Hi Roy

Yes it did thanks, I've pasted the minutes below.

Cheers Andy

AGM Agenda 2014 - Minutes of Meeting

Those present:
Andy Carless, Steve Leake, Scott Adderson, Fred Martin, Ken Gospel, Neal Vater, Peter Vater, Matt Book, Martin Woodcock, Alan Leighton, Richard Bilissett

Apologies received from:
John Veal

Acceptance of last year’s minutes:
Everyone agreed, proposed by Richard Blissett, seconded by Andy Carless

Chairman’s Report
Alan noted that at all the BRCA PRO events he had attended during the year, it was the bikes that always generated the most interest.

Promotion of the bikes had been good, with the Off Road bike show being particularly popular. This had led to enquiries for purchasing bikes from Anderson and Formby Models

Unfortunately at the Triumph Live Event the retailer that had been booked to attend couldn’t, this may well have generated further bike sales. People definitely wanted them.

He noted that not many sections including ourselves had taken up the BRCA offer of advertising for events. Richard noted that usually it cost more than the BRCA had offered, so sometimes wasn’t beneficial to do so. Alan also said that he had told other BRCA committee members that clubs might not thank us for getting too many of the public to attend a meeting where they couldn’t cope with large unanticipated numbers.

Secretary’s Report
Richard said that it had been a pretty good year, with only a few problems in organising the Race Calendar. In particular the demise of Skipton and the Halifax availability, whereby we had to cancel that meeting and move it to Southend. He added that the Skipton club had been very friendly and accommodating to us. Southend had been ultimately chosen as a club that actively supported and promoted bikes.

He had been concerned about the amount of money we had been collecting and would it be sufficient for the clubs who's tracks we had hired. But the clubs had been more than happy with this, commenting on how easy we were to work with, being low maintenance compared to other sections!

Richard had also got some track banners done to advertise us more.

Plus a speed radar detector, as people were always asking ‘how fast do they go mate’.

Treasurers Report
Unfortunately due to work commitments John couldn’t attend, but supplied all the figures up to date.

Accounts proposed by Richard Blissett and seconded by Andy Carless

I will include a copy of them when uploading these Minutes.

PRO/Race Director
Andy passed around a report on the race meetings that he had done for Alan (will upload with this report)

He noted that the web site was up to date with all the race meetings for this year.

He mentioned that there had been issues with the race computer and software, and he felt that for 2015 we should invest in both. More on this later.


Health and Safety
Richard noted not really any issues here.

Risk assessments now needed to be taken for meetings and we had to have a list of local hospitals etc, we had those anyway.

JJ mentioned the nitro fuel situation, Alan thought that this cost and checking would likely end up with the Supplier of the fuel and not our problem as such.


Scrutineer's Report
Scott said there had been no real issues, stock and brushless motors had proven to be pretty much on par with each other.

Plus the Moto2 and Moto3 bikes were closer in competition that had been thought, some parts of the track suited one rather than the other.


Election of 2015 Officials
Chairman:
Alan Leighton - Proposed by Richard Blissett, seconded by Neal Vater

Secretary:
Andy Carless - Proposed by Fred Martin, seconded by Scott Adderson

Treasurer:
John Veal - Proposed by Andy Carless, seconded by Ken Gospel

Race Director:
Fred Martin - Proposed by Richard Blissett, seconded by Neal Vater

PRO/Race Director:
Scott Adderson - Proposed by Andy Carless, seconded by Steve Leake

Health and Safety:
Richard Blissett - Proposed by Alan Leighton, seconded by Martin Woodcock

Scrutineer:
Scott Adderson - Proposed by Andy Carless, seconded by Matt Book

Proposals
Stock minimum weight of 1600g or a second class - Proposed by Gary Sims, seconded by Matt Book

Leave Stock class as 2014 - Proposed by Steve Leake, seconded by Graham Clarke

Two qualifying rounds and three finals, two or three finals to count - Proposed by Richard Blissett, seconded by Dave Tims
Above amended by Richard to be the ‘fastest two finals to count’

Go back to FTD Qualifying - Proposed by Fred Martin, seconded by Matt Book


Points 1 and 2 it was agreed should be discussed together as you couldn’t really vote on one or the other. Points were putting forward for each, some saying that minimum weight limit was kind of irrelevant as bikes don’t handle very well at all when going below certain weight. It had been shown that there wasn’t really any huge difference between Moto3 and Moto2 bikes, it was generally down to the drivers, each type had their own benefits on certain parts of the track. It was noted that Chris Douglas had returned to one round with an ageing KP bike running PMT tyres, and had qualified 4th in the A final. This showed the equipment wasn’t necessarily the defining factor. The class had been very close and popular.

Vote taken on point 1, overall majority not to introduce minimum weight limit or second class.

Vote taken on point 2, overall majority to leave the stock class as is.

As above it was agreed to discuss Points 3 and 4 together as they are closely related. Views were put for both types of qualifying methods, Fred was keen to return to FTD. It was noted that how this year had been quite relaxed qualifying due to marshals not being shouted at due to urgency required. Some said this resulted in a lack of racing, hence Richard’s proposal to tip the balance in more finals racing and less qualifying. A discussion was held on if we voted in the three finals, how many were to count. It was agreed the two fastest should count.

Vote taken on point 3 - 6 votes for and 3 against - change to two qualifying heats and three finals, with two fastest to count.

Vote taken on point 4 - 3 votes for and 5 against - continue with three fastest lap qualifying.


Any other business
Martin Woodcock noted a couple of things that were incorrect/inconsistent in our rules.
These were that it stated nitro qualifying and finals should take place before electric. It was agreed that this should be changed to Race Directors Discretion as it depended on circuits and their local running conditions. Scott seconded this.

Start flag to be used for nitro bike finals, bikes to be 4 metres apart. It was agreed this wasn’t always practical and the 4 metres spacing rule should be removed. Steve seconded this.

As mentioned above Andy brought up the subject of the laptop and race software starting to be a problem at meetings. A discussion was held and it was agreed that the officials above would look into the costs and source the necessary equipment and software to run race meetings for 2015. This would likely to be the RCTiming lap counting software as it was familiar to quite a few people within the bike section.

A discussion on the number of rounds for next year was held and it was proposed to have the same as this year, eg 6 rounds and a GP Race.
Proposed by Alan Leighton, seconded by Scott Adderson

Alan asked if we were happy to spend approximately £300 for the Bike Shows. It was agreed we we were happy to do this.

Meeting ends 12.40
