Hi Guys,

I see you are not confirmed as a national venue for 13/14 ? :(

Have you applied, are you going to hold one?

I thought last year was a success.

Hi Darren,

Yes, I think it was a success but there is an issue around the school being available for the whole weekend.
At the moment it looks as if we may not be holding a national this season.

Regards
Brian

Agreed it was the best national of the year. If the members can help make it possible let us know.

Had an update from Wookie last night, and it sounds like WK have done everything they can, but looks like a no go for now. :(

If we could have the gym it wouldn't be a problem but there is a guy who leases the gym and has it booked for all the Saturdays. Sundays are not a problem.

Can the pitting go into the changing rooms and corridor or sacrifice a bit of track size for pitting in the main hall? I'll pit in the garage if it makes space! :)

Marquee on the tennis court if you don't get a mid winter round ?

We did discuss those options at the last committee meeting, but both changing rooms do not provide enough space to cover loss of the gym. Also if people are pitting in the corridor there wouldn't be space for food tables or access for those who are using the gym on Saturday.

It's disappointing but that's the nature of the free market and the school has to pay their own bills at the end of the day. We definitely want to host a National again as it's a very enjoyable few days and gives all local racers a 'home' event, but we'd rather do it justice by providing the right facilities.

Regards,

Dan
