KCA 12 HOUR CANCELLED

The KCA have cancelled this year's 12 hour event. Due to the low participation by Group members last year and the few remaining opportunties for an alternative event to be chosen for the Group Championship it has been decided not to make an award for the 12 Hour this year.

Just a reminder that we need Event Organisers for the June 10 and September 25. WE also need a Treasure and Time Trials Secretary.

If we don't have event organisers, we don't have events. If we don't have a Treasurer or Time Trials Secretary we don't have a Group.

Please contact Keith or Esther if you can help.

GROUP LUNCH FEBRUARY 2015

We had a great Group Lunch at the Masonic Hall in Horsham on 1 February. Mike MorleyThe move of location was more challenging to find for those not local to the area but the hall was pleasant and the caterers (Robin works for them) were brilliant with lovely food.

The guest of honour was Keith Butler who made an entertaining speech and Mike Morley welcomed the guests and made up for the few words with some strange head wear.

 

As usual Keith gave an update on the past year and gave Horry Hemsley his certificate for 25 years membership and being over 80 years old.

We had the highest number of prize winners in a long time and some of them are below:

24 Hour National VTTA Champions
Michael Turner, Simon Yates, Peter Baker, Keith Butler

Keith Butler and Matt Woods

Ray Dare

Keith Butler and Ray Dare

Tom Glandfield

It seemed to be a great succes and we can all look forward to next year.

GROUP LUNCHEON AND 2015 SUBSCRIPTIONS

Keith would like to remind everyone that subs are due for 2015. You can download a copy of the membership form here. Can you please return the form with your payment to Keith. These remain the same as for 2014, so the amounts payable for 2015 to renew through the Surrey/Sussex Group are:

  • Single members - £12.00
  • Couples - £13.00
  • Life Member’s magazine fee - £6.00


  • Fees to apply for standards awards:
  • £10.00 for all rides at all distances (payable before your first qualifying event)
  • or £5.00 for all rides at a single specified distance.

    Don't forget that the Group lunch and prize presentation is on the 1st February. You can download a booking form here.

    After several years of holding our lunches at Rowfant House we tried to book again for 2015 only to be told that their catering business had closed down. Although apparently a rescue plan has now been put in place we had to look elsewhere to make sure that we have a suitable venue.

    We have decided to return to The Normandy Centre in Horsham for 2015, which was the venue for several successful years of our luncheons before we transferred to Rowfant House. We will therefore be holding our next prize giving luncheon there on Sunday 1st February. We particularly hope that everyone in the Surrey/Sussex Group who is due to receive a trophy or VTTA medal will be able to come to have their award presented personally and their achievement recognised.
