      If you find that you cannot log in to the foums after the recent upgrade then please follow the "Forgot your password?" link and reset your password. You can reset it to what it was before and remember to check junk/spam folders if you do not receive the password reset email. As some users do not have up to date email addresses on their profiles, contact me if the reset email is not received. This problem is due to removing the membership management system from the equation. It is supposed to keep everything in sync, but it hasn't done for some users. The password reset bit only has to be done once.

Where are the crews riding?

For some reason the Mel Harrison sidecar national trial this weekend seems to lack interest in the sidecar fraternity despite the fact that a month ago the decision was taken NOT to run the event at Cockhill Mines, Greehow in the interests of safety. Cockhill is not exactly user friendly towards three wheelers.

An approach was made to Norman Shepherd at Fellbeck to stage the trial on his acres, to which Norman promptly gave the nod.

With a fine mixture of streams, woodland, rocks, and grassy climbs and gullies, wet and dry  over a lap distance of almost two miles all off road the venue is ideal being three miles from Pateley Bridge town centre.

Just TEN crews have entred, four from the isle of Man.

Mel Harrison is reluctant to cancel the trial because of intending Manx visitors.

Contact Mel asap on 01274 567047. The entries officially closed this morning but it is not too late to get on board.

There's a thought for all organisers in the above postings - get several nit-pickers to proof read all club documents, regs available, entry forms and the like BEFORE they are issued.... it may add a delay to the issuing - but it could also save lots of extra work later!
