The Dick Wyatt Award

This biennial award is for non-riding contribution to the centre - in other words, it's really important!

Congratulations to 2018/19 winner Dave Burry, who can be found stewarding events across ACU Western, regularly attending ACU Western board meetings and of course riding grass tracks. Dave was presented with his award by chairman Tony Noel at the January 2020 AGM and board meeting.

Congratulations too to The Welch Family, which has won the Special Merit Award for their efforts in getting so many trials on in the centre, and playing a leading role in the ACU Western Youth Squad.

Zona 1 MCC's Kath Workman was named as the winner of the Dick Wyatt Award at the January 2015 board meeting, much to her surprise - but not anyone else's! Her work on the frontline of the paperwork means events happen and we can have fun on our bikes. Thank you Kath, and congratulations.

Simon Welch is the deserved 2012 winner, for his sterling work in starting up and running the Western Centre Youth Trials Development Squad. It's already had a positive effect on the trials scene in this centre and beyond, and its success has not gone unnoticed at ACU HQ. Congratulations Simon, his helpers and the lads and lasses who committed to it. It's expanding for 2013 - applications welcome now.

Rob Workman was unanimously voted for as the latest recipient of the Dick Wyatt Award for his significant efforts over many years. Tom Welch proposed his nomination, seconded by Tony Noel at the June 2011 centre board meeting. Rob has spent decades in the sport riding, and nowadays as a very experienced event organiser with Zona 1. Congratulations Rob!
