This year we decided to have a prize draw with a good prize, £100 to be exact. Without observers and land, we have no event.

Our annual Highland Classic Two Day has had a refresh by trials rider Joe Baker of Joe Baker Design in Devon.
The club have commissioned a logo to be used in connection with our very popular trial which is known as “The Friendliest Classic Trial in Scotland”,
The new logo captures the spirit of the event being for Pre’65 and Twinshock machines and is the successor to the old Highland Two Day Trial which began in 1950 by the Highland Car & Motor Cycle Club which split into two and eventually the loss of the motor cycle element. In the 1970s the Inverness & District was formed and Malcolm Smith, a founder life member was keen to start a Pre’65 event which has grown in stature year on year since 2003.
The new logo will be used in all promotional material from now on.
Entry forms will be available from 00:00 on 1st February 2019 with entries limited to 160 plus guest riders. It will be on a first receipt basis with no ballot and a reserves list made up from those who are initially unsuccessful. Postal, courier or delivered entries only, there will be no online entries or entries by electronic means.
