THE GEORGETOWN SHELL

 

This trophy is awarded to the winner of our season long Georgetown TT series. 

Based on the riders fastest four Georgetowns over the year - the winner in 2011 was Barry McGurk.

 

The 'Shell' is an original piece of World War One 'trench art' made from an empty artillary shell casing  - possibly made by soldiers in the trenches but more likely by French artisans just after the War.

The wooden plinth was added by the clubs very own artisan - John Gordon!

THE VETS CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY

 

The Vets Championship is worked out using the "Vets on Standard"  formula. No one in the club actually knows the formula but its won by Davie Millar every year and probably always will be!

The unusual wooden design is a piece of abstract art made in the 1970s by former club member Harry Miller.

Harry is a great character and another of the clubs long line of skilled woodworkers. He is a guitar maker, now based in Wales, and his most notable creation was a "Welly Boot" shaped guitar commisioned and used on stage by Billy Connolly.
