RMC NEW RECRUITS AND POSTS VACANT  – We are delighted to welcome back Jill Harker to the RMC team (after quite a few years!) as our new Scott Trial Treasurer.  We are still looking for a new Scott Trial Programme Editor, so if you are interested or know anyone who might be, please email our Scott Trial Secretary at scottsecretary@richmondmotorclub.com

We are pleased to announce that our new President is Paul Astwood and our new Chairman is Simon Williamson, who has stepped up from Vice Chair.  Andrew Swainston has taken on the supporting role of Vice Chair and Nathan Stones is going to become one of RMC’s directors.  We are  very happy to welcome some new faces onto the RMC committee as post holders and helpers,  as some of us longer standing members (we’ll refrain from saying older!) are wanting to ease off on duties.  Thank you to all those outgoing post holders for all your hard work.   We are currently in the midst of recruiting some new post holders for administration, treasurer and secretarial duties.  We are very excited to have interest from some lovely ladies who are already involved in the trialing world and are going to be a real asset to the Club.  Watch this space for updated news on our new recruits.

We still have the post of RMC Minutes Secretary vacant and need more people coming forward to offer help with Sports Secretary roles still vacant.  If you are interested in helping out with any of these roles, which could be job shared, please email secretary@richmondmotorclub.com.  If you feel you can help out in any way at all, please do get in touch.  For any Club to continue successfully it needs fresh faces to join in and help and also younger members to step up and get involved with the organisation side.  You won’t be thrown in at the deep end, you’ll be shown how to do a job and will have plenty of support.

Richmond Motor Club continues to go from strength to strength and we very much look forward to working with our new team members.

A full set of results will be available as soon as possible.

As always we would like to thank all those who made this year’s trial happen – too many to mention – but especially the landowners without who’s permission we couldn’t run the greatest one day trial in the world and the observers who stood out in such atrocious weather! The results team had a tricky time this year with very wet books and stuck together pages, thank goodness waterproof paper was invented!!  Special thanks must also go to all the riders and supporters who make the trial such a great event and help us to raise so much money each year for the Scott Charities.
