Slab Common RTV and Drive Round **Cancelled**

Unfortunately the planned RTV and Drive Round at Slab Common on the 15th October has been cancelled due to land withdrawl. The Club are seeking a new venue, but this would only cater for the RTV trial and not the Drive Around.
Apologies for the short notice, but we do run this risk when using Army land for combined events.

UPDATE: We are unable to secure an alternative venue with the Land Agent. Sadly this event has been cancelled

Hook End Summer Rally

Slab CommonThe weather was glorious at this year’s Summer Rally. Saturday kicked off with a Tyro; 6 competitors in all, 2 of which were unlicensed. Scoring was very low with Claire Norman storming to victory on all clear, with Elliott Norman just missing out on an all clear round scoring 1 on the last section. Jess Lamport was also running clear in her SWB series until a 2 on the last section dropped her out of contention.

Saturday afternoon we were treated to the gymkhana. A fun driving event that this year included vehicle seesaw, trials section in a reverse steer Discovery, trailer reversing, extreme croquet, off road canoeing, Discovery based wrecking ball and blindfold trials section.

Sunday we had the RTV with the boys & girl’s own trophies up for grabs. The Club welcomed members of Southern Counties Offroad with 5 making the trip over. The usual suspects were running very low numbers all day. Neville Dewdney was just pipped to top spot by Jack Dewdney, a replay of 2015 event. Hannah McMillan won the girls own in her Class 10 90.

After a hard day’s trialling, the members relaxed in a great atmosphere with a club sponsored BBQ, where everyone came together to chat about the weekend. Stories were exchanged around the campfire well into the night.

Thank you to the Club for organising a great weekend of events. Special mention goes out to Mark Ambler for devising and building the Gymkhana activities and Matt Hewitt who set out some excellent sections in both Tyro and RTV.

Hope to see you all next year. Keep an eye on the calendar as this event is likely to move to the week before the Bank Holiday.

Summer Rally is fast approaching and our Chairman is busy with the welder creating new vehicle based activities for the Gymkhana. Please come along and show your support for the weekend activities. It would be great to see as many members as possible participate in what has become more an endurance test of farm engineering than a straightforward Gymkhana. The weekend also offers a BBQ after the Sunday RTV. Please not the TYRO will start at around 10am on the Saturday earlier than usual advertised times.
