Member Pictures

I just wanted to let you know that I now am allowing you to “cycle” through all of the currently databased members pictures from the
MEMBERS page. If you click on any member picture shown on that page, you will get further detail on that first picture, and continuing to click on the next picture shown will cycle you through all pictures stored for that person. There is a link under the picture to allow you to send me any details you’d like added to a particular picture. There is some cosmetic work for me to do on this page, and, as I mentioned, I still have 2000+ pictures to database, but I hope that there’s plenty enough for you to enjoy right now!

Please let me ( celia@drmath.ca ) know if you notice any errors in the details shown for the member pictures.

Celia McInnis
New Website

After much work (which even had Sir James analyzing old handwritten logs from Tom Parry’s days in the 1970’s!), we have databased the yearly kilometers ridden by all CKAP members.

  • You may see the member totals by clicking on the TOTALS link in the left margin.
  • You may search for particular entries by typing things into the text boxes at the top of the page and hitting one of the buttons to sort the information however you chooose.
  • You can get further information for a particular member by clicking on the CKAP# link in that table and in the next page which opens.

Please let me ( celia@drmath.ca ) know if you notice any errors in the distances reported.

Meanwhile, I am in the process of databasing virtually everything that is on the site. This will make it much easier to manage the CKAP web site in the future and to keep your totals accurate. Until the databasing is complete, some of the older manually maintained pages may contain old information.

James D. Wilson
CKAP Coordinator

After 15 years plus it’s time for “Sir” James to take a well deserved rest and allow new younger board members to take over control of CKAP. I do this reluctantly as it has become a habit to live in my basement office during the winter.

Paul Dicks # 1206 from Mississauga , Ontario will become the new CKAP Coordinator and starting with your 2009 logs, all logs and mail should be sent to Paul. I will be there to help Paul if needed during this first year, longer if required but hope that Paul will be on his own starting with the year 2010 Celia McInnis # 1159 from Ottawa , Ontario will become CKAP’s new webmaster. Celia McInnis will be improving the web page and taking it to the next level by adding a database which will replace the yearly list of current members by km. With a database and Celia’s skills, members will be able to add their own km directly to the CKAP web page and a yearly history of each member will become available to each member. This work is far beyond my ability but Celia has been doing this for years by keeping data on Ottawa time trials and is very qualified in this field.

“Sir” James will be responsible for ordering all awards and CKAP jerseys as required, printing all certificates, mailing awards, jerseys and hard copy of the CKAP annual report.

I’m sure that we will have a few bumps in the road with these major changes and I ask CKAP members to bear with us till we have it all sorted out. You will now have three qualified members doing the job that “Sir” James did alone and I know CKAP will improve by sharing the work and new ideas.

Please direct your 2009 cycling logs toPaul M. Dicks plus any funds payable to CKAP. Log and brochure addresses will be changed along with the list of CKAP board members on the web.

This would be a good time if you are connected to the internet to change from a hard paper copy of the annual report, to the web version, which is in colour and PDF format. Please contact James if you wish to change.

“Sir” James wishes to thank all CKAP members who have supported me during the 15 years plus that I was involved as your coordinator and hope that you will also support our new directors in the same way. It was a great trip with no complaints along the way
and it’s not over yet,
Cheer:-))) “Sir” James

James has received 247 – 2007 logs to date.

James will try to accommodate all he receives but once the annual report goes to press and is converted to PDF for the web page that’s it.
Any log arriving after that will go into the data base and will show on next years annul report, plus your km will not count towards the Hewes Challenge, so please try and get your log in on time.

Noted Problem by James:
Members using Excel formatted cycling logs are not deleting the “0” from “Grand Total Km at year end 2007 = 0” and adding their Grand total. The logs are formatted to include this total in the 2008 Gand Total once it’s put into the past Grand Total. Please remember to put this figure in the same cell that you deleted the “0”on your 2008 logs. Don’t know your last years Grand Total? All current members Grand Totals are listed on the CKAP web page.

Hi CKAP Members,

James has created 2006 – 2007 and 2008 Excel formatted cycling logs. You will have to delete the “0” and type in your grand total from last year in the same cell. Address information, adding information To cells which already have information in them is best done using the formula bar at the top of the screen. all cells are left formatted so click on the left side of the cell such as “CKAP #” on the top left side of the log. this will put CKAP # in the formula bar and then place your cursor, using your mouse, beside CKAP # in the formula bar and type your number. then Ckick on “Name” and repeat the same procedure. You will see that your information will be the same style and will fit the cell. Once past the address informaton the cell are whole line cells and you must click on the row number on the left and put the whole line into the formula bar to add your cycling clubs and check marks.

These Excel files have been saved in 5.0/95 Excel version which means that most Excel users should be able to open them. These files are located above the PDF logs, click on the Cycling Logs Link at the top left of all pages, except Photo Galleries. Once saved you can update the file to your version of Excel However, James has Excel Version 2003. If you plan on sending the log by e-mail don’t save in a higher version or James will not be able to open.

At the end of year 2006 you can then send me the completed log as an attachment to an e-mail. Page Two should also be included. Or you can put the information in the body of your e-mail if sending by e-mail.

If you have earned awards in the incentive part of CKAP. You can print the log and mail along with your cheque, payable to CKAP.

The cycling logs at the CKAP web site in PDF format are for members who don’t have Excel.
