Wings and Wheels: Bank Holiday weekend We will be taking part as usual in Dunsfold Airfield’s Wings and Wheels, the major air/car/bike show in the area over the Bank Holiday weekend, 28th & 29th August, along with enthusiastic youngsters from the Surrey Schoolboys Trials Club. The event will again be running on both the Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, and anyone who is available to help with setting up on Saturday, manning the stand and the arena trial on the two show days, and packing up afterwards, will be very welcome. Tickets will be available from Dave Mair. Please talk to Colin Boniface soon if you are available and interested – it’s a great weekend out.


Summer BBQ: Come along to the Clubroom on Thursday 4th August for our evening Summer Social! A fabulous barbeque with strawberries and cream for pud can be yours for a paltry fiver. We had a good turnout last year, so let’s see if we can do even better in 2011! Support your Club and enjoy good food, good company and maybe a lemonade or two...

Trials Snippets:
S.E.Centre Team Trial, Crowborough, 5th June
Paul Jay and Neil Bowker and myself entered as the Witley MCC team. There were 130 riders on the day, with one route for all team members (novice, inter and expert!). 2 laps of 20 sections, with a mix of clay banks and rock stream beds. A very good fun day with lots of mickey-taking (mainly about me not walking sections, asking Neil where it goes next and then moaning when he didn’t tell me about a twig!) We came 17th out of 28 teams. Normandy Club picked up 1st and 2nd with their teams of 3, and GEST 3rd.

June TVTC Trial, Rudgwick, 12th June
Neil laid out 8 good sections, each ridden 5 times. Since only 5 of these were observed, the other 3 were mark yourself. A rather disappointing turnout of both officials and riders for a new piece of land, but we all enjoyed it. My thanks to the Bowker family...

National Road Rally: The 2011 event, with multiple finishing points rather than a central Final Control, has been claimed a success by the organisers, despite an entry of less than 600. I guess that with fuel costs as they currently are, that may be true. Our gallant lone Club representative Dave Kavanagh completed the course at the Ace Café even before it opened on Sunday morning after 540 miles of relatively trouble free riding – just one small problem with photography... Let’s hope we can produce a proper contingent from Witley next year to continue a long tradition.
