** Changes to the Summer Ten Series, read more...**
This year we have a made a few changes to our Summer Tens at Greatham,
the key points are as follows;
Each event is an "Open Event".
Entry online via the CTT site.
You can leave us a "paper entry".
Entries will close on the Thursday for the following Wednesday.
Start sheets will be published on the Monday prior to the event.
No postal startsheets.
The usual competitions and prizes will still be in place.
£5 entry fee.
Possible late entries may be excepted, spaces announced on our facebook feed - see above.
We have made the changes for several reasons but mainly to make the entry
procedure more transparent, we have had a lot of riders last year asking
us to guarantee them a ride as they are travelling a distance or work late,
these measures should address these issues. On a similar issue we also
had a problem last season at our Buriton event where a few riders thought
the entrance fee was included within the Greatham Series combined fee.
Entering via the CTT site will alleviate any doubt and will be more transparent;
also if we cancel any event through rain we can refund you on-line.
So how is this all going to benefit you?
All the events are "open" thus the results will count towards Vets Standards, age records, South DC points competition or if needed, open event times for National events. If the events are a "fiver" then Priority will be given to the regular riders who rode and supported the Greatham Series last year. If the event has a £9.00 entry fee then it is normal entry conditions. Some events may have additional T&C but just remember to leave those long socks at home. If we do not have a full field then we will have "club event" places available. The number of places available will be published on our Facebook Page, they will be a FCFS basis only.
Is there a league fee? Yes, the same as other years it helps
to cover the costs of the Trophies this year it is £3.00 but free for those
previous League Riders who have entered all the events.
What happens if I pre-enter but can't make it on the night, will I get a refund or credit? No, it is just the same as a DNS in any other Open. Any rider on the start sheet we will have to pay a levy whether they ride or not. It is part of the problem we had last year, riders who missed a few events thought they should be able to ride the Buriton event for free.
On the line entries will be available when? Numbers will be known once we have downloaded the entries from the “Open Event”, we will publish it either Sunday or Monday, they will be on a First Come First Served basis.
