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 .

MARCH 2015 NEWSLETTER
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.
