2017 Black Tie Ball and Presentation Evening – tickets now on sale!

Tickets are now available for this year’s Black Tie Ball & Presentation which will once again include our Farmers Dinner (Invitations to our much appreciated Farmers & Landowners are in the post!)

In previous years the club have subsidised the on sale dinner tickets, but sadly are not in a position to do so this year and, therefore, the tickets will be at full price of £50 each which is still great value as these will include:

  • Welcome glass of fizz,
  • Dinner of:  Confit Duck & Cranberry Terrine,  Roast Beef & Yorkshire Puddings, White Chocolate & Vanilla Crème Brule followed by Coffee & Petit Fours
  • Bottles of wine on each table.
  • RMC Annual Adult Presentation of Awards
  • Dancing until 1 am.

Tickets can be booked in tables of 10, 8 or individually.  Please fill in and return this form  2017 Dinner Dance Flyer with your payment to avoid disappointment for what will be a great evening to celebrate another year of Richmond Motor Club Trials and thank our Landowners, Farmers and Gamekeepers for their continued support.

SCOTT TRIAL – NEWS FROM THE CLERK OF THE COURSE

With the run up to the Scott Trial, Paul Robinson Clerk of the Course, and his assistants have now assessed and plotted the route and sections, new and old. This year the route will run in reverse, with the underfoot conditions ‘good to wet’, add in the bonus of a dry break in weather leading up to the big day, and conditions are perfect for the event.

With this in mind, Paul reminds all riders to stick to the flags and not deviate. Spectators, remember to abide by all signs and information given in the souvenir programme and on the Richmond Motor Club website. This will ensure everyone has a great day!

With yet another full entry, and the expectation of large crowds, it promises to be an exciting, high octane event with the possibility that any one of your favourite riders can take home the Alfred Scott Memorial Trophy.

The other prestigious award is for those riders aiming to set Standard Time, watch out for Jonathan Richardson, Billy Bolt, James Stones and John Sunter to name a few who are all on a mission.

All that’s needed now is a ‘nod from the Gods’ to supply the weather!
