Dungarvan CC Notes 26 March 2014

DCC License Renewal

We would remind people again that Club Membership and Cycling Ireland renewals are due at this point in time. The club has left any licenses and numbers that have arrived with Paddy Morrissey in Cyclesports. Please note that you will need to pay club fee’s before you can collect your license. Paddy can accept these in the shop.

If you are racing and you haven’t gotten your license – please print out your license status page from Cycling Ireland and show that at sign on time. It’s also an idea to bring last years numebrs with you, just in case they don’t have any spares. Also invest in a box of pins.

DCC Club Gear Order

The club gear should arrive this week, we will sort it out into the individual orders and contact people for the balance of their payments this weekend – if you need the club kit for the weekend races can you please let Derek Troy know.

Racing News

With only two races of the new season, Damian Travers has earned a quick upgrade from A4 to A3. Chapeau Sham ! The upgrade can’t be far away either for John Hodge after his victory in the A4 Race Paddys day in Carrick. The club pulled off an unprecedented 1-2 Finish with John being followed home by Damian. A well deserved win for John, after the two lads took off at Kilsheelan on the 2nd lap and held off the hard charging bunch on Sir John’s Hill.

Next week is Aquablue Classic on Minane Bridge Circuit, the week after is Fermoy race on the Castlehyde Circuit.
Introductory Spin

The introductory spin is working out well with numbers increasing week on week. There will be another couple of weeks of this spin and then we will look to get a Group 4 running every sunday.

Please contact the club on info@dungarvancc.com or drop your name into Paddy Morrissey in Cyclesports or Tony or Siobhan O’Mahony in O’Mahony Cycles.

Predict Your Time League Race
The Predict your Time TT League once again kindly sponsored by Liam Rossister Meats will be back on your calendar for the 2nd of April (6:15 for the first couple of weeks) and will run for 5 weeks.

The open race is scheduled for the 15th of June.

With the PYT League and League Race, we will be looking for volunteers to marshal, if you do not volunteer we will end up drawing names from a hat and scheduling marshalling duties each week for people.

Cycling Quote
“Don’t count the things you, do the things that count” Zig Ziglar there referring to hill intervals.
