Event Charges

So a while ago I suggested to the RYA that they could try charging per event rather than per day of racing as they currently do.

This would then create a level charge structure for clubs and leave it down the the organisers to put on as many races as possible for that event charge!

Not only would this be better value for money for the organisers, it'd mean the racers would get more at each event as most organisers would probably put on more racing per event as it wouldn't cost any more to run into 2 or 3 days of racing!

It could also solve the current problems as clubs could combine to form one big event and therefore pay less than if they each run one small event each.

For our side, we're very restricted by tide. We can only run one race per day so end up paying twice as much for two races over two days than we would for two races on one dayif we weren't so tide dependant, hardly fair!

Sadly it'd seem this suggestion fell on deaf ears and I see our fees have simply risen for this year again. I was promised this wouldbe suggested to all clubs as I felt it would be a great way to encourage more racing, yet sadly it'd seem it wasn't.

What's everyone's thoughts on this? Racer or organiser, let me know! Please do post on here so all can discuss, or if you'd rather keep your thoughts private, give me an email on larbys@live.co.uk

Just want to find a way to help resolve the current situation and get a bit of sense back into the way things are run!!

Cheers, James

Sorry, I should just clarify I'm talking about admin fees to the club here, not event licences!

An event licence covers you for a whole weekend of racing!

Cheers, Larby

Do you mean for the Insurance James?
Or do the RYA charge for your event?

Surely with more racers the costs will be coming down?
