I will be asking the planners to act as the day organisers as well which happens in most other areas. I have now taken over as Captain of Richmond Golf Club but I’m happy to co-ordinate the league again. It’s just that golf will have to take priority over mountain biking at weekends so I’m not sure how many events I will be able to attend. I will still look after the equipment and sort out the helpers beforehand and results, accounts and reports afterwards. Dave Robertson is happy to continue to keep the web page up to date and John Dixon will sort out the results.
Hope you are well and enjoying “winter rules” ? will the OMM definately be on 9th, 10th september next year ? currently my event is scheduled for this date and I want to avoid a clash
Enjoying my golf but not the weather!! OMM Bike is definitely September 9/10th as it’s my granddaughter’s birthday the following weekend and I had to miss it this year. Her parents want to run in the OMM Lite as well. Event centre booked in Wensleydale and I’m going to check a few bridleways tomorrow which could be a mudfest!! I hope you can alter the date of your event so that you can ride
I will see what other dates are available….
Thanks. I’ll register the OMM Bike with BMBO
Hi again. I didn’t realise that you had already posted your event in the calendar. Sorry. I should have registered the OMM Bike dates earlier. We have got the event centre booked and outline permission from the National Park so I would be very grateful if you could move your event.
Michael Brough has asked if he can plan the Helmsley event in August (as his house is on the map) instead of the Howardian Hills event in May so there’s a different vacancy
Hi Steve, I don’t mind planning the Howardian Hills event as that is the area closest to where I live, unless you someone else desperate to plan in this area?
Hi Jeff. No other offers so yes please. Andrew Windrum is going to organise an MTBO event in Gilling Woods so the event centre will be near there
I still need planners for 3 events so please let me know if you want to volunteer. If I haven’t heard by December 10th (Newton on Ouse event) they will be removed from the fixture list.
April 22nd Yorkshire Wolds
August 26th Malham
October 21st Nidderdale/Wharfedale
Hi Steve, I’m happy to plan the Nidderdale event (or joint plan ?) assuming you don’t have any one else keen to do this one.
Yes please and thank you. I’ll get back to you with more details when I get home on Wednesday.
