Happy New Year, Logging Monthly Totals and New Award Costs
Happy New Year!: Have a Safe and Enjoyable Cycling Year in 2013!
Logs: Now is the time to send in your 2012 CKAP log! The MEMBERS page, by default, just shows the members who have submitted a log for 2012. If you haven’t yet submitted yours, you can see your information by either removing the “2012” from the “START YEAR” box or by looking for yourself on the TOTALS page. Note that at the CKAP AGM last May the Ottawa CKAP board voted to allow members to submit monthly rather than weekly totals in their CKAP logs. The choice is yours – monthly or weekly.
Award Costs Have Risen: Because of higher costs for the awards and postage, the CKAP Ottawa board voted (by email) to raise the cost of the “MINOR” awards (badges, medals and plaques for up to 25,000 total CKAP km) starting with the 2013 cycling log (year). CKAP has no annual fees and funds raised by the sale of the minor awards in the CKAP incentive program (1,000 km to 25,000 km) helps to pay for the “MAJOR” annual awards. CKAP members receive a free CKAP plaque and certificate for every 100,000 CKAP km that they log. Money from the sale of the minor awards is also used upon occasion to help us maintain the CKAP trophies. This year a new walnut base was added to the Bruce Timmermans 100,000 Km Club Trophy.
Here are the new costs of the minor awards:
Badges with certificates will increase by $2.00 ea from $8.00 to $10.00 including postage.
Medals with certificates will increase by $2.00 ea. from $18.00 to $20.00 including postage.
Plaques with certificates will increase by $5.00 ea. from $35.00 to $40.00 including postage.
