PRESIDENT’S AWARDS

Sue Libbis

Steven Waterman

David Martin

This year the President has chosen to give the President’s Awards to those three outstanding individuals.

Sue has been a tieless contributor to the support network of the Club, from a major contribution as Club secretary at our committee meetings to particularly  the facilitating of our new members “meet & greet”. Sue has developed as a very senior executive member of our Club, and I’m sure we will benefit from this for many years to come.

Steven was the driving energy behind the evolution of our current website. He facilitated and hosted at his home all the meetings required to get  all the heads together. He and Kerrie sourced the company that developed the site for us and in so doing we gained the services of the most reliable and obliging  Jason Metcalf of Gecko Media.

Dave – Thanks to Dave and his dedication to creating a safe and enjoyable environment in which to cycle, we now have a myriad of ride options that the  members can partake of. All endorsed Club rides are now listed on our website with maps, profiles and descriptions.  Thanks to Dave we also now have a riding destination program up to month in advance.

CERTIFICATES OF APPRECIATION
