Open 25-mile Time Trial on April 12th
Helpers are still required at this event, our second open TT of the year. (no more F&CCC TT open events until the Christmas 10, although there is a road race on 11th May)
Assistance is needed for signing the course, starting riders, marshalling, recording riders, relaying results, traffic counting, &c.
The course is H25/8 and the event starts at 14:00. There are three roundabouts on this course, hence the need for a significant number of marshalls.
You could, of course, be really adventurous by competing in the club 10-mile TT in the morning, ride over to Bentley and help in the afternoon.
2014 Volunteering - March 15th TT
New Welfare Officer
Sadly, because of new work committments, Donna is unable to continue as Welfare Officer for the club. Although, her activities may not have been 'visible' to most members , she has done a huge amount of work behind the scenes to prepare the club for the launch of the FCCC Flyers. On behalf of the club, I'd like to thank her for her contribution.
It does mean that we are looking for another Welfare Officer, preferably from the ladies in the club, as BC specifically recommends a male and a female Welfare Officer and Alan is already the Deputy Welfare Officer.
We are also still looking for a Ride coordinator - contact Bob. This is mainly a communication and coordination role - you don't need to lead rides!
British Transport Police Want Volunteers
We received this request for volunteers from the British Transport Police:
Type-A (Open)Time Trials for 2014
It was agreed at the AGM earlier this year that in 2014 the CTT Type-A (open) events to be run by the club would comprise:
- 10-mile TT
- 25-mile TT
- 10-mile Christmas TT
in addition it was stated that Ron Taylor, who has organised the Christmas 10 for many, many years is no longer in a position to undertake the organisation of this event afer this current year.
It is therefore necessary for us to provide an organiser for this event for the year 2014.
CTT date fixing is to be held in a couple of months and it will be a simple case of 'no organiser, no event'.
If you would like to investigate what this task entails, please talk to Donald, either at the club TTs or at the club room to get more information.
If everyone lets someone else do this then we will lose this popular event.
