We're counting down to Christmas, so that means the Mendip Vale Club are on the case for organising their next event - the Turkey Team Trial, on 14 December.


One again they will be at  the all weather Binegar Quarry for this year's Trial. Format will be as usual, with Team and Fancy Dress awards, a Raffle for the Observers and Hotdog and Chips at a nearby Pub, afterwards, for the presentation of the Awards.


 Start is at 12.00. Binegar Quarry will be signed off the A37, at Gurney Slade. The course will cater for riders of all abilities, solo modern and twin shock, with On-Line Entries available now, or on the day if you prefer.

 

Riders will be allocated into teams of five, to complete for the first prize of a Turkey, second prize a Chicken and the "duffers" who come last a Plum Pudding !.

The venue is ideal for anyone to have a go, regardless of ability and any rider who takes on the additional challenge of competing in Fancy Dress will be eligible for a separate award.  Observers also get a ticket for a guaranteed prize in their own Raffle, so riders - bring a "volunteer".

To ensure everyone gets to the Pub about the same time, the Club will be starting people in groups in locations around the Course with  a 3.0pm close on the Sections, which will be plenty of time to get around.

The food, along with the Prize Giving and Awards, all included in the Entry Fee, will be at the nearby George Inn, Gurney Slade,immediately after the event.

 

Due to limited space at the Pub, Car Parking will be signed from the junction opposite and is only 100 yards away, so please don't congest the Pub and Lane. 

Enter on-line here, or on the day. Entry Form is here

Summer is done and dusted so we have our first Trial coming up on 27 October with the Brockley Cup Trial at Crox's Bottom, Chilcompton.

 

As this is a Club event, the format will be the preferred mix of sections, with separate routes for Expert, Clubman and Novice and another 50/50 combination for Clubman Expert, along with Sportsman and Sportsman Plus, so there will be plenty to choose from for all abilities. Youth A & B Classes are also catered along with Twin Shocks. 

 

All in all, five routes, all off road and stop allowed, which the top guys like for the harder course and benefits all the other routes as well.

 

The venue will be signed from the junction of the A37/B3139, north of Shepton Mallet. Start time 10:30 and entries accepted on the day.

 

We are hoping the weather will be kinder to us this year, so hopefully no vehicle slalom's in the adjacent field which we have again for Parking !. See you there.

We are kicking off our 2019 Trials season this year with the Brockley Cup Trial on 27 October with a return to Crox's Bottom, Chilcompton, where hopefully the weather will be kinder to us than it was last year !.

 

As this is a Club event, the format will be our preferred mix of sections, with separate routes for Expert, Clubman and Novice and another 50/50 combination for Clubman Expert, along with Sportsman and Sportsman Plus, so there will be plenty to choose from for all abilities. Youth A & B Classes are also catered along with Twin Shocks. 


 

Five routes, all off road and stop allowed, which the top guys like for the harder course and benefits all the other routes as well.

 

The venue will be signed from the junction of the A37/B3139, north of Shepton Mallet. Start time 10:30 and entries accepted on the day.

 

Hopefully we will have the use again  of the adjacent field for Car Parking, so parking in the lane can be avoided  but rest assured if we need to park in the lane, the verges are plenty wide enough and flat.

Entry Form is here
