Happy New Year Masters,

Hope you all had a great break over Christmas / New Year and you are all looking forward to another great year of racing (hopefully less interrupted than the last two).

For the first Bleat of 2022;

IMPORTANT NOTICE – Membership Renewals

A reminder that 2022 memberships are now due for renewal. For insurance purposes, members must be financial in order to race. To renew your membership go to the following link https://memberdesq.sportstg.com//index.cfm?fuseaction=main&OrgID=10244 and log in with your Username and Password. If you have forgotten your Username and/or Password, you can use the retrieval options by clicking on ‘Forgotten your Password?’

Please do not leave renewing your membership until the day you plan to race, as a separate manual process is required by the race committee to upload membership details into RMS so that you can enter online. If you leave it until the last minute, it is likely that you will receive an error message indicating that you are not financial. Pre-race registration will continue to be required for all races in 2022.

[Editors Note: I don’t like the design of the new GameDay website. They have put light grey buttons on a white background which makes it very hard to find the ‘Next’ button to go to the next page. You’ll have to look closely to see them.]

From the Desk of the President

Committee Changes


A number of the current Committee members have indicated they will be stepping down at the next AGM in February.

I would encourage all Club Members to concider nominating for a position on the Committee to ensure the club can continue to function and provide great racing for all members. Please let me know if you are interested.

Seymour Savell-Boss
ACT Vets Cycling Club President.
