Road Race May 11th - Thanks

I got this from Nigel:

"On behalf of Gareth and myself I would like to thank everyone for supporting the clubs road race on Sunday and making it a huge success. All we received were complements from riders and Commissaries at the event on how professional and helpful all the marshals and helpers were. It was definitely a team effort and helps keep cycle road racing on the open roads. Let’s hope that we can get some club members riding our own event next year?

I hope everyone enjoyed the experience and I hope to see you all again same time next year.


Nigel Fletcher."

Thanks also to Gareth and Nigel for their efforts in organising the event. For those of you that need plenty of warning, your next (and last chance) to volunteer this year is the Xmas 10 on 21st December which Jane is running.

 

Clubman of the Year Award

show of hands smallThe club has a "Clubman of the year" award. This award, according to the rules is

"Awarded to the member who, in the opinion of club members has rendered the greatest service to the club in the past year, such opinion to be expressed by a ballot of members".

Traditionally, this has been voted for at the Annual Dinner, but as the growth of attendance at the Dinner has not matched the rate of growth of the club, it has been decided to run the award by a ballot on the forum.

Send nominations to Chris by the 4th January and we'll set up the poll from the 5th. This is now set up here

Half Year Report

We're halfway through the year between AGMs, so I thought I'd summarise where we're up to and where we're trying to go as a club.

Scheme for Support of Open TT & Race Riders

bike racers cutmillWe 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.

Scheme for Support of Open TT & Race Riders (2014)

bike racers cutmillThis year, we are repeating last year's scheme to reward those that are taking part in open TTs and in racing. 

Where riders commit by the end of May to either, during the year:

  • 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.

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 had been hoping to introduce a wider scheme to reward competitors and helpers next year, but we're short of a volunteer to administer it. If you can help, please contact Bob.
