2013 July Newsletter

Hello All

Well we are at the half way point of a season that appears to be busier off the track than on it ! With the amount of maintenance works taking place and preparations for the national youth and junior coming up then its all go at the moment.

looking back on June then the seniors picked up 2 league wins to finally get their season up and running, We ran an under 8 team meeting against blakenham which i am sure they all enjoyed and also secured victory in the 4th regional round of the youth and junior. On top of this Lewis Brinkhoff retained his Suffolk Under 10 individual title so all is Rosy within the club 🙂

If any of you newer members want to ride in meetings then please let me know and i can explain the ins and outs as Suffolk GP & South East GP are open to everybody.

So for July meetings please see below :

Wednesday 3rd July – Suffolk Under 11/under 15 & Senior GP at Somersham
This is the 3rd round of the above competition for riders in the above age groups. Meeting starts at 7pm so be there for 6.30pm.

This meeting is scheduled for Somersham so may change so i will either advise verbally at training or via email on Tuesday if i hear anything different.

Sunday 7th July – Hethersett V Kesgrave (Senior Meeting)
Team will be advised at training on Tuesday

Wednesday 10th July – Suffolk Under 13 Individual Championships at Ipswich.
Your son or daughter will need to book in for this meeting a week in advance (closing date wed 3rd July). Please email me if they wish to ride.

Please note that this meeting is only open to 16 riders so will be based on a first come first served basis with those in the current age group getting priority over those in the under 10`s.

Meeting commences at 7.30pm so please be there for 7pm.

Saturday 13th July – Track Maintenance Day from 10am till all finished
With only a week to go until our national event we need to get the track and surrounding areas up to a high standard so on this day we will be doing the gardening around the outside of the track area and also painting the kerbs.

We really could do with plenty of help on the day so if you have not popped up on one of maintenance days so far then this day would be a good one to start with. (this is also probably the last one of the season).

Many hands make light work !!!

Sunday 14th July – South East GP RD 5 at Somersham.
The first 4 rounds of this GP were joined with the Youth & Junior and have now split so anybody who has raced in the Y & J have scored points in this GP already. (there are 10 rounds in total).

The age groups remain the same (8, 10, 12 , 14, 16, girls, seniors & vets).

Meeting starts at midday so under 8 & 10 need to be there for 11.30am. Under 12 & 14 need to be there for 1pm and the rest for 1.30pm (Numbers will be lower than the Y&J so being safe than sorry on the timings.)

You do not have to book in advance for this meeting so can just turn up on the day.

Saturday 20th July – National Youth & Junior RD 1 at Kesgrave.
The big one is here !!!

Shortly Jane will be putting up a rota for jobs to do on the day so please put your name on the list generously to even out the load.

I will send an email closer to the date in regards to booking in riders as well as an agenda for the day.

This is the biggest meeting we have ever tried to run so would really appreciate as much assistance as possible to make it run smoothly.

Sunday 21st July – Norwich V Kesgrave (Senior Meeting)
Team will be sorted and announced closer to the date.

Wednesday 24th July – Suffolk Woman`s & Girls Individual Championships
This event is being held at Colchester (not Ipswich as announced on the fixture list). Meeting commences at 7.30pm and all girls will need to book 7 days in advance (so please email me by wed 17th July if your daughter is racing).

Sunday 28th July – South East GP RD 6 at East London (E16 3JJ)
Please see previous notes above on the structure of the GP series. Please note however this event has the lowest entry historically so would suggest that all 8`s & 10`s are there for 11.30am and everybody else for 1pm.

Wednesday 31st July – Suffolk Under 9/Under 13 & Under 18 GP at Somersham
This is the 3rd round of the above competition for riders in the above age groups. Meeting starts at 7pm so be there for 6.30pm.
