"Lonestar" as a Bike Manawatu sponsor has been a great place for members to hideaway as a group on the last Friday of every month and spend some social time together.
The warmth, atmosphere and hospitality of the Lonestar has been welcoming for which we thank them. The club Happy Hour was designed to help create a club culture amongst young and mature cyclists versus the contrast of a cold club rooms. The concept seems to be catching on for a small number of members who are regulars. We would love to see more of the many great characters we have in our club as we build the culture of uniting together to become a great club.
Since Christine Christie stepped down as club secretary recently the Bike Manawatu board appropriately employed a third party to manage the task of employing a new Club secretary. Recruitment agency "Adecco" have been advertising the role on seek and various other avenues and will soon be closing off their applications. For those who have applied or are considering forwarding an application we wish you well.
To Catriona and Tom Pirie who have taken the role on in the interim, the board would like to acknowledge the commitment and excellent job Catriona and Tom are doing.
