AUGUST NEWSLETTER AGAIN 2015
Another great event this month , round seven at Tinto Park Moto ,Rigside was a cracker. I am not slagging our past meetings at this venue but i mnust say that last Sunday,s event was the best , the track was primed to perfection and a few small changes to the layout made for a very brilliant event. .Considering that the Kendal club clashed with our event this year our entry was up on previous visits to Tinto. On the subject of Kendal ,it has been reported back to us or me that a few people were spreading rumours at the Kendal event the we ,yes us had moved our date to clash with the Kendal event this year .

Well well well my old codgers ,that is round 6 done and dusted and what a super meeting it was. There were a few that welched at the thought of getting dirty but the true scramblers and hardy souls they are just got wired in and enjoyed themselves with great pleasure.The few rain showers throughout the day made for some spectacular riding skills and the large spectator contingent as always thouroughly enjoyed the first class action.

Well Well Well, what a start to this new exciting year of twinshock motocross.
After the cancellation of Tinto due damp patches (i bet a male stripper show doesn’t get cancelled due to damp patches) the committee worked franticly to reorganise an alternative venue. Vice Chairman Hoppy managed to pull a few strings and get his litterbug mate Craig Meechan to contact Jocky Fleming to contact myself to see if we could get the use of the Leuchars track. As luck would have it Leuchars was free, so at the last minute wee Jocky saved the day by giving us the use of the track.

TWINSHOCK NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2014
Well folkers that is another great meeting done and dusted, great weather and a super team running the event coupled with the best riders on the planet made for a cracking days racing at Leuchars last sunday. This event was rescheduled to leuchars as the original cardenden track had some internal issues and has been closed until further notice.
The racing was very exciting and super to watch, although the track cut up a wee bit during the day, all the true scramblers dealt with it without any problems, while the so called racers stood and watched like wet socks on a washing line. I saw a few classic diddies (as lugs calls them) spectating, I think they had a meeting among themselves to discuss the issue of bumps as they had never seen any before, the word in the paddock is that a big coup is on the cards at their agm, I await with bated breath to see the outcome, should be thrilling.
