New committee

We had our AGM on 14 September 2015.  Our President, Luc Plowman, and Treasurer, Shane Flint, stepped down from their positions after 4 years on the job.  Luc and Shane have been the backbone of the committee for the last few years and done a great job supporting the club and all that it does.

Clayton Neil was elected as our new President, and Jerun Terlaak was elected Treasurer.  Jo Hunt was also elected as a General Committee member.  Big thanks to Clayton, Jerun and Jo for putting up their hands to join the committee!  Ian Burns and Alastair Riddoch were re-elected as Secretary and Memberships office respectively.

BCG AGM Monday 14 August 2015 730pm at Tanswell’s Hotel

The BCG AGM will be held on Monday the 14th September at Tanswells hotel in Beechworth at 7.30pm. Dinner beforehand at the pub from 6.30pm – email secretarybcg@gmail.com to RSVP for dinner.

We are looking for nominations from interested club members for President and Secretary. Luc and Shane are stepping down after doing a great job for the last few years. The club relies on an enthusiastic committee, and its a rewarding job that keeps the club functioning and makes Beechworth a great place for mountain biking. If you’re interested in helping out perhaps get in contact with one of the current committee members to have a chat about whats involved.
