Hi all


Eureka held the 45th AGM on Tuesday night at the Eastwood Leisure Complex.  With 40 members eligible to vote,  those members present (with a quorum of 8 members attending Jenny, Geoff, Gary, James, Roch, Blake, Ian, Monica) – 6 apologies from Peter, Rod, Tseegi, Mark, Ken and Dale ) unanimously elected the  2019-20 Executive: 
 
President – Ian Chennell; Vice President – James Gray; Secretary – Blake Gordon; Treasurer – Monica Dickson

General Business:

1 New club running tops: Blake reported that 25 members have received their “EU Flag with splash of orange” top. Those members that have volunteered to help at events, served as officers, run or organised events, controlled other clubs events or served as officers should get their top from Blake. 

2 Gary Buchan volunteered to work on the webpage and serve as Assistant Treasurer. Thanks Gary.

3 MapRun has had several successful runs/walks/cycles around 7 different venues. Most of those maps are still available for your fun. Just download the app MapRun and check the local Ballarat venues. Need to know more – contact Ian Chennell.

4 Upcoming Vic MTBO Series #4 event on 19th May (day after the election). Mark and Blake have been active setting and checking locations in Creswick Forest. The start is at the RACV Goldfields Resort on the outskirts of Creswick from 10am to 11.30am.
