Nottingham Clarion is promoting an Open 50 again this year. The Nottingham Clarion Open 50 also incorporates the National Clarion 50TT championship.

You might fancy riding it. Entries are available online at the CTT website.


If not, I need some help to ensure the smooth and safe running of the event.

Help is required:

Marshals -> to ensure the riders turn when they need to (2 at each turn ideally, i.e. 6 in total) and shout encouragement

Kitchen Fairies -> to ensure riders and helpers are fed and watered (2 people to make light work)

Signing on -> to ensure riders sign in and out on the dotted line, hand over and collect numbers

Push off -> to get riders off the start

Parking -> to make sure the riders park correctly and we keep the villagers happy (and the use of the Village Hall for another day)

Lots of cake!

Date: 03 June 2018
HQ: Granby Village Hall, Sutton Lane, Granby (where else)
Time: Helpers required to be at HQ before first rider starts (push off at 10:00)

Im unsure if I am racing this..... my Club Spirit says yes, my heart says, no thanks.... it took me a whole week to get over this race last year.

If I am not racing I will definitely be helping out.

its unlikely I will be racing

Thank you for coming forward.

1 1/2 down a few more to go. Don’t shout all at once.... Very Happy

This Open has a good reputation, not just for the course but also for the help and support and lovely cakes it offers ......

Thank you Mark.
I know have four - still need a few more to make this a successful and safe race.

It is a couple of hours plus you get to eat cake and support your club Smile

Anymore for anymore?

On last count (last night) we had 53 keen entries. Who else can spare time for their club on 03 June to keep riders safe, fed and make sure we run the great Open riders are accustomed to?
I need a few more volunteers ... and cake!

On last and final count 65 entries for the Nottingham Clarion Open 50

Still need some more hands on deck to make this a fun and safe event for everyone[b] - that includes the volunteers...

Not only do many hands make light work, they also make more cakes and help one another (marshalling is fun and even more fun when there are two....)

Hi Jess I think I can do this one but will need to confirm next week. Let me know if not required as under pressure from the builders to get stuff done at home Smile

Thank you, Al.
I’ll let you know. Might need someone at the HQ when riders sign in and collect numbers. I confirm.

We also still take cakes - if unable to help out on the day, cake is still welcome. You can drop it off at mine the day before or at the village hall on the day.

Hi

65 eager riders have signed up.

I have a number of volunteers but to make it safe and fun for them and share the load, I need another three happy volunteers from the club on Sunday, 03 June.

(Did I mention there will be cake?)
