Marshal Training 21st August

To all SDVLCC riders who have not completed marshal training yet.   All Club members (who have not paid the non-marshal fee) will be rostered to marshal because each week marshals are required to make our racing possible.   To marshal it is a requirement to have Police accredited training.

 There will be marshal training straight after the race on 21st August 2016   (KOM graded races   –   good chance to blow off the winter cobwebs!).   Please reply to let me know whether you will attend or not so I can inform Greg Jackson of numbers for the session. The training will take about 30 minutes.


Terry Proctor

SDVLCC Committee member

Southern Vets is unable to race without marshals every week.  Our Safety Officer Terry Holder has drawn up a 2016 Marshal roster to the end of November (apart from Milang) and posted on the Marshal Roster page.  Please check the roster to be sure you can attend on your rostered day.  If not, you must seek out a swap in the first instance well ahead of time, and let Terry know asap.  Terry’s contact number is 0410 795 584. Late notification of inability to attend makes life very difficult for Terry (missing out his own rides!) and potentially compromises rider safety.  Thanks for your help with this.

Paz Russo Updates

23 April Damien Vears advises that Paz is going very well so far.  He has two more weeks of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.  He will then undergo a further scan.  After that, fingers crossed, he can starting riding and returning to normal life.  Southern Vets sends all our best wishes to Paz.

11 Mar Frank Schoen reports that Paz is heading home.  We will advise later if he would like visitors.  He will be unable to drive for quite some time.  The biopsy has shown that the tumours are very serious and potentially aggressive.

10 Mar Terry Proctor advises Paz’s operation was completed on Monday with the removal of the tumours.  Initial indications are that things went well but there will be more biopsy results tomorrow.  Paz was chatty when Terry spoke to him and he’s keen on getting full race fitness back in due course, but he’ll be advised to stay away from the bike for many months.

7 Mar Southern Vets members are saddened that fellow Club member and SAMCA President Paz Russo has been admitted to Royal Adelaide Hospital with a brain tumour diagnosed late last week.  Our understanding is that Paz was to undergo surgery today Monday 7 March.  Thanks to Damien Vears (SAMCA Vice President) for this information.  Damien asks that Paz not have visitors for a few days until the post-operative situation is clearer.  He will advise us.

Our most sincere best wishes and positive thoughts go to Paz.
