2016 Eureka Presentation Night

2016 Eureka Presentation Night

Club Stalwarts Honoured

The Eureka Veterans Cycling Club held their 2016 Presentation Night at Seymours On Lydiard during December.
The private function was well attended and saw Greg Ley receive his Club Champion trophy and sash.

Tony Mirabella was announced as the winner of the Club Aggregate.  Tony won eight races during the season.
Peter Livitsanis and Bob Morley were second and third respectively in the aggregate.

Peter Livitsanis also took home the Steelsmith Trophy.  Adam Smith at Steelsmith Engineering has proudly presented this trophy each year.
The encouragement award recognises the efforts of the recipient throughout the year.

A highlight of the night was the awarding of Life Membership to Lois and Bill Goldfinch.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of many sporting clubs – the Eureka Veterans Cycling Club is fortunate to have so many members who perform many duties which enable the club to function effectively.  Lois and Bill have been active volunteers at Eureka since the club was formed in 2009.
Lois and Bill have a great passion for cycling and often volunteer for other Veterans clubs major cycling races.

The Eureka Veterans Cycling Club thanks all the volunteers, sponsors and members for making 2016 a successful year.

The 2017 racing season commences on Sunday 29th January.

Election of new committee for 2016

2016 AGM

The 2016 Annual General Meeting was held after the race day presentations on Sunday 31st January.

All Committee positions were declared vacant.  The Handicapper role was also declared vacant.

Terry Collie has stepped down from the President role which he held for 3 years.
We thank Terry for going above and beyond what would normally be expected of a Club President.
Terry will continue with the “Race Permits” role.

Elaine Parker has stepped down from the Treasurer role which she held for 4 years.
Elaine has turned the Club’s finances around and achieved many goals that she set herself.  Financially we are in a very good position due to Elaine’s skill and passion.  Thank you to Elaine for your marvellous efforts!
Keep an eye out on the sidelines when racing to see Elaine cheering everyone on.

John Faulkner and John Creek have stepped down from their committee roles.
John F has taken on the role of Time Keeper with the VVCC.  John will be very busy with Mylaps throughout the year.  We hope to see him get a race or two in over the course of the year.
John C plans to go camping a lot this year.  John will help Mal Rock out with organising the marshal roster from time to time.  He hopes to race whenever he isn’t on holidays…
Thank you to both Johns, we wish you both well.

Graeme Parker has stepped down from the role of Handicapper which he has performed over the past few years.
A very big thank you to Graeme for assisting riders in returning to form by kind handicaps.  Also, for helping some riders move up the ranks by encouraging and challenging them.  Also, for doing a consistently fantastic job in levelling the playing field.  During Graeme’s tenure, many handicap races have seen the entire field cross the finish line within a 3 minute spread.
Thanks again Graeme, and we hope you get to race throughout the year.
