Thank you to everyone who attended the Special General Meeting.

After the general meeting a forum was held to discuss the issues surrounding the constitution, AGM elections and members not feeling heard. It was a very open and positive discussion and has put the club on course for a more dialog this season. Attached are the meeting minutes. If you have any questions about the SGM or forum after please feel free to speak to any of the Committee Members.

We have had a couple of new members join the club since we wrapped up training and returned to in September. Please make welcome around the club:
A survey will be out soon with options to select major international and national races for MOCC to aim to compete at in 2018. It is also important that MOCC support the local regattas and get some race practice in. The first races of the season will be: January 14 – 15 – Sprint Regatta at the Nagambie rowing center hosted by Inland Outrigger Canoe Club January 24 – 25 – Marathon Regatta at Patterson Lakes hosted by Patterson Lakes Outrigger Canoe Club We will be looking for some commitment to these regattas soon so please check your calendars and save the dates. Locally there is potential for a race in Geelong in March. If you have any questions around the regatta plan please speak to the coaches Steve, Erica, Darren or any of the committee.
