2020 Winter Series Championship update

9 months ago • 8/11/2020Posted by Wayne Brodie

As we begin a second national lockdown due to the Covid-19 virus (Nov 5th to Dec 2nd) we find ourselves forced to re-evaluate the 2020 Winter Series, for the second time, this year. The Committee has taken the difficult decision to end the 2020 Winter Series Trials Championship now – after 8 rounds. The Award winning criteria has been amended as follows:

Adult riders must have completed a minimum of 5 rounds (in the same class) with all 8 rounds to count. Youth riders are not subject to the minimum 5 round rule. Youth riders who have competed in more than 1 class – will only qualify for an award in their highest scoring class. The full Winter Series Final Standings will be published this evening (08/11/20).

The club’s next trial was originally planned for Sunday 6th December, however this has now been rescheduled for Sunday 13th December and will be a ‘stand-alone’ trial: The matt Russell Memorial Cup. The Father & Son Boxing Day trial remains unchanged - subject to lockdown restrictions being lifted.

This year has obviously been very difficult for all of us, affecting all aspects of our lives – and I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the extra effort & hard work of those committee members who have helped navigate a path through this pandemic, allowing us to keep people engaged in the sport we all love – top work people, thank you.
