Thank you to Mike Thomson for hosting the Canal Classic ‘Fun-in-the-sun’ Round 1 of the 2021 ATA series.

Acknowledgements:

  • Setup: Mike Thomson ..days turned into weeks turned into months, and then the C-19 reschedule delay. Obviously a tremendous effort spent in clearing out 9 sections, and 5 different lines, as well as all the work with the NATC rules handouts.
  • Thanks to Ron Gamm for instructing the Novice and Junior riders.
  • Rider card deciphering by Helen & Joyce. Future Trials Schools will need to include an hour on rider card data entry and addition! (rant)
  • Contingency prizes supplied by: Team Montesa/Honda.
  • Special thanks to Land owners and Trail Coordinators: Niagara Timberline Riders, St. Lawrence Seaway Authority, City of Port Colborne, & Jungbunzlauer.

At this time with the current COVID-19 Stay-at-Home restrictions, we are unable to proceed with the Port Colborne event on June 13th, until the Roadmap to Reopen is implemented, and larger group gatherings are clarified.

Watch this space for the rescheduled date.

Cheers

Here are the final results for the ATA 2020 Series.

Special thanks to the series event organizers Dave Butler, Dave Cordy, Dave Southam, Clive & Elaine Barnes-Moss,
and their setup crews for all the extra effort involved in holding safe and socially distant events.

Personal thanks to those behind the scenes whose hard work too often goes unnoticed, including Joyce Butler, Helen Cordy,
Pat Southam, Elaine Mowry, and my very understanding, under appreciated support team of Theresa and Melissa, who spent countless hours with COVID-19 regulations, pre-entry forms, email reminders, and prompt results turnaround.

Thank you. NC
