The 2017 Pre-season draw was made at Saltire Motorcycles on Saturday 25th March at 4pm by Monarchs newest recruit Josh Pickering. It was a another great success as we raised £911 in 3 days, thank you to everyone that bought a ticket. As last year April and Craig Beveridge were busy at the 2017 Season Launch Live on Thursday, the Press and Practice on Friday and all day on Saturday at the Saltires Motorcycles Birthday Bash. The club donated some fantastic prizes with Derek Hay picking up the top prize of hospitality for 20 people, congratulations Derek.
There was also a very successful online sale, with £150 collected through the GoCardless payment system. Thank you to everyone that bought tickets online it made it worthwhile and will be used again in the future. In fact 2 of the prize winners purchased their winning ticket online!

It was a great day at the Saltire Motorcycles Birthday Bash and a massive thank you is due to all our volunteers who helped out on the day especially Geoff Craythorne for providing his vintage bikes, Scott Girdwood with the new Speedway card and Josh Pickering for bringing along his bike and spending time with visitors to the Monarchs pitch. There is also a new gater bike that the club have spent time developing and that was available for everyone to come along to test their reactions dropping the clutch. This was a popular attraction on the day and will be available at Armadale soon.
