Thirty-five competitors competed in the 26th (or 27th, not sure) edition of the Waldingfield HDT. The show was dedicated to the celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday, with obstacles named Sandringham Woods, Balmoral, 90th Birthday Cake, Windsor Great Park, Holyrood Park and English Oak…no doubt inspired by Organizer Holly Pulsifer’s recent trip to England for the official birthday celebration. The Queen herself (or a reasonable facsimile there-of) reciprocated by attending the Waldingfield. A birthday cake helped mark the occasion and a special award was given to Vermonter Susan Lathrop for having a birthdate closest to the Queen’s (April 23).


A record 14 VSE’s competed (including club members Valerie Giacalone, Nancy LeBaron-Kiley , Kat DeLacy, and Gail Wong).Other Club Members competed (Kim Porter) while many others officiated (Lauren Reece, TD, Holly Pulsifer, Susan Koso and David Smith) while others designed courses (Marc Johnson).
