** 2022 MEMBERSHIPS are now Available ** Get them in ASAP.
Greetings to All & Many thanks to everyone who attended our AGM yesterday.
A brief overview was given by myself covering the main events of our 2021 race season. Covid disrupted the start of our season but it did not take away from a terrific season of racing & excellent banter. We run quite a few of our meetings this year closed to Club Members due to Covid etc . This may be carried over to next year so get your Membership ASAP. !!!
A massive thanks to all our Sponsors, without your support & backing none of this would have happened, so thanks to you all, your support is very much appreciated.
Also a big shout out as well to you the Riders who came along & served up some fantastic racing & banter as always.
The currently elected committee were re-elected along with some new additions also joining the Cartel. We welcome the following to the committee : Robbie Allan & Peter Greenwood .
We also presented a full audited breakdown of the Clubs 2021 financial records.
As with everything at moment & with all costs rising over the last year I can confirm that there will be a very slight increase of £5 to the 2022 IOPD Annual Race Licence. ( That is our only increase ! )
Just to confirm our Club Membership & Race Entry fees will all remain the same for next year, which can only be good moving forward for 2022.
Membership & Licence = £50. Race Entry £40 :
2022 Club Membership & IOPD Annual Licence are now available to download from http://www.scottishtwinshock.com If you want to keep your current Race number please send them in asap.
We will have 8 different race venues for the 2022 Racing Calendar with something to suit everyone . Some old favourites as always and also a return to the racing calendar will be Tinto. Some of you may have raced there before so we are delighted to welcome this venue back to our Race Calendar !!
The very popular Hawick venue is again there for 2022 & Also we will be revisiting the iconic venue of Kilmartin home of Scotland’s only World GP MX ( a work party is required for this venue, tbc in the new year ) as well as all our regular race venues .
We would like to thank all land owners for allowing the Twin Shock Club to come along and Race our bikes & as always we need to ensure we clear up all our rubbish after each event to ensure we can be invited back.
We cannot stress highly enough the importance of removing all litter !!
Our Clubman Class continues to be a tremendous success, and the committee have confirmed that the top 3 Riders from the Clubman Class for 2021 will now be moving to a different class for 2020. Congratulations & well done to these guys. There are also a couple of other Riders who have been deemed too quick who will also be moving. Remember if you have finished in the top 6 any of any of our senior championship classes or if you are just too quick you are not eligible for this class. Again this will be monitored.
*** All our current registered Clubman & Novice riders will have priority to re-register or register for this Class until 1/1/22 . As places are limited you will have first option until 1st January. After that we will open it up to all until we have reached max capacity for this Class.***
We have also removed the option of being able to just register for the Novice Class from the Membership Form as it was clear not all who entered this Class were actual Novices. However we will still accept Novices as we want to encourage new racers into our Club so this will be confirmed by myself or a Committee Member. If you are a Novice please contact us direct. We will be encouraging & monitoring their progress !!
To those riders who finished in the top 6 of your respective class & were unable to make the Dance & Trophy evening we will keep your trophy for you.
We have some new Transponders available if anyone is looking for one.
