Tandem Talk November 2011

Victory in Sight

Our Legal Warrior, Trevor Maslen, is on the verge of a great victory in his long running battle to restore WATCAC to constitutionality (is that a word?) After countless changes and consultations with the WA Department of Commerce, our new constitution is ready to be approved at the AGM. Make sure you are there for the vote to make it official and to congratulate Trevor and thank him for his persistence.

A Great Big Thankyou

Member Jennifer Musgrave has two sons, Rohan and Aaron. Whilst on the West Australian Great Bike Ride, the boys raised $500 dollars by selling bracelets to the participants and have donated the proceeds to WATCAC. That is just awesome, thanks boys!

Annual General Meeting

WATCAC will be holding it’s annual Christmas ride and AGM on Sunday 11 December 2011. We are trying a new venue in Maylands which won’t be so windy, fingers crossed. An email has already been sent inviting all members to attend.

Recent Rides

On the last club ride, three tandems and one solo bike rode from Victoria Park to Jandakot and back. Just to show that even the most experienced tandem riders can stack it, Adriana and Hab met some trouble with an oil patch on a roundabout near Jandakot. They got back on the bike and rode home, but Hab didn’t really wake up again until Monday. They’re both a bit sore, but can smile about it now.

On the 6th of November, ten tandems and 2 singles rode from Guildford to Whiteman’s Park and back. That is a lot of tandems. Good work everyone.

Rottnest Weekend

Well the year got away from us and our plans fell through. Never mind, we can go in 2012. Stay tuned for details.

Rate your Favourite Cafe

A bright idea from Hab – let’s share our favourite cafes. I rated my favourite – Antz in Your Pants in Vic Park – as a 9 but then found out that 5 was the top mark. Too bad, Antz coffee is great, I’m sticking with my 9 out of 5. Not to be outdone, Hab has rated Jezebel’s in Guildford as a 9 too. Which is your favourite cafe?

Come and Try Day and New Members

Hab, Adriana and Jennifer helped out at Cycling WA’s come and try day on the 5th of November. There was a good turn out and we’ve enrolled two new members who have already taken a tandem out on loan. Welcome Paul and Sharon.
