Briport & Weymouth MCC

Our next Trial is July 15th



PISTON SLAP APRIL 2018 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. A few new faces at the AGM which was good to see especially as one was a youth member. All members are welcome to attend our meetings, in fact we would like to see a few new faces possibly with fresh ideas. All officials retained their posts (no one else offered to relieve us). Club finances remain healthy just about breaking even over the year and with no increase in insurance fees, entries will remain, as last year, £13 adult and £10 youth at our closed to club trials. The Open to Centre is a bit more at £15 and £12 as the costs are a bit higher. All our 2017 trials were successful but a few more entries would have been welcome in some cases. AWARDS PRESENTATION. I’m afraid this became a non-event. Despite the fact it was near enough a free night out not enough interest came from club members, which was a shame after all the effort put in by Richard Dearden. It seems riders are happy to collect their awards at future trials which is a pity. The Annual Dinner & Awards Presentation was once the highlight of the year with a three-course meal live music and all. Those were the days. Anyone who would still like to collect their award can do so at the next Committee Meeting at Three Compasses on Mon April 9th. Just let me know you will be there and I will bring it with me if not you can pick up your award at future trials. WEST DORSET TROPHY TRIAL SUN APRIL 15th. Plans are well advanced for our Open to Centre Championship Trial. Clerk of Course Roger Johns has already made a number of visits to the area and plans to expand the area of new land in Hooke Park. All we need is a decent entry and some good weather. This is one of the best courses in the Southern Centre with the added bonus that it is only used once a year. Start time is 11.00am and route to the start will be marked off A356 Maiden Newton - Crewkerne road (by the radio mast) Postcode is DT6 3TH for sat nav users. As usual the trial will be run on an Open Permit so riders from any Centre can compete without joining a Southern Centre Club. One day licences and club membership (at £2) are available if necessary. This is always a brilliant trial and deserves a decent entry. The surrounding countryside is some of the best you will find anywhere. So come along and enjoy a great day out in a fabulous area. TRIALS ACADEMY. Roger Johns has persuaded the Southern Centre to support a series of trials training days in an effort to raise the standard of riding in the centre. These days are open to any status of rider but the main aim is to improve the performances of younger members. The instructors are past or present Centre Champions so they know their stuff. The first session, held at Ringwood Club’s Hamer Warren course was very successful with near enough a full house of candidates. Number two session will run courtesy of North Berks Club possibly at Seymour’s Arena on Sat July 14th. The final one will be run by Bridport & Weymouth at Rogershill on Sat Sept 1st. Full details can be obtained from Roger Johns on 07970 293452. WEST DORSET TROPHY TRIAL. The team will be setting out the trial on Fri 13th April. Once again full details can be obtained from Roger Johns. VERY FEW PRE ENTERED AS YET. NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING MON APRIL 9th 8.00pm. Ivan
