RLCT 40th anniversary

We are celebrating the 40th Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour on the weekend of June 11th & 12th, 2011.

Isn't it amazing that an event started by a few dedicated Club members has not only survived 40 years but has grown enormously in popularity since its humble beginnings in 1972?

OBC Constitution Review - On-line Discussion

A session was held on January 16th , 2011 for Club members to provide input to the proposed OBC Constitution changes. It was a session for all members to provide comments and input to the Board and the Constitution Committee.

For those who could not attend, or who would prefer to discuss interactively online the proposed changes to the Constitution, please post your comments to the constitution discussion on the club bulletin board to ensure all discussion stays together and is easily accessible. We encourage you to share your thoughts and ideas on the proposed changes on the forum.

OBC Constitution Review - Reminder

At the 2010 AGM, the Board presented proposed amendments to the OBC Constitution, based on work done over the previous year by a special committee made up from OBC membership at large. These amendments were endorsed by the Board. Although input from members was represented in these amendments, members present at the meeting felt that additional time should be permitted above and beyond the 30 days notice already given to comment on the proposed changes before voting.  Proposed changes are on-line here .

In response to this concern, the Board will hold an open consultative meeting on Sunday January 16, 2011 from 12:30 to 4:00 pm, at the Ottawa City Hall (Colonel By Room) to receive further input from the membership on the amendments.

All members are welcome to attend the session on January 16th and to provide input. Once the Board has considered and re-endorsed the amendment package, a vote by the membership to ratify the Board's recommended constitutional amendments will be scheduled.
