We are always tinkering & adding new content so hopefully the site will keep you interested & informed.
The Wiltshire GLASS Representative, Dale Wyatt (He is also President of GLASS and Editor of GLASS Magazine) has requested the help of any DLRC members who would like to get involved in clearing some lanes in North Wiltshire.
I know that it is a long way to travel but if you could help he would be very grateful.
Dale has sent out invitations to other Land Rover Clubs bordering Wiltshire in the hope that this can be a ‘combined operation’.
The DLRC is an ‘Affiliated’ member of GLASS and so if you would like to volunteer please contact DALE WYATT directly via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in anticipation on behalf of Dale.
Following our committee meeting the decision has been taken to open up our championship to members of other alrc clubs. Any points gained will be added to the list in the same way that our members are now. This will start on the first trial of the season at Bransgore in December.
It was strongly felt however that the system of clerk of the course (Coc) that we run has made a significant difference to the running & setup of trials & we didn’t want to loose that. From the start of the season, club members only will be allowed to Coc & will get awarded 10 points once they have also done one set up. No other setup points are available (as per the Agm).
Hopefully this will encourage more drivers at our trials, which can only ever be a good thing.
Calling ALL trialers. …
At the Agm there was a proposal to allow other club’s members to enter our championship league. The thought being that it would give them more incentive to come to more of our trials. The decision was made to defer judgement to the committee.
We have a meeting this coming Thursday so I need your input urgently if you have any thoughts on the matter.
My feelings are that it would boost numbers which we desperately need. We’re all members of the Alrc which gives us the ability to trial with any other Alrc club. Our championship however has only ever been open to dlrc members, most probably because it was deemed that it only interested our own members.
Currently anyone who wants to enter our league would need to pay for membership (despite already being a member of an affiliated club). However, there is potentially to make more from trial income than the current membership fee!
Putting the money aside for a while, the biggest issue would be with our “rule” that ALL drivers who want to enter the championship must do 1 clerk of the course & at least 1 set up. This would pretty much preclude any other clubs from entering. Ok so why not drop this? Simply because it has really worked to get more drivers actually involved in the running of the trials.
Somerset and Wilts lrc currently allow other clubs to enter their league & have a similar rule with having to coc (I think!) Although their points for doing so are slightly different.
So I guess my question is. …. If the necessity to do coc was dropped but you still got your 10 points, would you still do it?
This is the only way I can see to make this work but obviously we still need help with running the trials. We’d still have a small advantage from the 10 points, so there’s no merit in joining another club just to avoid having to coc (yes it was mentioned! ).
Could you please email me at email@example.com with any comments, feeling or suggestions. Thanks Rog.
URGENT NOTICE REGARDING THE AGM – The day/date given in the latest issue of the magazine for the AGM (p 7 – Dates for Your Diary) is – to say the least – confusing. It should read FRIDAY 6th October – all the other details regarding time and venue are correct (and to be fair, the correct combination of day and date, i.e. Friday 6th October – appears on four other occasions in the issue!)
