I know this is covered elsewhere - but I'll be buggered if I can find it with forum search: I'm planning my first DIY's but my circumstances mean they will tend to be short notice. What is considered good form in terms of giving notice to the DIY organisers? Is 2 days too little? I'm using Paul Stewart (inside M25).

Blimey. I just enter the night before, unless you need the org to check the controls meet the minimum distance (for an advisory route).

In the past it's been enough to sort it out with the org by agreeing the route and paying the few quid to enter, and send a text message from the end of my drive saying I'm about to ride it. This meant i could sort it out at leisure and wait for good weather!
Besides, it wouldn't be audacious if success were guaranteed.

For my mandatory route DIYs, I usually enter the night before too, but once or twice have entered on the day - I think it's considered fine to do this, so long as you get the entry in before setting off (happy to be corrected if this isn't good practice). There's a good chance that the DIY Org might not get to process your entry until a few days later, but so long as the track you submit starts after you submit the DIY entry you should be good I think.

My understanding is that DIY organisers will tend only to look at entries after an event has been ridden and suitable POP has been provided (typically gps based)

DIY organisers arent under an obligation to vouch for / verify that proposed routes meet minimum distance and if they did so in advance for riders who end up as DNS or DNF is a waste of their time. 

Therefore very little notice is no big deal. 

Anecdotally I believe that their is a correlation between DIY DNS and how far in advance entries are submitted. 

Therefore it would appear to be wise to submit an entry just before setting off.  No need to send it in a week ahead, the organiser isnt doing anything with it and you might change your mind.

Trying to enter an ECE for an event tonight (10 pm), but the link on the calendar page says it's in the past and it won't let me enter... Is there any way to enter by email? Fishing about the FAQs, the only alternative is to enter by post.

I will have an email for Martin, but it's probably out of date.

Search for Martin’s name in the permanents list.  You want ECER01 (if ECE is 100km) assuming calendar event is 200km or more.  In other words enter the ECE same as though you were ECEing a perm. Then let Martin know which calendar event it’s for.

We will take a look at that and see what logic is being used on the event details page. Not sure whether the problem is in the data coming from the aukweb database or the way it's being used on audax.uk, or even a combination.

it shouldn't be!

yes someone else reported something similar (it said they hadn't entered the calendar event which they had) just tried the event myself and got the same error. Try entering the old school way using these links and email me the GPX if required

https://www.audax.uk/event-details?eventId=1376

https://www.audax.uk/event-details?eventId=1379

(that's for the 100+100 and 300+100 but if you search Malins in the perms you should find the one you need)

That restriction has been changed on the test system so that an ECE can be entered on the day, and should be pushed to production in the next few days. No changes made to the calendar event itself - that is still restricted to before the event date (unless the event closes earlier), but would need to consult more widely on that one.
