HCC AGM – Big News!

Quiz! Which photo taken at our AGM? Could have been the Hamilton Place shot but you didn’t show up! Anyway the 5 person executive gathered at Rob Kuruc’s Attic! After some great pizza thanks to Rob we went through the usual reports and then addressed to changes to the Constitution! The big change is to categories. Henceforth Seniors will extend from 18-39 and Masters from 40-100+! The latter will be handicapped .6 seconds per km x age over 40. We also decided to look into a means of offering members a broader spectrum of rides beyond just road racing. More anon!

sorry about the sideways photo kinda nice Rob having an HCC plaque on the Attic wall!
