February 2015 Newsletter

After a hugely successful 2014 race season for Bristol BMX Club, the Committee could not be any prouder. Our members have worked hard and shown commitment and dedication. This has been rewarded with numerous wins and title retention of No.1 Club in the South West Region. The strong body of support between riders has been incredible. May this year be just as successful and see the Club move even further forward. Therefore, we very much hope you will continue to support Bristol BMX Club by the renewal of your membership for 2015.

 CLUB RACE DATES FOR 2015

Membership Registration Evenings
25th March & 1st April
Start of Series 1
8th April over 10 weeks
Series 1 Presentation Evening
17th June
Start of Series 2
24th June over 10 weeks
Series 2 Presentation Evening
2nd September
There will be NO Wednesday night racing on the week of the BMX World Championships (22nd July) due to shortage of staff. We will therefore hold a weekend race in August (Saturday or Sunday – date to be confirmed). 

The cost of annual membership is £20.00 per rider and a discounted rate for a family of 4 of £60.00. This will include a race plate, the chance to qualify for Series 1 and 2 Trophies, and an end of Season Trophy which will be presented at our Disco in November 2015.

Weekly race fees will remain the same at £4.00 for members and £6.00 for non-members.

Registration on a Wednesday night will start at around 5.30pm and end promptly at 6.30pm. This only gives us half an hour to work out the formulas and print the moto sheets to get racing underway at 7pm. You can pre-register each race night on the Club Mobile: 07854 417382. Mobile is switched on from 5.30 onwards.

If you do not register in person or by telephone before 6.30pm, then unfortunately you will be unable to race.

It is also imperative that you check the pre-moto sheets. This is your responsibility and will assist the race co-coordinator in rectifying any errors. Please help us to get racing underway on time.

As per last year, the Season will be split into two Series. Members will get the chance to race 7 races from each series of 10 to qualify for a trophy which will be presented at the track on the above Presentation Evening dates. ALL members will also receive an end of Season trophy for their ranking throughout the year (best 14 from 20 rounds).

A 2015 membership application form can be downloaded and printed off from should you wish to join prior to the start of the race season. This means the membership cards can be written out well in advance. Otherwise, please come along to one of the registration evenings.

On becoming a member you will receive a Club Number Plate with an allocated Club Number. Should you wish to keep your number from 2014, please state this request on your membership application form or ask at one of the registration evenings. It is important that your Club number is displayed clearly each race night. Riders with no number or the incorrect number may have to forfeit their points, as the Finish Line will be unable to mark your place down – therefore you will be awarded last place.

Bristol BMX Club is run solely by parent volunteers without whom there would be no racing. If you can do anything to help, it would be very much appreciated (setting up, finish line, marshalling, refreshments, packing away etc). Please pass your name and contact number to one of the committee.

We very much look forward to seeing you racing again in 2015.
