Annually the IDMCC organise in conjunction with Highland Leisure Sport (Invergordon) the INTRO TO TRIALS event at Tain.
This year the event which is run under an SACU Practise Day Permit will take place on Sunday, 29th December and the total proceeds will be donated to CANCER RESEARCH in memory of Margaret Smith, the wife of our President, Malcolm Smith who passed away recently after fighting cancer for six years.
This is an excellent opportunity to encourage anyone who would like to know more of our sport to sample trials.
On hand will be our Club Coachs for advice and encouragement. They will even guide you on how to observe at a trial if you don’t fancy active competition.
The fees payable on the day will be: Adults £16 and Youths £10, which includes a day licence. If you wish to make a donation to Cancer Research, you can do so as well.
It promises to be a fun day out, remember it is an easy day out on the bike between Christmas and the New Year, not a competition, but designed to get you interested and informed about trials.
