BSCRA SCRN Editor

BSCRA Chairman Keith Gibson is the new BSCRA SCRN Editor.

Pat Skene has retired as  SCRN Editor.   Keith was the only other candidate nominated at the ACM,  so was appointed unopposed. Keith would very much welcome assistance in producing SCRN.  Clearly there is a very heavy workload for one man filling both of  these major roles in BSCRA.

Many thanks to Pat for the excellent magazine.  As well as being much appreciated by the UK membership, the magazine is much enjoyed by the international readers.

James Cleave’s letter


Dear BSCRA Council,


Please accept my resignation as chairman of the BSCRA.


I have given this decision much thought over the past few months and feel that I cannot currently dedicate enough time to fulfil the expectations of the role. When I took over the role of chairman, I stepped into the post to help the BSCRA in a difficult time, knowing that my existing commitments would interfere with the dedication needed for such a role. The critical times for the BSCRA are in May and September, which are also the critical times in secondary education. With the creation of a new STEM College, as part of my employer’s academy trust, I have become busier than ever over the past few months. It is also great to now have keen members wanting to take on leading roles within the association and I therefore feel that it is time to step down.


I am not initially interested in taking on another council position at the current time. The PRO position may become vacant, but I do not wish to stand for this role for the same reasons as outlined above.


I would however, wish to offer my continued service to work with the BSCRA to develop the following areas which are fundamental to the future of the BSCRA:

Development and Introduction of the new Production Chassis

Total revision of the rule book

Development of the BSCRA ranking list

Development of Slot Stox as a BSCRA class


I would like to thank the people I have worked with in my time on the BSCRA council and wish the next chairman all the best.


Yours faithfully,

James Cleave

July 2013
