Well where did 2023 go to? Another successful season behind us
Events have had mixed entry levels, some being slow to fill while others were over subscribed!
We as a committee have looked at the reasons but there appears to be no definite answer. Whether events come thick & fast doesn’t seem to matter, but if we want a full season this cannot be avoided

80 Entries, 34 class records were set with overall champion being David Wallace in his MX5

83 entries, 21 class records were set with overall champion being Stuart Sugden in his GWR Raptor

A good turnout for the AGM & committee meeting allowed us to get most matters sorted. We welcomed our new eligibility Scrutineer  Neil Ritchie & Assistant coordinator  Gary Warren I’m sure both will be a great benefit to SSHC & competitors with their considerable knowledge & enthusiasm for the sport

September Boyndie saw the introduction  of our first Junior Sprint competitor Euan Bruce hopefully he will encourage many more to come along in the future.

October Kames also set a record by all accounts seeing the youngest & oldest sprint competitors in Scotland competing at the same event. Congratulations Euan Bruce & Mike Murchie

The cost of events is going to be challenging in 2024 with clubs struggling to break even with the increased costs involved, Doctors, Rescue, MSUK fees, etc, etc!!

Entry fees will need to increase moderately to cover these!

I’m sure you’ll agree Clubs are not looking to make profit but costs do need to be covered

Awards dinner dance is being held on Saturday 2nd December at the Woodlands Hotel Dundee, a good night guaranteed so hope to see you all there
