News Letters


Hi everyone,

Welcome to a sort of wintery type newsletter. First things first the SMMA has organised Go-Karting at Raceland at Longniddry in East Lothian on the 5th of December. Start time is 6pm for a 6.30pm start. The total cost for this including food will be £46 but due to money donated to the SMMA for the Karting and some subsidy from the SMMA the cost to marshals will only be £15 including food. Places are limited so it’s first come first served with marshals obviously getting first dibs. The cut off date for marshals to register with me will be the 1st of December, after that I will take people from the reserves list and on the night it will be a free for all if there are any places left so bring your friends or at least put there name on the reserves list. Anyone who is not a marshal will have to pay the full price as the discount is only for us marshals.

Next item. There will be a Racesafe Approved training day held at East Fortune on the 27th of Feb 2010. More details will be sent out at a later date but I would really appreciate a good turn out as this training day will be run by the SMMA on behalf of Racesafe and will, at the time of writing this letter, cover everyone for both Racesafe and ACU events. For those of you wishing to attend either Racesafe(bsb) or ACU(Moto Gp and WSB) you will have to register with both organisations to get an invite to the events, if in doubt then just get in touch with me.

This is the time of the year when we need to promote ourselves to the wider biking community in order to get new members in each year. With this in mind I have ordered 5,000 fliers which I will post or hand to anyone who thinks that they can find a good use for them. Also if you have any ideas to promote the SMMA then please get in touch and let us know what help you need to get your idea up and working. A couple of ideas are already on the cards and will take place when they are planned…

The new website is up and running. What it really needs is content and some articles to read. Put pen to paper or better still finger to key and send something to the webmaster for the website. Not so much about riders etc but about marshalling etc…

I have included a newsletter from the Melville Club who have paid for the postage costs of this letter. On the matter of Melville Club they have asked me to see if anyone wants to help out at two upcoming MotoCross events at Lochouses in East Lothian on the 17th Jan and the 21st Feb. they are looking at some expenses money and your lunch. If you fancy it let me know asap and I will let the MotoCross section know. Also a little request from D. Paton, the Melville Club are missing a Kenwood radio and asked me to ask you all to have a look in your bags etc to see if it’s hiding in a kit bag or jacket. They have already been round the Doctors and Paramedics and think it may have been left in a bag at some point.
