West Surrey CTC Newsletter - November/December 1985

Previous . Index


Intermediate Section.  David Pinkess is now co-ordinating Intermediate Section rides and would like volunteers to lead rides to contact him at 42 Hawkswell Close, Goldsworth Park, Woking or on Club Runs.  Even if you can only manage to lead one ride a year this will be most welcome.  Woking 5347

DA Magazine.  Well many of you have now bought a copy and I hope you're not dissatisfied.  The magazine, however, can stand to improve.  It will only do so if DA members write for it so lets have a few letters, moans, complaints, priase, fact, fiction or technical; get them in as soon as you can.  Any committee member will collect articles, letters and For Sale adverts from you.  The closing date for Xmas edition is 5th December 85.

Publicity.  Every DA member is asked to make an effort to welcome and speak to new members out on our rides.  The health of the DA depends upon recruiting new members and making them enjoy themselves with us.  Do introduce yourself to new members and be a credit to the Club.  Our members should be our best publicity.

Marshals Jackets. A number of CTC yellow marshals jackets have still not been returned following the Tour of the Hills.  If you've still got one, return it to Helen Juden as soon as possible, please.

Planning.  Guildford High Street is about to be pedestrianised; no cycling.  If you object direct your complaints to:

The Planning Officer,
Guildford Borough Council,
Millmead, Guildford.
Charity Ride. A Big Thank You to all who rode in the White Lodge Charity 50 miler.  Gillian Smith reports the sum received so far exceeds £1,200 and is still rising!  White Lodge will now be able to buy all the childrens trikes it wanted and other equipment.  Can a member (Gillian) please make sure that each trike has a CTC badge when it goes into service?

Hillclimb. Steve Pack and Dave Butler came equal first and numbers were considerably up on last year.  Arthur Jessup generously donated £10 which was split between the first three riders.  Twenty one riders entered the freewheeling competition, won by Dave Butler with Kevin Blackburn second.

Tourist Trial.  Helen Juden's new easy pace format proved very popular and the event was won by the Helen Gill/Dave Butler pairing.

Benstead Cup/Sheild. The Benstead Cup is running on very close marking so far the winner will be named at the Dinner & Dance (names like Dave and Clive are expected to feature!).  The ladies shield is again a close battle between two Helens and one Gillian!

Dinner.  November 23rd at Guildford Refectory again.  Good Music this year and food.  Tickets are a bargain at £10 from Gillian Smith at 6, Brooklyn Court, Woking (Woking 61294).  Please make sure you book early.

Sales & Wants. This section will now feature in the DA magazine.

Wednesday Rides.  George Aylesbury welcomes new participants on his Wednesday morning rides, contact George for details.

I will be retiring from the post of Newsletter scribe.  Best wishes to my successor and thank you to all the tolerant readers out there.

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.
