If we can arrange at least an additional $500 sponsorship for 2013 we are considering having a criterium around Blackball township on Sunday morning following the race. We will be asking you at the start line if this were to happen would you consider staying overnight. Perhaps you could give this some thought please.

A big thank- you to all who took part in or assisted with our cyle races last Saturday.

And congratulations too to all our prize winners.

Just wondering if you might give us a little feed-back.

I signalled in our web-page text that we would be asking, if we were to guarantee at least $500 in prize money would people stay for a criterium Sunday morning. Well I have to put my hand up and say I just forgot.

If you rode either the A (100k) or B (75k)grade would you mind contacting me on the address below with a yea or a nay.

A question for everyone who took part is ---  if we were to add five dollars on to the entry fee and provide a barbeque at the conclusion of the races would that be helpful?

Any suggestions on how we might get the numbers competing to increase would be especiialy welcome.
