View Full Version : Race Meeting Dates

6-Dec-09, 09:32 AM
Hello, where can I find just a straight list of race dates? I want to add them to my diary/year planner and to save getting a magazine out of storage I thought I would use the club site.

What I want: "3/4 Jan - Stanford Hall" for example.

Any offers!

Hi Bob,

Have you been asleep?

Look at Sub Forum/General/ Race Calendar pages 1,2,3.

Several of us have asked the same question and it is being looked at by those who know.

Regards, Kip.

Click on Race Site Map on the main menu and scroll down the page. They are under the map.

I know that - what I want to do is to get to it without going through all that rigmorole! I looked at the home page as a newbie would - 'oooh when is the racing - ah, no link, where do I go now. Ah it says Racing at the side I'll look there.' Or, 'Ah calender - what do all those red dates mean - can't be bothered 'hovering' over those one by one!'

See just a list of dates and then a means of find futher information.

Yes, found it - but is it complete - the Europeans are on there but not the Worlds!

The club has NEVER published a list of race events that I am aware of. The club has an EVENT calendar which includes all types of club events. The home page clearly shows the next eight club events and the calendar lists all of them.

The web site also automatically produces a list of events (in the next 365 days - see below for link) that have the words "race" or "racing" in them - if they don't then how is it supposed to work out that they are race events?

Short of delivering a personal copy of the calendar to your door every month I don't see how much easier it can get (but wait.... you DO get a copy delivered every month - it's called a magazine ;))

I guess I will think twice before suggesting a change could be considered .

Think I will stick with the mag which DOES and always has had a Diary of
Events which includes race meetings.

Kip, don't stop suggesting things.

There is work currently being done to incorporate all the comments received.

As I explained in the other thread we have a new member to the club who is going to help out with the 'finding what a newcomer needs' issue. I would have thought Race Events & Map would be a fairly obvious plave to find out about the race events and their locations to be honest??

Oh by the way, have a word with the Diary Secretary about the lack of the Worlds entry! ;)

This thread is going to be closed as it is already being discussed here. http://www.hovercraft.org.uk/showthread.php?t=22912
