The Stratford club will have a stand specifically concerning the Colmore Cup trial which is the oldest trial in the current calendar.

The club would welcome any information relating to the Colmore, especially old programmes or news paper clippings. If anyone has anything of interest, please bring it along to the show, if you have something which you want to keep, the club would appreciate the chance to take a look and maybe make a copy.

There is some debate as to the number of Colmores which have been run. The trial is approaching it's 100th aniversary but due to wars, f&m and other cancellations, it's believed that there have actually only been 80 or so events, so any information which would confirm this would be really appreciated.

Finally, there will be some excellent Colmore machines and trophies on show, but one is missing. It's the Cranmore Cup awarded to the runner up in the Colmore. It's disapeared fairly recently, so if anyone has it please bring that one along to the show and make Wrighty a very happy man!

I hope to see you there.

Missing- The Cranmore Cup.

The nice weather obviously helped the show. I was amazed at the number of people appearing to have great success selling rusty parts of old bikes around the outside of the main halls.

A good day out.

Here's a shot of the Stratford Club Colmore history stand.

No I didn't bump into Alan all afternoon, but I did get a snap of Ron Langstons combo complete with a new light weight sidecar passenger :banana2:

According to my information,the first Colmore was run in 1911 and was won by W.D.South riding a Scott.

So we know when the Colmore is 100 years old, what is slightly less certain is how many trials have been held. According to our records it is around 80 however we can't find any information about the 1973 event won by P.Dunkley on an Ossa.

M.Andrews won in 1972, there was no trial in '74 and M.Rathmell won in 1975. Any info on '73 welcome.
