The AGM is an important event in the eyes of the club. The meeting begins with the presentation of the Clubs financial report and President report.  All committee positions are then declared vacant and members are given the opportunity to stand for positions. The positions are as follows –

President – Vacant
Secretary – Vacant
Treasurer – Scott Keneally has offered to stand for this position in 2014
1. Race Director – David Knight has offered to stand for this position
2. Sponsorship – John Allison has offered to stand for this position in 2014

7. Media Co-ordinator – Vacant – NEW POSITION
GESA Race Director – Vacant

Role descriptions are available here.

If any member wishes to stand for any position, then they are encouraged to let the club know either prior to, or on the night of the AGM. If more than one member steps forward for a single position, then it will be resolved with a slow bike race across a grass strip of approximately 20 metres*

Having a complete committee ensures that races can continue to happen whilst maintaining lower workloads on each individual committee member. There is great support from existing and previous committee members.

After all the exciting official talk, the night will flow into the less exciting PRIZE GIVING!

We will start by presenting the winners of the 2013 Giant State Championships with their personally engraved medals and trophies and follow up with the series winners for the Giant XCO Series (available here – Championship Table). After that, we’ll draw out the tension with some random and/or amusing prizes, followed by the draw for the major prize –Giant Anthem 27.5 1 – proudly provided by Giant Cycling World Adelaide. Remember that you have to be there to win it!

*Slow bike race may not happen. Jousting sticks may be used if the race does go ahead. The club will most likely accept all members offers for assistance in the one roll and the club can simply have 6 presidents**

** There will not be more than 1 club president at any one time
