Andy Wickham has sent in an update regarding the Club Dinner and Presentation, to be held on 23rd January 2015 (more details below).

We currently have 14 people confirmed as attending (and £5pp deposit paid). A further 6 have indicated interest. We really need at least 20 people to make the dinner viable. We need to collect deposits by the end of October, or we may lose our booking. 

Please make every effort to commit to this event. Contact Andy to make bookings: he attends most of our club nights (the next should be Monday 13th October.

NBRC Club Dinner - Friday 23rd January - Splinters (Wavendon Golf Club)
3 course Carvery (veggie option also available)
Private venue for our exclusive use
Total cost £17pp (incl. money towards engraving costs)
With £5 deposit due before end of Oct

Let's make this an event the club can be proud of. 

Since the NBRC Facebook page was set up, the NBRC Forums haven't been used very much, indeed not at all for a few years now. I've therefore decided to take the forum down (as recommended at last year's AGM).

I've added a slider app to this website (click on the facebook symbol on the upper right margin of the screen). This should pop out a slider with the NBRC Facebook news feed. This may not work on all platforms. The slider app has been withdrawn (and it was causing problems with the main menu anyway) - for the time being, you'll have to use the menu link to reach the Facebook page!

Here are the updated league tables, as of the Astwood event on 20th August.

Here are the updated League tables. These tables are assembled using the rules here. The NBRC League uses the same placing points allocated in the open league. The Veterans league points are allocated by place on vets standard. The Handicap League is open only to NBRC riders, and gaining points depends on having a prior time on the course.

At recent Club meetings, we've been discussing a return to holding Club Dinners and Presentations, rather than recent practice of holding an informal event in Harley Hall. Andy Wickham has taken on the role of general organiser.

We are proposing to hold the dinner on Friday 23rd January 2015, at the Splinters Carvery, Wavendon Golf Club. This is a venue we've used previously. Dinner will be a three course carvery dinner (starter, main and dessert) and includes tea/coffee. There will be vegetarian and gluten free options on request - if you require these options, make sure you tell Andy.

The cost is projected to be £17 per person (included room hire and a contribution to engraving costs).

Andy is collecting deposits (£5 per person) now. 

We have a club meeting on 11th August at the club room 7.30pm onwards. No agenda so far, so it'll be a pretty informal meeting I guess.

I've updated the league tables - these include the Stony '10' on 6th august. See here for the way the points are accumulated - essentially, this is based on your seven best placings. As ever, let me know if there are any errors! I have still to do the Handicap table. Watch this the end of the season I'll post pdfs of the complete spreadsheets.
