It's 70 years since the Monarchs took to the track for the first time and to kick start a year of celebration we are proud to unveil a specially commissioned logo to mark the Club's 70th season!

This logo will appear on all activities connected to the 70th anniversary celebrations.

The year ahead will be packed with many events and initiatives designed to properly celebrate this significant landmark.

First up, the Monarchs Fans Trust will start the year with a special early season 70th themed raffle sponsored by Duddingston Private Hire.

A range of merchandise is being put together, proudly displaying the Monarchs 70th logo.

During the season there will be a very special meeting staged at Armadale as a big birthday celebration. A social event, likely to be staged on the same weekend as the Birthday meeting, will form a showpiece of the whole celebration.

The 70th year will also see the formation of our Hall of Fame for Monarchs greatest contributors.

Our authors and archivists are already busy and we will release up to 4 historical publications.

And for those not sure of the Monarchs history we will be presenting a stage show with special guests explaining the highs and maybe some lows of our seventy years.

Full details of all of the above will follow in due course.

It will be a busy year as we look to celebrate in style with all of our supporters with all this and more to be unveiled!
