Shieldsberg Winter Series Round 1

Shieldsberg Winter Series Round 1

Ok folks!!

We are ready!

The guys were out in the torrential rain this morning and afternoon marking the sections out for tomorrows trial.

The Shieldsberg Rodeo at Landscape Supplies yard directly across the road from the Trial Park.

The full address is 274 Bangor Road Newtownards Newtownards, Co Down BT23 7PH for those of you that have not been there before.

Remember too that as the trial is on tomorrow, the park is not open.

The trial as usual caters for all grades in adult and youth classes on a main course and a small course for the D and  E riders.

We will also have the try trials bike there for anyone who wants to bring a child along to see if they would like to take up the sport.

Unfortunately due to the tightness of the venue we will not have the practice option that we usually have at other events.

As the venue is so tight in the main yard I would ask that all riders park carefully and considerately and please also remember that we are using the yard with the kind permission of Mr Shields, so be mindful of where you park and do not ride over any of the stockpiles of stones and soil.

The event starts at around 11am, once all safety checks have been completed and the observers are at the sections.  We are delighted that the local Sea Cadets are coming and giving their time up to observe, but we will also be offering riders that bring an observer a free entry too.

While it was a terrible day weather wise, it is supposed to be better tomorrow, but as we’ve said before rain doesn’t worry us!!!

The club also has a ‘open to club members night this coming Monday evening at the Londonderry Park rooms in Ards, stat time 7.30pm for anyone who wants to come along and hear whats going on of voice an opinion.

See you all in the morning!!!
