Nationals Final Setup this Sunday 16th Sep

2018-09-16 08:30

On Sunday 16th September the final stages of setting the sections will take place.

This involves the marking of the sections with danger tape and the placing of the flags. Please assist Michael and Brian with this as it will go much quicker with help. It will also be useful to all riders to know where the sections are, as on the first day of the trial the help of a few local riders will be required to show observers to their section, as well as leading the different classes to their start section.
