Committee News

Dear members                          

Your committee are pleased to report another successful year for our club and are optimistically looking forward to 2011 with anticipation and enthusiasm for several reasons:-

On the 2nd October R & DMC and Cowm Leisure will be hosting the Red Rose Solo British Championship Round at Back Cowm Quarry; this will be a fantastic event not just from the point of view of raising the image of our club but also for the sport in general; many spectators will attend who would not normally participate in our sport, this will generate interest and promote a better understanding of Trials and will no doubt be well covered by the local press.

Due to the success of this years practice days Chris Law is organising at least one training day (date to be confirmed) which the club will be contributing towards the costs involved, there will be a top class British Championship rider to give help and assistance, please keep an eye on our website for further updates.

A very well received Conducted class was added in both our Joan Robinson Evening Trials and the Novice Beginners Championship series; this was attributed to the kind offer of help from Neil Anderton whom we are pleased to welcome as a new committee member; we are also very grateful to and would like to thank Ian and Shane from the Cock & Magpie for their hospitality & generosity in providing a free supper to all who attended their pub after each Evening Trial.

We also offer a warm welcome to Peter Andrews & Andy Wright; both have volunteered to help within the club and have joined our committee as from our AGM in November.

Please note:- in an attempt to accommodate varying levels of ability, the 2011 Trials are planned as follows

Conducted classes will be included in the Evening Trials and the Novice Beginner Series

The Novice Beginner series will be tailored to a slightly easier standard than normal club Trials

The Joan Robinson Evening series & other club Trials will be at an average level

The Julian Bentley & The Pennine which are our North West Center rounds will be more challenging!

A new award is on the horizon, “The Ann Isherwood Observers Championship Trophy”, as you will know Ann was a regular volunteer for observing not just at our club but at every Trial she attended; this will be awarded to the person who observes the most often at our club Trials throughout the season.

Please hand back any trophies to committee members as soon as possible so that they can be engraved in preparation for the next recipients.

Our now “renowned” Annual Presentation Dinner is booked for the 5th March 2011 at the Riverside, Whitworth, this event is always a complete sell out so please be sure to order your tickets in advance for what is guaranteed to be a seriously good night out (five course meal & live entertainment)

We have encountered no reported incidents this year of members riding illegally at our venues 🙂

The general conduct of riders at our events has been excellent!  We would like to thank everyone for their personal contribution which has helped maintain standards for the good of the club and its members.

Committee meetings are held at the Healey Hotel, Shawclough Road on the second Wednesday of each month at 8:30pm, if you would like to offer help in some way please come along


May we take this opportunity to wish you a very

Happy New Year !
