Sign-in:
Please arrive early to your first session of the season, whenever that may occur, so that we can sign you in. There will be a two part sign-in for the first session, one the typical update of last season data and then please add your email to the email list on the laptop. We will use it to help notify participants of race news; especially weather cancellations.

Numbers:
Please remember to pick-up your season long race numbers: one bike frame number and one hip number. Yes, this year we wish you to wear the number on the hip. Don't forget to bring 6 safety pins with you. Early racers will be giving numbers that start at 400 and work down, late racers start at 1 and work up. Those promoted from early to late will be issued new numbers at time of promotion.

Parking:
As per past years please park in the lots on Eastgate and do not ride, walk, or park in either TD Bank or RIM parking lots

Fees:
< 23: $5 per session or join the club and pay $50 for the season if you have your race licence or citizen's permit
23+: $10 per session or join the club and pay $125 for the season if you have your race licence or citizen's permit

You do NOT need to race in Midweek kit to be a Midweek member. While we'd like you to do so, it is NOT required. Nor will we won't be sad if you don't. Same goes for the volunteer hours. But please remember the fact of life -- your racing occurs only because someone has given up of their time to enable it to happen. So, when ever you can help please do so.

Midweek would like to thank all who came out to coach and mentor the Learn-to-Race program last night. Please don't forget to encourage people to take the program. The formal 9 week program starts May 3 but we use the April Monday's to get a head start on basic racing skills. Program cost is free with Midweek membership (by far the cheapest way to take it).

Please don't forget the Kid's and Youth program returns to Centennial Park on Thursday May 6, meeting at the model airplane circle on the west side of the park. This is basic riding,mountain bike and 'cross skills. Goal build cycling and personal confidence. Any type of bikes, helmets mandatory. Ages 9 to 12. Parents encouraged to participate too.

New for Midweek Club Members only
Saturday morning races: once per month Midweek Club members will be invited to spend Saturday morning racing. It will be a mix of races: individual sprints, team sprints, miss and outs, handicaps, etc. Basically a fun morning of racing.

See you soon!

Craig Fagan, Midweek c.c.
