Branch President’s Annual Report 2014
Where did last year go, I suppose listings things chronologically would help me remember.
January. We held our well attended Branch AGM where all of the previous years committee stood
again for election in their existing roles and were subsequently re-elected.
February. The Ulverstone Bike Show….The less said about that the better.
March. Our now annual Poker Run and the most successful to date with exactly 100 riders taking
part and raising the fantastic total of $4935 for Camp Quality.
April. Plenty of riding especially with the introduction of the rides now taking place every
May. Many of our branch members getting exited with 39 of us heading for the national AGM at
June. Lots of us just returning from the AGM ; Then a quick rethink when we found out almost
accidently that Devonport RSL had cancelled their Christmas in July without telling us.
July. Some quick decisions were made by the committee when we realised that it was too late to get
our contingent in somewhere else for Christmas in July so we decided to do it ourselves with Ben
securing the Ulverstone Bowls Club and the band and the rest of us doing what was required to make it
a brilliant night, we even made a modest profit for the first time ever.
August. Winter rides with some amazing turn outs.
September. Ben calls it a day as Webmaster and Ride Coordinator to enjoy his retirement and to be
able to travel at will without lugging around all the necessaries.
Shayne Robertson takes on the role of Webmaster and Peter Carne as Ride Coordinator.
October. Summer is on the way so again plenty of riding.
Shayne gets our new website up and running.
November. One of our main social gatherings of the year at Brian and Jill’s barbeque always a great
night with plenty of fun and tall stories.
Jill and Margaret organized the Christmas Hamper to raffle at the counter meal and raised $161.40.
December. Last few rides this year then Christmas again and recharge for next year.
Now I know where it went and what a year it was.
Our monthly counter meals were well attended and as many of the raffle prizes were donated this
helped towards raising the necessary funds to keep our branch running and make our annual $500
donation to UCAF and I will have to mention again Margaret and Jill’s supper Hamper effort.
My thanks to the Committee and all the volunteers at various events who are to numerous to mention
individually also the Ride Captains, T.E.C. and all those who donated gold coins.
Please Note our branch AGM will be after the counter meal at the Forth Pub on the 24th of February so
come along and help elect your 2015 committee.
President North West coast Branch.
Branch President’s Annual Report 2013
Having nearly completed my first year as President, I would like to say what an eventful year it was.
Despite the many cancelled rides and subsequently the loss of gold coin donations we still managed to almost break even financially.
We successfully organised several events, beginning with our first Poker Run that was open to all and with over 100 people participating managing to raise $3700.00 for Camp Quality.
Next we had our Xmas in July at the Devonport RSL club, which was organised by Peter Carne and is always a great night.
Then it was our turn to host the Pink Ribbon Ride BBQ, where we managed to break the record raising a fantastic $2312.00 for The Cancer Council.
We finished the year with our Christmas BBQ at Jill and Brians’, where they spared no effort with their hospitality. So thanks yet again.
In between all this we had many excellent rides and 10 of our members completed a Senior First Aid course which had a focus on Motorcycle related injuries.
Peter and Hilaire Carne designed and organised our own branch shirts, which had an uptake of over 50 so far. Another great effort.
Our monthly counter meals at the Forth pub were well attended, with the raffle being our biggest fund raiser for club expenses and most of the prizes were donated. Once again thank you Jill and Margaret for co-ordinating the Christmas Hamper.
I would like to thank the committee for their unselfish work throughout the year, all the volunteers at various functions, the ride Captains and T.E.C, all those selling raffle tickets and donating prizes who are too numerous to mention individually and Eileen for a much appreciated hand with the paperwork.
Lastly I would like to welcome our new members who joined this year and hope you enjoy being part of our group.
Please note our Branch AGM will be held after the counter meal at the Forth pub on the 28th of January, come along and elect your 2014 committee.
President North West Coast Branch.
