Here are the main action points / headlines from last fridays meeting.

There were no new members this month.

Time Trial – Nick – In the 2 up we had teams that did well. And as such after on event, Rich Whitney and Ben Harvey are in top spot in the Je James league. The next event in the series is a 10 mile tomorrow (6/4/2013) on Hatfield Woodhouse.
A new North Mids Championship event is at the end of April. There was sad news that a Caravan hit a cyclist on the Hull based, V718 course.

Road Race – James – James gets all of the race licence sent to his address and then forwards these on. As James has to travel with work this may take slightly longer than anticipated so apologies if you are waiting for yours. Rob and Darren rode the first half of a vets race before it was cancelled due to snow. James T and Danny made a start a few weeks ago.

The North mids road race league starts at the end of this month. Discussion about the road race league and which groups people will be in for the coming season.
The chain gang mad a welcome return last Tuesday (2/4/2013) it is currently departing at 6:00 pm sharp.

Mintys road race – Andy needs help with Marshalling – ten marshals needed. he only has two at the minute so needs 8 more to put the event on. If anyone can help out it’s on the 5th May please email info@rutland.cc . Bren is going to do some pictures. The HQ is at Haworth.

Social – Not much to report here… Cleethorpes, decided on the date of Sunday 7th July unless we have a deluge of requests to change it, so note that date in your diaries.

Annual Do – We discussed a few new different venues. More to come on that one but the date is fixed (venue dependant) at Saturday 16th November.
Meeting venues – Any ideas ??? We are still unsure whether we can make the Palin suite at the University arms our home so if anyone has any ideas…email info@rutland.cc

Teacake Night ride in the summer is being planned. The idea being that we will have a few pints in the evening somewhere and then head out for a summer evenings spin when the pub shuts. Possible date for this is Friday 21st June so keep the date free is you fancy that.

The latest clothing order has arrived, email simon@rutland.cc for more details. We will press ahead with the next order very soon so if you want other items then again contact Simon. We are going to order some arm warmers with the next clothing order.

Big thanks went out to Andy Elston for organising a fantastic trip to Majorca this year. 30 people made the trip and a great time was had by all despite the slightly inclement weather at time!
