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.


I think you've persuaded me Very Happy

Thanks for the update Hanna, good work all round.

As it stands we only have to pay a nominal affiliation fee rather than the full expenses most clubs have to pay.

Does this mean we owe someone a word of thanks? Or a pint? Beer

Go Team TriTalk, Paul. Very Happy

Don't worry RTYD, you get your money back at race registration.

As I am in the same situation, having entered 5 or 6 events as a non BTA member, do you have any experience of getting cash back at races BB?

If there's a fair chance then I'll join and see what happens, at 4 or 5 quid extra a race it will just about break even, and I'm sure there were one or two other benefits from BTA membership which were worth having.

Cheers all

Ian

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?).

Now that would curb the reservations I have about Team TT. Remember, without clubs putting on races, we don't have a sport in this country. Sad

Yes. You go to registration, show them your BTA/F card, and they hand you a fiver. Sorted!

Hanna's point was that it would cost on insurance and additional registration fees. However, would it be possible to do a race in association with an existing club? Ie we provide the marshalling manpower, the referees, the publicity, etc, they provide the Race Director and essentially become the promoter / technical provider of the race?

I much prefer that idea... far less of a headache for myself anyway!

I've not looked over the documents, but does BTA membership come with insurance that covers you during training as well as on race day? That could come in handy if you hit a pedestrian when out cycling or one of the blue rinse brigade sues you for splashing her in the pool.

yes bta (or whatever it decides to call itself eventually) does give you insurance cover whilst training - pretty sure its 3rd party cover against you being sued but it does provide you with a legal cover to go after anyone who injures you whilst training, there have been numerous threads on the merits of this
