The MMBCC Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 23 July at the Delatite Hotel, starting at 6.30pm.
Head to the pub at about 6 for a drink, order dinner and let’s have a chat about the running of the club.
The AGM is a little earlier this year to give the Road Sub-committee a chance to apply for permits in time for us to start racing in early October. We already have a few members continuing from last summer but we need a few more of you to help out.
We also need a new Secretary. (In case you didn’t know, Ben and Melissa are expecting. Congratulations!) Ben will likely be a little bit busier at home for the next while; therefore we need to find a replacement.
Plus there’s the Dirt Crits sub-committee, Junior Development, Recreational Rides and General Committee positions to fill.
If you’d like to have a chat about what’s involved, send a message to Damian or Bruce.
Rider Development Grant
The RDG application form is now available for download here. The club’s had a good year financially, so let’s find some promising junior riders to help out!
Applications close on 28 June.
Successful applicants will be announced at the AGM on 23 July.
The 2020 Tour will be one of the topics up for discussion at the AGM. The 2019 Mansfield Subaru Tour was reasonablly financially successful so the committee are recommending we host the event again in 2020 - but we need to discuss it at the AGM and get the whole club to make that decision.
We had a committee of six working on the Tour this year and we’d like a couple more for next year. With a couple of the existing committee unavailable for 2020, that means we’ll be after four more to join the current four members.
Have a think about what you could contribute and we can discuss it in more detail at the AGM.
If you’d like a chat in the meantime, send a note to Bruce or call him on 0419 533 120.
