  The 2017 LDMTA AGM and Talk Friday 24th November

The 2017 LDMTA AGM was held on Friday 24 November at Wilf’s cafe. Geoff Clarke has taken over as Treasurer from Ann Smith. Also Mike Hind and Dave Fenwick have joined the committee. The new Committee can be found here.
The Organiser's report from this year's Trial is available here. The Planner's and Controller's reports are available here.
At the end of the AGM, a certificate for the completion of 15 Medium Trials was awarded to Debbie Thompson. Joss Naylor couldn't be at the AGM, so, in recognition of his 50 Mountain Trial completions, our president Edwin Coope presented Joss with an engraved tankard at the recent Joss Naylor Dinner
Also a Long Service Award was given to Dick Courchee in recognition of his many years of service, in a whole range of roles, to the Mountain Trial.
After the AGM and buffet, there was an illustrated talk by Dan Duxbury of Ambleside AAC. In 2014 he made a self-propelled continuous round of the Munros in just 42 days overcoming a severe ankle injury and difficult weather comditions.
The 2018 Mountain Trial will be held on Sunday 9th September from Grasmere.

  2017 Results

The Results are now available here. Routegadget where you can draw your route and see where others went, and WinSplits are now available via the results page. Routegadget only goes up to control 5 on the Classic. Controls 6 and 7 on the Classic were Controls 5 and 6 on the Medium (Kirk Fell and Blackbeck Tarn).

We are very sorry that the Classic and Medium courses had to be stopped due to the bad weather.
We held the prizegiving for the Short in the barn.
Prizes have been awarded as best we can for the Classic and Medium and have been posted out. The Trophies for the Classic course will not be awarded this year. The list of prizewinners is here. The completion lists have been brought up to date. Anyone who reached Control 5 on the Classic or Control 4 on the Medium has been regarded as completing the course.
