Sunday, I drove down to Peachland to meet up with Shane for a ride - unfortunately the weather wasn’t like Saturday, and I got pretty cold - mainly because I didn’t dress correctly - even so it was great to get out in the fresh air on the new 2019 Beta Evo 200.  - Shane got some good practice in, and I was impressed with how he has improved over the past year.

Results from the Ontario Trial from Sunday - Looks like another great entry. From what I have seen of the photographs from their events, they cater to a wide variety of classes, using old style natural sections ( lots of mud)

As we head into the Christmas season -  it’s time to put together the Trials Calendar for 2019 - Applications for any WTC Sanctioned event, can be sent to me - and obviously the earlier we get these date the better, as we always seem to have to make changes. ( Plus we now have a short season due to Forest Fires)
The only Trial date that doesn’t change in our area, is the Outlaw Trial - which always goes on the May long weekend - Started in 1987, this is perhaps one of the most popular events of the year.

The Outlaw Series has also been quite a success  story- and for 2019, it will once again kick off with round one at Ioco -in April - ( We always sponsor this one for the CPTA)

One important  topic we need to settle - is what we want to do about having a Classic Series - This is Huge in Europe and while we had a lot of success in the early years of our Outlaw  by hosting this as the first day Trial - interest declined a couple of years ago, but I believe this could be revived, with maybe a connecting series with both the CPTA and the ATRA in Alberta.

Anybody with thoughts on this can shoot me an email.
