J.E James Cycles Training Events

Hello all, I hope that nobody minds me posting this.
I am James from J.E James Cycles in Rotherham and I have been speaking with a club member in store today who has informed me that some of you my be interested in some support from ourselves in the way of events such as, maintenance courses, Garmin information/how-to sessions etc.
Would anyone be interested in any of the following courses?
(free of charge of course)
Any other ideas would be welcomed- we want to support our local club.
P.S The next drop of Wheelers team kit is due at the end of February, an event around then would tie in nicely.
Thanks

  • Wheelers basic bike fitting, nutrition and training advice session
  • Wheelers basic maintenance session
  • Wheelers Zwift & Turbo trainer information session
  • Wheelers Garmin Information session (how to use)

RWCC 2018 subscriptions

Following discussion at the Wheelers’ AGM on 30 January 2018,  members decided to maintain club subscriptions at £15 for full members and £7:50 for junior and 2nd claim members.

Subscriptions are now due and I would be grateful if members could arrange to pay as soon as possible.  Payment should  be made to me by cash or cheque (payable to Rotherham Wheelers Cycling Club) at any club meeting, club ride or at my home address.  Alternatively, members may pay by electronic transfer to the club account, details of which are unchanged and available from me on request.

Kind Regards

Dave Buxton

Treasurer and Membership Secretary

RWCC – payment of subscriptions 2018

Being the start of the new year, club subscriptions are now due for payment. However, as the subscription rate has to be formally agreed at the AGM (which isn’t until Tues 30:1:18) and in order to keep admin to a minimum, I will not be accepting subscriptions before the AGM.
 
As in previous years, as well as cash or cheque, it will be possible to pay subscriptions electronically, but members are asked not to do so until after the AGM.
Many thanks
Dave Buxton

RWCC – 2017 Christmas Event and Annual Presentation Evening

This year’s Wheelers Christmas event / Annual Presentation Evening will be held THIS FRIDAY (8 December 2017) at the Three Horseshoes, Bawtry Road, Wickersley starting at 7:00pm for 7:30pm.  The event will be held in the first floor function room, access to which is via a staircase just inside and to the left of the main entrance.  I suggest that we meet in the bar downstairs before making our way upstairs for our meal at around 7:30pm.

It has been suggested that we run a raffle during the course of the evening, the proceeds to be donated to MIND and the NSPCC.  JE James Ltd have donated a raffle prize and several members have already pledged prizes.  Whilst donation of raffle prizes is entirely voluntary and will be anonymous, I’ve written to all members attending the function to invite you, if you wish to do so to donate a raffle prize and help to raise money for these worthy charities.

I look forward to seeing you all on the night.

2017 Christmas Event and Presentation Evening

This year’s Rotherham Wheelers Christmas Event and Presentation Evening at the Three Horseshoes, Wickersley is now just 5 weeks away and we are busy finalising arrangements to make it an enjoyable and memorable evening.
I have emailed all members attending a copy of the menu, so please check your in trays.  To keep things simple, I propose that we all eat off the 3 course menu which provides a choice of 3 x starters, 6 x mains (including a vegetarian option) and 3 x desserts.
In order that I can confirm our order, I would be grateful if you could notify me of your menu selections and any special dietary needs by no later than Saturday 25 November.
You will see that the cost of the 3 course menu is £13:49 per head with a £1:50 supplement for the rump steak option.  As the ticket price for the event was set at £15:00 per head, I propose that any cash remaining will be spent on pigs in blankets and stuffing balls to accompany our main courses.
If you have not yet paid the balance of ticket price, I would appreciate it if you could do so by no later than Saturday 25 November.  Payment may be made by cash or cheque (payable to Rotherham Wheelers Cycling Club), to me in person or to my home address.  If you prefer, payment may be made by electronic transfer to the club account (details available on request).  If you pay electronically, please drop me an email to confirm that you have done so.

2017 John Atkinson Trophy

You should already be aware that the 2017 Rotherham Wheelers Presentation Evening and Christmas Social will be held on Friday 8 December 2017 at the Three Horseshoes Public House, Wickersley.

Amongst the prizes to be awarded that evening is the John Atkinson Trophy which was commissioned by the club in memory of a much loved and respected member who sadly passed away in tragic circumstances in 2016.

The trophy is awarded annually on the basis of a ballot of members to the member who is ‘considered to have done the most for the club during the previous year’.  

Depicting a road cycle, this unique trophy was crafted in Sterling silver by Steve Viney, and it is hoped that members will see this as both a lasting memorial to John and a means of recognising the efforts of the member who is considered to have done most on behalf of the club”.  I have attached a photograph of the trophy for your information.

Last year’s worthy recipient was Doug Manning.

This year’s ballot will be held at the next club General Meeting which commences at 19:00 Monday 13 November 2017 at the Three Horseshoes public house, Wickersley.

It is hoped that the trophy will be presented by a member of John’s family at this year’s annual presentation evening.

For the award to have the status which it deserves it is important that ALL members consider making a nomination and that as many members as possible participate in the ballot of members. 

The following methodology will apply:

 

a)  Members will be permitted to nominate only one person each, who MUST be either a life, honorary, full, junior or 2nd claim member of Rotherham Wheelers Cycling Club.

b)  Nominations may be made at any time from the date of this notice.

c)  Nominations should be made either in person or by email to the club treasurer by 24:00 Saturday 11 November 2017.

d)  On Sunday […]
