Ian North Steps Down from SWBAR
End of an EraAs many of you know, Ian has been struggling with health issues for several years, and has been forced to relinquish his role in the administration of the SWBAR.
Ian has been a stalwart of the SW time trialing scene for many years, as a competitor, an organiser, a timekeeper, a clubman, a coach and as the treasurer of the SWBAR competition. As I am sure that you would have wanted me to do, I passed on our thanks and gratitude to Ian today, when I met him at the SAW TT.
Personally I am indebted to Ian for timekeeping at most of the open TT races that I have organised in the past and also for his efficiency in collecting affiliation fees and organising the awards for the SWBAR.
On your behalf, I would like to convey to Ian and his wife Pat all our best wishes for the future.

SWBAR 2017 Affiliation Fees
Urgent - Now DueIf you wish to take part in the SWBAR in 2017 you need to make sure that (a) your club is affiliated to the SWDC for 2017 AND (b) your club TT secretary has paid the £12 SWBAR fee. The SWBAR fee should be sent to Tony Farnell, 3 Lambs Lane, Falmouth, TR11 2JL, cheques payable to A K Farnell or you can make a BACS transfer (my preference - message or email me for bank details). The first race is on Sunday 19th February, where the awards for 2016 will be presented. For winners who cannot make this date, there will be an alternative presentation at the St Austell race on 5th March.
Please note that any races that you do while your club is not affiliated will not count towards your final SWBAR result, so fees are required promptly before 19th February. Please check that your club secretary has done this.
