For details of help needed.
Go Green in Rushmoor
For the last few years, the club has attended the "Go Green in Rushmoor" event with rollers and bikes to allow youngsters to have some fun. It's on 7th September from 10:30 to 3:30. We've booked the place again, as the organisers are keen to get us there, but are still in need of a couple of volunteers with hatchback cars/van to get the kit there and (possibly others) to help with the event.
This year is particularly important as we are still recruiting for the junior section.
If you are able to help, please contact Bob.
Social Secretary Still Needed!
Nobody came forward to take up the position of Social Secretary for the club at the AGM - we're still looking for someone that would like to take the role on. If you might be interested, contact Bob.
Saturday morning is our monthly club time trial on HCC175 - the fast Ewshott course.
These events commonly attract a significant field of non-club riders and to run the event efficiently we need four helpers:
- Two timekeepers
- One starter
- One for signing on.
Unfortunately we are short for Saturday due to other commitments.
A similar situation will probably occur next Thursday evening as well.
Road Race May 12th
As you may have noticed, we have been taking a number of actions to boost competition by club members and to support those that are getting involved. Part of this is to encourage road racing. As an affiliated club to the Surrey League, which is part of the support for riding, we are required to run an event. This needs a number of volunteers to help by marshalling at junctions and the number has increased this year because of changes to the course needed because of roadworks.
- If we can't get enough volunteers, we will have to cancel the event, which will disappoint a lot of riders that have booked and will cause us trouble with Surrey League
- We now have the volunteers we need for the morning. Thanks!
- In the afternoon, we need just 2 more
- We currently have more than 140 members that have not yet volunteered (and if you are in that number, you will probably be contacted individually if we can't get the numbers)
- It's fairly simple to do and you will get a briefing as well as getting a chance to see some racing
- This is a simple way to give something back to the club
You don't have to give up a Sunday ride - why not ride out in the morning for the afternoon event?
Thanks to Nigel for sending through details of the course. It's attached, but you'll have to download it here as attachments don't show on the front page.
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.
