25 years ago!

From a set of minutes recently discovered!

On 12th December 1993, the IDMCC held it’s Annual General Meeting at Cawdor Tavern, following on from a very icy trial at Drynachan. which attracted 14 of the 34 members we had at that time. This year we have 194 members!

The club membership fees for 199 were held at £12 and £5 for youth and social members (2018 was £15 and £5).

During the year, club trials attracted around 17 riders per event of which there were 13 that season.

The secretary pointed out that we needed 19 riders at Alvie to break even as we paid £1.25 per rider to the Estate!

The bank account in 1993 stood at £800.00 (the 2018 figure is much more than that!)

Ewan MacPherson was appointed Chairman, but declined in favour of Johnny Macintosh. John MacLennan was again voted in as Secretary, but wanted a break so Willie MacMillan stepped up to take the job.

Dave MacKay became Treasurer and Ian Grant was Press Officer. Malcolm Smith became Trials Convenor.

The committee consisted of: Ewan MacPherson. Gavin Johnston, Alan Gordon, Keith MacIntosh, Gary Kennedy and Dave Kennedy.

Malcolm Smith suggested the creation of a Pre’65 National Trial to be held at Alvie (this is now our Paul Kilbauskas Memorial national trial).

John MacLennan clarified that SACU permit A & B routes in Scottish Championship rounds. If the club were to implement split routes, then riders will require A & B plates fixed to the front of their bikes for the benefit of observers. The committee were to consider the implications more fully.

New Trophy For IDMCC

The John Younie Memorial Trophy, donated by Richard Mackintosh to the club.

Long standing member, Richard Mackintosh has purchased a new trophy for the club, which will be awarded at the ‘Big Night Out’ on December 7th 2018 to be held at Fairways Leisure.
It is named the ‘John Younie Memorial Trophy’ for the best performance by an Inverness & District MCC member in the Scottish Six Days Trial annually. This is not an official award of the SSDT; this is an official award of the IDMCC only to bona-fide club members who take part in the annual event.
John Younie was a farmer and IDMCC member from Drumnadrochit who competed in club and national trials. Richard, or Dicky Mac as many of us know him as, was a riding buddy of John Younie and he thought it appropriate to dedicate the trophy in John Younie’s memory.
This years’ winner is: Ross Murray who came home in 111th position on 274 marks.
