Vote <1> Goose

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, May 22, 2007 with 4 comments
I was interested as usual to see how many of the speedy geese training group (ie us), and how many very good friends of the geese, became members of the new committee to run Veterans Athletics in the ACT for the next twelve months.

There was a very good turnout of Vets at the AGM. Although, only about four members of our training group were there.

Nevertheless, on the committee we are well represented again!

Geese: (ie those with their names on my current roll)
President Chris Lang
Secretary Rod Lynch
Committee Roger Pilkington, Geoff Sims

Very good friends of the Geese (ie have run with us in the past)
Committee Peter Cullen, Marion Blake

Potential Geese (ie haven't run with us but could! Any time, you're welcome!)
Vice President Rosemary Parker
Committee Craig Wisdom, Jack Thackray

Non-geese (ie would steer clear of us) - no-one!

There is however a vacancy for Treasurer which will have to filled within the next month. So if you (a) have the motivation and heart for the job, and (b) have the capacity and ability to fulfil the functions of the job, please apply now to a committee member! Finances have been left in an excellent state by Will Foster, but it will still need a big commitment and some hard work by whoever takes it on.

I deflected several (well meaning) requests to rejoin the committee, as my sub-committee role is more important to the club, and my time is taken up coaching anyway.

How we trained
Last night saw Adam, Alan, Amanda, Ewen, Geoff B, me, Helen, Katie, Ken, Maria, Mick C, Ruth and Sonia run ten intervals of 40 seconds each two minutes on a darkish track through the Parliament House gardens.

  1. Congrats to Chris. Did he get up on his proposal for an ACT Vets group excursion to 6'?

  2. Fully funded of course!

  3. If not, will you be willing to take on the Treasurer role?

  4. Who needs a Treasurer? As long as Will signed plenty of blank cheques!
