wants to ride the popular courses. However, like other clubs we'll
cancel an event if we don't have enough. The general rule we apply
is that riders should fulfill one volunteering session to every
10 rides. The committee monitor the volunteering records and will
take action if necessary. We're quite happy for a rider to substitute
a suitable friend or family member and this will count as a volunteering
session. Volunteering for our open TT also counts and volunteering
for events on the popular K10/10 and K11/10T gain double points!

not many people read newspapers these days, but we can only apologise
for inaccuracies in the Rugby Observer. After last week's TTs
(2nd August) we sent identical reports to the Rugby Advertiser
and the Rugby Observer. The Advertiser usually print without change,
but the Observer always rewrite it and invariably get it wrong.
Compare those two reports - the Observer decided the event was
held at the weekend, not a Wednesday, and that Craig had recorded
a sub-20 time, even though the results showed he did 20-57. Joe
Public must be very confused!

apologies for repeating this message from last year. Gloomy evenings
show many riders would benefit from a front light. Timekeeping
at the finish reinforces this message and it's easy to see how
an oncoming motorist could miss a cyclist travelling in the opposite
direction. Modern lights don't add much weight and could save
a big repair bill, (or even your life). We have spare lights
which riders can borrow if they forget.
minor change to the handicapping involving the carryover times
from last year so as to put more emphasis on this year's times.

who only fasten their number at the top probably don't realise
that it flaps around and makes it unreadable for the timekeepers.
Definitely a case of mistaken identity waiting to happen."
