What a great weekend at Murray River Ride.

Congrats to Matt and Shanna Milne and all their team for a well run ride. For first time Ride Organisers you have excelled! Lots and lots of happy faces, plenty of newcomers and smiling volunteers. I am sure everyone enjoyed the track as much as I did from the comments I heard. If you'd like to provide some constructive comments on the ride or if you have any suggestions for improvements please use the Ride Review Form on the VERA Website. These comments will be reviewed by the SMC before being passed onto the Ride Organisers to ensure nothing derogatory or inflammatory is communicated.

The SMC have approved another ride for the VERA Calendar. Moyston ride will be run on the 14th & 15th September.

Ride distances will be 40km on Saturday and 40km and 105km elevated on Sunday. Ride details will be posted on VERA and AERA calendars in the next few days.

Thanks very much to Sioux Reid and her crew for putting on this great ride again.

The SMC would like to extend a very warm welcome to our new Committee member, Paulene Drew.  Paulene is a relative newcomer to endurance who is keen to learn more about our sport and to offer some assistance at the same time.  It’s great to have an extra set of hands to share the load.  Please join me in thanking Paulene for putting her hand up and make her feel welcome if you meet her at rides.

The SMC has commenced its review of the responses received from the Members Survey.  The responses were categorized and a count taken of the number of responses allocated to each category.  The count and categories are:

The first Member's Survey has now closed and the VERA SMC will be looking at collating and analysing the data over the next few weeks. The outcomes will be presented to the next meeting of the SMC and an action plan developed to assist the Committee in addressing the most urgent issues that impact on our members.

Thank you to the 26 people who took the time to respond and provide your thoughts on our sport. Your input is very much appreciated.
