In the Bleat this week;
• Van Volunteers
• Event Traffic Controller Training
• Racing this Week
As we transition into the new arrangements for the race van, we are looking to establish a pool of members who would be interested in taking on responsibility to prepare the van, drive it out to races and return it to Stromlo.
Members who drive the van to an event would still be able to participate in the race.
Members who are willing to be included in the roster should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Note that the van is a manual gear change.
Event Traffic Controller Training
The last ETC training course was cancelled due to lack of enrollments. We need to have more members become ETC’s so we can run races in the ACT. And given current problems with racing in NSW, these are the only races we can currently run.
Upcoming dates for courses are;
- Saturday 5 June
- Saturday 24 July
We need to get sufficient members to nominate be able to run the courses. Please nominate to undertake the training to email@example.com We should look to get enough members attending so as to utilise both dates.
