This year’s Canadian National Trial will be held on Saturday & Sunday, Oct 2nd & 3rd, 2021 in Arden, Ontario.

Hopefully you have already marked this date in your calendar. If you have decided not to ride, or perhaps you are only riding one day, then please consider volunteering to help at the event. Many riders in Ontario have already enjoyed 8 events this year without being called on to help, so now is the time to step-up and lend a hand.

You don’t need to be a current rider, perhaps you have enjoyed trials events in the past, and would like to give back to the sport. Well we can certainly use your help, as well as family and friends.

Please email atatrials@gmail.com

NOTICE to all competitors who are planning on participating in our upcoming two day fall trial on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula (October 16-17).

Please be aware that as far as we know, all campgrounds in our area will most likely be closed after Thanksgiving. We may possibly be able to accommodate a couple of small rigs in our expanded driveway, depending on size, but we would prefer to leave it available for participant parking on the days of the event so as to avoid road parking. Bryan Marshall has been able to accommodate a few campers in the past and he has indicated that he may be able to do so again this time but also feels it might be better served as participant parking for the event.

Having said all that, there is a lovely campground at Cape Croker, a short distance from the trials site. We have spoken to the administrator who has said that if there is enough interest, they would be willing to extend their season beyond Thanksgiving. We encourage you to pursue this option as they would need to know as soon as possible. Talk amongst yourselves and see if you can come up with a plan. You can find contact information and campsite information on their website: capecrokerpark.com.

If you are looking for motel accommodations, you can try:

  • Lion’s Head Beach Motel
  • Spirit Rock Motel
  • Shenstone Motel
  • Waterview on the Bay Motel
  • Mile End Motel
  • Mum’s Motel
There are others that you can Google search, but because some of our riders paid out a hefty amount of cash in Wiarton in July, it might be a good idea to try these ones listed first. And there is also a number of Bed and Breakfasts in the area. Hope this helps!

And, if we don’t see you before our trial, we have belated prize money to hand out to the top three riders in each class.

Cheers from,
Elaine and Clive
ECTA
