It’s been another good year for the club. We’ve had some fantastic successes, none more so than our triumph at the British Championships where we proudly brought home the plaque for Divisional Champions of Div 17. Whilst this may seem a long way from Div 1, this was huge for us considering the year before we came last, struggling to complete a run! Div 17 put us in the top third of the divisions and we all had a wonderful 3 days.
As a club we’ve said goodbye to several members who have left for one reason or another, as always we wish them the best of luck with their new clubs and look forward to meeting and racing them next season. We would like to welcome our new members and hope you will be with us for a long time to come and enjoy the Delta experience.
Through the ups and downs of the year we have grown as a club and have come out the other side very much stronger and experienced, in and out of the ring. It’s great to know we have such loyal members. Training on our new Belgium box is going brilliantly and we have another one on order which will be with us in the New Year.
Huge thanks go to Karl Lacey who has not only designed and put together our fantastic website he has also built us a complete set of jumps. Our thanks must also go to Rob Tyler for taking on the lead with training and for giving up his time to go to the Rocket Relay seminar.
