Scale track points allocation - MThomson

Existing

F1 Night Max poss points 60 (30 + 30)
Mini series nights Max poss points 40 (20 + 20)
Mini series finals night Max poss points 30 (30)

Proposed

F1 night Max poss points 40 (20 + 20)
Mini series nights Max poss points 40 (20 + 20)
Mini series finals night Max poss points 40 (40)

Broken down as follows:-
F1 night, both race's points:- 20, 17, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, etc
Mini series points:- Head to head race points allocated as current. Segmented race: 20, 17, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, etc.

Mini Series Finals night points:- 40, 34, 30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, etc

The basic thinking is to equalise the points for each night so that missing any night does not loose you different levels of available points for the championship.

Matt please bear in mind that I can't get there before about 8.40pm so if there's any voting to be done can you please do it after I get there?

Cheers.

Nik.

Finances

One of our principles is that subs cover our running costs and external events gives us capital to invest.

Rent has increased (first time) and coupled with our treasurer finding his back ain't up to lugging all the pound coins, so to maintain that principle we are proposing to increase the weekly fees to £5 (children stay at £1).

Our second principle is to have enough cash reserve to cover finding other premises if needed. We meet that now and will do after the significant investment proposal detailed below.

Investment
Proposing significant investment:
Digital track (potential )
Air con /heating (approx £1200)
Race control standardisation (approx £1000)

I would like to see the Endurance Championship points included in the Overall Club Championship.

Might encourage a few more members to turn up on those nights.

Proposing significant investment:
Air con /heating (approx £1200)
Race control standardisation (approx £1000)
Spoke to Gavin on Sunday.

He is working on Air con/heating issue.

He also said he would look at setting up the Oval Lap Counters/Race Control with the same system as on the Raceway.

Ultimately it would be good to update the Scale Track as well but I think we should wait and see how well the Oval update works.

Cheers.

****.

PS. Has anyone been in contact with Alan? He did suggest that he may be able to do Fridays next year.

****

The proposal to add endurance points to the overall championship positions will be added to the AGM agenda

Alan contacted me on FB and indicated if we remain on Friday his return is unlikely but he would be able to race on Thursday.

Based on facts and figures I am not going to ask for a vote on it as the data says if we go back to Thursday we are likely to see our numbers reduce by 2-3 regulars and maybe gain 1. So we will be continue running the club night on Fridays.

As chair of the club that would be remiss of me to give the members the opportunity to commit hari-kari (I ain't no Cameron!). I will be happy to hear a discussion, esp if someone has a different point of view on the facts or knows of racers who would definitely commit as a regular to a Thursday or Friday that might change the balance. Not interested in anyone's preference esp as mine is to return to a Thursday.
