Talk:Trial Event

My understanding of this page is that the "Years Run (Nationally)" section in the table is used to indicate that former trial events were run as official events on the national level (see: Code Busters or Hovercraft). If that's the case, should events such as Hydrogeology and Roller Coaster be added to the table in order to show that they were formerly trial events? If these events are added to this page then should they also have the Trial Event Pages category, or is that just for events that have never been run officially on the national level? --Jaspattack (talk) 22:56, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

My view on this is: official events that used to be trial events can be added to show what years they were run as trials, as a way to show the progression that events can take to get to official status. Based on the looks of things, events that have been run officially no longer are included under the Trial Event Pages category, unless they are currently being run as a notable trial event (i.e. multiple tournaments or nationals). One of the other wikimods can chime in if they have a different view. EastStroudsburg13 (talk) 16:58, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
