EVENTS CALENDAR 2021

Updated 10th May 2021.

As we head towards the end of the Coronavirus restrictions on meeting our friends for social events, the Committee has been considering the issue of permits for NACC runs. Section leaders are invited to apply for permits for events to take place after July 1st. Our Events Secretary, Bob Jeffcoat, has his spreadsheet poised and we look forward to filling in a few lines after waiting for so long to see a trail of two-stroke smoke on the breeze. This date builds in a margin of safety following the June 21st planned date for the lifting of the National restrictions. Bob’s contact details are at the bottom of this page.

We must stress that the permits for events are provisional and subject to not only cancellation but possibly local restrictions which may be in force after the June 21st date for ending the lockdown. Anyone planning to attend an event is advised to keep in touch with the organiser to ensure that it’s still going ahead and to give them an idea of how many riders to expect for catering and for any social distancing requirements. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to meet and I’m sure that this news will be welcomed by everyone.

Nick Devonport (Chairman)

If You Would Like to Organise an Event in 2021-

If you want to organise a Club-permit event and wish information to appear in Buzzing magazine in time, the Events Secretary must be informed in writing as early as possible.

Organisers should obtain a permit (downloadable from the link at the bottom of this page) which should be sent to the Events Secretary for him to issue signing on sheets so that the Club’s public liability insurance covers the event. Events organised at short notice (minimum 28 days), apply by e-mail to the Events Secretary Bob Jeffcoat at nippybob@talktalk.net or in writing to 72 Glenthorne Drive, Cheslyn Hay, Walsall, WS6 7DD, to ensure issue of a permit.

We will post short-notice events on this website’s Club Calendar above, but there’s no guarantee short-notice events can be publicised in Buzzing magazine due to printing schedules, but we will do our best.

  • Signing-on sheets must be returned by organisers within 14 days of holding the event, this is a requirement of our Public Liability Insurance cover.
  • The rule for riding on NACC events is, NO membership card – NO ride, unless day membership is purchased. You would then be covered by the NACC PLI insurance.
  • Those who cannot produce a valid card have to pay the day membership fee.
  • All participants must personally sign the official sign-on sheet issued by the Events Secretary.
  • NACC events require the organiser to obtain a permit for public liability insurance purposes.

The NACC does not allow “joint events” with other clubs. Joint events are those advertised on websites or in publications as being run by other clubs which have the same date, venue, organiser, contact details etc. as an event for which an NACC event permit has been issued. Members of other clubs are welcome at NACC events subject to payment of day membership.
