Hon. Secretary  Miss Phillippa White  M: 07973 877370  



During last Saturday's excellent Opening Meet it was suggested that the Tumblers Club should be re-activated.

As in the past, the aim is to have some more fun from our hunting days and to hold an end of season get together for those who have joined the Club!  We will also make a contribution to the Air Ambulance.

Adult tumblers will be asked to contribute £10 per tumble however it happens, or can take out £25 'insurance' for the season.  Under 16s (or rather their parents...) will be asked for £5 per involuntary dismount.

To make this work can you all please take this idea in the spirit it is intended - fun and honesty.  It will not be compulsory but no donations - no party for you .....

We already have some pledges for insurance and are pleased to announce that a Master Chapman (no I still can't tell them apart either!) was the first to be offered the exclusive privilege of joining the Club after Saturday's spill.  We will set up a roll of honour on the hunt website so you can all see who will be at the end of season party!

You are welcome to pay any contributions to me in cash or cheque payable to the GHSA please or to be very modern ... send to the GHSA bank account 81154761, 40 19 07 marked Tumblers Club.

Hope you all have a fantastic season.

Tom Upton

Following the success of the 2014/15 competition, the Countryside Alliance and Champagne Pol Roger are delighted to team up for the second year running with their national Hunt Tumblers’ Club competition. The competition will launch on 1st November 2015 and invites photos of tumbles taken during the 2015/16 hunting season. The competition aims to celebrate the daring and elasticity of those who hunt while capturing tumblers’ moment of misfortune forever. Read more here, including the rules.
