West Dorset 2019 Pic

PISTON SLAP AUG 2019 BOXER TRIAL. Another decent entry for our latest closed trial held at Powerstock, 41 riders coming under starters orders. Only disappointment was the lack of experts, only Ben Lovelace tackled the A route. His 13 mark loss showed a good challenge. Nine Clubmen rode the B route with Broadstone visitor Dan Marsh taking the win from local man Mark Daubney 15 marks to 20. Third place was a very close contest, both Paul Jones and Lloyd Long dropped 29 and also recorded 22 cleans Paul finally getting the nod with two more ones. Duncan Trickett topped the Novice class from Marcus Hancock. Two veterans tackled the B route Graham King taking an easy win from Simon Dean. Dave Fry secured the win in Veteran C class with the only clean sheet of the day. The recent surge in youth riders continued, eight youngsters contesting C and D routes. Jack Edwards taking the win on the C route while new member Daniel Cosser was best of four D routers. Both ending their day on single figures. Paul Brown had a bad ride in the Twin Shocks, actually losing a single mark instead of his usual clean sheet. But still won his class two marks less than regular Twin Shock competitor Bob Hampton. Many thanks to CofC Paul Rogers and the usual marking out team, to all the observers. Bill and Joan Collins travelled from Chard again and it is good to see Roger and Chris Hewitt joining us once again. Finally our usual thanks to the Crutchley family and farm manager Antony Butler for their continued support. PRESIDENTS CUP TRIAL SUN AUG 18th. Our next closed trial will be held at Bowers Quarry Portland. We hope for a bigger expert entry to tackle the Portland rockery. Once again there will be four routes with the D route fighting shy of the rocks and making full use of the earth bankings no doubt. Route to the start will be marked from the roundabout by Portland Heights Hotel (DT5 2EN) Start 11.00am as usual. SOUTHERN EXPERTS TRIAL SUN DEC 1st. Initial planning has begun for this very prestigious event. We have two possible venues. Bowers Quarry is available if needed but Roger is in negotiation to see if we can use our West Dorset land for this one off event. There is hard standing in Hooke Park for pits etc if we can get agreement to use it. We shall need a lot of assistance on the day of the trial with experienced observers the number one priority. Watch this space for further details nearer the time. TRIALS ACADEMY. Sat Sept 21st Is the date for our training day which will be held at Rogers Hill Farm as last year. Phone Roger Johns on 07970 293452 for details. PLEASE NOTE. As there was only one expert contesting the Boxer Trial the trophy will go to the top Clubman Dan Marsh. This is standard ACU procedure “ there must be three entries in any one class to qualify for the top award”. However Ben will still receive 10 points toward the championship. NOTE TO NON MEMBERS. Club membership for our Closed to Club trials is just £2. NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING MON SEPT 2nd Three Compasses Charminster 8. 00pm Ivan
