Default Round 6 - Kidderminster - 25/26 Aug 2012

Feel free to post chat about Kidderminster National 2012 in here!

Website:
http://www.brca-midwest.co.uk/

VENUE LOCATION
. At the Oldington Leisure Field, Stourport Road, South of Kidderminster on the A451. Entrance to the track is on the West side of the dual-carriageway. Visitors approaching from the North, will have to proceed past the track, to the end of the dual-carriageway (approx. 1/3 mile) and double back towards Kidderminster.

For those with Sat.Nav. the map reference is :- SO 817736 (venue does not have a post code).
The entrance to the venue is directly off a dual-carriageway with fast moving cars. Under no circumstance can any vehicle be parked on the side of this road, or in the gateway entrance. The venue is at the end of a sports’ field which is used as a golf driving range. The driving range ground is strictly out of bounds.

Map:

Have a look here, it's the club's page on the BRCA regionals site.

Hope that helps

unfortunately Lindsay we cant always avoid bank holidays, we do try but we are limited on what dates clubs can do, what dates the 1/8 nationals are and what euro dates are, this year we went out of our way to not clash with the 1/8 nationals or european dates and to give a reasonable gap between events, as a result 2 of the 6 1/10 dates are on bank holidays, i agree with you its not ideal but it wasn't deliberate.

this is the same excuse every year.
Why do we have to finish outdoor racing in August??
We used to race outdoor until October
May be we are getting our priorties wrong for the BRCA 1/10.

there is a couple of things that spring to mind, the weather will be getting poorer and the days are getting shorter. that said do the EOS finals have to be after the nationals?, it is feasible to hold the EOS early september and have the last national at the end of september. that said you must remember that there are 2 BH's in may so we have a 50/50 chance of having to use one of them as a national

Other options are start earlier no Bank Holidays
Clocks go forward in March.
Weather can actualy be better in October than July / August.

i tend to agree, lets be honest trying to plan a meeting around the possible weather in this country is pointless. my preference would be to have a fixed date every year. e.g. the third or second weekend of march/april/may/june/july/august, with the EOS 1 and 3 weeks in sept. the bank holidays are 1 and 4 weekend in may and the end of aug, so we could miss them all, however easter varies and we do not know when the euro's will be, usually august but which weekend. having fixed dates would help clubs who want to apply as they could then plan ahead and apply for the dates well in advance

Or if your life revolves around holiday trade, or your travel is hindered by it.
Ah well, roll on 2012 nationals anyhow

I think it's great that the classes don't clash, it should let more people do both ;-))
