Good idea :D

The junior 7-12 class was a very good idea and I would appreciate it, and I'm sure a lot of the other junior riders would as well, if the same class was at the 09s.

Hi
Some thoughts from Tassie - sorry but I can't attend the meeting...Ha Ha

The Sedgewick Aussie Titles were extremely well run.
The Team who planned and executed it need a huge pat on the back.

The Administration was fuss free before & during the trial
The facilities were good from Food stores to toilets & parking.
The Dealers being located at the centre worked well
Using one experienced person as the observer and a community club member for the hole puncher worked well.
The Presentation Dinner was run very well with the limited no fuss menu and the presentations occuring throughout the night.
The Mine Shaft Trophies were brilliant with that local Bendigo flavour.

Some very minor area's for improvement could be:-
1 - Clear directions to next section at exit of previous section
- A sign and or tell the person who punches your card?
2 - Bumper Stickers
- I think they could be posted out with the entry acceptance - might helpl to
promote the event too.
3- I met some people watching who had not been to trials before and had to explain
what the rules were. So perhaps a sign explaining the basic rules and or some
A4 sheets doing the smae and giving some contact points for any inspired to
take up trials as a sport.


Once again I would like to congratulate the Team who organised & ran Sedgewick.
These comments are intended to be constructive feedback.

Regards
Ian Pickering

The 1986 Aussie titles held at canungra :QLD: supplied all competitors with a bumper sticker and a keyring. Not sure if we got them before or during the event but the sticker in particular has made an excellent momento. The keyring is long gone but the sticker still has pride of place on my toolbox 22 years later.
