To see so many events having to cancel is sad, but we were lucky last weekend that Stuart Buntine and his team were determined to battle the elements at Belton, where I am the cross-country course-designer. Belton and Eland Lodge were the only events to survive this weekend from six scheduled, albeit both had to cancel some classes.
