Youth Members’ BIG DAY OUT

As part of the Inverness & District MCC youth promotion, in memory of our life member, Paul Kilbauskas, our youth members had an ‘activity day’ courtesy of the club at the G2 Outdoor Zip Wire facility on Alvie Estate on Saturday 29th June.

Alvie Estate are of course our Main Trial Partner for our Highland Classic 2 Day Trial and Paul Kilbauskas Memorial Trials, and we like to support the businesses who are tenants of the estate.

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.

Intro To Trials day success again for IDMCC

In association with northern trials dealers, Highland Leisure Sport, Invergordon, the Inverness & District organized their annual Introduction To Trials day at Tain on Sunday 30th December, 2018.

It was voted another great success with 86 participants which included a number of new riders who came along to sample our sport.

The club in 2018 had 194 members and we are already standing at 92 on 3rd January and the season hasn’t even begun.

The organizing committee decided at the AGM in December to save the proceeds of the Intro Day for charity, and this year the beneficiaries will be the ‘Highland Hospice’ in Inverness.

A bucket was made available to collect donations on the day, but the club will pay the necessary event insurance fees to the SACU and the sum payable to the charity will be around £1,000, a significant amount, being the entry fees from the practice day, plus the donations from the bucket collection. Thank you to all who donated on the day.

The practice day went down very well with dry weather and an opportunity to get out on the bike to blow off the Christmas cobwebs. Everyone enjoyed the day and the new entrants enjoyed sampling the sport which resulted in new memberships for the club. To all our new members, welcome to the IDMCC!

Many thanks to Garry Coward for organizing the venue to which the owner waived his usual fee in favour of a charitable donation. Also many thanks to our event secretary, Stewart Anderson who was busy collecting all the entry fees and also the membership renewals on the day.

Remember, if you have still to renew your membership to do so before the end of this month when the new SACU Trials Registration cards become valid for 2019. The rule is join the club first then complete the SACU card application. This is then sent direct to the SACU. A Trials Registration card is required by all riders in all club and national events. One Event licences will still be available at £6.00 per event, so it is still cheaper to get a proper card as it is only £12 for the year.

Membership subscriptions remain for 2019 at £15.00 for Adult riding members; £5.00 for Youths and £5.00 for social non-riding members.

Membership forms are available on the Club forms page. HERE

Club Trial Scores

Any rider taking part in our monthly Club trials who would like their score recorded/tabulated, please make sure that you count up your own score and write it on your card when you hand it in at the end of the event.

This applies only to club trials and not the championship rounds which are of course properly observed.

Stewart Anderson will then compile a spreadsheet of the scores after the trial and it will be put on this website as soon as possible after the event.
