Club AGM Wednesday 28th of November 7.30pm @ BMSC

Hello all,

It’s that time of year again when the weather turns sour that we decide to host our AGM.  It gives you an excuse to be out of the rain and come and see what’s been happening in your club. It kicks off at 7.30pm at the Bearsden Milngavie Sports Club bar area upstairs.

 

What is the purpose of an AGM you ask?

  • It’s to allow club members to hear/see reports from the committee on the achievements and work of the club over the year.
  • For members to elect the committee for next year.
  • If required, to make changes to the club constitution.

 

It’s to give you, the paying club members an insight to what’s been going on and to have your say about what happens in the future.  It’s a very worthwhile event and it normally lasts the length of a summers evening club ride.  There will be refreshments, some snacks and a wee prize draw for the attendees.

It’s not mandatory attendance but it’s only one evening out of the year. As it’s on a Wednesday night which is our busiest evenings for club rides, I’m assuming we’ll be filled to capacity (hopefully).  There’s normally a bunch who head out earlier that evening for a club ride and finish at the AGM, so keep an eye on social media posts nearer the time for those updates.

Looking forward to seeing you then.

Tina’s 40th Birthday / GMBC Lake District Weekend 19th-21st Oct

Hello folks,

Tina posted on Facebook a few weeks back looking for a show of hands for this trip. Some folk have confirmed and some are a maybe for now, the good new is; we have enough to officially call it a party weekend!  This post is for the details of accommodation, prices and how to pay. We have provisionally booked the hostel for the Friday, Saturday & Sunday night, but it’s only being held for a limited time.

We need you to confirm how may nights you’ll be staying and payment by Monday 1st October – please no later!

Accommodation – Windermere Youth Hostel, single gender shared dorms – see here for more info https://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-windermere

Costs – Friday £27, Saturday £27, Sunday £12 (this includes a £9 discount per person as the club has a YHA membership). So, £54 if staying Fri/Sat, £66 if staying all 3 nights.

Riding – There will be different rides to suit all levels and abilities. More on this nearer the time, but it’ll be one hell of a great weekend…Tina has guaranteed it or your money back!*

How to book – fill in this form:

https://goo.gl/forms/W2FFMrEuyqQEbJm53

How to pay – To make this as simple as possible for everyone, we have decided to not use Webcollect and ask you to pay directly into the club bank account.  It’s the same account number and sort code you would have paid your membership fee to but here it is again.

Account # – 00875203, Sort Code – 80-07-24.  Please use Tina40 as the reference so we can cross reference the payment.

Remember – payment no later that Monday 1st October please – we need to pay the hostel in full shortly after this date.  Any payments or bookings after this date, will need to be done directly with the hostel and you may not be eligible for the £9 discount from the YHA Club Membership, so get booked up ASAP!

I’ll copy this link to Facebook so we don’t miss anyone out. Enjoy your trip!

*refund applications are filed in the bin 😉

  • Reservations will be taken via an online sign up form, on a first come first served basis.  The link to the reservation form will be published on the website within the next week.
  • A few weeks after the reservations are taken we’ll collect payments via the WebCollect site and you’ll be able to make your menu selections.
  • If you don’t pay for your place by the deadline (date TBC, which will be stated clearly on the sign up form) it will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
  • If you need to cancel your place after you’ve paid for it and we can fill your place with someone from the waiting list then you’ll get your money back.  If we don’t have anyone to take your place then it will depend on Bibi’s cancellation policy.
