Vintage Tankard – 2018 – Results

A clear sky and frost gave a very cool, but sunny start for the 37 riders from Ross, Newport and RDFCC on this inter-Club contest our Hilly Lydbrook 15 mile course. All Clubs take something from the day. RDFCC retain the tankard with impressively consistent time over the top 6 with an average of just under 42mins, Earl fastest with 40:41. Newport next with a team average  of 43.5mins and fastest time of the day for Owen Burgess 39:55 supported by very fast times from a group of talented younger riders. The Ross team average not far behind at 45mins and Louise Hart smashing the Womens Course Record by over 5 mins setting 44:49 to beat.

Many thanks to the many helpers. Rob and the cake makers and providers for the refreshments at the Hall, Martin, Ant and the other Marshals out on the course, Ian pushing off.

Mid year we also created a post of Ride Calender co-ordinator which is currently done by Ian Hall.

The position of Secretary is especially important. If you feel that you can take this on and want to know more about the role please get in touch with Martin who can help.

2.  Important request. If you are in possession of any of the club trophies please return them to a committee member ASAP. They must be back before the AGM and the sooner the better please.

3.  Awards. Please let us know if you have achieved anything special this year, especially sporting events. We cannot ask everybody individually and rely on people telling us what has gone on. If you know of some one who has been successful please tell us and quickly.

Please think about these items. The club needs your support and involement to contiinue its success and growth.

Hope to see you at the AGM.

Matt Neale

RDFCC Chairman.
