Exeter Trial

The Exeter Trial 2018
Once again the MCC have asked us to look after Tipley Hill on the Exeter Trial on Saturday, 6th January 2018. This is one of the best Club events of the year, that for the last while has been run by a stalwart band of Club members from as far afield as Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The Club turnout has been magnificent in recent years. For this year we definitely need all who came last year and if possible a few more. Our task now includes marshalling Lenda Lane between our hill, Tipley, and the previous hill, Simms.

The hill is map reference 1 91 /795758, or for the orthographically challenged, Exeter/M5, continue on A38 until the A382 junction (Bovey Tracey). Follow signs from the junction on minor roads to Liverton. Go through Liverton on the road to llsington and Tipley will be found on the right after 3/4 mile. We will be setting up from about 9.30am. We’ve had freezing days, wet days, very wet days, warm days and sunny days on this event. It can be quite hard work at times humping and heaving cars that fail the hill, but always fun and certainly gets you moving after the New Year. Bring something to eat, warm clothing, boots and a torch is always useful as we are usually clearing up in the winter gloom. We need about 10 or so people depending on how things work out. Please do try and make it, early notification of likely attendees would be useful as I have to guarantee to the MCC that I’ve got the manpower. Contact Graham Skillen or Peter Weale (details to be found elsewhere) if you want to stay over on Saturday for the MCC Club Supper.
