PLEASE GET YOUR CLAIMS AND NOMINATIONS IN FOR CLUB TROPHIES ASAP

Post by George » 10 Oct 2019 21:40

Every year, members' racing and other achievements are recognised with trophies and awards in a wide variety of fields. Where possible, presentations are made at the Annual Dinner (see http://beaconrcc.org.uk/2019-annual-din ... sentation/).
With some trophies and awards, it's easy to know who's won: the TT Sec has the times from the 10-mile TT Championship, for example, and can obviously see who was fastest. With other things, the award depends on achievements that club officials might not know about unless riders tell them. In those cases, if you think that you might've won, you need to make a claim. That's a fancy way of saying that you have to get in touch with the relevant bod on the Committee to let them know what you've done.
Because there are so many awards, and it's easy to forget what you need to do for which, here's a list of trophies and awards, with the ones that need claiming highlighted. For full details, see the PDF on the club website (http://beaconrcc.org.uk/wp-content/uplo ... s-2019.pdf). If you're unsure about anything, ask me or another Committee member.
Claims need to be made by the end of Friday 18 October. You can DM me via this board, or e-mail me (george [at] beaconrcc [dot] org [dot] uk), or you can contact the club officer who does the admin for the relevant field (e.g. TT Secretary Martin for TT trophies). If anything's unclear, reply to this post.

Just two days left for claiming trophies!

We're still awaiting claims for several 2019 trophies. Surely, for example, someone wants to be crowned Beacon's Sportive Rider of the Year?

The deadline for claiming trophies is Friday, and claims are invited from all paid-up Beacon members.

In this context, I think that counts as an audax, Tim. But I thought a couple of people did Ride London, didn't they? Fred Whitton, anybody? And what about the Mad March Hare and its summer sister event: did none of our people do those?

Surely somebody did something?

I know George I was joking! Well I rode Velo Birmingham in 5hrs2mins on no training so give it to me if no-one else claims but I know Gavin Passmore was in top 10 finishers and Stu White did it way quicker than me too and sure several did Ride London and think some did Paris Roubaix so you should get an influx of claims any moment

Last call for prize claims. There is a trophy up for grabs awarded to "The junior member who, during the course of the year, secures the highest number of road race points from his/her twelve best results, as follows: Points are calculated from the rider’s finishing position. That normally involves 10 points being awarded for first place, 9 for second place and so on down to 1 for tenth place. However, where the race classification gives BC points down to fifteenth place, 15 points are awarded for first place, descending to 1 point for fifteenth place." Think your child is in with a shout? Let us know here by Sunday eve please.
