Our new editor, Nicky, has done a great job of compiling her first club newsletter of the 2010-11 season - sure to be the first of many.
It's membership renewal time again. The club's membership year runs from 1 August to 31 July. For rider and support combinations, the family membership rate is a great deal at $35. You can find a renewal form on our resources page.
If you've ever wondered how the club's awards are assessed, this newletter takes the mystery out of it, and if you've a hankering to get yourself in the running, this information will help you plan your competitive year, just as soon as we have the calendar finalised, of course.
On that topic, while the ride calendar still looks a little sparse, it's mainly because we have still to finalise available dates with our venue owners and event organisers. We expect to firm things up at the next committee meeting in early August.
However, the first ride of the season is now booked in. Pukemarama is another new venue for the club, but easy terrain similar to Waitarere (and probably similar to our Foxton champs venue, Bulls, and Manakau Farm) - fast and flat - just what's needed for a start of season ride as you're still working up to competitive fitness.
So, if you haven't started already, perhaps it's time to get a few winter training rides in whenever you can find a gap in the weather - just over 10 weeks to go ;-)
