02 April 2014:
De-Regulation Bill

Some of you may have heard about The Deregulation Bill and how it might affect rights of way (Green Lanes).

The Bill (which is currently being discussed in the house of lords) is about simplifying processes and will enable Government to make changes to legislation. Part of the bill has a section in it regarding 'rights of way' that various anti 4x4 movements are trying to use to turn all BOATs and UCRs into Restricted Byways!

All very dull you may be thinking... well you need to wake up as if some of the decisions go the wrong way (for us) you can kiss goodbye to all your nice little weekend green laning trips as the countryside will be effectively closed to all motorised vehicles.

Currently our corner is being fought by various organisations including:
GLASS (Green Lane Association) www.glass-uk.org
LARA (Land Access & Recreation Association) www.laragb.org
TRF (Trail Riders Fellowship) www.trf.org.uk
MSA (Motorsports Association) www.msauk.org

However they need our help:-
- As a club we support GLASS through our membership fee with them
- As a club we are implementing an increase in the donation fee we ask for when you accompany us on our green laning days to £5 this will be passed to GLASS to aid the fight

As individuals we ask that you go to this web site www.theyworkforyou.com and enter your post code to find you local MP. Once at your MP's page you have a 'send message' button, click the button and outline what using the green lanes means to you.As you are messaging your local MP you will be asked for your contact details also...

If we each do a little, we all do a lot

Newham Annual Charity RTV Event 2013
(Devon & Cornwall Land Rover Club)

Thanks to Kevin Wood for pulling the teams together and coordinating this weekends excursion. Whilst we may not have had the success afforded us last year our members still put in sterling drives with team HBLRO1 (class 4) finishing 5th in class and 13th overall and team HBLRO2 (mixed class) finishing 20th overall.

Individual scores can be found on the 2013 Calendar page

A big thanks to all at Cornwall & Devon LRC for putting on another great event


Mark Ambler Class 5 CCV winner28th May 2013:
Nationals Roundup

The Club returned from the Wye & Welsh National at Usk Castle South Wales with a couple of awards. Not the massive trophy haul of last year, but a good showing from Hugh Duffett winning Class 3 Comp Safari Class and Mark Ambler taking a class win in CCV meant that HBLRO did not go home empty handed. The event was well attended with top class competition in CCV and our clubs core discipline, RTV. The competition was so fierce that a score of only 4 points from Alan Braclik in the 12 section RTV saw him come in 6th in class 4!

A big thank you to the Wye & Welsh and supporting clubs for running such a well organised rally. The team delivered an excellent weekends competition. This was definitely a drivers event with sections devised to get the best out of the land and not inhibit the driving with tight gates. It’s not easy running an event of this size but everyone I spoke to was happy and helpful from the moment we arrived to the final wave at the gate when we hit the road home.

Special big thanks to those members who stayed behind to help take the marquee down and tidy up...
