Death of Robert Kling

It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of club member Robert ‘Bob’ Kling, formerly of Highland Locksmiths, Inverness who passed away peacefully following an accident earlier this week on his Beta at Torvean Quarry during a private practicing session.

Bob was a likeable character and set up his locksmiths business with his wife in 1985, retiring and selling out to MacGregor Industrial Supplies in 2013.

The committee and directors of Inverness & District Motor Cycle Club Ltd send their sincere condolences to the Kling family at this difficult time.

Bob’s funeral arrangements are: 13.45 at Inverness Crematorium, Kilvean Road, Inverness, IV3 8JN on Wednesday 27th February.

Championship Round 1 – Alvie Estate

The 2019 Club Championship kicks off on Sunday, March 3rd at Alvie Estate.

Please note that if you want to score club championship points you must hold an SACU Trials Registration Card issued by virtue of your membership of IDMCC. This will be checked when you sign on. The club of issue is directly below your name on the front of the Trials Registration Card.

One Event licences are available at the cost of £6.00 but will not earn you championship points. It is better value if you get an SACU Trials Registration Card, lasts until 30th January 2020 at the cost of £12!

The trial is an Open To Scotland permitted event, so members of any SACU club are most welcome but they will not be credited with IDMCC championship points.

Please have the correct entry fee with you and arrive on time for the briefing and start.

Please note that Club Trials start at 10.30 sharp, with signing on from 9.00 am to 10.15 am. Latecomers may not be able to enter as entries will be closed at 10.15 am.

Highland Classic entries close after 24 hours

The Highland Classic 2 Day Trial 2019 entries were opened at midnight on Friday 1st February and closed almost 24 hours later!

A staggering 228 entry forms were received by our Entries Secretary by the Sunday, making the event oversubscribed by 85 entrants for the 160 available spaces.

Quite a few IDMCC members secured an entry, but this was only achievable by hand delivering the entry form to the Entries Secretary on the Friday or Saturday morning, such was the demand.

Hand deliveries were received from riders as far away as the Scottish Borders!

This now establishes the Highland Classic as the main trial that the IDMCC promote and produces the largest amount of income to the club, money that is available for other club promotions.
