Notes from the Committee for Members' Information

Handbook Supplement
It was agreed that the supplement was correct except for the 50 mile TT record which should be allocated to Ewan Hendon. This will be notified on the website and in the next newsletter.
Club champions should also appear in the supplement and these will be published on the web and in the next newsletter.

Waltham Forest Come and Try Week
It was agreed that the club should take part in this activity. It has been discussed in the clubroom and most members put up their hands in support. On both Tuesdays 19th and 26th February 2008 the club will be opening its doors to the public. On offer will be a skills circuit on the bowls ‘green’, a bike doctor area and the rollers will be assembled for anyone to use.
On Saturday 23 February we will have a display at the Town Centre, Selborne Walk E17. The rollers will be on offer again for anyone to use, we will have a table for leaflets etc. and we will be under one of the Council's large gazebos. This will entail at least 10 club members to be in attendance at some time during the day from 8am to 4pm. On Sunday 24th February we will be hosting various distance club runs from Walthamstow Town Hall at 9am.
All members are asked to make themselves available for some time during these events.

Hog Hill
The Committee feel it is a good idea to move to Hog Hill as soon as it is ready. Early March is the time given by the owners (Redbridge Council) The facility will only have portacabins at this time. The main building will not be ready until May. The distance to Hog Hill is a concern. The club will organise a few runs to Hog Hill to familiarize members of the various routes. The club will meet there for one year and then review the situation.
The Tuesday Tens are booked to start on the 13th May and run for 11 weeks as normal. Using the 750m mini circuit we will run a 20 lap time trial. This will be a distance of 9.375 miles. By using the clubrooms and circuit as soon as they are ready we hope to be on top of the list when other benefits may come available.
