The Moto Dynamics Beta Blackwood 2 Day Trial once again held on the June long weekend, Sunday the 3rd and Monday the 4th of June 2018, in Kirup at Wringes Farm and McCorkel Farm.
A word from Frank and the Committee:
Well that time has come again. Our club look forward to this event, it’s big, time consuming, hard work but is all worth it. The event has been organised by the club since near the beginning of the Pathfinder Trials Motorcycle Club, which was back in 1975.
The Blackwood 2 Day started in areas of Kirup but has been at the Wringes Farm for a long time. Many thanks to the Wringe family for the use of their fantastic farm, better known as Castledine, for many years. Please make an effort to talk to Mick or James, they very nice people, they they listen to the club members and really like a chat.
We will also be using Lazy G Farm better known as Gary McCorkel, it's a funny funny how the club got to use Gary's farm. The committee told James that they had cut and burnt logs in this "new" paddock that the sections were set in, not realising it wasn't Wringes Farm!!
James had to make a quick phone call to his neighbour at Lazy G Farm and the club have had use of it ever since. We are very fortunate as it has been a terrific farm and a great addition to the event.
To get there head to Donnybrook. You will need to stop at IGA as Kirup shop and servo are shut. Kirup is about 16 km south; turn right at Kirup pub-which serves nice meals but you will need to book. Pass the school and church stay on sealed road for 5 km and you will start heading down windy hill, the shearing shed is on left. Open to campers Friday night on. Bring some warm clothes or a close friend!
The way it's looking at the moment means it will be damp for the event as grass is growing well and as Luke and I found the creeks are running. Luke and myself have been out there for two weekends got 15 sections sorted with some good new ground, with two chainsaws going on Sunday.
Last year the Intro class was so good with a record of number of riders and this year but Santa has been so the junior class will be big as well.
Luke has sorted the hill climb, the new spot looks good-you can’t see the top and there is mud, water and more black mud. The sidecars will need to lock their diffs on that 3 wheel, but for the most part of it will be a whole lot of fun.
Many thanks to our sponsor Moto Dynamics who have supplied medals which are up for grabs after day two. Simon and Neil Price have always been very supportive of the Blackwood 2 Day Trial, which we appreciate.
Our ride off will at the airstrip paddock, bring fuel as it will have a big lap.
Many thanks to those who have offered help and support for this event.
