Cycling Geelong Christmas Party – December 15th, 2020

Thanks to Stephanie and Geoff for hosting a wonderful night of seasonal fun.

There were 35 members at the Fyansford Hotel for Cycling Geelong’s Christmas bash.  After all the restrictions it was good to be back socialising and we were once again able to use to Hyland Room.  Everyone all had plenty of time to chatter and catch after such a long break.Kris Kringle added more fun to the night.

The annual President’s Award was the only formal part of the occasion.  The recipient for 2020-20 is Heather Howard – a Life Member, who has stood down from Committee this year after many years of helping guide the club.  Heather is a club stalwart – who organised the social meetings and dinners for a number of years, was variously Vice President, and relief secretary and is our club archivist.  Though Heather no longer cycles, she continues to be an active member, and is an expert on all cycling racing  news.  After 10 years at the helm of The Bicycle Show on 94.7 The Pulse FM, Heather has decided that it’s time to move on to reclaim Saturday mornings for other pursuits.  Heather always supports the annual Goldfields Tour – as relief driver and rider support.   (If anyone has photos of Heather receiving her award, we’d love to share them with our members. Please send them to Helen.)

Best wishes for Christmas
