2010 AGM update. Meeting held 5th December 2010.
The 2010 AGM saw a few constitutional changes, some new officers and a fine lunch.
The changes to the constitution were all passed as described in the pre meeting information. The election of Officers saw Leanne Murrays resignation from the committee, Stu Hutchings stepping down as President and Harry Keys stepping down as Club Captain.
Unofficially (as I didnt take notes) the new committee looks like:
Patron Rod MacFarlane
President Marty Staines
Secretary Maggie McCaughan
Treasurer Marion Fournier
Club Captain Jim Norris
Booking Vicki Moss
General Harry Keys
Thanks were given to Leannes work as Booking Officer and to Stus contribution as President.
Other points to note included the increase in Lodge night fees due to GST. These have resulted in generally $1 increases. In addition the subs have also been increased. Both of these increases are GST only (rounded up to the nearest dollar).
More details to follow once the minutes have been compiled.
Each year there are a series of 3 club races held on Whakapapa. These are open to clubs on the mountain and they are the Christiana Derby (Christiana Ski Club), Haensli Cup (Ruapehu Ski Club) and the Ngauruhoe Cup (Ngauruhoe Ski Club).
These races are team races with categories for Junior, Senior and Masters. The teams consist of 5 members, at least one female, with the best 4 times contributing to the result.
These races are usually run in the Valley and each team member gets one run. The best part is the Prize Giving/Social held at the respective club after the lifts close (heaps of food, refreshments and spot prizes).
The races are on Saturday 7th August, Saturday 21st August and Saturday 4th September. These races are also great practise for the Club Championships on Sat 25th September.
