SRC ACM 2018 – Letter and Agenda

This year we are trying a new format for the ACM meeting so that you can make a day or even weekend of it.

Full details can be found at http://canoeracing.org.uk/sprint/annual-consultative-meeting-acm/. Further reports will be added to this page nearer the meeting, which can be downloaded.

It would be great to see representatives from as many clubs as possible at the ACM.

  Sprint Racing Committee 2018 ACM – 13 October

As a departure from the ACMs format in recent years the SRC have decided to stage the event, along with the presentation of the 2018 trophies, in an afternoon and evening away from a Nottingham Regatta. The objectives are to take it away from the time pressure of the September Regatta and make it a more open and effective event. In addition the SRC wish to make the presentation of the annual Trophies more formal and give the winners a level of importance in line with their achievements.

The SRC want to make this a useful event for Sprint Racing as well as being an enjoyable social event without the time pressure of being attached to a regatta. Hopefully it will become an annual event and be able to move round the country to make it as accessible as possible.

With thanks this year to the Wey Kayak Club, it will take place at the Guildford Waterside Centre, Riverside, Guildford GU1 1LW on Saturday 13 October.

The plan is to make this a very social occasion as well as the formal events. The afternoon ACM and Presentations will be followed by a Buffet meal, followed by a live band.  They are the “The Fetcham Draught”, a well knowband in the Guildford Area.

The programme for the day is:-

1300     Visitors invited to an afternoon paddle, then tea etc from the kitchen.

1500     The Annual Consultative Meeting.

1630     Presentation of Trophies interspersed by two Keynote Speakers.

1800     Buffet meal of good quality. 

1930     “The Fetcham Draught” Band

2200     Depart

The SRC are heavily supporting the event but those wishing to enjoy the Buffet and stay for the evening, are asked to pay a SRC subsidised £5.00.  In order that the catering can be well planned for we ask each club or individual member to e-mail Jim Rossiter at Chairman@weykayak.co.uk with confirmation of attendance at the ACM and in addition the number of meals required.  As the meeting is open to all BC members if those not connected with a club wish to have the buffet please can they also contact Jim Rossiter. Bookings should be made by SUNDAY 30 SEPTEMBER.
