Scott Trial Charity Presentation Evening:

On Friday 7th April  at The Buck Hotel Reeth, The Scott trial charity donations were given out to many local recipients. The evening began with Treasurer Richard Hague giving a brief history of the Scott trial from its first running in 1914 up to its present day, Nigel Cummins, Richmond Motor Club President, then presented the cheques to the various charities, a number of which explained how the money would be spent.

A total of £10,975.00 was  given out this year, which included £3,475 raised by a charity team at the trial, for The Mark Adams Trust.

Many thanks to all who help and sponsor the trial, far too numerous to mention, and thoughts now turn to this years event which is on 21st October 2017. An excellent buffet then followed and one recipient (Mary Lovell MBE) even had a sit on a bike !!!!

We would like to thank all the landowners, tenant farmers, gamekeepers, observers, caterers & sponsors without whom, as always, the trial could not run.  Also the 3 Day Team (too numerous to mention) including the Clerks of the Course and their assistants, for all working so hard to make the weekend run smoothly.  Many thanks as well to all the riders for entering, taking part and making the journey from near and far.

Finally many congratulations to Jonathan Richardson on winning the Cliff Addison Trophy, Phil Houghton on winning the first Reeth 3 Day Green Course and Allan Richardson for winning the Clubman Course.
