Chairman’s report

Andrew Naylor (AN) advised that the League’s tax liability situation investigated – an accountant has advised the league that as the majority of the funds are a “pass through” cost there is no need to complete a tax return. The League can continue to manage the levies as now. The accounts will be reviewed at season end.

AN noted a successful season thanking organisers and volunteers.

The disposable number packs and subsets will be donated to local Go-ride clubs.


Secretary’s report

Mary Gill (MG) informed the meeting that after the AGM the website will “disappear” for a period as it is moved.


Treasurer’s report

AN confirmed to the meeting that Sarah Naylor (SN) has stepped down as League treasurer and that Gavin Hardwicke (GH) has stepped in until the AGM.

GH informed the meeting that all event levies are in but that there are still some payments to make to EMCCA.

Event reviews

17 January – 13 – Fossa RT – Chetwynd Barracks: No problems, great event. Great feedback for redesigned compact course. Planks destroyed. Problem with competitor urinating in car park – dealt with by MoD.

24 January – 14 – Beeston CC – Broxtowe Country Park: Event well received, great final event. Good lap lengths. Short section of short track caused no problems. No issues with local residents or Authority.

Prize presentation

All in hand. Steve Hand (SH) has ordered trophies and Kyle Burleigh has organised engraving. 144 tickets sold to date.


Closing date for proposals 27th February.



Spirit of the League discussed and decided.

Karen Lifford (KL) informed the meeting that a cyclo-cross commissaire course is being planned for 6th September.

Mac Lambert (ML) questioned the meeting regarding race splits. After much discussion the meeting agreed to leave as they are.

SH informed the meeting that no V70 had completed sufficient rounds for the trophy to be awarded.

John Holmes (JH) informed the meeting that commissaires’ expenses need to be sent asap on a British Cycling (BC) form, and that the League will need more commissaries.

RC questioned the quality of BC race licences – KL explained that they were not really the quality that BC had expected either.

AN informed the meeting that he intended to step down at the AGM.
