KCC Annual General Meeting
Thursday 31st August , Old Village Hall, Charles Cl, Old, Northampton NN6 9RQ
This year's AGM takes place after the final evening time trial of the season. We need at least 30 people to make it count, so please make every effort to attend. The venue will be Old Village Hall (same as the TT HQ) and I'm sure one or two members will be visiting the White Horse for half a lager shandy afterwards if you want to make a social event of it.
The AGM is your chance to shape the way the club is run and to vote for your nominations for the committee and other official roles. Even though some posts are already occupied every position is up for grabs, so if you're interested in getting involved please put your name forward. Feel free to contact any member of the committee for more info.
Owing to the fact I'm selling my house and downsizing I need to find a storage solution for our club trailer that currently occupies a garage I will no longer have. Does anyone have any options or suggestions in and around the Kettering area please preferably without an ongoing cost attached? It's obviously got our coaching kit in it so we would need weekly access to it potentially, particularly during the winter months for the lighting systems.
Thanks in anticipation, Mark

Derby Velodrome Track Sessions
Rockingham Forest Wheelers coordinates the track sessions at Derby. New track riders are encouraged when there are enough to make a coaching session. Riders need to be old enough to meet insurance requirements of track or BC (9/10) and strong confident cyclists. Track cost, bike hire & shoe hire brings it to about �30 per rider.

Santander British National Youth Championship - 9th July
There was a great atmosphere at the British National Youth Championships on 9th July in Milton Keynes. All the cyclones that took part found it a tough day with some excellent rides from other competitors but the cyclones made a great effort and it was a great experience to be part of.
Fete du Velo, Redbourn - 9th July
Dominic Bell had a great day and worked hard to get a fourth place at the Fete du Velo at Redbourn today.
This one is definitely worth adding to next year's calendar.
