AGM 19th September 2017

All committee positions will be vacant at the AGM, and all nominations are welcome. A club the size of ours can not function without the hard work and dedication of our members. We urge all of our members to consider taking up a role to help give back to the local mountain biking community. There are many varied roles available, most are not too time consuming, and all help to continue the hard work that our club members have done in the club’s years. There have already been some very hard working committee members who have indicated they will not be fulfilling the roles they have in the past. This is the perfect time for some different faces on the committee.

Many hands make light work, and any contributions of you time, no matter how large or small, are greatly appreciated.

The following are the roles within the club that are up for grabs:
