Club News Letter from the Chairman Summer 2017

Posted on June 26, 2017

Dear Monoposto members (and non-members)

I did say last year that I would do a regular news letter to keep you informed of what
the Board are doing on your behalf. So far it has been relatively quiet although we will soon
be planning next year’s calendar which takes the bulk of the work as well as reviewing the
championship regulations.

There are, however, a few items that are worth mentioning, entries started off a little
lower than we hoped or anticipated. As many of you are probably aware we calculate our
entry fees based on anticipated entry numbers to cover the cost of the circuit hire. If we are 1
or 2 entries down this has a significant effect on the finances of the club. The good news is
that we had good entries at Brands GP and Silverstone is also looking positive, although this
might not quite cover the earlier shortfall there is a positive trend on entries.

A hot topic that is regularly brought to the Boards attention is paddock parking, we
have spent a lot of time discussing how best to approach this and haven’t really found a
good solution, but I would appeal to entrants that to some extent we can help ourselves by
trying to minimise the amount of space we all take in the paddock. I know we all like to have
our trailers, awnings and cars / vans / motorhomes close by but please think if it is possible
to maybe arrange your rig in such a way to make best use of the space available. I did notice
at Brands that several trailers could have been parked behind the awnings rather than
beside them and it would have made better use of the limited space we have.

As last year we have decided to arrange a members meeting to have an open
discussion in preparation for next year and obtain feedback from you, This is at present
planned for the Snetteron event on the Saturday evening so as before if you have burning
questions or items you want to raise it would be helpful if you sent them in beforehand.

Next year sees the 60th Anniversary of the club which I believe is a huge milestone
and we are at present looking at ways of celebrating this. As our plans progress we will keep
you informed!!

Finally I would like to say a big thank you to our Championship Coordinator, Rachel
who has taken hold of the job and shown both excellent communication and organisational
skills!!

Thanks to all

Eddie
