Pre Season Chairman's Chat......

The new season will soon be with us. It’s surprising how quick it comes around again.
The committee and I have been very busy in booking a full program of events again this season. Eleven trials at eleven different sites. This includes two new sites to the Club. The first one is a new site and Landowner in the Huntsham area kindly organized by Richard Broom and the second one is Binegar Quarry just outside of Shepton Mallett.
It’s a mix this year of local and “have wheels, will travel “events for this season. The long haul sites are also very popular with other clubs in the region. This gives the Club the opportunity to rest some local sites which over many years have become stale and repetitive.
We are as always needing a Clerk of the Course for these events to take place, so please volunteer and help where you can. After all the effort and phone calls that has been made, it would be disheartening to have to cancel an event through lack of support.
Hopefully Dave our new caterer will look after us as well his customers at his lay-by pitch on the Quantock Hills. Please give him your support.
The first Trial this season will again be at Yarcombe Woods. Back by popular demand is Mr Paul “The Gate Master” Wilkins as C of C and his crew of helpers. We can guarantee the gates and sections will be set to give us all a Great start to the season.
As always at the start of a new season there will be some new trialers and hopefully some new faces making an appearance.
Here’s looking forward to the barbed remarks and banter which is all part of the trial scene with The East Devon off Road Club.

See you soon,


Phil wanted to share this write up with you all from someone who came along to a trial in 2017.
