WDTC Midweek Club Trial

26th Jul, 2019 | Mark Keenan

Is there ever such a thing as enough practice?  This is your chance to fit in one more practice, just a couple of days before the Qld Titles for Classics and Twinshock bikes.

Western Districts Trials Club are pleased to announce another

WDTC Midweek Club Trial.

Wednesday 14th August 2019

This is the next in a series of proposed mid-week trials being run as an experiment throughout the year by WDTC to cater for the weekend workers, the retired, the unemployed and under employed,  the RDO entitled, and anyone else who can make it.  This one differs from the rest because it is purposely placed to fall on the Brisbane show holiday, and therefore we are expecting a few more riders may be able to take advantage of the chance for a ride.

Our initial experiences with the midweek trials showed that it was mainly lower grade adult riders, so that is the classes we normally set up for, however all are welcome, and I have set some extra classes to cater for any juniors who are not required to be at school. If you are wanting to come and there is no correct class for you to enter, just enter something anyway, preferably in the right age group, and therefore correct entry fee, and we'll fix it all on the day, or contact us and we will fit you in.   Phone 07 3349 9996 or email markkeenan@bigpond.com 

In the usual style for our club competitions, and in the spirit of the QTSC open door policy of participation, any member of any Qld trials club with an MA licence is welcome to participate.  We are not anticipating large numbers, and to minimise the workload on property owners and our usual helpers, we are intending to have an early start on the day and those who can get there early will set sections or adjust sections as required.

We are intending to set a small number of sections, and all ride together in several groups, most likely one group for each line.  With everyone in these groups, in the same style as what we did at the last one,  everyone gets to see everyone else ride, everyone helps to observe,  helps to score, and everyone gets to ride.

We will be providing a free sausage sizzle, (or equivalent depending on what's available) for all participants, and we are also expecting all riders will remain at the completion of the event for section clean-up, a drink or whatever, and a presentation, but be warned, this event is more about inclusion and participation, and the trophies might not necessarily go to the actual winners, but might go to the biggest crash, the best failed effort, the best successful effort, or maybe even to the best observer on the day - or whatever is deemed to be a truly outstanding effort by general consensus at the time.

We prefer entries to be done before the event in Ridernet, but we will also accept entries on the day.  Supp-regs, all revevant details and entries are online at Ridernet.

For the benefit of spectators, and those who can't find their way to Ridernet:  This event will be at "Burchman Farm" 634 Hiddenvale Road, Calvert Qld. 4340
That is near the small township of Grandchester, just a short comfortable drive to the west of Ipswich.

As always now for our events, the details are all available on Ridernet. You do not need a Ridernet login to see the events, and their associated details.

For those who have been counting the days.......
This Wednesday one is an extra that we've thrown into the mix, to take advantage of both a gap in the calendar, and a midweek public holiday. We will still be having the next Thursday one as originally planned. Sorry about the short notice, but it was worth jumping in when the opportunity arose.
