Notice of GFW Annual General Meeting – Saturday, November 9

We’ve done it again and although it is almost over, this has been another outstanding cycling season with excellent weather, our reliable membership stepping up to host regular rides and more than a few creative and amazing events.  We’ll wrap it up for 2019 with our AGM, a little bit of business and then a feast and gathering among good friends to celebrate.

Important Details

  • Date:  Saturday November 9th
  • Time:  5:00 p.m.
  • Location: Barb and John’s
  • Dinner to be catered: $10/person, bring your own dishes, cutlery, beverage (and spouses if they’d like to join us!)

Membership and Waiver Forms

Membership and waiver forms for the 2020 season will be available for you to complete.  If you prefer, print your own updated forms from our member section.

Nominations for Executive Positions

There is one executive position to be filled for next season:

2) Treasurer (2-year term)

Any club member may apply for this position, duties of which are outlined in the By-Laws.  However, you are required to have another club member nominate you and another member second the nomination.  

If you wish to be considered for this position, please send a confidential email to the club executive at ganaraskafreewheelers@gmail.com to express your interest on or before Thursday October 30, 2019. Please include the names of your nominator and seconder. 

Agenda Items

As this has been such a wonderful incident free season, we do not have a great deal of business to conduct at this AGM. We will send out an agenda closer to the date. If you have items you would like to propose we add, please email the executive by Thursday, October 30 at ganaraskafreewheelers@gmail.com

A couple of things to consider and be ready to act upon are:

  • Safety Reminder Email. Please re-read the safety reminder email sent on September 26/19.
  • Incorporation – Pros & Cons. One of the things we are going to ask you to consider is whether or not we want or need to incorporate.  We will do a brief recap of the pros and cons and costs of the decision and get a general consensus on whether to pursue incorporation further.

Looking forward to celebrating a wonderful 2019 cycling season with you.

    Be sure to check out the GFW Facebook page if you would like to participate in a pre-AGM mountain bike ride in the Northumberland Forest. The ride will commence at the Beagle Club Trailhead at a time to be determined by the group (using Facebook), and it will cater to all levels of expertise!
