June 2013 Newsletter
Update: June 4th 2013
I now have a few answers and additional information to share :
Suffolk Under 10`s tomorrow is now at Ipswich
The open day we are doing on 15th June is at Woodbridge (further details to follow)
There are now 4 additional racing dates for your calenders due to the success of the Suffolk junior league a few weeks back :
19th June (Somersham)
7th Aug (Blakenham)
18th Sept (Kesgrave)
2nd Oct (Ipswich)
Again the teams for these meetings will be a mixture of under 13 & under 10 riders with a couple of inexperienced older riders racing too.
Also a couple of other items to mention. The club pump has disappeared so if someone has taken it home by accident then please bring it back !!! (its bright red so cant be missed) also one of our members left their spade at the club so can you check what you took home on saturday to see if you have it.
Original June Newsletter
Well that’s May gone and we are already firmly into the new season and all is good within the club. We went to Poole and blasted away the competition in the Under 10`s and were unfortunate not to make the final in the under 13`s (if only we were in the other half of the draw !). Locally we have dominated the Youth & Junior (and if you compared our scores nationally then we are dominating that too). So all looking rosy in our quest to be the biggest junior club in the country 🙂
Its really rewarding for our trainers to see the hard work they put in with the kids pay off with how well they are racing so far this season.
As for track improvements news well you can see for yourselves how well we have all done (all we wish for is more helpers). The work has accelerated over the past few weeks so that we can get finished for our 20th July deadline. It was really pleasing to see the numbers turn out on Saturday to get the works moving along swiftly (many thanks all) as things now stand then we will be getting concrete delivered on a Saturday morning later in June and will need all hands to the pump that day to get it laid whilst we are doing this then there will be other activities to be done. The next intended date after this will be 13th July to really get the track and surroundings ready for the national Youth & Junior on the 20th July. (that should be the last maintenance day of the season).
Wed 5th June – Suffolk Under 10`s Individual
We have a very healthy 7 riders booked in for this event and all being well some more silverware will be coming back in to the club this week 🙂
Meeting starts at 7pm (so be there for 6.30pm). I say be there but am not certain of the destination at the moment due to problems at Somersham so will inform those that need to know as soon as i know.
Saturday 8th June – Youth & Junior Reg Round 4 at Colchester
I have had a very healthy response to this meeting so thanks to all that have responded. Still a couple of stragglers though so guess there may be some holidays !
I will send out more details later in the week.
Wednesday 12th June – Suffolk Under 16 Individuals at Kesgrave
This meeting is being held at our track so although we have a lot of youngsters in the club it would be good if we had a strong representation within the meeting.
Booking in needs to happen by Wed 5th June so can you please let me know.
Meeting will start at 7.30pm so riders will need to be there for 7pm.
Saturday 15th June – Open Day at ??????
Details are a little sketchy at the moment as am waiting for Peter to confirm which one we are doing !!! (we have been invited to 3 but will only be doing 1 ).
Heath School or Woodbridge are the potential destinations (we have already declined Wickham Market).
Either way Peter will need a few helpers on the day so will let you know timings etc once i have confirmation.
Sunday 16th June – Kesgrave Club Championships Round 2.
This is open to all club members and runs in age groups from under 5 through to senior.
Can all riders be there for 1pm to book in and racing will commence approx 1.30pm once all formulas are worked out.
The intention will be to run the club champs and then have a little break before doing a 4 team tournament again as this proved very successful last time.
For all the newer members out there please come along and ride as its good for the newer riders to get some competitive action on their own track with riders that they know .
Sunday 23rd June – Blakenham B V Kesgrave (Senior Meeting)
The team for this meeting will be announced closer to the time.
Wed 26th June – Suffolk U9/U11/U18 GP Round 3 at Colchester
Round 3 of this very popular competition takes place at 7pm (6.30pm book in). As so many of you have done it so far this season there is no need for me to explain the rules however if you are new and want to give it a go then feel free to do so as its good experience.
Sunday 30th June – South East Under 14 League at Spixworth
This is also a under 10 league and Under 16 league which have not entered.
We will be racing 2 teams of 4 riders for this event and teams will be sorted closer to the date.
Most of us have not been to Spixworth before so will be a good experience for the kids.
