AGM 2018

If you're REALLY KEEN to be part of the club's next Annual General Meeting, you'll have to wait!

We thought our financial year was the calendar year (as was the case for AWCC & LPCC before we merged). Consumer Affairs Victoria has confirmed that this is not so - our year ends 30 June.

So the AGM will be in July or August.

Special mention to Andrew Falconer for being our Commissaire for the series and his time.

After racing and presentations, everyone stayed back and enjoyed some amazing wood fired pizza. Thankfully by then the temp had dropped significantly. The great thing about a local club is that we are all friendly. Everyone moved about talking with each other.

After a short break over christmas and New years, the Crits will resume from Jan 3rd. There was also some exciting news tonight about our "1k Crit series" starting on Wednesday 21st Feb 2018. No matter what grade you race in; A, B, C, or D grade, if you start 6 of the 7 crit races in this next series (21st Feb to 4th April each Wednesday night) your name will go into a draw and the name pulled out of the hat will win........$1000!!!

So enjoy yourself over the Christmas/New Year break, and come back and join us in 2018 for some racing fun and a chance to win.
