Pinkenba ITT abandoned 

Message from Event Chief Commissaire:

The Individual Time Trail at Pinkenba (Sun 31st March 2019) was abandoned due to safety concerns. The number of trucks on the road made for unsafe conditions, along with a number of riders not using common sense and placing themselves and others in danger. All riders are reminded that it is their responsibility to know and obey the rules. While these decisions are difficult to make, everyone's safety is paramount. 

The club will look for alternatives to mitigate these risks, or find a suitable replacement course. All riders have a credit at any other race, or contact our Treasurer with your bank details if you would prefer a refund.

EXCITING OPPORTUNITY AWAITS

A vital (and influential) position has become available within the club.
 
The Club Handicapper role is now vacant and we need a replacement for Dan who has had to step down.
 
No need to worry regarding your experience, as Adam Harrison will be there to assist you. Adam has been the long term handicapper but he has insufficient time to devote to the  role full time but he will be there to assist and guide the new person.
 
So consider this please, it is a vital role and one that is needed urgently to be filled.
 
Contact Wayne Wilson (President) asap,   if you have interest and/or questions regarding this role.
