All the Fell Side members who entered the MCC Exeter Trial were awarded medals. Congratulations to Hal Branson who won Gold and just missed the class award by 0.01 second on the Observed Tests. Coongratulations also to Tony Branson and Derek Reynolds who both won Bronze Awards.
The Clee Hills Trial on the 24th January will see Fell Sider entries from Will & Lucy Lines (Marlin), Tony Branson/Eric Gordon (Marlin), Derek Reynolds/Clive Stephenson (Suzuki X-90). Carol & Fred Mills along with grandson Alexander Jefferson will be marshalling on Strefford Wood 1 (classes 7&8) and Rattlinghope Observed Test (all classes).
In the meantime preparations for the Northern Trial are progressing. The second batch of flooding caused one of the bridges we use to be closed indefinitely, so a revised route has been devised. One of the sections we hoped to re-introduce after repair has been completely washed out and another less important section has a tree, the size of a small house, blocking it. However, we will still have fourteen very competitive sections and the new spectacular views from the hilltops.
