  4. Hi Linda, we have a Whatsapp group from last year which I've just renamed to flanders 20. If you, George and Tommy want to message me your mobile numbers I'll add you in.
  5. Hi George, good timing with the question. Got a reply from our landlord today to confirm the hostel is available and now has our name on it. We have two weeks to pay a deposit to secure fully. It's all below: base price for three nights is 1750Eu, plus 150EU cleaning, 60EU gas and electricity 80 - 100EU. So just over 2000Euro, and currently we have 13 (maybe 15) Jets and 3 wheelers (you, Linda, Tommy) = 160Eu a head. If we add more people the price per head comes down. Alan T, Dave and Carol are all candidates. Am also toying with inviting some of our friends at Hetton Hawks youth cycling club - the place can take up to 32 I think. There's a link to the property in his email. The pics don't really do it justice, as any of the crew from last year will tell you. It's just a k from the Haaghoek too, for cobble practice. ================== Hello Martin, I’d be delighted to welcome you and the Johnstone Jets and Wheelers cycling club again next year! The weekend of April 3rd to 6th 2020 is available. Conditions are the same. The rent of the house for a long weekend (3 nights) is 1.750 EUR. If you want to reserve, your reservation is complete and definitive from the moment the advance is paid. If requested, I can give you an option on this weekend for a period of 2 weeks. If there would be an other request for booking this weekend, you have the first chance to make your booking complete by paying the advance. The advance (875 EUR) has to be paid on bank account IBAN BE35 7363 0102 7137 BIC KREDBEBB (see details below). The second part of the rent (875 EUR) together with the warranty (500 EUR) and the cleaning cost (150 EUR) has to be paid 1 week before your weekend. The warranty is paid back 1 to 2 weeks after your stay with deduction of electricity, gas and eventual damage. The cost of gas is fixed (60 EUR), cost of electricity is according to consumption (0,50 EUR/kWh, normally around 80 to 100 EUR a weekend). When leaving the accommodation, tables must be clean, chairs must be put on the tables, the diches has to be done and the kitchen must be cleaned up. The rest is done by a cleaning company. For your information, you have to bring your own bed sheets and duvet or sleeping bags (pillows are provided). You also have bring your own towels. The kitchen is fully equipped, sauna is available. There is a storage room for the bicycles. Smoking in the accommodation is forbidden. Outside you can smoke. Animals are not allowed. You can also have a look at our website (unfortunately only in Dutch) www.buikberg.com.

  17. Hi Alan Apologies for the misunderstanding about WhatsApp. It did sound like you and the people you spoke to were advocating this. If new members are having trouble finding information then of course we should address this. I’m not sure how, but as I said above, most existing members don’t have a problem accessing the bunch - even from phones (I’m writing this on my phone). It’s true that people use social media. I do myself. It’s primarily for those impromptu rides that are out with the club structure. Perhaps an alert service for new members until they realise the structure of the cycling week - rides on Sundays with mid week events - might be a good idea. cheers Darryl

    Hoody Order

    Hi everyone, I am going to put in an order for hoodies, if you want one can you let me know what size you would like by the 3rd of January. Just a reminder, they will have the club logo embroidered and a print on the back. They will be £22 Thanks
  19. Hey You would like to start the festive season in a nice way?? I am organising a wee event before to leave at the bar the Avant-Garde in Glasgow, 7pm on Thursday the 12th. See you all there, Cédric
  20. This is interesting reading, very much on the pulse. We are a great club with lots going on and this needs to be communicated, it is why we are members. We all love cycling and we are busy people (so many Strava segments) and this will always have people collectively seeking convenience. Right now I use a WhatsApp group to organise my Tuesday runs, it works well. But I have become aware that it is not in the spirit of the club so I will be posting my runs back on the Bunch as well, where all club members can view and participate. I am open to progress in the future, if needed, so let’s have the discussion to find out what people feel they need to get the most from the club.
  21. I asked that people write to me so I could take to committee but am delighted to see it here too. What is hard about looking at the forum, or posting up there? I don't know but lots of people don't do it. Wishing it won't help. They look at stuff sent to them, that's how every ad campaign works. They don't browse forums to find out what to do. I spoke to about twenty people at prize-giving and they all thought the Forum was not the best way of telling people what is going on. I am but a mere servant of the club members and agreed that we need to look at this more closely. My email was not a WhatsApp proposal, it was really a request for ideas to help publicise rides rather than have people look for them. I chose WhatsApp as an example, other media messaging services are available. As Membership Secy I receive lots of requests from new members who cannot work out where the info is on the bunch. For me it is difficult to use from a phone and most importantly the Bunch is passive and does not alert people to rides and events. For instance the Prize-giving was initially buried in Announcements. Confirmed attendance at the prize-giving doubled in 24 hours after we circulated an email to all members. I'll bet this thread is only seen by a few people, most will never look for it because it is an unknown unknown. Please post here, write privately to me or, better, come to committee meeting to discuss if you think there is a problem and, if so, how to fix it. And let me know if you can help. Personal view: If there is no problem then we can continue with a passive Forum based on 15yo tech. I think that's a mistake. I know that many club members are in a lot of other media groups and receive a LOT of ride notifications so I think JWCC should be one of them. Alan Secretary
