We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.

Antelope RT 3up TTT 2009 PDF Print E-mail

The racing season is upon us ....
This year's Antelope RT 3up TTT will be held on Saturday 18th April.   It is for teams of three riders.  The course is largely two laps of a flattish circuit situated between Aylesbury, Princes Risborough and Thame.  There are no significant hills, just a series of light undulations.   Course record for the 50km is held by Arctic-Shorter-Rochford (Charles McCulloch, Richard Bradley & Gavin Pardoe) with 1h 5m 59s.
Prizes last year exceeded £1000, across 225 riders.  We again have sponsorship from Cobham Antenna Systems, and so I hope to repeat those big numbers in 2009.
Click here to download a flyer for the event.
Composite teams will be on an equal footing with Club teams, as will Student teams as the fastest teams get the prizes, regardless of their composition.  We hope to have lots of Student teams, as the TTT is again incorporating the BUCS (formerly BUSA) TTT Championships.
As previously, I'm keen to accept on-line entries.  To do this, a completed CTT entry form (for each rider) needs to be emailed to me.  You can then either send a Paypal payment, or wait for me to reply with a Paypal money request.  Anyone with either a credit card or a debit card can then make an instant payment.  Simple!
N.B. If you're interested in riding but don't know who to ride with then contact Dave Bennett (Racing Secretary) who I am sure can assist in bringing together a team or teams

Will the Committee consider some sort of award for this, or do we already have one.

I was making my way home from the AGM when my front light failed. I had only reached Fox Corner, and was contemplating riding the rest of the way (to Odiham) in the dark.  I had 3 good rear lights on the back of my trike so it was only a matter of using my "night sight". 

Unknown to me one of our number had spotted my dilemma and was waiting for me at the top of Vokes.  I was duely waived down and offered a lift back to my car, even though this meant a 20 mile detour, and restructuring the inside of the vehicle to accommodate a complete trike. 

The problem with the light turned out to be family members using it as a torch for searching dark spaces without letting me know they had done so.  It is now safely out of their reach.

I missed the opportunity to publicly thank him at the dinner so would like to do so now.  He knows who he is and so do many of you.  He often praises the efforts of others and then slips back into obscurity.  He embraces the spirit of being a CLUB member, the true Clubman.

I hope to be at the clubroom in the near future where there will be a "proper" drink waiting.  Thank you.
