Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the previous month and a bit, the Raceway has now completed it move to our new venue at Cinderford Miners Hall.

We have a few “housekeeping” items that I need to make you all aware of in advance of our first actual race meeting there on Tuesday 15th March. Doors will be open from 18:00 at the latest. Please park sensibly in the car park as other groups are around at that time.

– Tables and Chairs – We are bringing chairs from the old venue that can be used in the new venue. Any tables and chairs currently in the Miners Hall, are NOT to be used by us. You will need to provide a table, and you should ensure that the feet of which are extremely well protected so as not to damage the Miners Hall flooring. We recommend the following for table feet ends. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B095CPPL3C/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_MZFQR01KY6Q940D8QM8Y

– Power – We will have power, but we do need to “daisy chain” the electrics so that you can have it at your pit table. With that, we will be enforcing a 1C charge rule for lipo charging. IE. 5600mah pack = 5.6amp max charge. This is to protect the wiring at the hall. It may go back up in future.

– Track setup and dismantling – Obviously, this is something we’ve haven’t had to do for a very long time. The carpet is stored under the staging area, and the track barriers are downstairs in our storage room. All hands on deck for putting out and picking up at the end of the night! Current track barriers should be placed to the left in the storeroom for ease of laying out the layouts. If in doubt, ask a committee member. There is a broom for sweeping the hall at the end of the night, and this needs to be done in line with the wood grain (ask me for directions on it).

We are hoping to run a “mini” meeting on the 15th, but it will very much be us finding out feet and learning the layup of the new venue, so expect some running, but not a full on race meeting.

I can’t stress enough how important it is that we protect the Miners hall flooring. As with our carpet being our biggest club asset, the flooring is to the Miners hall. ANY damage could have severe consequences for our club.

See you all on the 15th!

Mark – Chairman
