BCP Trackside building grand opening

Please find attached a selection of photos (Photo credit to Dave Hayward) from the grand opening of the BCP trackside building before the TRC road omnium event on Saturday.

Thanks to those that could make it and see what an asset this in now for the clubs going forward.

This is a great example of how local clubs can get together and join financial forces to make something happen.

I will be forever grateful to Tony Arnold and others at Thanet RC for all their hours of hard effort in construction of this building.

I am in the process of getting keys cut and will deliver one to all clubs involved shortly.

BCP Club Trackside building grand opening (24th September 10am)

Dear All

Just a quick reminder that after all the hard work of Tony Arnold and others in Thanet RC the trackside building is now complete and will have its grand opening this Saturday 24th September at 10am before our omnium road races all that day. Please pass onto the other rangers at BCP or anyone else in your clubs

Many thanks again all for your support in making this happen – especially to Tony

The opening should only take 5-10mins but would be wonderful if we could all be there – perhaps someone could take photos or get the press involved

Kind regards

Colin

VTTA (Kent) 25m Time Trial – 18/09/16

A number of club members made the trip to Brenzett for the last local 25 mile time trial of the season, organised by Southborough and District Wheelers on behalf of the Kent Group of the VTTA.

Conditions down on the Marsh were mild but overcast with a light northerly breeze making the leg to Ashford a bit of a struggle. Once again, Chris Fennell took top spot with a fine 51.30 although he admitted to being a bit tired after a long and busy season!

Club times in start order:_

Chris Bax (2nd claim): 1.01.19
Andy Hill (2nd claim): 1.02.14
Paul Kelk: 1.06.56
Martin Russell: 1.03.44
Andy McCall: 1.11.29
Colin Inett: 1.13.34
Chris Fennell: 51.30
Dave Danton: 1.03.21
Mark Palmer: 59.02

Please nominate for the Thanet Sports Awards 2016

Would be great if we could get some nominations in for all the great achievements both on and off the bike within Thanet RC. See below for details – it’s fairly easy to do as I’ve done a number of these. Thanks in advance.

Just a quick reminder to inform you that we have just over 3 weeks left for you to cast your nominations at this year’s Thanet sports awards event which is taking place at the winter gardens on Thursday 17 November.

https://www.thanet.gov.uk/the-thanet-magazine/campaigns/sport/thanet-sports-awards/

As mentioned previously, the event really is a great opportunity to reward and recognise either an individual, sports club or local school who has achieved great success during the last 12 months.

I have also attached the nomination form in word format if you are unable to access the form online. If all completed forms can be sent to myself that would be much appreciated.

Please do continue to share with anyone who may be interested.

Many thanks

Kind Regards

Call for commissaires.

To stop the continual cancellation of regional youth and adult races the region especially down here In East Kent we need more commissaires. If you are interested we could get BC to arrange a local course which I believe is free of charge. If you are interested let me know I will forward your name to Simon Simon Bedford at BC. Ken Jones, Zoë Bartlett, Heidi Hammond, and Adrian Lyons, Steve Inett please could you share with your clubs.
