2020 COVID-19 Changes


What a year of challenges we have all faced, with this Upper Hunter Team Penning is hopping to make some realistic and beneficial changes to the running of the remainder of our 2020 season.



As a committee we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 point score, this decision was not made with a light heart and may factors played a part in this decision.


With this decision also came the voted decision that our 2019 open team point score winners will have the opportunity to attend Sydney Royal again in the 2021 season.


Since the 2019 AGM there has been a lot of discussion around the adding of a 4th division to Upper Hunter Team Penning, as a committee we have made the decision to use the remainder of the 2020 season being out of point score in a wisely manner and TRIAL this idea. So we now have for the remainder of the 2020 season adding in a "NOVICE" division. This division will allow some of our novice and new to the sport members  the opportunity to shine in a division of their own, more prizes to hand out over the coming months and a lot of fun to be had.


As the 2020 season draws near the end and the club have made the decision whether to carry this division onto the 2021 season, this is when we will post the drafted rule booklet for all to view. We would then greatly appreciate everyones opinions and feedback on this document.


With the fluid world we are all living in currently, you will notice some changes within the running of our events for the remainder of the 2020 season (COVID-19 Style).


In the "Rules and Constitution" tab above you will seethe we have added our COVID-19 documents. in this you will find that there is a COVID-19 Policy in which clearly outlines the changes that you will see and what you as a member are to adhere to at all times.


LETS TOGETHER MAKE THE REMAINDER OF 2020 A BLAST, HAVE SOME FUN, MEET NEW PEOPLE, MAKE MEMORIES AND PEN SOME CATTLE......
