Yes, its time to have your say on how mountain biking in Auckland is going forward...you can sit there and moan or give 1 hour a month to help make MTBing in Auckland better for all.
We are meeting at The Drake, on Drake St near Victoria Park this Tuesday 17th August. Meeting start time is 7 pm with food and an open bar from 6.30. After the SGM there will be more food and drink available briefly before we get into the AGM. Hopefully we’ll be wrapped up by 9.30 or so.
This year, the AGM will be vitally important to the future of the club. Please come along and show your support.The reality is that unless we get some more people prepared to step onto the committee to help out, the future viability of the club is in question. Yes we are having a discussion and vote on a possible merger with another club but the reality is that we still need a sufficient number of people around the table to get things done, irrespective of whether we merge or not. The idea of merging (in some way, shape or form) has been floated within the committee for a short while but given the workload of those involved, we were not really sure how to deal with it, preferring instead to focus on the AGM and attracting new mmbers onto the committee. However, the reality is that a merger is something that needs to be discussed with members and thats what we will do on Tuesday. We have placed in the agenda a 45 minute slot for discussing the future direction of the club at the end of which a vote shall be taken on whether it is appropriate to pursue. If it is, we shall move that the incoming committee puts the nuts and bolts of a merger together and presents it back to members at an SGM at a later date. If you wish to vote on this, make sure you some along on Tuesday
