Round 2, Nowra - Rescheduled to 4 August

Update: Tuesday 28 May, 9.30am

Dear Singletrackers
 
Many thanks for your understanding over our decision to postpone Sunday's SRAM Singletrack Mind Series race at Coondoo Road, Nowra, and your patience while we've been working hard to find a suitable date for its reschedule.
 
We'd like to say a massive thank you to our host club, SCUM. While it was hugely disappointing for us to find ourselves in Nowra, ready for all systems go, but rain still falling, it was also a big blow for the club. A small band of people have been working hard on the trails including the building of a cool new feature which was to be unveiled for the race. The clubbies have promised that this will be kept back from the world until the new date ... which is pretty exciting! However, every cloud has a silver lining for the SCUM crew and they have told us that the delay in holding the race will simply give them time to make the Coondoo Road trails even better - and we are planning to help them in a working bee during July which we'll advertise to recruit some willing helpers in due course.
 
So, drumroll please ... the new date for Round 2 of the SRAM Singletrack Mind Series is Sunday 4 August, at Coondoo Road, Nowra (which will of course mean it happens after Round 3 at Awaba).
 
What to do now? If you're able to attend, then you don't need to do anything. All current entries will be transfered to the new date, any merchandise you have ordered will be available at the event, and you'll hear more from us in the days before the event. If your MTBA membership happens to expire between now and then, please renew it (the entry system does a check with MTBA on expired memberships).
 
If you or some of your team members are unable to attend, we are offering three options:
  • Substitute rider or riders in your team, or transfer your entry to another rider/team - this transfer must be completed by the new date's closing date (midnight on 31 July 2013) and sort out the financials between you. Please see our website for info on how to change your entry.
  • Notify us within 48 hrs of the new event date being posted in the Singletrack Mind Series Latest News section that you are unable to attend, and the reason why, and we will refund 50% of your entry fee. If you have purchased any merchandise and wish for that to be refunded, we are happy to do so. If you'd still like this merchandise, we can arrange to mail it to you. To arrange this, you mustThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 10am on Thursday 30 May.
  • Given we're only one round down in the 2013 SRAM Singletrack Mind Series, we've decided to flex the rules of our refund policy a little. We're offering to transfer your entry to a future round of the 2013 Series. Again, you must request this within 48 hrs of the new event being posted in the Singletrack Mind Series Latest News section. Merchandise will be transferred for pick up at the future round (2013 Series only) that you choose to attend. To arrange this, you mustThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 10am on Thursday 30 May.
If you have any questions about anything above, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
 
We have re-opened entries to the event so if you know of anyone who is keen to race at Coondoo Road but couldn't make last weekend, please let them know the news!
 
Thanks again for your support of our decision to postpone Round 2 and we look forward to seeing you all in Nowra in August, if not before!
 
Cheers
