It is with a heavy heart and a sad indication of where we are that we have cancelled the End to End Teaser due to lack of Marshals.

We requested 10 marshals to come forward before 9pm last night.

We left it until this morning, in case of late influx, but we only had four people come forward as follows:

Chris Corlett, Fay Corlett, Ali Mazzone, Helen Withers.

We thank them for this, and hope they can help in the future.

Also, we put a shout out needing an XC race co-ordinator and XC race organisers for the 2015/16 National Series plus requesting people to put themselves forward for club positions. 

We have had Ali Mazzone come forward to organise one event as an XC race organiser, and four people have come forward to put themselves up for election as Treasurer.

We have a few people who want to come to the meeting, and some offers of assistance.

None of the other roles have any candidates at the moment.

If you can help, please contact Nigel at Nigel@ManxMTB.com.

Overall, its a depressing start to the day.

Manx Mountain Bike Club

 

needs YOU (yes, YOU)

The Manx Mountain Bike Club is run by a few committed volunteers.

We love riding.

We also love giving something back into the MTB community on the Isle of Man.

However as per all volunteer organisations many things are done by the few and we could really do with a hand to share the load. So…………

We have some very important roles that need FILLING before the 2015/2016 national series can go ahead in early October 2016 or we may have to look at a much reduced race schedule.

1.      XC Race Committee Member

2.      XC Race Organisers for all eight events planned

However it’s not all about racing. We also have the following posts that we are looking for potential candidates for the following roles at the AGM in October:

1.      Treasurer

2.      Secretary

3.      Social Secretary

4.      Press Secretary

5.      Chairperson

Want to know more or can you help (no matter how little, it all helps) ?

Next meeting is Wednesday 2nd September at 18:15 in Onchan.

Contact Nigel@ManxMTB.com if you can help or want to come along to the meeting.

Due to lack of interest it is with regret we have had to cancel the presentation night. Anyone who has paid will be fully reimbursed.

I will let all know when the club will hand out trophies. Thanks to all that have put a lot of effort in organising the presentation night and race series.
