Cyclocross 22-11-14

Group of Wheelers had a brilliant Saturday morning blast on cross and mountain bikes.

Round Baron's Haugh and Dalzell Estate, then followed by a loop round the Strathclyde park CX course. Finished up long the side if the Calder and back to Dalzell Estate.

Have to be careful in Dalzell estate when cycling or running up and down stairs as the wood is very greasy, all riders coped well.

Conditions were good if a little slippy under wheel, due to leaves and the overnight rain. This meant for some exciting moments and almost a trip into the drink at one point.

Member forms

New, Law Wheelers now has an online membership form available! Look in the navigation bar for the link.

Can all members submit one of these once they've paid their membership fees. All the data is securely stored and in no way publicly accessible. Your information won't be shared with any 3rd party under any circumstances.

Have also asked for some emergency contact details, and these will be used in the event of, erm, an emergency :)

AGM 2014

Thanks to all who attended the AGM
on 17/11/2014. Particular thanks to all who took up posts to help maintain the running of Law Wheelers. 

George will be preparing the minutes when he has sufficient time and we will get them posted on the web site in due course.

Some points to mention. 

Colin is obviously taking up administration of the web site and we will try to involve this more. Colin is also membership Secretary. 
Fees for next year can paid any time. Jon mentioned an increase in use of online payment last year and this was a great help in management.  
Jon is continuing as treasurer and details of account are available from him. There is no increase in fee (£10) but we are suggesting £5 for juniors or youths.

Christmas lunch is being planned for 6th. December @ 12:30 (Last Shift) with an option to cycle up from Newman's @ 10am. 

The prizegiving is being postponed til New Year to give chance get trophies back and engraved.  Please return these as previously requested.

Hopefully that covers details which are relevant at present until we have AGM minutes. 

Robert (Secretary).
