"Velocette Motor Cycle Club"

The figure 8 course used, was 130 kilometres per lap and had to be negotiated with 2 laps on each day. Once again, this years event had changed format slightly from others where they did not ride at night.

Catering was once again done by the members of the Robertstown Football and Netball clubs and they were kept busy for most of the event.
This weekend is always a busy weekend for the Football Club, as they always conduct their "Annual Dinner Dance" on the Friday night before the Reliability Trial. The weekend is a good means of raising funds for them.
This year the communications were restricted only to the St John, SA Ambulance Course Controllers and Rescue personnel and no controls had radio/s at them, due to ACRM not being officially requested to cover the event.
Overall communications at times were very limited and not very successful. Hopefully next year this will improve immensely, as it is not very satisfactory when you compare the communications with other similar events.
The Eudunda Branch of the SA Ambulance Service crew a 4 Wheel Drive Ambulance and the Eudunda Division of St John Ambulance (Operations Branch) provide First Aid coverage at strategic controls with 4 wheel Drive vehicles. They also use their Camper Trailer at Main Control as a First Aid Unit to treat any one who may become sick or injured. Some assistance is supplied every year by several dedicated member of the other Divisions of St John.

Peter Herrimann from Eudunda, has done a very extensive Web Site on this years Event & if you are a Motor Cycle Trials Enthusiast, it is well worthwhile having a look at.
It has lots of News, Information & Photos.
