ANGLESEY GRAND – 29th & 30th September

A report of the Grand meeting and the outcome of the various championships appear in the Reports section of this website. An excellent end to the 2018 season.

PERSONNEL CHANGES

Helen Smith, our General Secretary and Social / Annual Awards Secretary has sadly decided to stand down from the club’s committee. The Club would like to thank Helen sincerely for her hard work over the last nine years in these roles, and we of course hope that we will continue to see her officiating and marshalling at our race meetings.

We are fortunate in that Peter Thompson has decided to take over the General Secretary’s role (thanks Pete), but a vacancy now exists in the Club’s organisation for someone to help us out by taking over as the Social / Annual Awards Secretary. The work mainly concerns the Annual Dinner Dance & Awards Presentation; anyone interested, perhaps a couple, should contact any committee member.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – Tuesday 20th November

This will again take place at the Bridge Inn, Bolton Road, Port Sunlight, Wirral – (SatNav: CH62 4UQ). Start-time - 8pm. All members are invited to attend – to hear the various sporting and financial reports on 2018, and to contribute to our plans for 2019 (for instance entry fees, race classes, race lengths, etc) Anyone interested in seeking election to the committee should contact our new secretary Peter Thompson by Monday 19th November at the latest – tel: home 0151 348 1139; email: deltaw100@gmail.com

2019 PROVISIONAL CALENDAR

At this stage the calendar should still be regarded as provisional, but we are not expecting any significant changes to the dates or to our classes and to the format of our meetings, but this could of course changes if any new ideas emerge from the AGM. We anticipate that regulations and entry forms will be available on this website early in February.

ONLINE LICENCING 2019

The ACU’s online licencing system allows Road Racers to renew or apply for their licences online. By 30 November 2018 the Club will be issued with a unique series of Personal Identification Numbers (‘PIN’), such that when riders renew their club memberships we (ie Margaret Dewsnap) will provide them with their own PIN, and this number will be required to be input as part of the licence application procedure. If members prefer to complete their licence application forms in the traditional hand-written way, they will still be able to do so, although the PIN number will have to be inserted on the application form (either by the rider himself or by Margaret).

MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS 2018

Club membership forms will be distributed to all of our 2018 members in December and a copy also will be available to be downloaded from the Downloads section of this website. Subject to approval at the AGM the cost will remain at £15.

MARSHALS’ RECRUITMENT

Racing cannot take place unless we have sufficient marshals, and we are always keen to recruit newcomers, male or female, experienced or not experienced, English, Welsh or from somewhere else, to join the so-called ‘orange army’. You may already attend our race meetings and wish to get more involved. Don’t be shy, step forward - you will be made to feel very welcome and you will be properly trained in the various safety aspects of marshalling. A marshals’ training course will be held before the race season starts, so any marshals interested in helping us should contact Dave Edwards, the Club’s Chairman and Chief Marshal (contact details below), or any officer or committee member. Thank you.

PRIVACY NOTICE

Having regard to the recently-introduced General Data Protection Regulations, the Club has published a Privacy Notice for Competitors, Officials, Marshals & Other Members. The Notice appears in the Downloads section of this website
