Comment: So no new names there then – Ed
The regular Agenda items were discussed & the 2015 Centre Accounts & Balance Sheet were approved.
Comment: As no items were raised from the floor at either the AGM or Board I deduce that all our Centre riders & Club Members are completely happy with the way the Centre runs things on their behalf. – Ed.
I attended a Nation Trials Licencing Seminar last Saturday – the comment was made by John Collins the T&E C’ttee Chairman that it was clear the number of Insurance Claims made against your Events by Officials is quickly increasing because Observers are getting older [mostly pensioners?] & Officials using bikes at Events are also falling off [& older bones are more brittle] & that CofC’s need to remember their Duty of Care to their Official Team.
Phyllis & I have pre-empted this, as we have already decided & have stopped Observing at Sections where we consider that it is unsafe for us to observe. So – be warned – the Sports future is in your hands – here endeth etc. etc.
