You may have seen the words "Entry fee includes $1 KCA Surcharge" on race announcements for Kansas races. The KCA surcharge is a exactly that — a surcharge collected by the race promoters from the riders and paid to the KCA.
USCF rules allow Local Associations to collect a surcharge from racers. This surcharge is an important source of funding for the association and the KCA uses the money collected to fund it’s general operations.
The KCA Registration and Results system, USCF Officials Clinics and the various Kansas State Championships are all examples of KCA supported activities.
For a complete accounting of the KCA operations look at the Financial Reports on About KCA section of this web site.
The final results have been tabulated and the winners of the 2005 Kansas Omnium have been determined. Check the Omnium Page for complete results. This year the Omnium winners will receive a personalized plaque that recognizes their achievement. Plaques are being ordered now and will be distributed at the KCA Annual Meeting and Banquet.
The Kansas Omnium recognizes the rider with the best combined results in the State Championship road race, criterium, and time trial. To be eligible for the Omnium title, competitors must participate in all three Kansas State Championship events in the same class/category, be an annual USCF license holder and a Kansas resident.
Contrary to what was published on the State Championship Road Race and Criterium Race flyer, points will be awarded as follows: 15, 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point for finishing. Ties will will be decided by highest placing in the Road Race. Awards for the Kansas Omnium will be awarded at a later date to be announced. | More |

computer equipment. We have received $1245.00 from over 30 donors
