Moreland BUG AGM: 24 October 2013

The upcoming Annual General Meeting is this Thursday, the 24th of October 2013, at the Edinburgh Castle Hotel (681 Sydney Road, Brunswick).
This year we are going to split the meeting in two parts. The first part deals with the ordinary business and in the second part we will have a guest speaker. Feel free to come to either both parts or just the one of your choosing. Finger-food will be provided.
Here is the Agenda for the evening: 

Part 1 – Ordinary Business (7 -7.30 pm)

  1. Welcome
  2. Apologies
  3. Convenor’s Report
  4. Treasurer’s Report
  5. Confirmation of AGM 2012 minutes
  6. Election of the new Committee of Management
– Break – 

Part 2 – Guest Speaker Paul McKay on Cycling from Brunswick to Coburg (7.45 pm)

Paul will tell us of his epic week long pedal from Brunswick to Coburg.  He will bring along his full size folding Montague and the worlds biggest pannier that he used – the Arkel-tt84 (as in 84 liters – that’s more the twice the puny 40 liters of an Ortlieb back roller).  You’ll meet characters such as Caroline of Brunswick, Alfred of Saxe Coburg (‘Affie’ to his mates) and Queen Adelaide and learn how German the Royal Family of the House of Coburg-Saxe and Gotha is (renamed Windsor after the Great War).  And you will learn how it was that Coburg and Brunswick got their names and how King Edward VII was 31/32ths German.  Oh and you might have guessed that there was no Upfield Bikeway.
