2014 Annual General Meeting

Our PCCCT AGM was held on Tuesday night, December 10, 2014. John McGuire was again appointed Patron while our office bearers were all returned unopposed: Barry Ling: President; John Lucas: VP; Neville Sweetman: VP; Gerard Leary: Treasurer;
Rick Ferguson: Secretary, Publicity Officer and Public Officer and Keith Lancaster: Handicapper. Malcolm Nutting and Shane Hanson returned as Rod Viney was elected unopposed to be our three ‘ordinary’ committee members. The club thanks out-going member Steve Powell for his contribution over the past two years.

Our 2015 registrations and race fees will be kept identical to this year – season registration: $40; race fee $5; Half Marathon, 25km Ironman and 16.5km King of the Mountains race fee is $10 while the Marathon and Feature race fee for 2014 remains as $20. Nominated Time Membership is $10 per year. There is no fee per race.

It was decided to introduce an early bird prize as an incentive to encourage members to complete their registration and submit it before race day. A draws will be done at our first race briefing.

Discussions were had regarding race venues, notably Sisters Beach, Cooee and Tullah as well as more cross country type layouts. Many factors go in to making up the programme each year and choosing suitable courses. Carparking, toilet facilities and safety are all concerns – as well as our race sponsors’ wishes regarding race location. The committee attempts to present the best possible programme each year. Safe, varied with longer races spread out, a good mix of Coastal venues and where possible avoiding other major running events in Tasmania.

Barry Ling called for volunteers for Devonport Triathlon marshals on Feb 21, 2015. They do sponsor one of our races so we encourage anyone to help out. You can contact Barry on 0408 141 122.
