There will be an end of season presentation for the 2016-2017 - South West Cyclo-Cross league. To be held at the Kenn Centre on Sunday 29th of January. - 3:30pm to 7:00pm. The plan is for the league to fund a simple buffet but to ease the load on the organisers it would be great if you could bring a dish along.
Prizes will be presented to the 1st 2nd & 3rd place in each category, providing at least 5 rounds have been entered as per league rules.
In addition to this, All people who are attending the presentation evening are invited to cast their vote for
two special awards. The first is the Mallen trophy for the most improved rider and the second is for the Royston Chalender trophy which is given for outstanding contribution to the league.
Voting is by paper ballot on the night so everyone have a think before the presentation who you would like to nominate.
Doors will be open at 3:30 and buffet will start as soon as the food arrives, we will aim to start the presentations at 4:30.
To help us plan a little, please could you let us know (email at email@example.com or contact through the facebook page) if you are attending and also numbers of your guests (i.e Bill +1, etc) and any foods you can bring. This will help with catering requirements and it may also be useful for lift sharing.
We will also have a suggestions board (positive and negative) regarding what went well (or not so well) throughout the season, so please let us know your thoughts in order that next season can be even better! Look forward to seeing you all there.

Qualification for the South West Championship Trophy (Juniors/Seniors/Women/Vets):
This is an open event and we warmly welcome competitors from outside the region. However, to qualify for the Championship element of the day’s events the competitors must have a permanent address within the SW Region of Devon, Cornwall or Somerset. In addition, a rider who regularly supports and competes in SWCX League events but who's permanent address is outside of the SW Region will be eligible for the Adult Championship Trophy's, providing they have competed in FIVE counting rounds prior to the championships during the current season.
There are two car parks, one at the main school site and an overflow car park across the main road by the all-weather pitches. When the main car park is full you will be directed to use the overflow car park, please obey the marshals. It is only 200m from the school and will have plenty of space.
The main car park will be temporarily shut to all traffic to allow the safe start of the Junior/Novice race at 1200hrs and the main race at 1330hrs. If you think you may need to exit the site at or near these times, then please park in the overflow car park which will have no such restrictions.
Please do not clean your bike and dispose of the mud on the car park, take your bike to a grass verge and clean it there. We would like to be invited back for next year.
Good news! The Southwest region has just edged over the 4% membership threshold. This gives back a fourth delegate at National Council.
