Quiz Night & Prize Giving

Date: 22-Jan-2018
After the success of last year's quiz night and prize giving we have decided to do it all over again! If you were with us last year you'll already know what a great evening of entertainment, laughter and the odd bit of cheating we had. Our very professional quiz hosts Pete and Catherine are back again this year to try and ensure fair play with quiz rounds to test all types of knowledge even the kids get their own round. We have some terrific prizes this year with Barry Sheene books and tickets for an Evening with James Toseland up for grabs.

All club members and their families are cordially invited along and best of all it's totally free! Even the half time buffet is thrown in for nothing. The details you need are as follows, Where: Newmachar Golf Club, When: Saturday 3rd February 2018, Time: 7 for 7:30pm. If you would like to come along then please let club secretary Di Stuart know before the 31st of January please so we can get the numbers right for the catering. You can get her by e-mailing di@bamcc.co.uk or telephone 01569 763025.

Hope to see as many of you as possible on the night and good luck with the quiz.


Dates for 2018

Date: 28-Dec-2017
Like every other club in Scotland we are at this moment in time awaiting championship and national trials dates from the behemoth that is the SACU as without them we cannot set our club trial dates. The reason for this is simply that permits will not be issued on championship dates or where obvious clashes occurs. We have however pencilled in the first three club trial dates and while round one is a certaintity the other two remain provisional at this time. The enduro dates are set in stone even if the locations aren't quite a done deal just yet. We will update you just as soon as we have any further news.

Annual General Meeting

Date: 09-Dec-2017
Yep it's the one you all haven't been waiting for! It's a necessary evil I'm afraid and we are obliged to have every year. Wednesday 13th December is the date, The Broadstraik Inn, Westhill is the venue and the starting time is 7:30pm. Free tea, coffee and biscuits are provided at half time to allow you to wet your whistles after all the talking and to get you in good shape for the second half. Seriously though it's important that you come along and have your say on how your club is being run.

Craiglash Fun Day

Date: 09-Dec-2017
The Craiglash fun day scheduled for Sunday 10th December is ON!! Amazingly enough there is snow at Craiglash and it's all looking good. If anything changes overnight we'll post first on our Facebook page. Saturday 9th December @ 20:30

And we have a British Champion!

Date: 29-Oct-2017
I'm sure the whole of the Bon Accord club would like to join us and congratulate club member Daryl McCall on his fantastic achievement of becoming the 2017 British Supermoto champion in the Evo class. Held over 9 rounds with only one being run in Scotland at Crail, Daryl's efforts and dedication have paid off big time. We must also mention the efforts of Daryl's better (looking at least) half Anne Savage who ended the year with a splendid third place finish in the Pit Bike class. Congratulations to you both.


Enduro results from 24th September

Date: 29-Sep-2017
The results from the enduro held in Drumtochty Forest near Fettercairn are now available on the Events 2017 page. The concenus seems to be that this was a great new event and a wortwhile addition to the rota of Scottish Enduro venues. We would like to thank our contacts at the Forestery Commission for allowing the use of this piece of excellent ground. In addition a big thanks to the Bon Accord team who helped set out the course (and take it down again), our timekeeping volunteers, our event secretary and caterer, we couldn't do it without you guys. Photos from the day can be found in the Gallery page.

Just a wee word of caution though. Just because the club has permission to use this forest for one weekend of the year does not mean you can use it for the rest of the year. The club continues to work in conjunction with the Forestery Commission and Police Scotland to catch and prosecute un-authorised riders. Irresponsible riding like this is probably the single biggest threat to our sport today. You have been warned.

Enduro entries now open for September 24th

Date: 25-Aug-2017
We are now taking entries for the sixth and final round of the Scottish enduro championship. We have a new venue this year at Drumtochty Forest near Fettercairn which brings it's own challenges so please read the instructions and entry form carefully before you fill them in. Look forward to seeing you there.


Committee Meeting 05/07/17

Date: 04-Jul-2017
The committee meeting planned for the evening of the 5th of July has been cancelled.

Team Trial 2017

Date: 22-May-2017
Due to land access issues the annual Team Trial is being held early this year on Sunday 18th June at Balmuick, Comrie in Perthshire. We are now looking for teams of four riders to take part. Ideally we would like to get at least two, possibly four teams. To enter just get your names in asap to bill@bamcc.co.uk and we'll sort out the teams into the right classes. Good news is the club will pay your entry fee, bad news is that each team must provide an observer and it won't be me this year because I'll be at Knockhill watching the British Superbikes! Don't think too hard though closing date for entries is the 14th of June.
