Just a quick summary for now – just back from the meeting. More later and I’ll also be sending a more detailed update to the Friends who have supported the Rally thus far by their membership. But in brief:
- The Rally will definitely be on in 2015! To date (including Sportive revenues so far) we’ve raised funds of around £2000, which will cover the critical event insurance. There’s still lots of fundraising to go to cover venue hire, toilet/showers etc., but we’re confident that this will be reached.
- Grass track racing will be back! This is subject to final official confirmation but it is close to certain – there is huge goodwill to get grasstrack back to York. There will also be roller racing.
- We are pleased to invite all and any cycling organisations, clubs and associations to exhibit FREE OF CHARGE at the Rally!
- Campsite booking details have been finalised and online booking will be available very shortly. If you wish to camp as a group/club this will be possible too – just specify the group as part of the booking process.
I think that’s the main points for now – but also a reminder that the Sportive is coming up next weekend (Sunday). We could really do with three more volunteers who can help us with marshalling and managing control points. No experience necessary. If that could be you please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP, or call Paul Reid on 016973 43089 (landline, only until Monday) or 07770 134553 (mobile, any time).
Finally a huge thanks to all who attended – it was a very positive and purposeful meeting!
