The SMC would like to congratulate Natalia Bognor on winning the discount ride entry at the Buchan ride. This entitles Natalia to enter into another Victorian endurance ride with a $25 discount off the entry fee.
This prize is drawn from all riders who enter the endurance ride at an event - successful or unsuccessful.
The Discount Entry draw will be done at the Great Western ride giving our members another opportunity to win a discounted entry fee for their next ride.
The SMC would like to advise members that we have been undertaking a review of our existing bank accounts to achieve some efficiencies and cost savings. We have reduced the number of bank accounts by combing some and closing out others that were not utilised on a regular basis. This rationalisation will reduce the workload for our treasurer and will also result in a cheaper cost for the audit process as less accounts will require auditing.
The major changes that affect members is that the Logbook and Membership accounts have been combined into a single account and the Merchandise account has been closed. The impact for members is that if you have either of these accounts set up within your Internet banking or Banking App these will need to be changed.
All the VERA Forms that specify the bank account details for member services have now been updated and are available for download from the VERA website.
If you have any questions in regard to this change please contact our Treasurer, Kerrie Gabb. Contact details for Kerrie are on the website or you post a question here.
Our VERA Webmaster is currently updating the Results section of the website. The first item completed is the Hall of Fame section (located under the Members menu), which lists our life members and our Living Legend. Please check out the great job that Mark has done with this web page.
More updates will be forthcoming as he works through making sure we have the correct information available for display.
The VERA SMC is looking for people who are interested in nominating for the VERA State team to compete at the 2019 Tom Quilty event in Queensland. Attached is the Tom Quilty Gold Cup State Team policy outlining the requirements for nominating and the responsibilities of being considered as a part of the team. As yet, a determination has not been made as to how many Victorian teams that will be entered as this will be dependent upon the number of nominations received.
