Annual Dinner & Prize Presentation

Eighty-three attendees for another successful event organised and orchestrated by the husband and wife team of John & Jean Kershaw, thanks to them for all their hard work. The planned band, Phased Rotation, were unable the appear as one of the members, Andy Wilson, was hospitalised, but they arranged for a substitute in the form of Sons of Robin to appear. They were quite comical, the Freddie Mercury piece in particular, but very loud, just the thing for loosening the ear wax!

MC John did most of the announcing apart from announcing the West Leeds winners, Paul Whitaker reprising his role in this task using his own inimitable style.

Russ Brodie took over the task of announcing the winners of the Horsforth trophies. Quite a number of youth riders present to take some of the Horsforth awards.

Following one of the bands set pieces the raffle prize draw took place and in what has now become a custom MC John left the star prize of a rear trials tyre until the last number drawn. By chance this winning number was held by Jean Kershaw, who immediately put it up for auction; the proceeds going to St Gemma's Hospice. The opening bid was for £50, but very quickly went up to the winning bid of £90. This bid being from none other than our General Secretary, Mark Chippendale. We will be expecting him to clean everything once the tyre is fitted!

 

New Years Day N&B Trial

Course setter Jeff Prior had laid out some very sensible sections for this first event of our N&B series. With the ground dried out somewhat from the Boxing day event; a fairly low scoring event was on the cards and so it turned out. Steven Fowler held his nerve and went round clean on the main route, followed by 3 riders all on two marks lost, seperated by the furthest clean rule.

On the 50/50 route it was Mick Ward who just managed to hold off a strong challenge from B class rider, Arran Sherwin. Four riders on this route managing to keep their score under ten.
On the Beginners route once again it was Ged Fallon who just pipped Steve Wicks for the win - this is getting to be a habit!

 

Presidents Trial

Very greasy conditions for the Presidents Trial made keeping the feet on the pegs a difficult thing to do. West Leeds rider Liam Walker managed best at this task as he came out on top just holding off a strong challenge from another WL rider, Sam Ludgate, Sam doing particularly well as he has been out of trials for some time whilst he has been road racing and enduro riding.

Horsforth man Richard Mellon topped the 50/50 route with a very respectable score and Neil Gaunt took the win on the clubman route.

The March of Time

As time passes we all get older even West Leeds club officials, hard to believe right!

Some of our officials are well past retiring age and we now need some computer whizz kid to start learning the ropes of the stuff our present trials secretary and webmaster deals with basically results + website maintenance and design. Various systems are in place which without any instruction our present club officials would find unfathomable!(no disrespect). Are you up to the challenge? Do you know anything about spreadsheets and web programming? We would love to hear from you!
