John McKinnon had mapped out extra
sections to this year’s Trial
Day. He does a great job in marking out the two courses for Standard
and Advanced riders.
Each section had something different to offer to test your skills.
Bikes varied from full-on trial bikes to off-road, Don’s postie bike
and our BSA C10L. Neil who was unable to ride generously brought 2
bikes for others to use, so even if you didn’t have a bike, if you
wanted to, you could ride.
Weaving through trees, deep ditches, over
up and down a steep
hill, skirting (hopefully) water traps, it was all great fun.
Dave Ward did the course with KT (his dog) riding pillion!
At the end of the Trials there was a BBQ lunch on their verandah as
well as the urn boiling the water for tea or coffee.
John, when announcing the winners, generously presented them with
bottles of wine.
Winners were Steven Robson youngest rider and lost only 1 point. Ian
Alexander who only lost 11 points, Barry Robson who lost 19 points in
the Advanced section and Dave Ward and KT, best rider and dog combo.
It was a great day and many thanks to John and Maureen for putting it on.
