After attending last nite alfie said we had only 22 days of the school left before it gets flattened. Now, Does any one know if we have a club after this happens? I just got the feeling people cant talk about it in person so thats y am posing on here? I would like to think that all the hard work every club member wont be wasted and we do have a venue to race at.

If there is a plan running then fair enough but 9/10 people dont know what is happening.

Well I think it is inevitable that we will end up not racing for a good few weeks as from what I have been told the new school isn't being to forthcoming with info for us. But I maybe wrong maybe I know jack ....
I don't know of any backup plan ?

9/10 people dont turn up to meetings arranged either!

Just be patient ... AGM or EGM should be happenning soon I believe. More meetings and decisions being made in the next few days.

Can we have an AGM soon please, I nominate Wed 7th October, at a pub with a suitably quiet room!

Jimmi .. your signature is sooooo long Im getting wrulds from scrolling past it.

Cool, progress....
If everyone knows the craic (ie if we need to find a new suitable hall) everyone can try the places local to their area to find somewhere new.
I know there are a few places in and around my "hood" that could be worth a call........If needed..
As for a meeting, a noisy pub would be just as good, how about "POWERHOUSE" in newcastle that should keep Peter Ellis and Chris Clarke happy :thumbsup:

What's a AGM ?

What's a AGM ?

AGM means "All Go Mad" everyone goes to a pub and goes mental..........


But really it stands for Annual General Meeting, all club members meet up once a year to argue about things to do with the club, elect de-elect commitee members etc etc.

as it stands we have another meeting with carillion next week, hopefully we´ll know how much they want to charge us for the use of the hall.

As I´ve said many times it doesn´t hurt for people to ask around local venues see whats available.

As for 9/10 people not knowing whats going on, there was a meeting with the council a week ago how many people turned up? There has been countless meeting at the school which have been mentioned to people and no one shows up. If you want to know what´s happening turn up to meetings and speak to people.

If members want it may be an idea to have a thread, with names of venues that have been contacted, where they are and the cost. Then the club can decide if we want to move or stay where we are. But only put those details in the thread instead of filling it with mindless crap.

First things first, i am only asking a question on here because i when i asked the question last nite it was swept under the floor 'everything will be ok'.

Chris p Quote from other thread.

14th September 4PM
Meeting with South Tyneside Council
In South Shields
All club members welcome to attend, the more the merrier.
Lets have a list of attendees, and some notes on points to discuss.

Ill suggest discussing:
Outdoor track - Gypsies green?
Indoor use of Temple Park for regional?
Funding
Getting youngsters involved and some club cars bought.

Yup ur rite pete, there was a meeting with the council, as shown above, monday afternoon 14 sept, i speak for myself i would have been there but i have to go to work on a monday. There for people cant know wots going on if there at work.

Pete all members are so grateful the time and effort you, ian and Chris p put into the running of jarrow club, without you we would have the best club in the NE!:thumbsup:
We aint complaining or trying to cause trouble we just want to know what is happening and are worried our great club is going.

Howay CP. Thats a bit twatfull?

Arranging a meeting at that time of the day isnt going to get many people there is it really?? I work like most of the others. Why not arrange it on a Tuesday night instead of the club then nobody has an excuse?

We all love racing, you know that but the club officials dont speak to anybody. Why not just come clean and let everybody know whats going on. I know people that are ready to start racing again, however they are waiting to hear positive things from the Officials before they buy their cars. If theres no positive news then just say that:confused:

This is only car racing, also why should there be secrets or even people deleting threads asking relevant questions. This kind of rubish makes me wonder why i bother caring?

Come on Comittee, give us some news,good or bad, you are all very much appreciated and we would all love to give you cuddles:blush:

Hope this helps.

I have told the guys at NERCR that the JORCR Committee are discussing with Carillion the possibility of continuing racing at Jarrow School and that this is the best bet anyone has of obtaining a financially viable venue.

And I get this information by reading this forum. Peter has just re-confirmed this above.

And to support the JORCR committee guys (who seem to get the same flack as r/c club committee's have had for decades) I'll add that NERCR members have been in contact with absolutely scores of venues from North Tyneside to Teesside and everywhere in between over the last 3 or more years and Jarrow School is certainly the path most likely to lead to a viable venue.

That is, unless someone has an ace up their sleeve but just doesn't know it. :rolleyes:

Well done committee, good job so far, hope it works out. :thumbsup:

Re meetings with council, its just that it has to be in office hours for the council.

As for time off work though, I just put a holiday in from work to go.

I always try to give plenty notice of meetings, so people can put holidays in at work, Ill try to get more notice up next time.

Why don't you spend your free time phoning sports centres to try and get a new venue, I've spent every day I've been at home for the past 8 weeks trying to find an alternative if we can't get into the new school.

The thread was deleted on my request as it turned into a list of places for someone to phone up, did anybody try contacting any of these places no just list that they were there, (not having a go at anyone in particular)

As for not talking at the club, when was the last time anyone from the committee was there racing???? I know I've only been once since the beginning of the summer holidays, as my family now come first not JORCR as it has been for the past two years.

If anybody would like to join the committee I'm going to try and get a meeting set up in the next couple of weeks to discuss things like this, then all the people twisting can get involved and find out what to do and when, as frankly I have had enough pissing about and not putting my family first.

I think things have got out of hand with this thread, I have not been for a while as i dont finish till 8 every night. We all want the club to go foward and with the discussion verging on the edge of things its time to take a step back and put things in perspective here. We need to find a new venue the more we talk about it the less will happen. what are peoples opinnions on racing on a sunday and were will people travel too. distace from jarrow north/south of the tunnel. please only usefull posts from this point as i dont start till mid day ill look for some where once we have found out how far people will travel

cheers

Come on we all love this hobby let's keep it positive

Ok, personally, I dont think a weekend day is viable. Weekend days are for time to spend with the family for me, or go to a bigger race meeting, such as regional etc.

As for distance to travel, I wouldnt want to travel more than 35 mins on a weeknight from Shields (selfish?).

The council are doing their best to get reasonable rates for us in different places, but it takes time to get answers when asking for discount on 3 - 4 hour bookings.

We have club reps going to a carillion meeting this week, Im hoping for positive vibes to come out of it, so good luck with the meeting lads.

Chris.

It's going to be hard to get a venue and time that works for everyone. I would struggle to go any further north as I already travel 45 mins. I could make it on a Sunday night but think I would have to work on the wife to get out on the afternoon every week lol

turbo_brick
04-10-2009, 07:44 PM
Going off prices that I've had they range from £30 an hour upwards, all of these are without storage for track etc, a large amount also said they wouldn't entertain a 4 hour booking on a weeknight, it would have to be a sunday.

I think that the numbers carillion are going to come back with will be around about the same, the only way the club can pay that sort of money is by increasing the race fees and possibly only racing every other week. To guarantee a decent turn out.

The only other way forward that I can see is if someone knows a teacher or something at a council owned school and try and get them to pull a few strings.

BRAVO
well commited to the sport whats your oppinion of a sunday racing no need to race there squeeze 3 roundas and a final in. On a sunday youll get 4/5 rounds and a final. Can you remember durham on a sunday. chocka and a great day out. If there was some were to race buggies on a sunaday futher north than worksop im sure there would be a big enough turn out. What about longbenton on a sunday they race touring/buggies on a thursday night. Storage is there and plenty of hall and gear to use im sure a deal could be done to sort this out..

I could make longbenton but not sure I could get a pass out every Sunday ? Like chris p says it's kind of family day but if it was say 5 o'clock start then it's not to bad ? Those with kids will only miss a few hours before they are in bed

That makes sense Chappel, Durham used to have really big turn outs for 10th off road back in the mid 90's around 50 - 60 IIRC (Bill may remember better). I think 10th off road is just as big now as it was then so that proves that Sunday racing works............
And if Peter says more places are willing to do 4hr bookings on a Sunday it may be a possibilty.. It would just mean a turn out of 20 - 25 to guarantee the hall hire would be met.
The Summer racing for the 8th scale has finished now so a good few of us will be racing 10th again for the winter. Most are just watching to see what is happening here before investing..

What about Sunday mornings say 8 till 12 ? This way the wifes will be happy as you can still have the day out and the kids can make it also ! Seems the most logical ?

It's not our choice, it's whatever times are available. You have to bear in mind these places are usually ran by volunteers or part time staff, if they have to pay extra for someone to get out of bed at 7.30 to open a hall, guess who will have to pay for it.

I know it's all pending on what we can get but I was just suggesting this could be the best time to fit with all. Not sure if many agree with the morning thing ?
But like you said we will have to take what we can get

We went to check out a possible new venue tonight at Seaham and first impressions are pretty good.
The hall is only slightly shorter than Jarrow with extra pitting available in another room just off the hall, decent size car park with cctv and there's a police station on the opposite side of the road. There's storage available in a garage on the side of the building. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

We'll have to see what happens but it looked good to me!:D

There used to be a toy car club at that same hall many years ago, early 90's IIRC i used to go with my Tamya Hotshot...
It's in a decent part of Seaham too not rough....

There is no other venue now. The other, more favoured one cancelled on us the other night... And as for the third one its too small a venue... I wouldn't worry though as we'll probs be able to get this one on a sun night or day depending upon preference...
