surveyUs volunteers at the NHCC want to make it a better, and even more fabulous club for 2015. Can you take about 5 minutes to fill out just 6 shrimpy questions before the upcoming Annual General Meeting?

Just 3 weeks away! 2014 Year-end Social & Annual Meeting

The Year-end Social and Annual Meeting is approaching in just 3 weeks on Wednesday November 26th, 2014. It’s a highlight of our year and always lots of fun. The menu has been selected, and planning is underway. It’s primarily a social event, with a little boring biz sandwiched in the middle.

The Boring Biz Portion:

2015 Director Nominations: We will be electing directors for 2015 3-year term vacancies. We are pleased to announce three nominees including Maria Garrett, Debbie Robertson, and Anita Macklin. Also, we anticipate approving Jim Berg’s recent appointment to the Board at the Annual Meeting.

Amendment to NHCC Bylaw 7.1.1
The NHCC has grown significantly since it’s inception and currently has 118 members. In response to this growth, a proposal will be presented to amend our Bylaws, from a fixed number (5) to a range of of 5-7 directors. Not all vacancies will be filled at all times.

RSVP, IMPORTANT: Prepayment is essential if you plan to attend, since we need to confirm numbers for dinner. The deadline for submitting payment is November 20th. By the way, guests, family, and friends are most welcome. They too will also be eligible to purchase a 2015 Membership for the special price of $35 that evening.

Sunday Nov. 16: Hike at 12 noon

We’ll be hiking on trails southwest of Warkworth. It’ll be fairly hilly with a mix of forest and fields. Be sure to bring fluids and a snack.

Since it’s a bit of a drive it may be a good idea to car pool. Port Hope folks can meet at Gilmer’s Home Hardware and leave there at 11:15 to swing by the 45/401 car pool lot to meet up with anyone leaving from Cobourg at 11:30. Please let us know if you are coming and whether you’re interested in sharing a ride, and we’ll give you the address and directions. nhcycling2010@gmail.com

Date: Sunday, November 16th
Time: 12:00 (noon)
Distance: approximately 12km
Leader: Maria Garrett
