Gold Star

General BanterPosted by Martin Grimwood Wed, September 27, 2017 09:20:52

On the 13th January 2018 our club has been invited to host the BTRDA Gold / Silver star finals, how does this affect us, the membership you ask?

Whether you are a fan of the BTRDA or not this is still regarded as the biggest jewel in the crown of trialling as far as events go and is a privilege and honour to be asked, it attracts a large entry of about 45~50 crews.

This year I have been asked to Clerk the event, weather & conditions permitting it is scheduled to be held at Gale Hall. It is planned to run 3 rounds of 10 hills so we are needing at least 20 marshals & 4~5 scrutineers.

The event takes place on the Saturday (if you hadn't noticed the date) so I am taking a 3 days off work and staying at Edenhall (I'm making a fairly serious commitment to pull it off) so I can spend time setting out and making sure everything is ok, everyone is very critical of this event so it has to be "spot-on".

I'm ok with setting out, but what I am asking is that anyone not competing can pull together as a favour to me and out of a sense of duty to the club, as non of us get paid to do this so we all need to muck in to run the event on the day, lets show the rest of the country that we are a strong trialling club (the best) and can professionally run the premier event of the year.

If you are willing to help please let me know so I can get a list together and get organised.
