28th February OPEN MEETING at Trethorne update

This is a reminder that the purpose of setting up this meeting was,and still is, to provide an opportunity for members of our club, neighbouring clubs, and representatives of the organizations we are involved with, to come together and start a conversation about “The Direction of our Grass Roots Sport” and ways to come together to make its existing or new forms more attractive to both competitors and organizers.

Sorry that may sound a bit pompous, but it is clear from conversational comments and reports that there are problems with what we do now and we need to look at the future.

In early January I sent email invitations to as many local clubs, as I thought might be interested, whose emails were listed on the ASMC website, as well as to ACTC, BTRDA, MCC.  I may have missed some people but I know word has also got around, and I hope as many of you as can will come to the meeting.

The Agenda is not yet fixed but will include:-

Cooperation between Clubs

Management of The Calendar

Age profiles of both competitors and Organizers

The costs of competing

Regulations

New types of Events

MORE NEWS

One a bright note our Launceston Trial this Sunday in Lew and Eastcott Woods ( Map Ref 201/ 461846) has an entry of over 40,  which is great for a non championship event.

 If You have not entered come along and Marshall. It is a great off road day out in the woods and the Burger Van will be there all day. We even have a swimming pool at the start for the Masochistic (don’t be tempted!)

February 2019 Newsletter

 Monthly Newsletter February 2019

Here we are already into the second month of the year and just to remind us all it’s Winter we as you will know have experienced significant snow fall but at least it isn’t on a weekend when we have an event planned.

From the club committee members point of view it has been a disappointing start to the year in that we had to cancel the Spry Sporting Trial due to lack of entries. This cancellation makes it even more important that members and non members attend the special meeting on the 28th of this month at Trethorne https://www.trethorneleisure.com/ to discuss the future of our club and the activities/events it puts on. The meeting starts at 8.00PM with tea and coffee being available from 7.30pm. For those travelling from afar there is a restaurant within the complex should you wish to indulge in something more substantial before the meeting.

On the 10th of this month is the Launceston Trial, held as a single venue classic trial for cars and bikes at the Eastcott Woods area not far from Lewdown, entries are due to close by the middle of the preceeding week so if you wish to enter you need to get a move on, the easiest way being the on line entry system via the club website. Those of you who are not entering and have some time to spare we are hoping you will volunteer to marshal, Warin Kelly is sat by the telephone awaiting your call on 01822 870393. Go on ring him, make his day !

As you can see the committee have a full range of events taking place throughout the year, but it has to be stressed that this is run by “that same old committee” in other words it would be great to have a few new faces joining us if only to keep us awake during some of the less interesting items in the meetings (not that there are many). Why not come along to the AGM , if only to voice your opinion on aspects of the club workings and maybe throw in a few fresh ideas.

In other news – after my mention in the last newsletter of possibly boosting the Dellow’s performance with a supercharger I was amazed at getting some responses which were much appreciated (even more proof that some of you read this minor offering) and I now have a Shorrock Supercharger on the garage workbench waiting to be fitted. It seemed such a harmless idea to fit a blower but as with all these things the job grows. It won’t fit on the side of the engine next to the inlet so it’s going the other side once I have finished mounting the alternator on the opposite side from where it has happily sat for the last six years. I am however very fortunate to have a small engineering company next door to me, neighbour Joe made me a lovely three belt pulley, all turned out of a single piece of steel bar, no going back now.

If you’ve got a specialist small engineering job that needs doing I can highly recommend these guys :- https://www.facebook.com/southweststeam/

Stay warm and don’t forget to send in contributions billjan299@gmail.com

Introducing Our New Online Trials Entry System

We have been working behind the scenes of an online entry system for the website as there has been some demand for it. We will be using it for our trials going forward. We are still going to be accepting paper entries as well.

The Testing Trial is the first event we have added to the entry system which takes place in a little under two weeks.

To use the entry system follow this link http://www.lncmc.co.uk/online-entry/ and then click on the register link to register your details. You can then login and make a trials entry. Please don’t be put off by the length of the registration form as you only need to fill out the sections that are relevant to you.

Payments are accepted through Paypal but you don’t require a Paypal account to pay your entry. You can enter your card details on Paypal’s website when submitting your entry to pay as a guest.

If you have any problems using the new system then please send us an email at info@lncmc.co.uk

Marks will be awarded for completion of each test or section correctly as well as times taken where appropriate. There will be a number of tests and rounds dependent on time and size.
