Qualifying for Feature Races

Based on feedback and conversations with a variety of members over the last few months the committee wishes to clarify the current criteria for qualifying for our club feature races.

We currently run 4 Feature Races a year: Fingal (Feb/Mar);  Quamby (Apr/May); Longford to Campbell Town (Sep/Oct); and the Blackwood Creek 70 (Nov/Dec).

These events are aimed at creating interest, variety and hopefully the opportunity for success in our racing season for our members. We value the club feel we have, and recognise that the volunteers and the  riders who turn up regularly make the club what it is. It is with this fact in mind that we aim to ensure that the riders who turn up week in week out are not disadvantaged by virtue of having a more accurate handicapping profile.

As a result it is a requirement that riders have made a minimum of 5 commitments (e.g. duty, volunteering or racing)  to the club in the 12 months prior to each feature race, these must include a min. of 3 normal club races. NB: If a rider has not raced regularly enough for the handicappers to form an accurate assessment of their form, in the month or two leading up to the feature race,  it is likely that the said rider may receive a grade higher than they were expecting.

Welcome to the “new” NVCC Website

Welcome to the new NVCC Website that we are trialing.

While Facebook will still be the spot for quick updates and online social interaction, this site will be for longer term  information for members and articles. It is hoped that with this new format that we will have more people being able to keep the website up-to-date  and that there will be more opportunity for members to interact through comments on articles.

No doubt it will also have some limitations compared to the traditional structure but we are hoping that the ease to update and the ability to interact may outweigh those limitations.

Scroll down to see other posts and have a look around.

We will see how we go.
