I’ve been copied the Results of the Southern Experts. I guess it’s not a surprise that Alexz is this years Southern Solo Expert. More comment later.
I’ve also just been advised by the Bath Club, that they have secured a different parking area for this year that should avoid the difficulties that wet weather can bring for vehicles exiting the venue previously. Please watch for & follow the Castrol arrows from J18 of the M4, you’ll go down the A46 as usual, take the [I think from memory 2nd right hand turn, no it won’t, it’ll be the third] & go on past the little track on the right that you used for the last few years. The new parking area entrance is a little closer to Baths Lansdown Racecourse. If you get to the A420 you’ve gone too far!
The Board met on Tuesday for its monthly Meeting & amongst other matters discussed the format of the Centre Trials Championship for 2013., as has been advised via the usual mechanism. I introduced both the Rider consultation/survey & the Club consultation/survey & the Chairman invited comments. I was disappointed, but not surprised, that no Riders, who are not Club Delegates, took the opportunity to attend the Board.
About 25 minutes of discussion ensued, with many cogent observations made which included recognition of the latest ACU, UEM & FIM stated positions, the known situations in the present Championships in other Centres [but which may be changed for their next Championship Series], the response rate to the Boards survey of Riders and those responses. It reviewed this years Championship to date and the Board was also mindful that it’s decision could only affect its Championship. So everything was debated at length on your behalf
The Board decided that it would retain the current “No Stop” Observation Rule for the 2013 Wessex Centre Trials Championship.
So there you have it. Thanks to all that have made input to the Boards deliberations. It’s been appreciated.
Hope to see you all at the Knut: Frank
