like It's Owner, The Dog with the Waggiest Tail, The Cutest Dog, and The Best Behaved Dog.
All dogs must be kept on a lead and under control at all times.
There will be a Bouncy Castle (weather permitting), specialist coffee, catering, bar and entertainment.
Last Spring, after a great deal of work, the newly improved course was given a great many plaudits from the experts and was described as one of the best laid out courses in Ireland.
The INHS wrote to say their committee representative, Mr Colin Magnier, and their officials on duty were "full of praise towards the organisational skills of the committee when staging the Point-to-Point in May 2016", and wanted their compliments passed on to their hard-working committee and officials.
Rest assured the same committee will not be resting on their laurels but will be working as hard as ever to ensure another successful meeting.
The fences have all been completely re-birched and are in great shape for the point-to-point and work is well underway on the course.
