The Ride & AGM

It was the coldest, hailiest Saturday for years - so what was Sunday and the AGM going to be like? Not as cold and not so much hail, but the showers first thing in the morning were pretty regular and heavy.

Nevertheless there were about 8 bikes and quite a number of cars at the info bay and more at Woodbury Boston, so considering the weather it was a good turn-out. Daniel had ridden in from Bow River and Mike Saunders who used to live in Denmark and now in Thailand was also there. Mike was one of the original committee members of our Club.

Warming up at Young'sThe ride to Youngs Siding was uneventful, with only one heavy shower, but the lakes that used to be paddocks made for interesting scenery. After a coffee stop at Youngs where Ken Donaldson from Williams Bay was waiting to meet us we headed off for Woodbury Boston.

Scenically-located meeting in progressYou can’t fail but be impressed by the view over Torbay, especially on a wind-swept day with a big swell. Forrest, Chester, Trudy, Andy and Des had arrived early and had set the tables out and lit the fire. Forrest had the urn on and had made scones - all most appreciated.

Ron receives life membershipThe AGM was then held and Ron Allen was presented with Life Membership for his dedication and service to the Club, among other things he has been treasurer for 10 years, well done and thanks Ron. The committee basically stayed the same except Andy Burn is now treasurer, Antoinet Glazema assistant secretary and Ian Grant 2nd secretary.

After we had lunch and a natter it was time to tidy up and have a dry ride home. A successful day - reports are elsewhere in the Club News.
