All communications about club events should be directed through the Assistant Secretary
He is:- Mr Phil Fern, 18 Bowden Lane, Marple, Stockport, SK6 6LJ. Tel:- 0161 427
Phil is quite happy to receive applications via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org If
your club wishes to promote any 'Club Events' then application has to be made to
the secretary at the beginning of the year (preferably by the end of January).
If you know that other club(s) use the same course on the same night(s) then please
liaise directly with them with a view to sharing the organisation and marshalling
duties. Before submitting your application make sure you comply with any restrictions
on starting times for the course you intend to use.
Club event organisers MUST be prepared to give an undertaking that they will provide
marshals and display warning signs to the same standard as that required for open
events. See the appropriate section of this handbook for further details. Although
the proposition to make rear LED lights compulsory in all CTT events didn't get the
two thirds majority required, it is a wise precaution to advise riders in evening
events to use them voluntarily.
When your event (s) have been approved by the secretary, send off the police notification
form to the relevant Police HQ and DON'T FORGET to send a copy to the Assistant
Secretary (Club Events). You are strongly advised to do this at least SIX WEEKS before
the date of the first event.
You can use unofficial timekeepers for club events but it is always advisable to
use a good quality stopwatch. Times recorded should be used where appropriate on
open event entry forms but rides in club events cannot be considered for official
At each event use the official signing on sheet and make sure that every rider signs
the relevant declaration. If a rider is 'guesting' with you make sure that you have
some contact details in case of an accident. Keep these sheets in a safe place until
the last club event of the season has been completed then add up the number of rides
for the whole of the season and calculate the total amount of club event levy. Keep
the signing on sheets so they can be produced as evidence if required and send a
note indicating your club, the number of rides plus a cheque for the required amount
(made payable to CTT) to the Club Event Secretary (Not the Treasurer) as soon as
possible after the last event. The cut off date for levies is the end of October.
CTT have declared that for 2017 the levy will be £2.00
All new riders should be handed a copy of the notice
