2019 Constitutional Changes – Ballot

The 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) passed a series of special resolutions to amend the Club’s Constitution.  These amendments cover four separate sets of changes:

  • Change the minimum Youth Membership age to 18
  • Allow removal of Life Members whom the Club has been unable to contact
  • Remove the concept of “leave” for Committee meetings

Constitutional changes, after being approved at the AGM, must be confirmed by a postal ballot of members in order to take effect.  Ballot papers have been posted to all members eligible to vote.  Please follow the instructions on the ballot paper to participate.

Completed ballot papers must be received by 5pm, Friday April 19 2019, to be included in the count.

If you have not received a ballot paper, or have made an error on your ballot paper and would like a new one, you can print one yourself – the link is below.

Also below is a link to information on the background to these changes. This information has been posted to eligible members with ballot papers.

The XC Championships were held as part of the KAC Classic, from Perisher to Charlotte Pass, on Wednesday 9 August 2017. Unusually for the KAC, it was a beautiful day!

Results are on the Race Results page, with links to the full results for each race.

2017 Brumby Races results

The Brumby Races were held on Saturday 22nd July, on Upper Rollercoaster at Blue Cow.  Despite forecast wind, the day turned out to be really nice for weather.

The Brumby Races are held on a dual GS course.  Each racer had two timed runs – one on the red course, and one on the blue, racing next to another racer.

The timed runs are used to determine the winners of the Brumby Cup – but not directly.  A random draw of to match up the men and women was held at the Brumby Dinner on Saturday night, and results for that are given below the timed runs.

Racers also participated in the President’s Cup – a knockout, also using the dual GS course, held after the timed runs.  The winner of each pair progressed to the next round.

Results are on the Race Results page.
