A specialist Trump hairdryer (that doesn't blow so hard the toupée comes unstuck)?
Are we all OK for Sunday.
I may not be able to stick around for as long as I'd like.
(No beers at canopy for me 😭)
If you turn up on Sunday you will be 1 day late. It's on Saturday 6th.
Massive filofax fail.
Ha ha! Good point :)
I'm officially out of the racing due to injury, so will be available to plug gaps after sign on.
Happy to whip if that helps. It's a job I've done before.
I meant Saturday.
And no I haven't joined the north metal thunder London black cats.
Dan - that's a real shame you can't ride. Do we still have a sprint team?
If you can help whip that would be great.also if you can help co ordinate the team sprints .
I know. I'm really gutted. My season is pretty much over.
I've got inflammatory arthritis in my foot and it's been flaring up over the last month. Not been able to train for the last 3-4 weeks, barely been able to walk for most of it. Even if I could start training again today I'd not be fit until DC6, and maybe not even then.
Right now I'm more worried about being able ride a bike at all.
Dan, that's pretty grim. Id try to get into the Rheumatology Clinic at GSTT. It's been really helpful for me.
I am happy to whip/judge, can also do some photos on my adult camera. I've benefitted from riding this the past 3 years without putting any real effort in, including on the track. In light of Dan's Henry VIII impression and my lack of racing it makes more sense that I help out.
I'm afraid it's looking very likely that I'm going to need to work at somepoint on Saturday, most likley in the afternoon.
Sorry to have to pull out.
That's a shame.
Maybe you can record some motivational slogans for us to play over the tannoy?
Your "ATTACK!" instruction always seemed to prompt people into action.
Dommy on the mic?
Such a shame. Your skills will be missed.
Yeah, hopefully. I'll check...
Dommy is confirmed MC.
@Crowbar do you want to whip and I will judge ? Or we can job share? I just can't be on my feet all day
Will we have enough for a team sprint without you though?
I thought you sprinter-types sat in deckchairs all day long anyway?
No problem swapping jobs during the day , infact I would encouRage it.
Still a results person.
I'll just jump on my bike to power you guys into turn 1 but give the rest a miss.
Apologies for the lack of communication, been out the country for most of July with work. Confirmation I will be riding.
Thanks for everyone who is coming on the day and to those that have helped before hand too.
A big thank you to Will, Dave and Dan who have helped arrange the meeting and cajoled British Cycling and HH to get us approved and legit.
On the day we need certain jobs to be undertaken and from the list of volunteers we have put together the following list:
To confirm the job roles agreed last night:
Car park directors: Sam & Sam
Sign on executives: Jason, Dan, Denny - Licence management.
Track Gate marshal: Jason/Dov
Track Side marshal: Ved
Judges: Dan, Ricky and Will.
Results: Steve Dubtap.
Head Bell and Lap management: Sam`
General Help/holders: Steve Parker, Denny, Geraint, Andy Han and Gutchings.
Chief Organiser DaveMac
Head of refreshments: DaveMac
Prize giving: Ricky
If you want to swap roles, please feel free.
Please can the sign on helpers be there by 12.30 so we are set up and ready to go for 1pm start. Everyone else please get there as close to 1pm as possible so we can help set up and Dave can run through any last minute instructions for the marshals etc.
Please can you make sure you are wearing a Grupetto T-shirt and cap so you can easily be identified in a crowd. If you don't have a cap we have some for sale and I can bring them with me on the day. If you haven't got a t-shirt can you shout as I'm sure someone on here will have a spare.
Lastly, please invite friends and family to come down an watch a bit of the racing, it would be nice to get a good crowd and then again at Canopy afterwards. We are going to be playing some of Wayne's bright times tunes at Canopy so it should be a good finish to the day.
Thanks again everyone.
Was also down for general help after Sam and I have completely cocked up the car park management :0)
