This report covers two meetings held on 7 Dec 2011 and 11 Jan 2012. There was little new raised at either meeting in that the majority of the discussions that took place centered on preparations and arrangements for the forthcoming Pukekohe February Classic Festival. Most items were totally routine but included discussions and resolutions on South Island and overseas entrants, the overhead cam display, sponsors and displays, merchandise, BBQ and meal arrangements, site allocations and vehicle access. It was determined that members providing machines for other people to enter and ride should also be provided with vehicle stickers should they need them.

The few items of a more general nature included candidates for the Young Riders Scholarship, Megaphone reports, financial and legal reports, technical reports, radio maintenance, sidecar entry fees and the possibility of a new 250 class. Also discussed was the need to cancel our (NZCMRR) involvement at the proposed January combined car/bike meeting at Hampton Downs. This came about due an unresolved MNZ ruling stipulating that an air fence (bags) be positioned along a section of the main straight. This would prove impossible for cars. And there was discussion re the possibility for a reciprocal Barry Sheene meeting to be held in conjunction with our next Labour Weekend meeting at Hampton Downs. Developments for this are under review. And finally there was discussion on creating special Life Member membership cards. Currently Life Members get a replacement membership card issued each year which seems a bit unnecessary.

Due to the fact that there was a last minute shift from the usual Wednesday night to Monday night, 3 October, and that some members had traveled overseas, the committee only just made a quorum of eight members with Peter Lodge in the chair. Phil Harrington has been approached to work with Rhys Jones to put together a shed/personal profile type presentation on individual members for publication in the Megaphone.
