No need to give me any details.

In order to enter races as a TriTalk member you do not have to join the BTA.

However, if you want to tick the BTA box and save yourself a few quid (usually a fiver) on the day insurance then you need to join the BTA. As a club member it'll cost you around 38 I think... not too sure.

Hanna, darling, you are, as always, a fountain of knowledge both useful and valuable (as well as having the most famous bottom on the website - I must work out how to post those pictures of your front soon )


Thank you... you don't have to worry about those pics... I'm sure they're happy where they are.

A very stupid question, I am sure but...

What does this mean for 'us' by which I mean the unaffiliated lot who usually enter ourselves as clubless. Does this mean that we will now come up with a club name agaist out entry, or, based on the last post, does it mean that we have some sort of 'qualifing' membership with the BTA which allows entry on that rate, rather than paying the day rate each time?

I am sure this is not the case, as otherwise there would probably be more than a tenner involved, but prehaps you could expand a little?



You can enter yourself as a TriTalk club member to races but it won't give you any discount. You will get a club name against your name on the entry details.

The biggest benefit from this is that those who choose to affiliate with the BTA can do so at a discounted rate.

All I can recommend is that you give them a call next week to sort it out.

Very cool that you've sorted this out Hanna. Doesn't affect me, as I'm a member of TriLondon (hmmm, gotta get this year's membership cheque over to them...) but it should save a bunch of other people some money.

Of course, if you save a fiver (?) on your BTA sub, you are morally obliged to buy some TT kit Smile

Just another bit of info - don't forget that if you still have an old day membership card from an event done last year ( when not a member) you can also get 10% off the 38 fee - as I've just done. Cool

I know the BTA sometimes get some stick on here but when I phoned to join last week the membership pack arrived the next day. I was impressed. Very Happy

We're not... it's an internet only club which does not organise events or run training sessions and therefore it is a little different from most others.

I was thinking about that bit this morning. For 2007 then perhaps we ought to think about a smallscale race (club champs instead of Ludlow?).

If we did that, and were BTA affiliated, then we would have to pay insurance and I think it changes the nature of the club quite drastically.

As it stands we only have to pay a nominal affiliation fee rather than the full expenses most clubs have to pay. We also don't need to have a CPO or consistution etc. That may change were we to organise events.

I'm not saying it couldn't be done, but it could have quite a few potential implications which would require a bit of sorting. I'm happy to look into it, but not just now... maybe in a few months if people are genuinely interested in the idea.
