The VERA AGM has been held at the lovely Kings Park in Seymour. A great, covid safe venue for this activity. We welcome the return of Paul Nugent as Vice President and extend our thanks to the following people who have been elected as Committee Members:

Lyn Taylor

Alex Little

Damien Little

Paul Bryson

Sheree Haines Bishop

There are a number of awards/sashes that could not be handed to our well deserving members so the SMC will arrange to bring these to the next few rides where they can be picked up. Contact will be made with the award winners to organise this.

Thanks to the small band of committed members who turned up and participated in the discussions.

The VERA SMC would like to advise that all AGM papers have now been emailed
or snail mailed out.  If you have not received a copy,  all paperwork can be
downloaded from the VERA website at the following link:
2021 VERA Annual General Meeting

If you are unable to attend the AGM and would like to register an apology
please contact the VERA Secretary, Mezcal Manners.  

We all look forward to catching up with you, sharing some good discussions
and socialising afterwards.

The VERA SMC would like to remind people who are planning on attending the AGM on Saturday to register via Trybooking. Registration will close tomorrow so please click on the following link and enter your details. Members and non-members are welcome to attend.

Don't forget that the location of the AGM has moved to the Ag Pavilion, Kings Park, Tallarook Road, Seymour. Looking forward to seeing you all.


AERA have advised that any members who wish to apply for AERA Rider and Horse Distance Awards, which will be presented at the 2022 Tom Quilty event, should have their applications submitted to the AERA Registrar by 15 April 2022. Anyone wishing to be recognised for the Decade Teams Award (and we have had a couple of people reach this achievement this year) should also submit their application by this date. The appropriate Forms are available on the AERA website.

The VERA SMC have been monitoring the Covid situation as well as staffing issues at the Seymour Club venue and have decided to run the AGM at an outdoor location. The AGM and Presentations will now be held at the Ag Pavilion, Kings Park, Tallarook Road, Seymour.

Registration for attendance will commence at 1.30 pm with the AGM to start at 2.00 pm. The Presentations will commence immediately after the AGM is completed.

The VERA SMC considered the cost of membership following advice received from AERA that price increases would be applied to a number of their charges. These increases are due to the higher than expected cost of the insurance policies required for endurance events.

The costs for all membership categories (Adult Riding, Junior Riding, Intermediate and Association) will, unfortunately, increase by $5. The Family membership, which covers 2 adults and 2 juniors will increase by $10.

Costs for half-yearly membership in the above mentioned membership categories will increase by $5 also. This is because VERA pays the same amount to AERA for half-yearly and full year membership.

Membership Application forms are currently being updated and will be available on the Forms menu of the website in the next few days.
