NEWS AND COMMENT FINAL EDITION! This is the 220th printed Newsletter produced by the same team, typed organized and posted by Fiona, laid out and sent to Graham by Mike, HR thanks them and their contributions for all their work over the last 18 years or so. For a long time the Committee have been urging that we save costs by publishing it on the website, that will start next month. Direct savings like stamps, envelopes, printing and so on are important and will result in membership fees not increasing for a few years. But while we are doing this we set out to save a lot of time for those involved, to achieve this the content will be reduced by omitting the gossip and carachat sections, the clothing cupboard and the full trials report. A revised layout is being introduced which should provide all you need to know, here is the info that will be available on the website (much of this is already there) – we will work out the best format but you will still get all the essential information you need, and contributions will still be welcome! We have discussed this many times before and there a few opinions have been given either for or against, but not many, if you have a strong view on this, we’re always pleased to hear from you.

COMMITTEE MEETING – 12TH February Thanks to our regulars for attending, Dick, Ian, Mike, Adrian, Fiona and Graham K. New Venue Dick has managed to obtain a new bit of land at Kingsfold for 2 trials per year. The current plan is to change to Kingsfold for April and August – we have to fit in with the dates that are available – so the please see the dates sheet at the back of the Newsletter with these updates. Training Trials As agreed previously we will run a training trial at Northlands in April – if we get a good turnout we will think about another one in June or later in the year – these haven’t always been well attended but are happy to run if we get the numbers. Kit We have some new punches and everything else OK at the moment Working Party We had planned a working party in March, however due to recent weather we think this should be postponed, there are some areas to clear especially at Mannings Heath, so will discuss again at AGM and maybe schedule for drier times. Any Other Business West Sussex County Times – Ian has a contact who is willing to do a write up for Horsham Riders – so he will liaise – we’ll let you know when published – you may even get your photo in the local press! Newsletter – This will be the last monthly Newsletter sent out by post – as mentioned before all info will be on the website, seems sensible in the current day and age with postage costs rising etc. We will still welcome contributions are keen to maintain the club atmosphere. We hope to publish one colour edition at the end of each year to include ladder, photos, articles etc and a summary of the years’ trials.


Teams – Teams list will be on the website (but we will not include phone numbers) so please keep this Newsletter which has all details – if you need to contact a member of your team and have lost the numbers, either give Adrian or Fiona a call and we’ll give you the number. AGM – 16th April at Ian McCulloch’s house – if you plan to come and don’t know where it is, please give Ian a call. FEBRUARY TRIAL – Manning Heath Thanks to Team Duggies for laying out in difficult conditions – luckily the weather was good on the day and we had a good turnout with 42 entries. Pete B was not so fortunate as he had a fall and injured his thigh, hope you’re better soon Pete – also unfortunate for Ian J who couldn’t start due to carb float, he donated his entry fee to Riders for Health, so thanks for that Ian. Rich Ellis moved up to Whites and was quite far behind, but makes a change from winning the Blues – when will Tom join him? Mike Hyden also now on whites did well to come 2nd (out of 3) but only 5 marks behind Andy Dudman which must be good. Nothing out of the ordinary on Blues – HR members – Tom H, followed by Tim and Graham K On Yellows Mick Dunstan managed to pip John Yardley for 1st place, and good to see both Kieran and Gordon finishing the trial – with no injuries this time. Half way scores around 40 which is just about right. Thanks to everyone who helped, the team and Adrian and Adam who helped clear up – and as usual Adrian was busy encouraging new members to join teams!
