1. Sadiq chaired the meeting and gave a quick run down of the club's achievements in the last year, including our last place in the Scottish TTT champs, our increasing membership and popular the club runs. Sadiq then introduced Jimmy Harris to the club and presented him with honorary membership for his support and kind donation of 4 trophies.
Sadiq then announced he was standing down as President due, mainly, to work commitments.

7. Foz gave his financial statement, it looks like we're doing fine, he's in the process of sorting a bank account out. More information on the accounts once Foz explains them to me!

9. AOB: Tobias proposed that Sadiq would be made an Honarary member and this was passed unanimously.

Grant said "A big thank you to everyone who came along to the club's first AGM last night. There was a lot of good ideas coming forward and the meeting was held in a good spirit and I reckon it bodes well for the future of the club. Big thanks also to Foz, Sadiq, Bill and Matt for doing a good job of keeping such a motley crew in order for the proceedings! Keep your eyes peeled for details of our first reliabilty ride which will be held on Sunday 15th March 2009!"
Malcolm went on to say "Good meeting last night and some good decisions made (apart from keeping the shirt colours for longer than it takes to wear it out)"
