2017 Gunning 2 Day


Hello Vets,

Following the disappointment of the postponement of the Gunning 2 Day Event back in May, we are pleased to be able to announce that the event has been rescheduled for October.

I encourage all members to sign up and make this a great event.

Dougal Torrance

Gunning 2 Day Event

Your chance to race 154km over two days! (or 104km for E, F, G, Tandem) and Lunch – all for a measly $35.

The club’s signature event, the Gunning two day race, is on over the weekend of the 14/15 October. Saturday starts at 10:00 am with a 4km uphill Prologue just to make it interesting!

For those that groaned at an uphill prologue, we’ve decided to make it interesting by throwing in bonus time on Stage 1! Again, for stage 2, time bonuses will be on offer so a good strategy will be key!

Marshals

Bill Frost has kindly volunteered to be the Race referee for the two days. In order to run the event, he requires the assistance of Marshals, Escort Drivers and General Helpers to assist.

Payment of $30 per day is available to offset petrol costs and other expenses.

If you are willing to help, please contact Bill at: billfrost@bigpond.com

Portaloo

A Portaloo has been booked. We are looking for a volunteer to help with towing duties. If someone is staying in Gunning on Saturday evening and would be able to tow it back to their accommodation overnight, that would save having to tow it back to Canberra.

Please contact Ian McVay imcvay@grapevine.com.au Ph 62317523 if you can assist.

Requirements

The cost will be $35 for the race and you must be a current member of the club within the AVCC. Please note that we do not have day licences available.

Riders will need to bring their helmet to the registration desk for inspection. Please note that it is an AVCC requirement that all riders must wear a helmet which meets Australian Standards.

Riders must have started the previous stage to compete the next stage. (i.e. if you don’t ride Saturday then you cannot start on Sunday)
