UPDATE: Berghaus Long Sleeve Tees

10/10/2014 22:38:08

Unfortunately Berghaus cannot supply our order, which means I have had to source an alternative, in both colour, price and make. The 'RAB' brand is similar if not better quality, in dual colours, with the Ladies being Turquoise and Blue. Where as the Mens are two Blues. Both male and female garments are far more expensive than Berghaus, but I have been able to attain the same price as we were paying for the Berghaus ones. Added benefit with the RAB is they have small reflective marks on both cuffs and base of the neck.

ladies tee mens tee

Should any member NOT wish to have this alternative TEE please contact me as soon as possible.

Monies will be returned and you may wish to order the FREE TEE being offered by the Club instead.

Tel: 01934 414361 Mobile: 07554548188 Email: dmjaj93@gmail.com

My intention is to place the order for RAB Tees on Monday 20th October 2014.

Don't delay do it today!

Good news is the Free Tees ready for collection and I will be at training evenings .

There is one sample of the Male and Female RAB tees available to view if you wish. (Not all sizes are available to try on, but they do measure up very similar in size to the Berghaus tees.)

DAVE.

Please allow plenty of time to pick up your race number and get to the start of the race at 11.00am sharp!

2014 Off-Road Championship - Update!

10/10/2014 21:10:54

I had promised 2 further cross country races in this years championship. It was to be one race from three to count in this category. The final details of the Gwent league have now been announced and unfortunately the dates do not work for us. The first race is this Sunday clashing with the Muddle. The next one clashes with the Sodbury Slog (which many of you will have entered) and the December one clashes with the Cracker weekend. I want to give everybody the opportunity to gain points in this category so I am including the Bleadon levels 10K race to count in the cross country category. This is a local race put on by one of the supporters of the Cracker and was only left of the multi category because of a possible date clash.

I apologise for not being able to find a suitable alternative CC race but hope that you agree that this is a fair solution for a local race on a day when no other championship events are on. This means that this category will now be one race from two.

STOP PRESS : Please note that the details for the Bleadon Levels 10k have now been added to the Events Calendar and the Club Championship. This event has also been selected as a Grand Prix race so enter now for those extra 5 points!
