Murray Bridge update

Hi

Just a reminder that if you’re planning on helping with loading up and moving items to MB on Friday, the plan is to meet at the school at about 8.00am.

If you’re meeting us at MB to help set up the pit area, we should be there by 10.30 – 11.00am.

We’ve been allocated the same pit area as previous years (pit D). Refer to the info guide I sent out a few weeks back if you don’t know where that is.

Regardless of when you’re planning on coming up, remember that the official practice starts at 4.30pm so I want all riders and parents to be at MB and in our pit area by 3.30pm at the latest so I know everyone is there.

We’re required to provide a marshal for the duration of both practice sessions on Fri (4.30pm – 7.30pm) and then again for an hour on Sat morning (9.00am – 10.00am) so we’ll also divide these timeslots up at that point.

It’s almost game time.

Paul

 

 

Murray Bridge

Today all of the students have been issued with a SAPSASA top to wear at the race at Murray Bridge. They will need to ensure they bring these as well as their normal school top to Murray Bridge (in case it is wet and they need a dry top to put on).

Other things which need to be brought to Murray Bridge are:

  • HELMET
  • shorts (for riding in)
  • 5L of water per person (eg family of 4 = 20L water)
  • plates, cutlery, cups (these are NOT provided) – preferably disposable to save washing up
  • sunscreen
  • insect repellent
  • HELMET

Murray Bridge update

Hello

A few things:

  • If you are one of the people who have kindly offered to provide a toaster or kettle for the weekend, can you please arrange to have it dropped off to Kylie this week so it can be electrically tested ¬†and tagged.
  • One of the trailers we were planning to borrow to transport items to MB is now unavailable so please let me know if you have one we can use. We have people who can tow it (unless you want to) and it doesn’t need to be caged.
  • Our pit location has now been confirmed as being the same as last year. Refer to the info I sent a few weeks ago for the details. No word on our marshalling roster yet.

If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask.

Thanks

Paul

Murray Bridge information and training sessions

Hello again

Apparently, both of the dates I mentioned in my last post clash with other events meaning we’d be missing a number of riders. As such, we’ll try the following:

Sun 19th Aug 5pm at the school

This will only be an information session for the MB race.

Sun 26th Aug 1pm – 4pm at Vic Pk

Steve and Antonia Blakeborough will be taking this training session which will be divided into 2 x 90min blocks as per usual. Please let me know if you prefer the first or second block via email – pbroadley@aapt.net.au.

Thanks

Paul

Murray Bridge information and training sessions

Hello again

In the lead up to the Murray Bridge 24hr race we’ll be holding the following information and training sessions:

Sun 19th Aug 2pm – 4pm at the school

The first hour will be in the gym and solely focussed on rider changes to be sure we have that as slick as possible.

The second hour will be an information session for the race itself.

Sun 9th Sept 1pm – 4pm at Vic Pk

This will be the riders last opportunity to train in the vehicles before the race. I’ll ask you for your preferred time slot closer to the day.

Thanks

Paul
