Largo Trials – 15th May 2022

*** EVENT CANCELLED ***
Due to insufficient entries, we have taken the decision not to run this event.

A minimum entry offers fairness to landowners, competitors and officials alike, and we were below the threshold for this event.

==========================================================

The first event this year will be at Largo, which is a massive hit with everyone that attends, offering some breathtaking scenery whether it’s over the Fife countryside or out onto the Firth of Forth.

With 3 completely different areas on the site ; “valley” “ski-slope” and “plateau”, we are able to offer you a good range of challenging sections throughout the day, usually finishing off with a trip to the trig point for a photo opportunity.

Trials Guide

Early registration is encouraged, as there will be an absolute deadline of 72hrs  before the event, to allow us to make a decision whether the event runs based on a minimum number attending.

Officials, in any capacity, will also need to register in advance.

If you wish to compete, you must have a valid club membership which can be obtained online via Join SORC and also have a valid RS Clubman Licence which can be obtained free via RS Clubman Licence

Both of these will be checked against the membership database upon receiving your online entry and declaration form.

Access will only be available from 0900hrs with the view to starting promptly at 0930hrs.

Any help from competitors in setting up is always appreciated, not only allowing you a bit of extra driving time, but you can actually learn a lot too…

Remember to bring your own packed lunch, and sensible clothing/footwear for the weather on the day.

Extraordinary General Meeting Agenda

Please find attached the Agenda for the E.G.M which is this Sunday, along with the original Notice of E.G.M.

It is highly advisable that if you are able, please do come along to the meeting in-person.

As much as we are going to try and make a hybrid meeting work, it may not work terribly well, due to lack of IT and conferencing equipment – but we will do our best with what is available.

A link for joining the meeting virtually will be sent out later on in the week.

There is an option afterwards to have an informal meal in the hotel, please let us know if this is something you may be interested in.

Monday 27th December – Cold Turkey

Time to get out into the fresh air and get the 4×4 engine warm for a Christmas treat and have fun and meet up with your fellow club members.

Open to all 4x4s of all levels of experience, whether road vehicles or off-road prepd.

Traditionally this event was a bunch of friends meeting up for a drive, however over the years, we have added in various twists along the way – and this year is no exception! Just because it’s Christmas, don’t think the setup team will be going easy on you though!

A bunch of escapees from the local farm are causing havoc and we’ve been requested to find them, and return them in exchange for a festive gift!

As an added bonus, there will be a variety of orienteering punches set up around the site, for you to attempt. You will be given a laminated card attached to your wing mirror, and upon finding a punch, you simply punch the corresponding box on the card – easy!!

Cost: £30 per vehicle plus £10 per additional driver (full DVLA licence)

Time: 10.00 for morning coffee and chat, ready to start at 10.30

Lunch: Bring your own packed lunch and enough warm drinks for the full day!

Finish: We generally finish mid-afternoon depending on weather and light conditions.

Directions: Postcode is TD1 2NR. There is a good track up to where we will be meeting for signing on and orange arrows will be visible as you come onto the site. Head for Galashiels on the A7 and you will pick up the orange arrows at the roundabout just North of Asda / Tesco and you want to be the B6374 Melrose Road.

W3W: speeding.reverses.builders

Amateur Radio: For those who have it, we usually use 145.350MHz if it’s free.

We recommend warm clothing, waterproofs, and if you have recovery or towing gear, that would probably be sensible given the time of year.

Sunday 19th December – Santa Hunt

As we approach the end of the year, the Annual Santa Hunt will this time take place at Hassockrigg.

We are lucky to be able to use such a site as this old shale bing, which is still relatively new to most our club members – and each time we go there is something different – whether that be new tracks created and opened up, or bigger ditches emerged after having Exercise Mudmaster through the site, it is always good fun, with lots of different areas to explore!

This is not a winch challenge or timed event, you will simply be enjoying yourself with some good off-roading whilst on the look out for Santa(s).

Any Santa that you do find, can be exchanged for edible prizes!

This is always a popular event, great to bring the kids and rest of the family out too… you WILL need the extra sets of eyes!

In addition to this, there will be a variety of orienteering punches set up around the site, for you to attempt. You will be given a laminated card attached to your wing mirror, and upon finding a punch, you simply punch the corresponding box on the card – easy!!

Cost: £30 per vehicle plus £10 per additional driver (full DVLA licence)

Time: 09.30 for morning coffee and chat, ready to start at 10.00

Lunch: Bring your own packed lunch and enough warm drinks for the full day!

Finish: We generally finish mid-afternoon depending on weather and light conditions.

Directions: exit the M8 at J5, through the staggered crossroads, follow the road towards Shotts, site is approx. 1 mile on your right hand side. Nearest Postcode is ML7 5TQ.

W3W: mission.blunders.sympathy (very apt for this event)
