New Club Kit……….time for a change.?

Recently we noticed that our stock of club kit is running pretty low, so now is the time to organize an order for more. We do still have some items left, if your looking for a jersey / shorts / gilet contact PJ Nolan on 087-2848992. Before we order we needed to have a look at two things; sponsors + design. Navan RC is not a ‘sponsor driven club’, we are owned and run by our members, but we do need sponsorship to keep the club running.

  • Sponsorship – We have been very lucky to have great sponsors like Avonmore who have stuck with us over a long period of time, and will continue to be our main sponsor. We have been in negotiations with some new companies and are happy to say that we have secured some extra funding for the year ahead. Therefor some of the ‘old’ logos on the jersey will have to come off to make room. We thank all of sponsors over the past years and look forward to working with them again.
  • Design – The club colours of purple and yellow are our signature. They are instantly recognizable and will never change.! The only proposed change is to the design / layout of the jersey, it has been the same for a number of years now and many members are ready for a new look. Also there is a wider range of products available to us, such as winter jerseys, arm-warmers, shoe covers, and a new ‘Race Line’ of kit which is of a much better quality.

To be fair to everyone in the club we are giving you the chance to have your say on this issue. We will hold a club meeting on Wednesday 25th July at 8/8:30pm in Teach na Teamhrach. We don’t mean to rush through any major changes like this but now is the time to have your say, if you don’t voice your opinion now it may be too late. When we order the kit it will take up to 2months to arrive, so we need to get cracking.

Spin11 are our kit suppliers, and i have been in discussion with them over our possible new kit designs. Here are a few sample designs for you to view, but dont forget nothing has been decided yet, and any changes will have to be passed at the club meeting next Wednesday.

Summer League Table

The summer league table has been updated with the latest results and it is getting very tight at the top.

Remember that everyone’s two lowest scores will be deducted at the end, which means you don’t lose out if you go on holidays or have a couple of bad results.

So the leaders are not as far ahead as they might hope. There are about 6 more weeks of racing left, including a hill climb and one more time trial.
