SORCE AGM

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

SORCE will be holding its 2009 Annual General Meeting Tuesday November 17, at 7:00pm at The South Surrey Arena meeting room.

Everyone that attends will receive a SORCE lanyard, just for attending. As well, everyone that attends is entered in a draw to win a set of Race Face Atlas (or Deus) Cranks with E Type Bottom Bracket as well as lots of other SWAG prizes. If you attended a trail day this year you can enter a second time for all prizes.

We need to elect a new executive team for 2010. New Executive members would be greatly appreciated and bring new ideas and new blood to the club.

Executive Positions to be filled are:

  • President
  • VP
  • Secretary/Treasurer
  • Membership Manager
  • Trail Dude
  • Dirt Jump Dude
  • Events Coordinator (probably just 1 race, and not race director)
  • Liaison to the City of Surrey

If you have an interest, we would love some new members on the executive.

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday November 17

New Executive for 2009

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Another year has passed and another AGM is in the books.

The big news is that Jim has finally convinced someone else to take over as President! It took him years of threats and complaining, but he eventually convinced Garvey to take the lead role. The members of the new executive can be found here.

This will mean some changes to the focus of the club, so now more than ever, we need input and help with moving the club forward.

THANKS JIM for years of dedication and hard work! SORCE and the bike park would not exist without your tireless efforts.

Bike Park Revamp Under Way!

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
After 4 years of planning the long awaited Bike Park Epicentre Completion Project has started!  Heavy equipment was on site today relocating the storage, and grading the site in preparation for the changes.  Look for a larger relocated pump track (designed by local riders Dustin Dobson and Simon Quinn Sears) as well as some DJ modifications.  There will be an improved entry point with better informational signage and maps, a bike wash station (it never rains in White Rock?), bleachers for DJ spectators, a covered picnic area, and increased storage for trail day materials and equipment. In addition, Metro Vancouiver has OK'd the development of a huge new skills area near the Water Tower. We are looking for help building the skills area and any sponsorship will be recognized on the new Sponsor Board that will be featured on site.  SORCE has already set aside $5000 to contribute to this worthwhile public project.
