Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon on Hold Until Virus Clears

Wellington, FL - December 26, 2006 – In light of the recent outbreak of the Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1), organizers of this years Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon™ have postponed the event originally scheduled for January 6, 2007.

Samantha Charles, publisher of Sidelines Magazine regretfully announced, “At this time, I am afraid that we are on hold for the Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon to benefit the Equestrian Aid Foundation,” she said. “Due to the recent virus outbreak, most of our horses are in a lock down and no events or intermingling of horses is advised. We will certainly reschedule the triathlon were just not sure yet of a date. Much depends on the duration of this outbreak. We will be contacting everyone in plenty of time so that we can keep you all involved,” said Charles.

A devoted group of volunteers are still persevering in the planning of the event. “We will continue to organize our silent auction and accept table and ticket sales. Our teams are lined up, shirts on order, VIP tables have been sold, and several wonderful silent auction items have already been collected. So when we do reschedule we should be ready to go,” she added.

The Celebrity Bartending party at the Players Club on Thursday night Jan 4, 2007, beginning at 7:30pm is still on. “We hope everyone will come out and enjoy a little holiday cheer, and give Robert Dover, Michelle Grubb, Tony Coppola and other triathlon players and celebrities a little run for their money trying to serve you a libation!” Charles concluded.

Despite the delay, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever. Details of the new time and date will be published promptly when more information is available.
