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!

A new era… or is it?

Wow! Welcome to our wonderful new website, built for us by the fantastic Rob Francis. Rob recognised the work we do as a non-profit and wanted to help us out. We are immensely grateful to local business for supporting us in this way. Simply put, it means more cash for our chosen charities (more on that subject soon) – everyone’s a winner!

2020 is our 40th year in the business. This landmark achievement is brought to you by four decades of children and parents, giving up their time and money to make the club a renowned name. We (the current parents) are merely here to act as guardians for the club. We know that this responsibility isn’t only to our children, but to those of the next 40 years and hopefully beyond. The club has given so much to so many over the decades, we can’t wait to look back through history and share it with you as we go… So it’s fair to say we look back, but we also look forward. And in celebration of such an impressive record, it felt right to update the website and work hard on our social media – we are really proud of the changes.

And so yes, in some ways we are entering a new era. But we also hold the club’s heritage in high esteem and will keep bringing the crowds what they expect from us – exhilarating displays packed full of fun for all the family. We will keep letting our riders pick and vote on the season’s charitable causes, and work as hard as ever to raise as much as we can for them. If it ain’t broke, and all that…

So for now, grab yourself a cuppa and take a look around the website. Meet the awesome 2020 team, ask us a question, even book us for your event. Pop your details into the contact form and we’ll get right back to you. And then whatever you do stay with us, because in 2020 the Tigers’ roar is going to be louder than ever before.
