·        Road Safety Day: Sunday 17th July at Carlisle Race Course. Paul has organized stall and volunteers.

·         Clubs Liason Officer Position:  Phil has had the new instruction pack, but has not made it to any committee meetings.  Does he still want to do the job?  Road Burners are interested in affiliating and meet at The Black Swan (we think), every Tuesday. The first one in the month is the best time to go. New clubs setting up in Barrow also. Paul will pass this information on to Phil.

There will be a training course for regional and local reps. October date to follow.

Furness has an idea for a place for the AGM – Askham scout hut/youth club/cricket club.

Will let Caroline know when they’ve fixed the venue letters can be sent out to members and we can advertise in streetbiker. Date of AGM was originally set for 18th Sept.
