The VERA SMC would like to advise that the Moyston ride will be run on 12-14 June. Sioux Reid and the Moyston Fire Brigade will be putting on another of their cracking rides at the Moyston Recreation Reserve. Ride distances will be a 40km ride on Saturday and an 80 and 160km on the Sunday.
This will be a great ride to get your 2023 Quilty qualification ride out of the way on very achievable and horse friendly tracks. Thanks to the Moyston team for putting their hands up. This will be a very popular ride.

The SMC would love to see as many members as possible at the AGM, Presentations and lunch afterwards so that we can catch up after a year of not seeing too many of you.
Please give some serious consideration to nominating for a position on the Committee as currently the number of nominations received is insufficient to run the Association. We need more people to put their hand up and offer a bit of their time to assist with the many activities that are planned.
Please note that numbers attending need to be provided to the VERA Secretary, Ellen Prestage, by 9 JANUARY 2021 for catering purposes.
The VERA SMC would like to provide some advice on Proxy Voting at the AGM for the information of members.
Proxy voting is permitted at an AGM and Proxy Voting Forms will be sent with the AGM Agenda. Proxy votes must be received by the VERA Secretary, Ellen Prestage, if sent electronically or by mail, no less than 24 hours before the start time of the agenda. Any Proxy votes received via these mediums after the minimum 24 hours will be declared invalid.
Proxy votes can be handed to the Chair of the meeting prior to the start of the meeting. Voting by proxy is not permitted for the election of Committee members. A member can only hold 5 proxy votes. All proxy votes will be scrutinised to ensure that the person providing the proxy is a member and that the person holding the proxy is also a member.
AERA have forwarded a summary document of the new rule changes that will come into effect from 1 January 2021. The document is attached for the information of members and non-members who may be attending rides.
