Unfortunately due to standing water on the racecourse and a poor forecast, the @sepointtopoint fixture at Godstone (March 1) has been forced to postpone. They will consider a new date, more news to follow.

@pointtopoint @GoPointing @PointingSE

Sadly after a course inspection at Godstone this morning, we have no option but to cancel the meeting on Sunday March 1st. There is standing water on the course and with more rain & high winds forecast we could not go ahead. We will look at rearranging at a later date.
