Here are some notes from the ACTC on Tour meeting held by the Stroud Motor Club on 13th January.
A reminder that Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club are having a meeting on 28th February at Trethorne Leisure Park, to which the ACTC and other motor clubs and members have been invited.
Further details on the upcoming Launceston meeting are below.
28th February OPEN MEETING at Trethorne update
This is a reminder that the purpose of setting up this meeting was, and still is, to provide an opportunity for members of our club, neighbouring clubs, and representatives of the organisations we are involved with, to come together and start a conversation about “The Direction of our Grass Roots Sport” and ways to come together to make its existing or new forms more attractive to both competitors and organisers.
Sorry that may sound a bit pompous, but it is clear from conversational comments and reports that there are problems with what we do now and we need to look at the future.
In early January I sent email invitations to as many local clubs, as I thought might be interested, whose emails were listed on the ASMC website, as well as to ACTC, BTRDA, MCC. I may have missed some people but I know word has also got around, and I hope as many of you as can will come to the meeting.
The Agenda is not yet fixed but will include:
Cooperation between clubs
Management of the calendar
Age profiles of both competitors and organisers
The costs of competing
New types of events
If you will be coming please ring me Warin Kelly on 01822 870393, or Pat Gomm on 01566 784348, so that we can get an idea of numbers, and make sure we have a big enough room.
If you are unable to attend but have any comments on this matter please feel free to post them on our club face book page. Or send them to John Turner at [email protected] who will be happy to include them in our newsletter.
Warin Kelly, Chairman, Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club
