Registration for 2015

PLEASE NOTE: No riders will be permitted to compete in 2015 unless they are registered. This is to ensure that members have insurance coverage while competing in events. Rider registration will be checked at the signon desk tomorrow night. If you register at the last minute before coming out to the track, please bring along a copy of the confirmation email.

To register go to the IMG site. Logon with the username and password that you used to register last year. The annual subscription for 2015 remains unchanged.

If you have forgotten your password, go to top right hand corner and click on username and password. That will enable IMG to send you another password to your email address. To ensure you transfer the numbers and letters correctly it is advised to cut and paste.

Any queries please direct them to membership@actvets.cc and not the contact on the password retrieval page.

Check your address details in IMG

As mentioned in Alex O'Shea's Christmas message, we are looking at updating the Club's Constitution. In order to call a special meeting to change the Constitution, we are required by the current Constitution to advise members by postal mail (which is one of the the things we are planning to change).

Could members please check their postal address in IMG by the 19th January to ensure that we have the correct contact details .
