At the Club's AGM, it was agreed to relocate the club room to the new £4.5m Hog Hill cycling circuit. No date has yet been set for the change as yet. Club subs for seniors, unchanged for the last few years have been raised to £35 to cover the increase in room changes from our current location, however this change presents some exciting new possibilities for club nights and it was felt to be well worth the extra expenditure.
Notice is given that the 2008 Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday 1st November at the Club Country Headquarters, North Hall Road, Ugley starting at 2.30pm. Any items for the Agenda should be handed to the General Secretary by Wednesday 15th October 2008.
Following on from our successful event last year, this year we are running two "Come Try It" events for newcomers.
The first, on 6th May (19:15) is 5 miles (8km) or once round the circuit we use for our usual evening '10' series.
The second event will be on 8th July (19:30) and you have the choice of doing either one lap (5 mile, 8km) or two laps (10 miles, 1.6km) if you're feeling keen.
