President's Corner

Doug Latornell


Summer is finally here and with it comes long hours of daylight for long rides, temperatures warm enough to chase away the memories of riding bundled up in fleece, and the wonderful fitness that come from having lots of kilometers in your legs. Plenty of kilometers we have! As a club we have ridden 156,000 kilometers of events up to the middle of July, and the total keeps going up every week.

Even though we are in the midst of the cycling season I have to ask you to start thinking ahead to October and the Annual General Meeting. The AGM will again be held October 1st at Bedford House in Fort Langley. More details about the event will appear in the next newsletter. Details of any resolutions to be considered at the AGM will also be published in that newsletter. Its press date is August 31st.

What you need to think about now are the elections for next year's executive. If you are interested in getting involved in the running of the club at the executive level (President, Vice-President, Secretary, or Treasurer) please contact me or one of the other executive members for information about the positions and so that we can pass your name on to the Nomination Committee. Likewise, if you're interested in one of the other jobs listed on the left, let us know. Our club depends on people volunteering to do the jobs that need to be done. The more we can spread the work around from year to year, the less risk there is of "volunteer burn-out".
