Following the Annual General Meeting (AGM) conducted at Kewdale on 27 Feb 22, importantwork has been undertaken to allow the club to move ahead. This work is being done by a dedicated committee which I am pleased to announce as follows:

The most important message I wish to convey here is to acknowledge the outstanding work of the Interim Committee over the past couple of months. Led by Mark Williamson, this group volunteered at very short notice to facilitate a successful transition of functions which allowed the club to continue to operate. Some of that support included financial backing. I personally wish to acknowledge the following people:

Mark Williamson

Eddy Pope

Chris Norris

Paul Borrett

Dave Harwood

Helen Peniston

Mel Davies

Richard Barville

Sam Bolton

As always, there have been many regular members and volunteers who stepped up each week to keep racing going. These people arrive early and depart late each Sunday to ensure we can continue to enjoy our sport. I thank you on behalf of all members.

I acknowledge there will always be challenges for our club and harnessing the talents of members is pivotal to achieving our goals. Accordingly, I invite you to communicate ideas to us and support the committee whose responsibility it is to run the club on your behalf. In stating this, I request you use appropriate forms of communication to make your recommendations. The club Facebook Group Page is the club’s portal to provide you with information. It is provided for financial club members and aimed at updating you on important racing and administrative information. It is monitored for compliance. 

There are still things to do, and I ask for your patience and understanding in the coming days as we navigate our way forward. I was inspired by the level of support for the new committee and the level of enthusiasm shown by members present at the AGM. Please remember, our aim is to race – ‘rain, hail or shine’. In the meantime, stay healthy, active and continue to race hard. I’ll see you at the next race.
