Planning is key to running a successful event. It is important that you are aware of the dates of the HASSRA Festivals so as to avoid any clashes before finalising the date on which you propose to hold the event to confirm that it is within the agreed timescale. You should also carefully read the rules and general information for the event that you are organising to ensure that you are aware of all requirements.

Please also be aware that the proposed venue should be accessible to as many members as possible, close to good public transport links and, if appropriate, near to suitable accommodation.  

Prizes will be awarded to winners and runners-up, with the costs shared equally between the participating regions. You should also confirm if there is a perpetual trophy.
