Things will never work out with these guys because we simply have some wrong people in those organizations! Not all but just some.

Non comprendo. Inglés?

 

The new CSA constitution sort "OF" outlined that this was going to happen.

 

Or at least I think that's what it means. :D

That sounds like a plausible translation :thumbup:

Cycling needs to fall under the rules and regulations of SASCOC - the Olympic body that governs sport in South Africa. Failing to do will will result in non-selection for the Olympics.

 

In essence it means that each province can only have one governing body, i.e. North Gauteng, Central Gauteng and Southern Gauteng have to "merge" into one "Gauteng" affiliate. How it affects PPA, I have no idea.

 

I can only guess that the PPA want to do things THEIR way which doesn't comply with the way CSA is obliged to run things according to SASCOC, and ultimately the Dept. of Sport & Recreation.

 

There was a meeting last night for the NGC, CGC and SGC unions about a merge into one province. I wasn't there, but I have seen the minutes from the meeting.

This is busy happening through all sporting bodies. Giving Gauteng with its higher population density the same 'pull' & representation as a a province like the Northern Cape does not seem fair to the potential higher number of athletes in those provinces. Guess the gauvamint wants/need to control for the sake of control?

SASCOC have given CSA until the end of February to comply, or they will put them into administration and do it for them... so it appears to be a SE-RI-US (serious) matter.

 

However, to get the structures into place won't happen overnight, but the commitment needs to be there. Hopefully this will also signal the end to the RACETEC/ARGUS/CYCLE TOUR TRUST monopoly too.

Sounds like Cycle Events will be moving their online entry system to the / a Racetec system

Hi,

 

SASCOC has told cycling SA that it has to fall in line with all of the other sports or be put under there control.

 

As it stands until next week the current " CSA has 15 provinces of which PPA because of history was regarded as a province with voting rights

 

SASCOC say,s that the country has only 9 provinces so that is how it must be reflected, thus PPA is now only a club that falls into the WC

 

AS for Gauteng it will now become one province but with 6 sub regions that will have to be set up these will then filter down into smaller regions. This has a profound effect with regard to development as now cycling will be reconized at school level

 

Hope this helps?

And this means what??? Munney? Don't make me larf.

I know I'm in the butt-end of the world, but have you seen what happens at schools with 'recognised' sports codes?? When you start with language like 'codes' then you know what you've got.

Good luck to us all.
