2014 AGM Update

As you may or may not know, our AGM was held on the 12th Nov, as usuall to review and discuss events from the last 12 months, with everyone staying on in their roles, with Alan Lord as Chairman, and Mick Whitlow as club President, and the addition of young Sam Blackburn as a committee member.

Hot on the agenda was the trials we put on, the general opinion from the riders is that the trials are mostly spot on, so it is a bit of a puzzle to us that the entries have been so low, the loss of a good piece of land at Shawforth for a while has done us no favours, but the news from Ian Alderson is that the work on the windfarms is well underway, and once finished the landowner is keen for us to use this venue again, whether it will be next year, we,ll just have to wait and see. So we have decided, with a limited number of venues available to us that we will use 400 Acres next year for the Julian Bentley Trial, the lap can be a bit tougher than normal, but ideal for those who like a moorland trial.

Also the entry fee has been reduced to £10 for youths to make it more affordable for dads and their lads, this may also attract a few more youngsters especially to the novice beginner series, hopefully. We are also looking into getting a new club website, something that is easy for everyone to use, so we can get the information out there for everyone to see, if anyone knows anyone who can do this, please get in touch.

On a sad note, it has been decided not to run the evening series next year due to the low entries, this is NOT set in stone, if riders think we should run these trials, and the support is there, the club is more than happy to run the series again, its up to you guys, just let us know what you think.

With the new piece of land at Walsden and the good news for the land at Shawforth it may start to look up for the club this year, and hopefully, with the changes the club have planned, people can see that we are trying …..

Hope to see you all at our next trial, which is the Pennine Trial At Lee Quarry, and the one after this is our Charity Trial on Boxing Day, thanks to all of you that have supported us throughout the year, see you soon…..
