I have the form from the VMCC to reserve space for the club at the above event, it is filled in and ready to post.
I am not sure what happened at the planning meeting at Kevin’s but would assume that the event may have been mentioned.
Is it the intention of the Club to have a stand at this event?
These are, I think, the important points from the notes that accompanied the form-
The stand in the avenue of clubs is free of charge and the stand is automatically entered in the best club stand competition.
Each club which takes free stand space (approx size 30ft W 20ft D) will be entitled to 13 wristbands &12 machine passes to the whole weekends events.
These passes are for your members to display their bikes on your stand but not ride in the track sessions. People booking track sessions receive their own wristbands and paddock passes. Extra wristbands and machine passes will be available to purchase from Feb 28th and be sent out with the final instructions in June.
Your club will be issued with a contractor pass/van pass for set up and break down.
Bikes displayed will automatically be entered into the 1000bikes machine concourse competition.
If you want to ride on the track you need to book that yourself through the vmcc.net/1000bikes web site.
The VMCC would be pleased to consider advertising the event in your club magazine and would welcome contact details/advertising rates to be submitted to Jo Dunhill at VMCCHQ or e-mail email@example.com
Please let me know ASAP the CoM’s view on this and I will put the form in the post with my name as contact on it if you wish.
I will also put the details in the 2013 events section once your views are known
For more details have a look on the vmcc.net1000bikes web site.
With regard to telephone conference type meet I have access to a professional teleconferencing system though work. I have scheduled a test call with Martyn for 14th Jan just to make sure everything owrks OK and then will schedule one with all COM members very shortly after.
I have received the passes for the event from the VMCC- 8 person, 7 bike and 1 van, so not quite as many as I was led to believe.
Extra passes are available at £30.00 each for the weekend, if we have more people wanting to display their bikes than I have free passes for is the club going to part fund the extra passes?
About half of what I have are already spoken for.
[size=150]£30! That sounds a lot. You can do a BSB weekend of racing for that. What is included for £30.
Don’t remember a budget being set but I did miss the com meet earlier in the year when events were discussed.[/size]
