Type-A Time Trials 2015
At the AGM the club agreed to run three type-A time trials in 2015: 10-mile, 25-mile during the racing season and 10-mile at Christmas.
It is now the time for us to apply for 2015 events to our CTT District, London West.
I have an organiser for each of the two events during the racing season but require a volunteer to organise the Christmas 10 in December 2015.
I am aware that this seems a long way off, but if I do not get a volunteer for this task I will not apply for this event to be run in 2015.
It is essential that I have full details of an organiser before the DC meeting on September 15th.
Help with Something other than Go Ride Certification
Thanks to Andy Hale for stepping up to fill the contact post for our Go Ride application.
However we still have a number of other vacancies. As I mentioned in a recent newsletter, because of work changes, I cannot continue in the web editor. Thanks to Mark for stepping up! Thanks to Mike for agreeing to look after the rides.
We also have vacancies for general sec., social sec, acting ladies sec and we will shortly have a vacancy for a volunteers coordinator, as David is going abroad for a while.. These are good opportunities to get involved and to influence the direction of the club. Again, contact me if you can help.
Club Members that want to help with the Tour of Britain
We are liaising with the council to help with the Tour of Britain Road Race, which is starting from Camberley on September 13th. The council is looking for volunteers to help at the start area for the morning. (The Tour organisers will be looking for more marshalls later, apparently).
If you would like to help, please register on the club calendar here, so that we can get an idea of numbers. We would prefer members that have club kit as this is a great chance to boost awareness locally.
Update - the organisers were looking for 24 helpers, and we're up to 19, so just 5 places left! Thanks to those that have responded.
Help Needed For 12Hr TT at Newbury
Newbury CC are running a 12h time trial on 15th of June, using the A31 between Coxbridge roundabout and Chawton roundabout. Obviously, with a long event such as this, they will need a lot of help with marshalling etc, otherwise a few people will be standing there for a very long time. Even a couple of hours will be extremely helpful.
If you are able to spare some time to help to support the event, please contact Donald.
ps entries close on 3rd June, so there's still time to enter if you fancy a serious workout!
Runways End Event 20th September
The club has been offered a space at the Runways End Activity Centre. It could be a good chance to promote the club at an event that is expected to attract several hundred people. If any club members are able to help out on the 20th September (perhaps with a roller competition?), let David know.
