Crackin' news Mal. I'll make sure its in the diary.

We'll have to get a group together to start work on it for 2010 - hopefully you will have even more helpers for organising and preparation this year. Count me in anyway.

Confirmation that the Grampian Grand Prix will take place at the Grampian Transport Museum, Alford. Letter came this morning.

There is a second event on that day so we have to vacate by 2pm which is the same as last year. I am concentrating on reinforcing what we did last year so the format will be the same but hopefully slicker and once i've had a chat with Andy and Peter we might throw in some changes to the races but nothing major.

What would be nice is a full field of 60 Seniors to allow the three senior races to split into 3 groups. Due to see Euan soon about the youth races as well.

It was too slick last year. Can I have some more grip please.

Will it have stopped snowing by then?

Sadly it clashes with the Scottish Crit Champs, so we might be limited in the big boys and 'B' Race riders but even if we are kept limited to our 2 teir system for Seniors it will be no problem.

Hopefully get a big north contingent again as the Forres, Moray Firth and Cairngorm riders really boosted the racing and were very active.

The pursuit type races were really good (I thought) and could be rolled out for more riders as a separate contest (the wee ones could do the half lap circuit).

As long as they pay a day licence and fee then they are normally covered I think. SC sent through an organisers pack inc a CD, quite impressed given some of the things SC don't do well.

The crit might have an impact but it would still beg the question with the numbers riding EL and those who race normally, why 60 seniors, male and female isn't achievable. Just have to work on those who are unsure and the minority who viewed last years event as somehow being detrimental to road racing.
