You only get the highest Randonneur series award that you qualify for in a season (except for Super Randonneur) i.e. Randonneur 500 and Randonneur 1000 only gets you the Randonneur 1000.

Is it considered "bad form" to plagiarise someone else's Perm for a new DIY?

I need a 200k perm/diy to fill in the gaps for my RRtY(s) over the winter months, but my nearest 200k perm requires a 35km round trip from home to its nearest point (yes, I know I'm a lightweight). My cunning plan is to devise a DIY starting and finishing from home and using all but one of the existing perm's controls, but I wouldn't want to break an unwritten rule or unwittingly offend anyone.

Probably.  But there is nothing they can do about it.  And it really depends on how much of the route is shared (doing it all as a DIY is frowned upon, and adds to the burden of DIY organisers unecessarily, but replicating a bit of of the route much less so.  Organisers don't own the roads.  I'd suggest 35km diversion falls into the latter scenario, btw).

Sometimes, however, you can come to a "special agreement" with the organiser about the start/finish location.  If it is one of my perms (AWE or MH) and we are talking about a reasonable deviation, get in touch and we'll see what can be sorted out.  Might not be possible but don't ask, don't get...

Great answer, thank you.

Can't be bothered to start a new thread, but is Bob going for O240RTY? :o

Normally I'd think it was a glitch, but since it's Bob, I'd bet he really did ride the Old 240 on the 1st and 2nd of November.

He hasn't ridden it in December yet, though. Slacker.

I'm reliably informed it's a system glitch, which is being addressed.

How far are you off RRTY then?

(I'm sure I've read the answer to this somewhere, but can't find it now)

Is it possible to get events you rode before you were an AUK member added to your results once you become a member (provided your name is on the finishers list etc.)?

Aye, that was it, the recorder. Knew I'd read it somewhere. Never thought to look on the 'Contact Us' page.  ::-)

Thanking you.

Ahem... Yes - The Recorder can do this, for rides in this season and, usually, for the season just finished.
Things older than that, sorry, no can do.

I think I can guess the answer to this one, but if anyone knows...
The ACP Randonneur 10000 award requires (along other things) 2 full sets of rides at 200, 300, 400, 600 & 1,000km.
Over what period does a set need to be completed? Is it a calendar year, or the overall qualification period of up to 6 years, or something else?

It's the ACP season, so 1st Nov to 31st Oct.

I don't know whether they require the two series to be completed in separate seasons, though I don't see any prohibition on doing them both in one.

The ACP's rubric suggested doing the 200-1000 series within a season. Sophie of the ACP specifically noted that the 1000 didn't have to be in the same year as the SR.

It's specifically whether the 1000s need to be on the same year as an SR series for me. So can I take Sophie's view as definite?

Do you have a reference to that? A little while ago you wrote1 (in reply to a query about the ACP R10k and AUK B25k):

The 2, 3, 4, 6 and 10 BRMs have to be done in a year (twice), effectively an extended Super Randonneur series.
although a few posts later you said it was different for the R5k
The ACP Randonneur 5000 does not require the 1000 to be in the same year as the Super Randonneur series (200, 300, 400, 600).

Given that the ACP rules say "2 full series of ACP brevets (200, 300, 400, 600 and 1000 km)" ("Deux fois la série des Brevets de Randonneurs Mondiaux soit 2 fois 200, 300, 400, 600 et 1000 km") rather than, say, "2 SR series and two additional 1000km rides," I'd not be happy to assume different years for the SR and the 1k were OK without a definite statement.





1: I wasn't stalking: this is probably the first time I've got the YACF search to give a sensible result

Trying to find the reference now. I disagreed with Sophie's statement but I think marcusjb e-mailed Sophie for the straight dope.

Thanks for the link, but I do find it a little surprising: the question was asked, and answered to the effect that the rides can be done in any year (within the six year limit, obv) and any order - which doesn't strike me as much of a series ... The format of the claim form supports this, mind, as it asks for details of your 2 200s, your 2 300s and so on, rather than setting them out in series order.

I've suggested to Chris Crossland that as ACP Correspondent, it might be worth asking for formal clarification.

Are ECEs only doable via the cheque/SAE method? (I have never owned a chequebook, nor do I really know what a SAE is...)

For Audax purposes an SAE is a Stamped (Large please if you expect a badge or much Stuff) self-Addressed C5 (big enough for A5 = A4 folded in half) Envelope.
