To one and all, In Conclusion.

With great satisfaction I want to thank the volunteers.

As we all understand putting on any event especially a trial, cannot be done by one person.
In our case we had a very dedicated energetic group spread out over time, mostly due
to covid restriction in the last two years.

It did benefit the course and in the end the competition, as we spent longer with careful
thought to the sections and Woody’s property. Especially the Orchids on section 5,
you may or may not have noticed they were taped off and protected with logs too.

The work parties included in no particular order, just as they sprung up in the old grey matter.
The chainsaw guys Chris Price , Randy Rhem and David Percival aka Woody.
The brush and log movers, Dave Morrow, Bruce Gossen, Lars Larson and Shaun O’Reilly.

All did a wonderful job as the piles of brush around the course can attest, those piles now make good cover for wildlife and protecting young trees to replace the dead cut down ones.

On the admin side.
Pat Southam and Neil Carter were great sounding and advisory persons when I needed propping up.
You all met the wonderful John Price and Kathleen Price at Sign-In.
A big thanks to them for staying all day propping up myself between different aspects I dealt with.

If I have missed anyone please forgive me as I am getting long in the tooth!

Lastly I would like to take this opportunity to thank the riders as it doesn’t happen without you.
I hope they all enjoyed themselves and will join us again in the future.
Kindest regards to all for making my life all the richer.

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.
