I thought I would give you all an update as to the status of this weekend.
In the past we have been able to accept memberships on race mornings and override the AKA electronic system. However, the AKA has now taken this option off the clubs and memberships must be done prior to the electronic update the race secretary does before each race meeting.
It is with great regret that I am writing to you today with regards to our opening meeting of the 2012 championship scheduled for this weekend.
Recent weather and the forecast of more bad weather this weekend, has forced the Nepean board and our committee to cancel this weekends event.
Major track and groundwork that has taken place over the summer at Nepean to improve the long-term management of the venue has been halted. Due to the
extreme weather patterns experienced over the last month, rendering the work incomplete at this stage.
Both parties are doing everything possible to get the venue serviceable as quickly as possible to allow not only our club but also give the other clubs that use the venue the opportunity to get their seasons under way.
Therefore for this weekend our committee has offered the Nepean board help in getting things ready by way of help via a working bee.
The NSWSKC will be looking after the grounds (lawns etc.) whilst the Nepean crew continues with the track.
If anyone has a ride on lawn mower or a whipper snipper or a normal lawn mower and a few hours to spare on Sunday please feel free to come out after 10am and lend a hand. The club will put on a BBQ lunch. Please let me know if you can assist so we can cater for lunch.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank the people that pitched in last weekend and helped out with some clean up work after the Thursday night flood.
Kim Bright will also be out at Nepean on Sunday for further registrations for club membership.
We have been informed that NO MEMBERSHIPS CAN BE DONE IN THE MORNING OF THE RACE MEETING.
We will now have 2 weeks for you to have your membership up to date before our 4th March meeting so please organise to have it done. They can also be done at PKW on a Saturday Morning.
Our next meeting will be the 4th March with Cadets (midgets) to volunteer. Could you please notify the club of your intent to do the volunteer day for your child.
Round 1 will move to the rain date of 22nd April.
I don’t have everyone’s email addresses so if you could help spread the word, that would be a great help.
Don’t forget the CCSKC has their first round of 2012 on next Sunday, I hope to see you there.
If anyone has any questions please contact me for clarification.
* The club is also looking for a small chest freezer, if anyone has one they are looking to get rid of please let me know.
Following last weeks wash out we are going to attempt to hold practice again this Sunday 12th.
For those who were doing OLT licence testing we will be doing them Sunday if in the event we get washed out again we will most likely be holding the
theory testing at PKW the following Tuesday but will confirm at a later date. Also those who were booked in for Have A Goes, this will still go ahead as well.
All people participating in these actives need to be at the circuit by 8:30am to register. IF you know of anyone planning on comming please recomfrim with us.
For club members, please be reminded that club rego and membership can be paid either at PKW Saturday or at Nepean on Sunday please organise this prior to the first race meeting. Remember, you will not be permitted on track until your membership is paid.
For Round 1, the following week (19th) it will be clubman heavy doing their volunteer duties. Please let us know if you are planning on running clubman heavy and that you will be present to do your volunteer day. Again if you know of someone who is planning on doing this please confirm with us also.
With Tony and Ann Johnson retiring from the canteen we have had a number of people step up to help Rachael during the day however, no one is avaiable to do the BBQ. Therefore it will be required to be a volunteer position and will be allocated from the list of volunteers on the day. It can be rotated during the day however we will need to allocate someone each meeting to it. We know this wont be popular however it needs to be done.
Our committee met with the committee of the CCSKC last Wednesday and the meeting was a very successful one with both committees committed to
moving in the same direction this year and beyond. A number of strategies were mapped out and i am sure this season will be a great one for everyone involved in the sport.
If anyone has any further question do not hesitate to contact me.
Hopefully we will get to see you all Sunday.
