Thank you to Dave and Helen Cordy for hosting another great event.

The constantly changing weather leading up to the trial saw Dave standing out in the river building bridges, as the water level remained high and deceptively fast.

Perfect Trials weather on the the day for three loops of 12 sections, with a different set of fun filled sections for Day 2. 

Thanks to the Section set-up crew of Dave Cordy, Kevin Cordy, Rob Smithurst & Chris Snell.

Thank you to Dave, Helen and Daryl, for handling the bbq TDN fund raiser ..more corn still available on request!

Special mention to Helen for handling Sign-In, tyre raffle tickets, TDN donations ..and the usual late entry stragglers.
