Tripleshot's 2017 Annual General Meeting

Post by John D » Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:12 am

Please be advised that Tripleshot's 2017 Annual General Meeting will take place on Tuesday September 26th in the wild Rose Room of the UVic University Club, beginning at 6:30pm. Whereas previous AGMs have been held in December, the Tripleshot Executive Committee has decided that it makes more sense to move the AGM closer to the end of the club's fiscal year (which is August 31st).

Agenda as follows:
- Call to order
- Approval of agenda and 2016 AGM minutes
- President's report
- Treasurer's report and 2017-2018 budget
- Report on Tripleshot youth program
- Election of Executive Committee members for 2018
- Adjournment of official AGM

- Open discussion: town hall format

Shout-outs and thank-yous:

- Hugh Hart, Roland Rabien, John Taylor
- All the Tripleshot coaches
- Lister Farrar – the hardest working cycling coach in BC
- Women’s Cycling Clinic coaches
- The rest of the TSC Executive Committee
- My unofficial ‘advisors’ – you know who you are
- All of you for coming out tonight

Discussion: Sponsorship for the Cross Fondo for next year – need a policy that will offer current sponsor to right of first refusal. Will bring this up with them when send letters out to current
sponsors. Current agreement with sponsors is over in one more year.
Motion to form a committee that will develop a formal sponsorship policy. Motion by Peter Lawless and John Taylor – Motion Carried

TS budgeted for a $2000 deficit and finished the year with a $1117 deficit.
Total revenues: $40,211. Total expenses: $41,329
Cash on hand at the end of the fiscal year totaled $13,427
TSC had 225 registered members in 2016
Motion to accept the budget as presented: Geoff Wong, Dave Attwell seconded
Motion carried unanimously
Motion to waive the need for a formal audit of club expenses: Rolf Warburton, Martin Farnham seconded
Motion carried unanimously

Proposed budget for 2017
Numbers are consistent with last fiscal year and assume similar sponsorship, event, membership and
gaming grant revenues. TS contributions to the junior program are also consistent with the previous
fiscal year.
Budget projects a $2250 deficit in order to continue to reduce the amount of cash on hand (too much can affect our gaming grant eligibility)
Cross Fondo is budgeted at break even. Net profits from this event will be directed entirely toward the junior program, with the intent of replacing the Global Relay funds that were received in FY 2015/16.
Suggestion that we put in a separate Gaming Grant application for the Cross Fondo was suggested. Not clear whether this would jeopardize the existing grant. MEC have expressed an interest in some sort of sponsorship. Potential of other grants out there to be looked at by the (yet to be formed) ad hoc sponsorship committee.

Motion to approve budget - Alan Cassells, seconded by John Taylor. Motion carried unanimously

[quote="Roland"]What did I do to deserve that?[quote]

Your continued lightning-fast response to requests (mainly from me and Joana) to fix glitches and tweak things on the Tripleshot website.

And then there was that morning a few months back when you showed up in your, um, "barely there" skin-toned skinsuit. Wait - that one was more of a scream-out, as in "Oh my god - my freakin' eyes! How am I supposed to un-see that???!!!!"
