AMSC Autosolo Challenge 2019 - Round 3

Please note that there was a minor error in the class result overview table that was published yesterday.  David Curtis was missing from Class B, he came 7th in class - sorry David!

Thanks to the organisers, marshals and of course competitors today, a well run smooth event.  Close competition all the way through in most classes with the FTD being decided by just a few seconds (1 pylon's worth?).

Event results are linked below:

South Suffolk Classic - 12th May 2019

The 11th South Suffolk Classic run is taking place on Sunday 12th May.  Full details of the event, including route details, regulations, entry forms and online entry are available from the event website www.southsuffolkclassic.co.uk.  

It’s just 4 weeks away and things have developed nicely here is an update please spread the word.

Woodbridge Tide MillWoodbridge Riverside Trust will be opening their Longshed boat workshop adjacent to the start extra early on the morning so you can view the replica long boat, Sae Wylfing and have a look round whilst waiting for the start. Complimentary tea or coffee will be available at the start from the Coffeelink, outlet pastries and bacon butties will also be available.

Bentwaters Park is up and running – Bill Kemball has roped in this wife and daughter for the day to ensure the museum exhibits and tour is viewed at their very best – there is also the chance of one of the stationary engines being up in ‘steam’.  Bentwaters, besides having a WW2 history, remained as a USAF base until relatively recently and was a prominent Cold War Nuclear resource.

Bentwaters Park logoUpon release by the MoD it was purchased by Bill Kemball and has developed into several areas including agriculture, energy production, storage and other industrial uses. Part of our visit will be a guided coach tour around the various facilities which will last about an hour. Nick and I have had the tour and it is completely fascinating.

The Kemball family are also very keen on equipment and history and there are three 'museums' contained in some of the original base buildings.  Bill Kemball has a collection of Agricultural machinery pre-1960 which is of national if not international significance, not normally open to the public. The content is jaw-dropping.

Mrs Kemball has a unique collection of ladies dresses from each decade from the 1900's to the 1960's including many spectacular bridal gowns, which impressed me, even as a devout male who likes things made of metal!

They are also working on a new exhibition of WW2 life and another relating to the Holocaust.

You will gather that we thought it sensible to shorten the road mileage this year in order that you get a better chance to take in everything Bentwaters and the Kemball family have to show you. This will be the best SSC yet.

A portion of your entry fee is being donated to two local charities East Anglian Air Ambulance and Wantisden Church Roof. The good news is that Wantisden Church now has the funds for the new roof work so Bentwaters Park have changed their nominated charity to Ipswich Hospital Blossom Appeal (Breast Cancer).

Stanta Christmas Targa Rally

Thank you to everyone out today on the Stanta Christmas Targa Rally. Thanks to all the Marshals, organisers and competitors. Seeing all the smiles just makes it worth the hundreds of hours spent to organise. Well done to Mark Peterson and Jim Bowie on winning the event

 

AMSC Officials Training Day

Officials Training Session - Saturday 24th November

Horringer Community Centre, Horringer, Bury St Edmunds IP29 5RU

10.30am for 11.00am Start, Finishing at 3.00pm with the option to stay for chat at end.

AMSC Committee members have been very impressed by the Training Sessions provided at MSA Seminars. These sessions have been largely aimed at bigger events such as stage rallies and Nat B and we thought there was real scope to help those organising a Club event.

With great support from Alan Page, Head of Training at MSA, Colnbrook, we have constructed a one-day Training Seminar directed towards running any Club event for all people regarded as Event Officials.

That means:

Clerk of Course, Event Secretary, Chief Marshal, Scrutineer, Timekeeper, Results Team, Club Steward, Entries Sec, Safety Officer and Event Treasurer

And anyone else having a role in the management of an event before, during or after it.

The day is designed for EVERYONE who is an EVENT OFFICIAL currently or who would like to get in to event management in the future.

Emphasis will be put on the new pressures facing the Organising Team, particularly regarding Safety and Incident Management, Regulation Changes, Public Perception etc. It will not be a Lecture. We hope for a lot of interaction and, since the group will be coming from local clubs, most people will know each other. We hope for around 40 attendees from ‘old hands’ to total newcomers. We would like each AMSC club to send several members.

Doors open at 1030 for coffee etc., with the first session beginning at 1100. There will be a buffet lunch provided, followed by a couple of afternoon sessions, finishing formally at 1530 with plenty of time to chat afterwards. Tea and coffee will be available all day. The whole day will be free to the individual, the MSA providing considerable financial assistance.

It will be led by Alan Page who is coming personally to help deliver the sessions.

We hope this will be a worthwhile day, helping to ensure our sport thrives into the future.

Please book the day in your diary and speak to your Comp Sec about representing your Club.
