The names in brackets at the bottom of each team are members not in teams but on the marshal list for those teams.
* = members without Traffic Control cards sitting the Traffic Control course on Feb 1st. along with some members who have a 2014 expiry on their TC cards.
Club member, Brian Corrigan has requested that members and supporters of the Nowra Velo Club not to give out any of his contact information due to possible scam attempts on the probate of his fathers estate.
While we all realise the season for Nowra Velo is rolling to a close for 2013, there are still a few events remaining on this years calander. And with these events, the marshalling teams are still crutial to the correct staging of each event. The last couple of events have seen a rather poor effort from some members rostered to teams for this duty. Remember that while you raced throughout the year, there were others in the lead and follow vehicles, others holding stop slow bats and others holding watches, wearing commissiares uniforms, compiling results and getting the reports done. Each team have only been rostered to a marshalling duty on five occasions throughout the year. Is this really too much so that you can race while somebody else does the official duties through the remainder of the year? It's your club too, help out when you are required!
For Immediate Release: Pedal-Powered Author Comes to Nowra On Tuesday 12th November at 12pm come and hear author Greg Foyster speak about his inspiring pedal-powered detour from the rat race ? Changing Gears ? at DeanSwift Books, 120 Junction St Nowra. Changing Gears is a high-spirited adventure book charting Greg Foyster?s remarkable, life-transforming cycling challenge he undertook with his girlfriend Sophie from Hobart to Cairns on a quest to find out if we can be happier with less. Cycling for more than 8 months and 6500 kilometres, Greg and Sophie conducted over 80 in-depth interviews with lone visionaries and engaged communities alike, all seeking a more sustainable life. There?s the barefoot monk who walked from Gold Coast to Townsville with only three robes and an alms bowl, the man who lived in the bush for 20 years without electricity and went on ?historical treks? using 18th century tools and clothing, the ?modern swagman? who wandered the highway for three decades, and many more DIY downshifters with fascinating stories to tell. Greg tells a riveting yarn ? engaging, self-effacing and with many laugh-out-loud moments. The 6586km bike expedition was a million miles from Greg?s comfortable former lifestyle as an ad man ? the furthest he?d cycled in one sitting was 50km and the longest he?d been in a tent was three days at a music festival. Along the way he confronted his own character flaws, contended with bum blisters, tasted road kill and got by on only two changes of clothing. Greg and Sophie are now on a 60-day, 2000-kilometre pedal-powered book tour, visiting 30 bookshops from Melbourne through regional VIC, ACT & NSW before finishing in Sydney in mid November. Don?t miss out on this chance to hear Greg and Sophie talk about their fascinating stories of life on the road.
