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
