Albers Award Presented to Region 1 Chef d’Equipe Debbie DelGiorno




Lexington, KY (July 25, 2014) - The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that the Albers Award perpetual trophy was awarded to Region 1 Chef d'Equipe Debbie DelGiorno, at this year's USDF/Platinum Performance North American Junior & Young Rider Dressage Championships at the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North (NAJYRC).


"I can think of no better person to win this award.  Debbie works tirelessly on behalf of the Region 1 Team, both before and during the event.  The fact that Debbie stepped into the Region 1 Chef d'Equipe position to fill Patsy's shoes after her untimely passing makes this even more special” stated Roberta Williams, USDF FEI Jr/YR Committee Chair.
The Albers Award is named in honor of long time USDF Region 1 Chef d'Equipe, supporter, and good friend, Patsy Albers. The award is presented annually at the USDF/Platinum Performance North American Junior & Young Rider Dressage Championships to the dressage chef d'equipe who best demonstrates the same level of dedication, enthusiasm, and team spirit shown by Patsy throughout the years. The award is open to all of the dressage chefs d'equipe and any competitor or chef d'equipe can nominate a candidate by submitting a written explanation as to why that chef deserves to win the Albers Award.


The 2014 Adequan/USDF Annual Convention will be in Cambridge, MA December 3 through December 6, 2014. The host hotel is the Hyatt Regency Cambridge, located at 575 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA.

The New England Dressage Association (NEDA), will be sponsoring the welcome party on Thursday Night at Ned Devine's Irish Pub at Faneuil Hall in historic Boston, which is right across the Charles River from the Hyatt Cambridge, our host hotel. Faneuil Hall has served as a marketplace and a meeting hall since 1742. Inspirational speeches by Samuel Adams and other patriots were given at Faneuil Hall. These oratories became the foundation for America's desire to obtain independence from the British. After the party, you can enjoy the many restaurants in this historic area and take the later courtesy bus back to the hotel.
