BC Randonneurs News Update, February 20, 2021

2021 Ride Schedule

Brevets: All the potential brevets of our 2021 Ride Season have been entered into the database schedule. However the event dates are currently shown as TBD to reflect the ride suspension in effect since Dec 8th 2020.

Permanents: suspended until further notice

Cancelled Events:

Spring Social + Roger Street Memorial Ride (early March)
Pacific Populaire (early April)
Fleche/Trace (early May)

We are hopeful that we will have a restart opportunity later in the year to allow us to offer rides again, perhaps like our amended 2020 program. Volunteers are still needed! If you have route ideas and / or are interested to help out with registration, please contact your Regional Brevet Coordinator.

Roger Street Award 2020

Nominations will close 1 March 2021. Send your recommendation, along with a brief explanation of why you think the volunteer is deserving, to the award committee chair Dave Macmurchie (dmacmurc@shawdotca).
For more information on the history of the award go here.

Pin / Medal Distribution 2020

Distribution of the 2020 brevet / volunteer pins for LM, SI & Peace regions should now be complete. The Island should be finished by 1 March. If you did not receive the pins you believe you were due, please contact:

Vancouver Island Riders: Mark Payten (mpayten@shawdotca)
All other Regions: Colin Fingler (fingler4@telusdotnet)

Super Randonneur and other ACP medals are expected to arrive from France later this spring and will be distributed with the BC-12 pins, and possibly some 40,000 km pins and the Rambling Randonneur pins.

Call for 2021 BC Randonneur Pin Design Submissions

The BC Randonneurs are optimistic that an improved BC Pandemic situation later this year will allow us to ride brevets again, at least in some form. In accordance with our Club tradition (since 1985), we are calling for new pin designs to commemorate the 2021 Rando Season.
We need designs for brevet series pins (200, 300, 400, 600, 1000)

Please send your ideas to Pin Coordinator Karen Smith (ksmith222@shawdotca) by 1 March 2021.

Some things to keep in mind when designing:

-The maximum length of any dimension of the pin should be 1.25 inches. Artwork can be larger but drawn to scale.
-Maximum 3 colours.
-As the pin is small, not a lot of detail works best.

Check out the link to our Pin Archive on the Rando website. Have a look, and get inspired…

Karen is looking forward to the submissions. The Directors hope to select a design at the March Board meeting.
