2014-11-29 November/December newsletter

Hi all.

Welcome to the November/December newsletter.
Sorry it's been a bit quite of late but I've been living in the dark ages without internet access and have only just got things sorted.

Cheaper Club entries

The cost of Tuesday night racing is now reduced to $5 for club members (Female and Junior members still race for free). The price was originally put up to $10 to raise money for track work and facilities when we first moved over to Rydal.We've got a good buffer in the kitty now and are still stalled with State Forests about a formal access agreement which should allow us to install signage and trail features.
A storage shed is being organised at the show ground and will be stocked with trail tools.

The $5 entry fee covers the state forest fees and little else so we will review it as money is spent and needs arise.

Racing will run through until the 23rd Dec and then have a couple of weeks break over the holidays.

4 seasons 3hr double header 6-7th December

Due to the Autumn round being canceld for bad weather we have a double header for this one.
Saturday the 6th is the Summer 3hr and Sunday the 7th the Autumn in Summer 3hr

The one entry fee of $50 (solos) covers both days (You only have to enter once and can ride either or both) and online entries are open until Friday

Camping will be available at the Rydal Show ground for the Saturday night with a dinner available in the Showground hall (please indicate if you wish to purchase a dinner so we can organise the catering or on the webpage )

This will double as our christmas get together/ride/drinks etc.

As usual we need volunteers for marshals, sweep riders, rego, set up and pack up
If any on is able to help please let Craig or Phil know.

Tour de Range

Lastly on behalf of the CTMBC. I would like to thank everyone that braved the conditions & rode the Tour de Range Charity Ride .
It was great to see such support from the Bathurst Cycle Club members as well as riders from Mudgee,Sydney,Blue Mountains & Lithgow area.

As most of you area aware the 2 x charities that we had chosen to be the benefiter's from this years ride fell over a couple of weeks prier so we were able to support the Sheild Family Appeal for young Connor who at the age of 14yrs has developed a brain tumor & has a rough road ahead of him.

Despite truly horrid weather conditions on the morning we were able to raise $3000.00 for the appeal,thanks to the generosity of all who rode & participated in the days proceedings.

Glenn would also like to thank all who help out with driving cars,sweeping on motorbikes & running controls out on course & just anyone that help to make the day run smooth.
We would also like to thank all our sponsors for the great prizes they either gave us or contributed towards which would of added up to around $10,000.00 :- Wallerawang Bowling Club, Wolgan Valley Emirates Resort,Thales ( Lithgow Arms ), 2BS Bathurst, Greengrocer Cycling, Kables Auto Electrics, Mark Renshaw, Marion Renshaw,iKOU Products,Valley Spring Water, Red Kelly's Café,Lithgow Prints & Frames, Woolies Lithgow & Radio 2lt & also a special thanks to the Bathurst Rotary Club for the lone of the B2B signs.
We are looking forward to making this event bigger & better next year if the weather is on our side.
The lucky winner of the Wilier bike this year was Mrs Katrina Kable (who has just started MTB racing with her husband Michael ) with Thomas Stapleton winning the prize from Thales ( Lithgow Arms ) & a lot of happy faces from all the other lucky prize winners.

The raffle had everyone with there ear close to there phone & the lucky winner was Mr Ken Brodrick from Mudgee ? with second prize of the framed signed riders jersey from Mark Renshaw going to Mrs Elaine Ryan & third prize of a hamper pack from iKOU Products going to Jette Mckellar.

Massive thanks to Glenn and Robin whose hard work on this one paid off
