NEW RULING ON “STOP SIGNS”

Message from David Degenhardt.

Stop signs( as opposed to give way signs) on race courses have over the years been marshalled without incident. However a recent ruling from the chief referee in conjunction with SAPOL has changed that. A club marshal is no longer qualified to do  this.

I was advised in late March that all Masters/Vets riders must now actually “stop and go” at stop signs. For those unfamiliar with the term this involves unclipping on one side and stopping long enough to tap  the ground. All referees have been instructed to brief riders accordingly and don’t be surprised if you are observed at close range.

Fortunately our club does not have many effected courses but the Apr 30 Harrogate event does. There is a STOP SIGN at the end of Pfeiffer Road at its junction with the Woodside/ Nairne   Road.

We are looking at sending someone to attend a two day course to gain the necessary qualification to allow us to marshal stop signs.

A BIG “THANKYOU” AND BON VOYAGE TO AVIS PEARCE

Avis Pearce has been a tireless worker for the AHMCC for many years. No job has been too daunting for her.

She was always the first to arrive on race days to set up the hall before being a vital member of the Registration team. If not riding she would organize the prize money before going out to be a finish judge. After the races she was diligent in ensuring all numbers, hat covers and transponders had been returned. And all this times four at Goolwa! She is definitely a multitasker.

Many Members may not be aware that she took it upon herself to source new numbers and hat covers after the fire. This meant a lot of leg work but the end results were excellent quality at the right price. She was also instrumental in the design and purchase of our smart new medals. She scoured the whole of Australia to get the best result!

Avis has tendered her resignation from the Committee so she can cross off her bucket list the few areas of the Globe she hasn’t yet cycled. We wish her well and look forward to hearing of her adventures.

Her contribution to the smooth running of our Club will be missed.

THANKYOU AVIS!

Some very close finishes which highlighted that our timing system is not perfect when handling bunch sprints!
However we cannot afford the cost of MyLaps.
