Junior Division Meeting
There will be a Junior Division meeting this Thursday 13 February, upstairs in the lounge, starting at 6.05pm, followed by Yunca debrief at 6.45pm. All welcome!
Velodrome Access – Stadium Reopening
Following a tenant meeting this morning regarding the reopening of the new ILT Stadium next Monday 17 February, we have been advised that swipe card access through the West Wing side door (adjacent the Cycling Lock Up) will cease.
All Cycling Southland members will still be able to access the Velodrome through the tunnel swipe card door but all other access to the facility will be through the new main front doors of the Stadium building. This is how the security and access worked prior to the building collapse.
If you have any queries please just contact us at the office.
Wheelers & Flyers
A reminder that these beginner and intermediate kids sessions have now restarted for the term – so spread the word to any interested potential young champions of the future. Sessions run 4-5pm and 5-6pm consecutively every Wednesday and Friday and are just $6 a session.
Well after a couple of absolute whoppa editions the past couple of weeks, it gives me pleasure to say that’s all folks for this week.
Enjoy your week ahead
