Eligibility for the BAR competition :- only those holding valid current CTC membership at the date of any qualifying event will be entitled to the relevant BAR points. It is the responsibility of each individual member to ensure that their CTC membership nr and expiry date, and any subsequent renewal of same, are notified to Christine White or Jon Preston, prior to and throughout the season, to ensure that both the Club Membership Register and the online BAR points tables are kept up to date at all times. If you are a CTC member but find your name is not included in the BAR points tables, please notify a committee member immediately. Otherwise your BAR points will not be registered.
