Fair Hill International 2015

With all the feverish Rolex excitement and afterglow swirling about in everyone's minds, I want to take this opportunity to plant a little seed of thought: 

Every fall, The Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI** and CCI*** events are held in Elkton, Maryland. The event attracts top-level competitors (many of whom were just at Rolex), but the logistics and costs involved make it more easily accessible to fans than Rolex.

I've never been before, but am bound and determined to change that this year (it's only an hour from my house!) - and plan to go at least for cross country on Saturday, October 17.

Hopefully we'll pull together a nice little party from my barn - but the reason I'm posting this here is to get any other bloggers/readers in the region thinking about it too. 

Do you plan to go to Fair Hill International, or are you at least considering it?? Let me know!

  1. I go almost every year. I've also been to Rolex, and I have to say, I like Fair Hill better! Its more relaxed. But the shopping sucks - Rolex wins that for sure.

    1. i've heard both of those things about the events - that fair hill can actually be a lot more enjoyable. and perhaps the crappy shopping situation is a blessing in disguise, since i really don't need any additional help spending money lol

  2. Oh, sure. Just pick the year to attend that I move far, far away from it. Don't mind me, all by myself up here in New York, away from all my lovely Area II events....

    Ok, I'm done hijacking the comments for a pity party. ;)

  3. That's cool that it is so close to you! I won't be going since it is all the way across the country, but I do have Woodside and Galway several hours away.
