News Update - 1st December
 

Well here we are again, just two more Trials and another year will be over, but panic ye not, we have 28 events booked for 2017, and I dare say we may well may cram in a couple more!

At the end of this News Update you will find our draft 2017 calendar. All dates are subject to final confirmation when the venue details are finalised.

Apart from the Trials we already have planned a Quiz Night, Awards Presentation, and the Camping Weekend –which has a very different theme for 2017. (Can’t share yet as I am sworn to secrecy!)

In case we do not see you before Christmas all at Waltham Chase Trials wish you and your families a great Christmas and prosperous New Year.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2017

The start time is 10.00am, with the sections closing at 3.00pm.

You are welcome to wear fancy dress, as long it is safe, with prizes for riders, observers and anyone else who turns out in seasonal attire.

New Year’s Eve Trial – The Dick Hoyles

Waltham Chase are holding their annual Dick Hoyles Charity Shield Trial on Saturday the 31st December at Hut Hill, with a stat time of 10.00. 

This trial is “open” all, with club and ACU membership being available on the day for non-members.

Finish time is 3.00pm, with the gates closed by 3.30 to make sure you to get away to party in good time.

Sam’s Catering van will be on site serving hot food and drinks.

We do need ten volunteer Observers for this Trial, so offers to help in advance are appreciated.

We pay £20.00 expenses to Observers for this event.

Waltham Chase Trials MCC – Quiz Evening

Waltham Chase are hosting a Quiz Evening at the Ship Inn, Redbridge on Friday the 20th January.

If you are serious about “Quizzing” this may not be for you, but if you fancy a fun night out with a drink, a laugh and some pub grub you just might enjoy it.

Doors open at 7.00 pm with the quiz starting at 7.30.

The cost per guest is £7.00, which includes a basket meal of ¼ roast chicken, Cumberland sausage, scampi, vegetable samosa, veggie burger or cod fillet served with chips and salad garnish.

You can book your tickets, confirming your menu option, at either of the two remaining 2016 Trials or reserve places by email: walthamchasetrials@outlook.com

Places are limited to just 40 guests so do book early to avoid disappointment!

As always, donated raffle prizes are appreciated.
