now folks this is the time to get stuff changed..if you miss this boat then, then don't start waffling on about drivel on the forums in the middle of the next season blaming the Commission for everything.
I would suggest maybe an open sensible discussion on here about what you think needs to be added , removed or improved.
Nonsense will be removed !

Id like to see some way of democratically deciding NPS matters. Would it be possible for the XC contingent to gather around at the AGM and vote on the number of races, venues and other matters? I also think it is important that any potential NPS host should be present. I think the workload could be shared, one person take responsibility for organising race numbers etc. I don't know how this would be put forward as a motion.

Thats not an offroad commission issue.

Motions should be in the nature of (eg)standardising the length of races
Rules for the nationals ( remember the nonsense leading up to this years )

well i think that there should be trophies at all nps events not fucxing cash prizes

Byrner
08-24-2011, 07:44 PM
Now I have reservations about that one..
I propose Trophies for everybody down to top 5 each category provided over 20 riders in Category.
Plus cash prizes for top 3 in Senior 1. I think there should be a distinction made they are the Elite.

I propose an Offroad Commission Development Team for the NPS selected and managed by myself.

"any club wishing to host an NPS to be vetted for suitability, so as not to disappoint any riders with cancellation of events"
"that there be a relatively even number of NPS events countrywide" (way too many up north this year IMO).
"not to be charged an extra fee for sign up on the day of an event, and for a set fee per race"
"Bike insurance scheme to be reintroduced"
"colour coded numbers in the nationals, and all riders to have numbers on back and front"(so you know when you are closing in on someone what category they are in).

Those are excellent Nipples.

- clear promotion and relegation system for 2012 NPS (S2 to S1 etc.)
- clear rules regarding participation in National events
- holders of non IRL licence allowed to partake in National events but not eligible for medals, UCI points and not gridded.
- hire an NPS co-coordinator whose role would be to ensure all NPS are run to equal (high) standard
- create an NPS logo and promotion campaign


I'm sure I'll come up with more later..

In fairness I think the only time you paid extra was if you didn't register until the day. You could pay on the day with no extra fee.

the leinster league was rubbish compared to the ulster league , i am not knocking the events or organisation but only racing 795 s race was not also an nps while the ulster league was a league in its own right. we have the venues and numbers to do the same here, i know there is a huge amount of work involved in running an event but some clubs had no events this year

I am sure this has been mentioned before, but we need a series sponsor and a full time national series co-ordinator to maintain standards etc, with the Blast in mind this show's what can be done...
