     We have had an extremely quiet time of late on the Treasury
front. The open events were held earlier in the year and all went
off very smoothly.

     Our funds remain in a healthy state – long may it continue.

Dave Haggart, Steve Carter Smith and Alan Rowe at 8.05 on their
100km ride. Evenutally at 9.35 our second group of riders 5
riders of Debbie, Mick, Steve Valentine plus Roy Savery and Peter
Jenn started their 50km ride. A total of 252 riders were sent in
groups of around 10 by 9.45, this gave us an opportunity to have
a quick coffee before the riders from the other side of the county
