Well done to all the winners, especially Smithy for winning the Expert award, along with Mike Nutbrown for the over 250cc Expert award and to Dean Latter for securing the Intermediate award ahead of me !!
Naturally our thanks go to Maureen and Roy for looking after the combine successfully for the past year.
Please note that following an inspection of the car park area this morning we have decided this weekends trial will need to be cancelled or postponed until later in the year. The entrance and field is waterlogged and is unusable unfortunately.
We apologise for the late notice and ask that if you know anyone that was intending to ride to let them know asap.
