The news from last night’s OCTC AGM

Hi Piranhas,

The club held its annual general meeting last night and this is an update.

An overarching entity, the Orange Cycle and Triathlon Club (OCTC) was formalised. An explanation was distributed earlier in the month and can be found here:

This puts us in line with our articles of association. This group will be led by:

President: Mitch Bland
Vice President: Dave Hunter
Secretary: Lea Dally
Treasurer: Megan Goodwin
Committee Members: Cas Ingham, Dave Warburton, Sue Bonar

The OCTC then delegates cycle and triathlon to two sub committees. These sub committees then have authority to run events for the two sports.

Your triathlon committee for season 17/18 is:

President: Dave Hunter
Vice President: Kim Dale
Treasurer: Megan Goodwin
Secretary: Cas Ingham
Communications Manager: Vacant
Event Co Ordinator: Mick Lockyer
Race Director: Phil Tudor

A big thank you to Matt Dean, Brian Sharp, Bridgitte and Jake Evans, Julie Middleton and Ali Dermody who wished to step down this season – we know we will still see them and not be lost to the club!

Congratulations to the new committee and we welcome the return of Cas Ingham and Phil Tudor. Megan Goodwin does great work for the club and terrific to see her return as Treasurer. Congratulations to Kim Dale who steps into the VP role. We still require a Comms Manager and we’ll work on that gap in the next two weeks. Let us know at octc@octc.org.au if you’re interested and you’d like more info.
Finally a huge shout out to Mick Lockyer for his three years as President. His commercial acumen and commitment has done great things for the club, and along with Megan this includes a strong financial position. One highlight was his single mindedness to represent the club and work with Council and Tri NSW to bring the Club Champs to Orange in March this year. On behalf of the club, thank you Mick and great to have your skills still on the committee. His role this year will focus on the events of the Junior weekend, Club Champs and the shed at Gosling.

Standing on the shoulders of giants,
Dave Hunter
