Hi All,

I’ve just realised that I booked the next Rec Ride on the calendar for next Sunday 4th Sept and didn’t notice that it is Fathers Day.

Bugger !

To ensure that all of you mums stay at home and organise the kids to prepare breakky in bed for the fathers and that all of you fathers stay at home and enjoy it, I’ve decided to alter the date of the next Rec Ride until the week after.

It will now be Sunday 11th September.

The Rec Ride after it has also been pushed back a week (and away from the long weekend) and is now on Sunday 9th October.

So alter your Calendar and get yourself to Wauchope in a couple of weeks to enjoy the ride.

Regards

Trevor Dickson
VP Recreation PMCC
"Enjoy the Ride"

Deb Nugent Handicap and Northern Division Appreciation

Today we acknowledged the two groups of people who made the Northern Division possible. Michael Percival accepted a Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of Michelle and Percival Property who were the Event Sponsors. The absolute total commitment to helping us make this event a success, down to loaning vehicles as race cars and supplying a cameraman, was acknowledged and appreciation shown by all present.

The volunteers, of whom there were many, were also acknowledged. The huge amount of work that goes on behind the scene organising medals, generators, cool rooms, coffee and food supplies, first aid, photography, drivers, commissaires and traffic management was revealed and the coordination of it all attributed to Joan Hawes and Phil who put months of effort into the logistics and planning of this event. The many individuals (totalling over 30) that also contributed their time and effort on the day and in the lead up (including 2 working bees) were acknowledged and thanked by all present and by Michael Percival who rated the event as one of the best organised events he'd been part of.

Today we raced the Deb Nugent Handicaps with 2 trophies at stake for the Open and Junior Categories. A lot of pressure on the handicapper today with several visiting riders and changed abilities.

In the juniors we had 9 yo Noah Michael De Wright leading out and putting in a strong effort over a hilly course to try and keep away from the pursuing field. In the end it was Scratch rider Sam Capper who rounded in all riders and sprinted it out with fellow scratch rider Jonah Stephen Hamer with Sam in first, Jonah second and then Isaiah De Wright in third. Lachlan McDonald put in a good effort to take 4th followed by Noah and Cam Griggs. Fastest time, Sam Capper.

In the open it was Peter Brown who led out the field. Peter last won this event in 2003 and was keen to retake the trophy. However with a strong field behind and some big groups forming early in the race it wasn't to be for Peter as our scratch riders, Sam Cox and Glenn Mathiske mopped up all comers. Glenn was actually off block but was late to the start, then with Ben Cross put in a splendid sprint to the line on the bell lap, presumably as practice. When the final group of about 12 riders came round for the final sprint on the final lap it was Sam Cox who took the honours in the sprint, followed by Glenn then Ben Cross.

Thanks to our handicapper today, Simon ไซม่อน Andrews and our Commissaire Wayne Castle. Thanks to our traffic managers Louise Grigg, Georgina Pender, Tony Cox and Chris Sandbrook, to Joan on registration and Phil cooking up the best BBQ I've had this weekend.
