Pre dinner drinks are from 6.15 pm with guests being seated for dinner at 7.15pm.

Guest speaker for the evening is Trevor Shailer – deputy chef de mission for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Special Awards that will be presented include the following

Jim Mason Cup There are many people involved in Bike Manawatu who are not members of the club as such but contribute to the club in various ways either because they are passionate about cycling or have children or family members involved in cycling.And it is important that we recognise and acknowledge the support and contribution of these people. This club wouldn’t be where it is today without the volunteers that give up their time to stand on the side of a road as a marshall, give their input into organising events, taking photos for the website or helping at registration or start/finish lines.

HUGHES FAMILY TROPHY is awarded to the Best All Round Club Member, not judged only on cycling abilities but also for commitment and contribution to helping the club in other areas.

Black Memorial trophy is awarded to the club rider for his attitude towards the club, racing performance and promoting the sport.  Last year the award went to John Stewart.

Nominations are now open and will close on Monday18th August at 3pm.
