If you feel that you want to have a say in the running of the club, ordinary members are entitled and welcome to come along to the AWOC Committee meetings. These take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 8pm at various venues. Feel free to come along and have your input into the running of our club.
As you would appreciate, running a club and activities takes a lot of voluntary effort. We are always after volunteers to assist with committee activities, course design, preparation and setting up and administrative tasks. The work can be good fun and a great learning experience. There will always be experienced members to turn to for advice and volunteers will be trained for the various roles. Let the club know if you are able to help and in what particular activities you are interested.
Summer Street and Park O Series
The series is coming to a conclusion with just two events to be conducted. The winners of the series is determined from the best of five events at the pre and post Christmas events. Peter Mousley will win the long course and Cathy McNab either the middle or short. One of the latter is yet to be determined. Matt Flower and Rick Armstrong are fighting out the MTBO course.
Presentations will be made to the winners at the conclusion of the event on the Linc on 21 March. There will be a sausage sizzle to accompany the presentations so please plan to stick around for a while.
Event starts are between 5.30pm and 6pm. Cost of entry: $5 per map.
First Aid Training
In an effort to encourage to have more members with First Aid training the club is offering a grant of $100 to any member who wishes to obtain or update a First Aid certificate. Contact Rick if you are interested.
Fabrizio is organising running singlets which recognize the role AWOC played in founding and organizing the Nail Can Hill run for 30 plus years. If you need a new singlet or are participating in the NCHR these would be ideal. For more details Click Here.
New Club Competition Clothing
A new AWOC cycling top and bib shorts are available. If you would like to purchase the new uniform please contact Fabrizio. Full details are here.
The club has now taken possession of a defibrillator, which must be taken to all events, as it could be a lifesaver in an emergency. The equipment is very simple to use. You take it from the container, press a button to turn it on and it voice prompts you on what steps to follow.
Course Setters Required
The club is seeking course setters for all the Albury events in the upcoming Interclub competition. Mentoring and coaching are available if you are interested, but lack the necessary experience. See the events calendar on the Events page for details. Please contact Rick at email@example.com if you can assist.
