As Southern Vets’ newly-elected President (second time around!), I’m posting to thank our 2014 Committee and Officials for their generous service to our Club this year and to welcome our 2015 Committee, especially the new members – well done for standing up! My aim is for us all to strive together for a better and better Club.
Our Committee is in the process of handing-over duties where required and will meet very soon for the first time. Handicapper Geoff Hillman is seeking nominations for the Club Calendar sub-Committee – all members are welcome. Web page posts and updates will occur as always, but over the next week or so the changed Committee contacts etc will gradually appear.
Ride well, Ride safe.

The club website does not cater for a forum where members can ask questions or engage in dialogue with each other. For this purpose, Pat O’Kane has set up a club Facebook group. To view the club Facebook page simply use the link provided on the website but you will need to first register on Facebook (its simple and free, just click on the link and follow instructions). To join the group you need to be a club member and send a request to Pat via the page. Some recent interesting posts on the page include a video of Wednesday night’s crit shot by Georg Thierry and an invite from Stafford Scott to join him in the Tour of New Zealand.
