Welland Valley AGM - and volunteer(s) required for important Club roles

Dear All
Please note for your diaries that the Annual General Meeting of Welland Valley Cycling Club will be held at 7.30pm on Monday 7 November 2016, at Harborough Town Football club. I will be sending the formal notification and paperwork out in due course, but thought it worth circulating the date well in advance.

As usual, the AGM will approve the club’s officers for the next year. The Committee is always pleased to hear from people who would like to take a role in how the club is run. In particular this year, we will be looking for a person, or persons, to take over the roles of Press Secretary, Webmaster and Off-Road Secretary. It is possible that the Webmaster and Press Secretary role could be combined. All three roles are currently done by Dean Barnett, who has indicated a wish to step down from them. Dean has – amongst many other things - been outstanding at ensuring that there are clear and exciting communications on the website, the facebook page and in the media about all aspects of the club’s activities.

WVCC is s thriving club, and we really need to fill these roles to ensure that both club members and others know about us. If anyone is interested in taking on these roles or would like to find out more about them, please talk to Dean or me (Dean’s email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). For avoidance of any doubt, the Webmaster role does not require technical skills, beyond the ability to write content and post it to the website/facebook.

You can find a full list of the officer roles for the club on the website.

Regards,
Stuart

WMCCL Rd 3 - Henley-in-Arden

Results are in from a warm, rolling and fast Henley-in-Arden.http://www.racetecresults.com/results.aspx?CId=27&RId=20098

On a tight compact course featuring a sun baked clay ascent the Welland Valley cross riders enjoyed the warm conditions. A maze of tapes, lumps and bumps required high levels of concentration in the frenetic off-road racing. 
Vic Barnett maintained his 100% record winning the Over 70's, showing many younger Over 50's how it is done by finishing 15th in the Ladys / Over 50 Vet combined race. Marc Henderson was 36th in the Vet 50 category as he steps up his training ahead of next week's 3 Peaks Cyclo-cross. 
Nicola Traynor made a welcome return to the league, showing great agility to finish 6th V40. Sarah Vigrow just missed out on a podium finishing 4th Vet 45.
At the younger end of the age spectrum Rudy Killworth showed great technical ability as he danced his way round the course to finish 6th Under 12. He was backed by Dan Henderson and Huw Wilson who had a great personal battle with Dan just piping Huw in 13th & 14th place. Fay Garner is in great form and rode brilliantly to 5th girl in the Under 12's. 
Brooke Traynor has been doing some secret training, it paid off as she sprinted to 9th Under 10 girl. 
Making it a great family day out Kian Traynor joined Thomas Danvers in the Under 14's race.Thomas placed 24th after a tight race with Kian who finished 26th.
Eleanor Partridge secured another top 10 in the Under 14's girls race with a strong 9th. 
There was another tight tussle between David Wilson and Adrian Killworth in the combined Vets 40 plus race. David just piped Adrian by a handful of seconds as the both placed highly in their age groups. David, 19th Vet 40 and Adrian, 22nd Vet 45.
