At the club’s AGM on Sat,19th, the committee underwent its largest change of personnel in a few years. Standing down were Troy Thompson and Tim Ellis.
The third person standing down was former vice-president and long-time committee member Randle Beavis.
The fourth person standing down was secretary and also long-time committee member Val Wilks.
Both Randle and Val are life members, honours which reflect the years of dedication they have both given to the club. Their untiring efforts are appreciated and their input will be missed as they take a well-deserved step back. They leave big boots to fill.
There has also been a bit of re-shuffling of positions.
Former vice-president Robbie Bertram steps up to president.
Gavin Kennedy is the new vice-president.
Amy Sears, new to the committee, assumes the rôle of secretary.
Jessie Harman remains as treasurer.
Former president Alan Wilks steps down from the position, but remains on the committee.
Brett Styles, Troy Worboys, Greg Thomas and Rick (Ricky-Bobbie) Howe remain on the committee.
Three other members have agreed to volunteer their time; Gary Friend, Jason Peirce and Glenn Fisher are also welcomed to the committee.
Hurricane – like most kart clubs around the country – suffered a significant downturn in participation numbers for 2016. The new committee, under the enthusiastic guidance of new president Robbie Bertram (don’t call him Donald), aim to reverse that trend in 2017 and beyond.
They look to you, the members, for help and they encourage your suggestions and input. Especially, they want your participation in helping to keep this a strong and vibrant club.
