Looking Ahead

Well – it’s been a while!

We hope all our supporters are well and adjusting to the ‘new normal’. We managed to resume training towards the end of the summer and concentrated on having some fun while getting used to adhering to all the new guidelines. Luckily for us, we train outdoors and the nature of our activity involves a natural social distance, so it hasn’t been too challenging to operate effectively.

The kids were thrilled to get back on their bikes and enjoyed the novelty of a summer airfield – we don’t usually train during show season so this was definitely a year of firsts. Although that may make the biting February coastal winds feel ever sharper…

Right now, we are in the transition period between the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Our new committee has been voted in and members are familiarising themselves with their roles. We have said some sad goodbyes to those who are moving on (check out our social media for our celebration of some awesome riders) and look forward to welcoming some new faces.

We have plenty to update you on over the coming months and can’t wait to get started. Our diary is open for 2021 and we will be considering it our 40th year after losing out on the celebrations due to lockdown.

Keep checking in for updates and we hope to see you in the not to distant future!

Times Like These

We find ourselves in extremely challenging times. Times we cannot control, have no experience of, and struggle to predict.

As a club, we held off announcing show bookings once the uncertainty of the Coronavirus outbreak set in. We hoped, both parents and riders, that the predictions weren’t accurate. But now we find ourselves watching the plans we made crumble, just as we know you are too.

We are incredibly sad that our 40th year is not going to be as expected. And we know that times may get tough for us, as a voluntary organisation. But right now, all that matters is our health. All of our health.

So while we accept the fear and sadness that is inevitable, we want to spend the foreseeable future keeping spirits up and bringing some light relief in difficult times. Our social media channels will reflect this, and our team will (remotely!) be looking at 2021 as the new 2020, and our new 40th.

We wish all our supporters the best, that you stay well and in touch with those people and things that you love. And, if we all work together – the party on the other side will be the biggest any of us have ever known.

With that party in mind, our 2021 diary is now officially open – we want to bring you ALL some of the unique joy that this team has been spreading for four decades. Together we are better!
