TVCC RUNS AND MEETINGS FROM JULY 2020 ONWARDS

 COVID-19 has had a substantial effect on the Clubs runs and meetings. The following is a current update of the situation:

 

RUNS

 The recent easing of restrictions provides some opportunity to restart our runs. These will need to be carefully considered to ensure they comply with the restrictions in force at the time. Care is needed here as two clubs have breached the restrictions and are being required to show cause why they should not be fined.

 

Firstly, the Protocols for Recommencing Club Runs

Maximum Number of Participants is 20.

Members must make their own decision whether or not it is safe for them to participate.

If unwell, you must not participate.

You need to advise the club at least the day before if you intend to participate. Do not just turn up.

If necessary, a waiting list will be established for each event.

Social Distancing is to be practised.

Hand Sanitiser will be added to the Club First Aid kits.

 

Two proposed runs were discussed at out meeting on 18 June 2020.

The first was a Pie Run to Currabubula Hotel on Thursday 2 July. After considerable discussion, it was decided not to proceed with the run on the grounds that there are too many difficulties involved. The hotel could accommodate 20 but we usually get many more than that on our Pie Runs. Members would have to notify in advance of their intention to participate and after 20 we would not be able to accept any more which would lead to disappointments. There is also the problem that some members might go directly to the hotel which would immediately exceed the 20 person limitation and some members would have to be turned away at the hotel. Some members might also decide not to go as part of the Clubs run and use their log book instead. This might sound good, but they would obviously be associated with our Club resulting in us exceeding the 20 person limit at the hotel and create a situation which the hotel and our Club could well do without.

 The next Pie Run falls on Thursday 6 August. A decision on this run will be made at a later date.

 

The second run is the Monthly run on Sunday 19 July. This will be to Uralla to visit Little Birdie which is an antiques shopping area comprising 34 small stalls which are all owned by separate people and sell everything from perfumes and clothing to oil cans! Morning tea is proposed for Moonbi Lookout, and lunch at Michaels Café in the old Bank of NSW building, or elsewhere.

It was decided to proceed with this run on the condition that all the protocols mentioned above be observed. Members proposing to attend must advise Greg on or before 18 July.

This run will be somewhat of a ‘test’ under the current restrictions and provide good experience and feedback for further runs.

 

 Other future runs:

 20 September 2020. Boggabri Tractor Display.

 24-25 October 2020. CHMC (Bush Council) 50th Anniversary celebrations at Raymond Terrace.

 8 – 12 April 2021. CHMC (Bush Council) Annual Rally at Temora.

 

 MEETINGS

 Our May and June meetings were conducted via the Zoom video link.

 It is not known when our normal Meeting Room at the Salvation Army complex will be available and due to the size, it may be limited to less than 20 members. There is a possibility that we may be allowed to use the main hall.

 

JULY meeting on Thursday 16 July 2020:

Most likely be conducted via video link.

 

AUGUST meeting and ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING on Thursday 20 August 2020:

Deferral of the AGM was discussed as it is possible that the Salvation Army Meeting Room might still not be available. It was decided to proceed with the AGM on the basis that the required notification for an AGM had been made and no substantial issues regarding the election of the Committee or finances would need to be addressed. If arrangements cannot be made for the August meetings at the Salvation Army complex, they will be held by video link. The Clubs Constitution provides for this.

 

Take care and keep well, and we will do everything we can to continue our events.
