Please click here to goto the survey Thank you to all who responded, but if YOU haven’t taken the survey then we do still need YOUR input. Just a few simple quick questions to help shape the direction of ATA Trials. After 40 years we need some fresh faces and ideas:- …easier / harder / change the rules / section marking / trophies / fees / locations? YOUR comments are important. No point complaining if you don’t use your chance to make a difference.
