Hi all
Where has the year gone ? !!!! It’s AGM time again.

The usual process will take place. Each year ALL the committee positions are up for re-election. This includes the executive & MTB committees. This year the AGM will be held on Thursday the 16th of July. If you wish to stand for a position you need to let our Secretary Sascha no by the 9th of July. This leaves us time to organise a vote if required.

At this point in time I assume that everyone is standing for the same positions. If not please let me know. Either way if you are keen to be on a committee let Sascha know & if necessary we will have a vote.

As for my role as President. I mentioned last year that I would not be standing this year & that is still the case, even though I enjoy the role and receive a lot of satisfaction from it. I am hoping that there is someone who would like to step into the role. With my new job / career, my commitment to BASE & the amount of time away with work I’m struggling to fit family time in. I am still keen to be Race Director of the Tour if the club is happy. Having said all that there is a lot happening with the club & many important issues in process. So i’m not going to leave the club stranded. If no one is keen I will continue on, but will reduce my time on other things such as working bees & other projects.

So I hope there is someone with as much passion as me willing to take on the role. I am more than willing to help guide a new person into the role & am certainly willing to help transfer as much knowledge and history over to whom ever wants to know.

Look forward to seeing you at the AGM.

MTBA Track Building Workshop – Bright

Over the weekend of June 13th & 14th nineteen participants from Bright, Albury and Wagga participated in the MTBA track building workshop in Bright. Both mornings were spent in some intensive theory lessons facilitated by Marty Krieg from MTBA, covering all aspects of trail building from tools, corner construction methods through to signage and working with land managers. In the afternoon we all headed up to Budda Hood and put the new knowledge into action.

Across the top of Budda Hood is a whole new section including two new climbing switch backs and a great descent including two drop offs from some large quartz rocks (which were very heavy to move!)

Overall a fantastic weekend with some new trail building techniques learned and some great new track to ride on. See pictures HERE
