Practice Day Wonthaggi
Next practice day is to be held Sunday 10th February these practice days will be subject to the water from our Dam being available, As water restrictions now apply across the state we no longer can use Local water supplies, over previous years practice days have been cancelled because of wet conditions, fire bans never because of lack of water.
I have just returned from holidays over the festive season and can now confirm that I am becoming a QLD'er as of the 12 Feb and will be based in Brisbane!
Just before Xmas I was given an opportunity to move up to QLD and become National account manager for HB Fuller, and we negotiated until today for all pieces to come into place.
The decision to move up north was not an easy one, as growing up around Victoria and my involvement in the DMCC club has been very rewarding - with a large emphasis placed on the friendships I have gained over recent years. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support, friendship and trust over the last few years when I've been learning from each of you. You all have contributed to where I'm heading in life... which is definitely filled with possibilities!
The first General meeting is scheduled to be on the 1st Feb and will be my last as a committee member, and MX Chairman - it would be a great opportunity at this meeting to ask for volunteers to fill the position also.
If anyone has the time and the interest to go along to MV MX meetings, be Gippsland Centre delegate and help run club practice days - it would be great to pass the baton on at this meeting.
My sincere apologies to the club for not being on hand to see the intended MX club champs evolve into a fun and action packed family day - just like we have all seen with the off-road club champs over the past few seasons. I hope the committee and MX committee can muster up the individuals and the energy to make it all happen, and I really wish big things for the club.
Good luck for 2007 and I hope to see you all again very soon.
(PS: Feel free to drop me a line if holidaying or riding in the QLD area)
