Scheme for Support of Open TT & Race Riders
We are putting together a scheme to reward those that are taking part in open TTs and in racing. In the longer term, rewards for the current season will be based on the result for the previous season. However to get things started, we are making an up-front offer.
Where riders commit by the end of April in each year (but this year by May 15th as we're late to get things going!) to either
- Riding in 6 open TT events
- Riding in 6 race events
the club will refund either (for TTs), half the cost of entry and for road races, half the cost of a BC licence or Surrey League membership fees. In the first year, the maximum amount claimable for TT riders is £50. Note that the committment has to be made by April or May, but the rides can be done anytime during the year (before or after the committment).
Riders that intend to apply, should advise Bob that they intend to take part and then submit evidence to Dick of participation and cost once they have done the 6 events. Riders should be 'of good standing' - that is to say they have to be paid up members and met membership requirements. They should also compete in club kit.
We plan a wider scheme to reward competitors and helpers next year.
Level 1 Coaching?
As many of you will know, Nigel is doing a lot of things to get a junior section going. We do need to increase the number of those able to supervise and help with these activities. We want to increase the number of Level 1 coaches. Details of the qualification are here. The club has some funds to partially subsidise the cost. If you are interested or able to do this, contact Nigel.
We are also looking for more people that may be happy to help with rides, rather than formal coaching. This might involve a short (1/2 day) course on protection and a CRB check. If you are interested, contact Donna.
Keith has posted some great photos - click on the photo for more or see the forums here.
If you're looking for another open 25 to enter, club member John Barker mentioned the Catford 'Dave Marshall' Memorial Open 25 which takes place on 8th September.
