AGM Details

Our AGM is just two weeks away, so here’s the skinny on the event.

When

Saturday October 23rd, from 5:30pm to probably about 7:30pm.

Note that the PPYCC AGM is prior to this in the same place 3:00pm to 5:00pm, with a half hour break between the two.

Where

As usual, at the Knoyle Hall on Knoyle Road, Brighton, BN1 6RB.

Parking is sometimes a bit scarce, so walk or ride if you can.

What

  • AGM Agenda items which will usually include
    • Nomination and/or re-election of any positions for the committee which need to be filled
    • Financial reports
  • Prize Giving and photos
    • Please note, that preliminary finances show a poor year this year as far as track league goes, so the prize fund is greatly reduced from normal.

If you have any items you wish the committee to consider for the agenda please email to committee@scrl.co.uk or use the contact form.

There will also be a chance to socialise with fellow league members over a drink or two:

  • We will have beer from the Long Man Brewery available at £5 a pint (remember we have to pay retail for the beer plus a temporary event licence so it can’t be any cheaper). Card payments on the day please. NOTE: If you are a younger adult, please bring some I.D. We won’t be taking any chances on that front. No you still won’t get served if your birthday is only next week. Don’t forget we know your date of birth anyway from your league registration 😉
  • Tea and coffee as usual, along with cakes and treats.

What should I bring?

  • Bring your league race numbers back if you haven’t already.
  • Please bring along cakes or treats and other things which we can sell at the event in the interval to raise funds for the league.
  • If you are available to help out for a bit just prior or afterwards for setup/cleanup please feel free to show up early/hang around and help out.
  • We are also keen to get some good quality shots of our prize winners this year. If you are a dab hand with a camera (and will do it for free!) please make yourself known to the committee using the email./contact links above.

AGM (and other stuff)

The date has been set for our AGM. As usual it is at the Knoyle Hall on Knoyle Road Brighton (next to the church). The date is Saturday October 23rd, with the PPYCC AGM planned to be 3pm to 5pm and then SCRL from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

Please come along to collect your prizes if you have won one, or to just generally celebrate our return to racing anyway.

Full address:
Knoyle Hall,
Knoyle Road,
Brighton
BN1 6RB

Race Numbers

There are a few of you still to return race numbers. You can bring them to the AGM or you can email promoter@scrl.co.uk and I will tell you the address to post them to.

Please make sure you return your numbers, otherwise we have to spend league money on replacing them. Money that could be better spent elsewhere.

Cakes and stuff

Cakes either store bought or home made always welcome at the AGM to raise a few more quid.

League News: Week 18

This Wednesday (11th) sees our final week of league racing at Preston Park. With some of the podium places still up for grabs will we see a change in the standings? Hopefully the recent tradition of last-week-rainoff will be avoided this year and we can find out!

Don’t forget, we always need the usual complement of volunteers and we could use a couple more on the spreadsheet. Click here to sign up.

Surveys

If you are a league member you should already have had a survey arrive in your inbox via RiderHQ about the AGM. Please ensure you respond. At the moment we have had only 17 responses and about 13 of those saying they will attend in person so if you want a prizegiving please have your say!

Keep an eye on your inbox as we will be sending out a more general purpose survey close to the finish of the season. This will be your chance to provide feedback on the league as it is now, and some potential changes which may or may not make it as far as the AGM for a vote depending on the general response from the survey.

Social!

Don’t forget, there are a couple of drinks planned by a few of us after this weeks racing over at the Park View (probably the garden but weather permitting!). Come one, come all.

Numbers

Don’t forget to hand in your numbers to the judges area at the end of racing before you leave. Chasing people up for them after the season is a headache we can do without!

Yes, volunteers again

Pursuits

Still need a few more for the pursuits. Qualifiers will be three races of three riders, but station 2 may need to be used if there is a false start and a rider takes a second run so we need people to cover that also.

Remember that if you’re not riding pursuits you won’t be doing much else so nothing to stop non-pursuit riders helping out.

Click here to go to the spreadsheet to put your name down.

If you are helping for pursuits, then please come to the judging table no later than 6:30 for briefing and station allocation.

Other Volunteers

We also still need another judge for tomorrow, and a couple of marshals. Click here to put your name down.

Returning Numbers

A reminder that next week (the 11th) will be our last week, so if you won’t be there please hand in your league numbers at the end of the night to the judges desk.

Thanks.

Track League News: Week 17

Pursuits

Just another reminder that the pursuits competition for next week (Week 17, 4th August) is still open for entry until Tuesday 6pm. You can read more about it at the original post here.

Also a reminder that we need about 3x volunteers to run the pursuits.

Remember that if you are NOT racing the pursuits you’ll have a wait anyway, so no reason not to help out if you are a non-pursuit rider.

To offer your services as a timekeeper or holder please add your name to the spreadsheet here.

Also next week…

There is a race meeting on at Brighton Racecourse on Wednesday through Friday. If your route to track takes your past there, especially if you have to come up Wilson Avenue, you might want to go a different way or leave earlier.

Post Season Social

A few of us are planning to head over to the Park View pub for a drink or two after the final night on August 11th. It’s an open invite to anyone in the league who fancies popping along. Go on, you earned it.

AGM

We haven’t set a date yet but will be doing so soon. This is the time to get together any thoughts about anything you might want to get put on the agenda. Ideas with support are more likely to be discussed so if you can get a few other league members to put their names to it as well that will help.

We will be planning to do a post-season survey as soon as we can when the season is over so think about any feedback you might want to give for that too.

Tonight: Volunteers and riders required!

Firstly, still two spots to fill on the volunteers grid. As well as regulars away it would seem a lot of people re not attending now that school has broken up and people are probably away, which means grabbing a random person tonight is not feasible. Fill the spots or no racing. Click here to put your name down. Which brings us on to point 2.

We have few riders signed up for tonight so far (if I discount those of you who’ve had an entry carried over for several weeks in a row, presuming you won’t show). It’s quite borderline as to whether its even really viable to run it tonight so if you want to race, get your entry in soon please. Click here to enter.

Thanks.

Volunteers/Pursuits

This Week

Still two marshal posts and an i-pad operator position to fill, at minimum, if we want to race tomorrow.

Don’t just presume someone else will do it, a lot of the usual volunteers are away this week, and the remaining two weeks as well so we need some additional hands to step up. Click here to put your name down.

Next Week

Still an empty volunteer sheet for the pursuits. Click here to put your name down.

COVID Restriction Easing

And what does it mean for us at Track League?

In short, very little.

  • Our track limits are within the permissible minimum bunch sizes set at their most restrictive anyway.
  • The track and trace QR check-in is still encouraged, so those will still be put on display.
  • There is plenty of room for social distancing to continue. Please respect those who may wish to keep a social distance outside of the racing bunch and vice-versa.
  • Entry will remain online only for the time being, as it saves a considerable amount of work on the day. We may consider bringing it back under different conditions.

Weather is looking good this week. Lets try and make it a final 4 weeks to remember.

League Entry

Sorry about the delay in the entry page being created this week.

Each week we have to move across any no-shows and also make sure that we bill anyone who didn’t pre-enter on the night. This all adds to the admin.

With that in mind, there are quite a few “late entries”, if we want to call them that, each week, and the same faces seem to crop up an awful lot!

Entry for track league is open until 3pm on the day so please enter online, as the additional admin of chasing post-race entry payments all takes time.

Pursuits

Our pursuits champs is up in a week or so’s time. There will be a separate entry form just as we had for the sprint champs. Keep an eye on your inbox.

Racing Cancelled: Week #13

The results of our poll put each senior category at less than 10 riders, and the youth categories at just three each. This leaves the league in a loss making position (though that is not the only consideration it is an important one). With the volunteer positions being a bit stretched as well we have decided that we shall cancel this week and look forward to the Devil Championships next week.

So either enjoy the match(es), or go enjoy the empty roads for a couple of hours.

See you next week.
