TORCA AGM – Thursday, Dec. 8 2016

November 14, 2016 at 12:16 pm

The Tri-cities Off Road Cycling Association (TORCA) is pleased to formally announce the date of its Annual General Meeting.

Date: Thursday December 8, 2016
Time: 7:00pm-8:30pm
Where: Coquitlam’s City Center Library (Room 136) 1169 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam

We will recap our accomplishments from the past year, discuss our direction for 2017, review our financial statement, and hold elections for the TORCA executive positions.
In addition, there will be a special resolution to update TORCA’s bylaws so that they comply with the new Society Act of BC.  A copy of the proposed new bylaws can be found here (click to view).

We are looking for some passionate and committed people to join the executive.  Executive job descriptions are available here (click to view).  If you are interested in running for one of these positions, please email ken@torca.ca with your name and the position you are interested in so that we may prepare the ballots before the AGM. Nominations will also be accepted at the meeting.

If joining the TORCA executive isn’t your thing, then maybe you will consider joining a committee.  We are looking for people help with races, fundraising, social media/website, trail building, and special events.  If any of these appeal to you, please let a director know at the AGM or email ken@torca.ca .

Everyone is welcome to attend the AGM. However, only TORCA members who have paid their annual membership are entitled to vote.  Voting by proxy is not permitted.

Advisory – Decapitator trail closure

October 24, 2016 at 3:08 pm

We have received the following notification from Recreation Sites and Trails:

“Due to the lack of a formalized maintenance plan and the significant environmental impacts of motorized use on the localized trail known as Decapitator, ‘No Motorized Vehicle Beyond This Point’ signs have been posted at three locations on the trail. (Photos have been attached for your reference)

Silt fencing and “CAUTION Salmon at Work’ signs have also been placed in environmentally sensitive areas associated to the Noons Creek and West Noons Creek watersheds.

Recreation Sites and Trails made the above efforts to mitigate further advanced erosion which could eventually render the trail unusable.”

Please respect the posted signs.
