Open Meeting – JH1, 7:30pm, Feb 3rd 2015
GC 2015 (AKA the best weekend of the year!!) is getting ever closer, and as part of the preparations, our next open meeting will take place at 7:30pm on Tuesday February 3rd.
This meeting is aimed at all collectors and cyclists, and will consist primarily of an information night, but is also a great way to get to know the people you have been, and will be, cycling with off the bike – people look different without lycra, believe it or not, and it’ll be street clothes for Galway on the Saturday. All are welcome and encouraged to attend, whether you’ve registered for the first time, have yet to decide to take the plunge (do it!), or have 20+ cycles under your belt already! In the case that you’re on the fence still, this would be a great time to talk to people about the weekend itself, and convince yourself (as if it were needed) that you should be coming along! It’s also a great way to talk to people about ideas for fundraising, and all other aspects of the cycle and the weekend.
The meeting will be chaired by Therese Lynn (this year’s president), and a rough agenda for the evening is below:
- Roxy will speak about training, both so far and what is to come
- Rose Phelan will present on behalf of Irish Guide Dogs about the Assistance Dog Programme.
- All participants will also get a free Irish Guide Dogs Calendar!!
- There will be pizza for students from 7pm
So make sure to come along and meet your GC compatriots, as well as a reminder of why you’re cycling 400km (or supporting it if you’re a collector!)
