Director's Weekly Email 6th November
6th November 2019
Sorry this is a bit late this week as I was enjoying the Chapter meeting last night; those of you that attended will already know most of what is in here, but thought I would send this out for everyone else.
Tony Fitzgerald came along last night and just reminded us of all the great work the Child Cancer Foundation do, as you know they are the charity we are supporting at out Poker Ride on 17 November. This event is run by us for all riders so please come along and bring your friends to what is always a good day and great opportunity to support CCF.
We have had a bit of a hiccup with the Christmas party which has resulted in us changing the venue to the Porirua Club, all other plans remain the same and I have no doubt we are in for a great night. This is one of the key annual events the committee invest club funds in to to provide a great experience for members so get out there and take the opportunity.
Just a quick reminder you can always find more details about upcoming events on our app, “Member Jungle” or our website, https://www.wellingtonhog.co.nz/ to help the organisers of our events can you please register your intention to come along, this also allows us to communicate information about events including plan changes directly with those who have registered.
