As I am sure you are aware HQ will supply machine number cards FOC to event organisers. Only problem is that they only cover 1-100 so for larger events there is a problem as in the case of the Beamish Trophy Trial. Thanks to Greg Steer, who provided the pdf files to Tom Norman for the BTT, we now have them here for download for nunbers 101-200 & the letter M for marshals as required. The complete set is one pdf file and the relevant pages can be printed on to A4 250gsm cards (4 numbers to a card) and guillotined
The file which is in .zip format to save space can be downloaded here

As the weather was fine we got 12 new entries on the day, making a total of 28 which was remarkably good for this time of year. Mainly post war and post 60 machines with 2 vintage bikes; John Robinson on his 1929 Ariel and Martin Peacock on his 1922 AJS.
10.00 start from the Cricket Club after what I thought were simple questions but a few disagreed, the route took us through Over Dinsdale through the lanes to Osmotherley and over the hills to Hawnby to a quaint tea room for a short break for coffee (no Brian so not in the pub) and more questions from Dave Allison, but I got the blame again of course for them being too difficult. Then onwards through Helmsley and more back roads to Thornton Le Dale near Pickering for lunch as shown in the above photo, and two more sets of questions from Dave and Linda.
The run home was fairly direct, back through Pickering, over to Rosedale, up to Blakey, Westerdale, Kildale , Stokesley and back to the Cricket Club - which wasn't open,so some went to the pub!!
Anyway a good day was had by all - I think, and the results are here if you want to know your scores.
