Cancellation of Lashing 2014
(Simon Coxwell - Sandhurst CC Chairman)
The Lashings Event at Sandhurst on Friday July 18th is not going ahead.
This is due to poor corporate table sales putting us in a position where if we had proceeded without the security of the guaranteed income from corporate sales we would be exposing the club to a possibly serious financial risk.
It was our decision to pull out for the above reason.
We did pursue various options to try to go ahead and had lengthy dialogue with Lashings in recent days but reluctantly feel that we have made the best decision for our club.
It's important now to let know as many people as possible who may have been planning to attend that the event is not going ahead, so please spread the word either by sharing this or posting your own message to the same effect.
I'm really disappointed to be the bearer of this news and would like to thank those who have put in hundreds and hundreds of hours of their own unpaid time into the organisation of this event and they have no responsibility for the current situation.
We will be aiming to make a bigger day of the RMA fixture on the Sunday July 20th as the Marquee will still be there so please try to be available on that day.
