|National Hill Climb update 30 October 2007|
In know this is a bit like 'singing our own praises', but considering all the effort the clubs put in to support the National Hill Climb I thought it would be good to see the feedback we have been getting so far:
Thank you to you, your wife, and all your helpers for a great event yesterday. Very well organised, lovely scenery, traditional weather and a warm welcome. Well done, top job !
I just want to congratulate you and your team on an excellent event on Sunday. I'm no hillclimber, but I've now ridden 4 national championship versions in consecutive years, and yours stood out as the most carefully and expertly organised. And to arrange for the downpours before and after the event, but not during it was even more impressive.
Many thanks for organising a fantastic hill climb yesterday. Please also pass on a huge thank you to the large number of helpers who really did a superb job which did not go unnoticed. The Guernsey contingent enjoyed their day out.
Just a quick note to say "thanks" for a great National Hill Climb! "Enjoyed" my ride! Thanks to all the marshalls, helpers and timekeepers.
Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the hillclimb on Sunday. The organisation, facilities and atmosphere were superb, and the weather wasn't 'too bad'. Please pass on my thanks to all
and does it come any better than this?
Over the last 6 or 7 years I have attended 99% of all National Championships.
WELL DONE to the whole team.

|AGM 24 September 2007|
The District Annual General Meeting was held after the Severn RC promotion at Ashton Keynes on Sunday.
Three Officers retired from the Committee, Christine (Treasurer), Mary-Jane and John (Else). Our thanks to all of them for the contribution they have all made to the District during their term in office.
Christine has agreed to remain as the Treasurer until the end of December to oversee the affiliations and club levies for this year and to ensure a smooth handover. There were no nominations for a new Treasurer at the meeting and the Committee was empowered to appoint a new incumbent . We should really like to hear from anyone in the District that would like to take on this position, whilst financial skills are required they are not complex, organisational skills and the ability to deal with people are equally important. The vast majority of clubs and event organisers are now well drilled in what they have to do, making the job of collected money and passing it on to National so much easier. If you are interested then please speak to anyone on the committee or feel free to contact the Chairman to discuss the job in more detail (01963 440291).
We are pleased to welcome two new members onto the committee, Chris Broad-Drake and Charles Zanettacci, I am sure they will both make a valuable contribution to the running of the District.
The dates were agreed for those clubs that have submitted Open Event request forms, for those that have only verbally requested dates please can you submit a form as the new one requests information that has not previously been part of the form. Open Event Application Form. These need to go to Dave Keene as soon as possible as he has to submit the dates to National very soon.
The District Championship event levy and the request for a voluntary contribution to the District remain unchanged, see article below.
Dates for the District Championship were agreed as:
The John Galway Memorial Award was awarded to David Notley for his work in dealing with the Police and Highways Agency over the use of the A303 and the A417 as well as his efforts on the National Hill Climb.

|ON-LINE ENTRIES 25 July 2007|

An amended Open Event Application Form is available by clicking on the link.
