Oakridge Copse Practice Trial

All is good to go for our next Practice Trial at Oakridge Copse on Saturday 5th December. There are still a few places available for this “just like a trial”, but without scoring. As with all current activity entry is through the ACU system, with no on the day entry and still no casual spectators.

The John Wright

12th December at Woodberry Lane. The entry is now open on the ACU portal for this event where you can put a few miles on the clock of your bike with an enjoyable long ride around the woods.

We still need some Observers with bikes to look after the distant sections, a chance to have a ride and play in the woods – and earn £20.00 – not a bad day out!

Just like the old days there will be a Burge Van! Please look after Sam.

Ham Lane Cutting out and Practice

Thursday 17th December. It is a Thursday due to various reasons including the “shooters”, but we need just 20 volunteers to join us at Ham Lane Langrish to cut out and create new sections in preparation for future Trials. Plan is to turn up at 10.00am and work for a couple of hours making sections and then play for a couple of hours trying them all out. There is a charge of £10.00 to cover the cost of the ACU permit and landowners expenses.

 The Dick Hoyles

New Year’s Eve at Ham Lane. Entry will open three weeks before the Trial, in line with current ACU restrictions.

 Hut Hill Practice

Our first Practice session of 2021 is at Hut Hill on Saturday 9th January. Please note you will need to have 2021 Waltham Chase Club Membership and 2021 ACU Trials Registration to enter. The entry will open three weeks before the session. It will be good to have a ride around Hut Hill Again.

Provisional Dates 2021

To enter a "Restricted Trial" you need to be a member of Waltham Chase MCC and have 2021 Trials Registration.

To enter an "Open" Trial or Southern Centre Championship round you need to be a member of an ACU affiliated Club and have 2021 Trials Registration.

On dates where we show "Club Trial or Practice" the actual event held will depend on any current restrictions and the availability of Observers.

It is unlikely that we will be able to use punch cards and clippers for the foreseeable future, so self marking will not be possible. 

Practice Trials will be marked out with sections, just like a normal trial, so you can score yourself to see how well you are doing.

We will take the call on Club Championships when we better understand how we can operate in 2021, so for the time being all events will be “stand alone” Trials or Practice Sessions.
