This is a reminder that the purpose of setting up this meeting was,and still is, to provide an opportunity for members of our club, neighbouring clubs, and representatives of the organizations we are involved with, to come together and start a conversation about “The Direction of our Grass Roots Sport” and ways to come together to make its existing or new forms more attractive to both competitors and organizers.
Sorry that may sound a bit pompous, but it is clear from conversational comments and reports that there are problems with what we do now and we need to look at the future.
In early January I sent email invitations to as many local clubs, as I thought might be interested, whose emails were listed on the ASMC website, as well as to ACTC, BTRDA, MCC. I may have missed some people but I know word has also got around, and I hope as many of you as can will come to the meeting.
The Agenda is not yet fixed but will include:-
Cooperation between Clubs
Management of The Calendar
Age profiles of both competitors and Organizers
The costs of competing
New types of Events

One a bright note our Launceston Trial this Sunday in Lew and Eastcott Woods ( Map Ref 201/ 461846) has an entry of over 40, which is great for a non championship event.
If You have not entered come along and Marshall. It is a great off road day out in the woods and the Burger Van will be there all day. We even have a swimming pool at the start for the Masochistic (don’t be tempted!)
