The company held its Annual General Meeting on Monday 11th December 2023 at Fairways Leisure at 7.30pm.
Compared to previous years, it was a disappointing turnout considering the clubs have a membership of 153 for 2023. Hopefully members will take a more active interest in the club going forward.
The only changes were the resignation of John Garth from the committee, which was unexpected and the committee and directors thank him for his term of office on the committees of the two clubs and for the use of his business premises for our committee meetings.
Committee meetings will now be held courtesy of Mr. Jamie Hogan at Caley Marina in Canal Road, Inverness.
A replacement was sought for the vacancy on the committees, and Richard MacKintosh was elected onto the committees. Later the same evening, John Moffat proposed that ‘Dicky’ be nominated for the accolade of ‘Life Member’ which was unanimously agreed.
The other business included an increase to the adult riding membership subscription to £30 for the year to 14th December 2024. The subscriptions have been static for around 5 years so an increase was expected. The Youth and Social memberships remain at £10 for the season.
John Garth proposed a new trial in memory of Mr. Julian Noble of Cannich. This was agreed and one of the club trials at Cannich would be named accordingly, it would be open to AMCA clubs.
It was noted that founder/member Ray Sangster passed away recently, his funeral was held at Froickheim on Thursday 14th December. A new trophy will be inaugurated for the 2024 Highland Classic Two-Day Trial in his memory. It will be awarded to the winner of the trial, this is new for 2024 and will go to the best rider in the Twinshock A category who will be the overall winner of the trial.
The meeting closed at 9.30pm with a vote of thanks to the Chair, Grant Coward.
It’s that time of year again!

The club have been guests at Kerrow Farm, Cannich for almost 40 years and are indebted to Julian and his family for their continuous permission to hold events on their land.
