Anyone know if there any arrival time restrictions for camping on the Saturday night? Was wondering if we could arrive at any time or just between certain hours. Thanks

Darley Moor is gated from memory. Hence depends on if these are unlocked on Saturday or other event taking place then? No doubt others can confirm?

There is nothing listed on their website for the Saturday (but they don't list us for the Sunday and Monday either so no idea if there is actually anything going on).
I would say don't arrive until after 5pm unless we can get confirmation that we are allowed in before then.
Last year I got there at 5ish and found a chap who opened the gate for us. 
No problem with arriving fairly late... We'll be having the usual wild party/orgy in the pits until at least 9pm... Wink

I will let them know that folks will arrive from 5pm onwards for camping on the sat, to ensure the gates are opened by then.

Hi All,
Please note that we'll be reserving the parking area nearest to the track and toilet block at Darley Moor for our handcyclists as we did last year.
Many thanks.

Unfortunately owing to illness the electronic timing system will not be available at Darley Moor this weekend.

We shall continue with the race programme as advertised but all timing will now be done manually with video backup. There will inevitably be a delay in publishing the results which are likely to come out a few days after the event rather than the usual few hours.

There is a small possibility that there will be no results at all for some riders, particularly if we are unable to identify your race number easily.  You can help to minimise this risk by making sure you have large, clear numbers (ideally A5-sized) on the front and both sides of your machine. If you haven't yet been allocated a race number then please bring blank number boards and something to mark them with you to Darley Moor.

If you decide you would rather not race than risk having no results then please contact the Treasurer (treasurer@bhpc.org.uk) as soon as possible to arrange a refund of your registration/camping.

It looks like the club first aid kit may also not make it to Darley (its packed up with the timing kit). I have a smallish first aid kit I can bring with me, but to be on the safe side if anyone else attending happens to have one, could you please bring it with you. Hopefully it won't be needed, but if it is BHPC will be able to reimburse for any bits from it that need to be used.

Please email me compsec@bhpc.org.uk to let me know if you are able to bring one with you.

If we need people to count laps for others whilst they are on the track, would be worth also bringing a pen. I have a few, but not enough to furnish the 50 odd riders we have racing over the weekend.



Thanks

Chris
