If You Would Like to Organise an Event in 2023

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.
