Castleford Trial

2nd February 2002

Despite gales and heavy rain during the week leading up to this event, the gods certainly smiled down on us on the day. The clouds in the morning soon disappeared and before long it had turned into a nice sunny day. The ground conditions following all the rain made some of the going "interesting" and Mark Robson (Clerk of Course) had avoided using the woods at the far end too much as the chances of anyone making it back out again were pretty slim.
John Davies kindly stepped in at the last minute as scrutineer and Graeme Christie was volunteered to be the steward for the event.
The trial was well received and Mark, John, Graeme and all who marshalled are to be congratulated on a job well done and a great days trialling.
One of the messages I have received regarding the event was as follows, just to show that your efforts really are appreciated:

Just to say thank you to all concerned at the trial at Castleford. Stuart and I both enjoyed our first trial with YORC. I was extremely impressed with both Graeme and Ian for the way that they were helping and encouraging Michael in his 109. Apart from good humoured leg pulling no one seemed to care if you bottled out of any section as I did with the tree section. Mathew did warn me to take care, advice well recieved.
