The 1st of November marked the end of Peter Gauntlett’s tenure as the VSOC Vice Chairman. Peter carried out the role conscientiously and with the utmost dedication. He was a regular at the National Rallies, the International and also the Dutch and Belgian rallies.
I am sure you will all join me in thanking him for his efforts over the years. On a personal note I would also like to thank Peter for his advice and support since I took over as Chairman. I wish Peter a relaxing future with the club now that he can enjoy it without the pressures of a national committee position.
(Trevor Bridgwood – VSOC Chairman)
A word from Peter, the man himself…
I have been VC since 2008 so 12 years and never had to battle to stay in the position so I assume that I was doing OK or no one else wanted the job, I hope it was the first scenario.
I would like to think that I have always done everything that was asked of me and went the extra mile if I felt it needed attending to.
Apart from one or two issues the job has never really pressurised me as project management was my forte
As Trevor said I have attended most national rallies and all but one International rally since 2008 and most if not all Dutch and Belgium rallies, in fact I know that I have attended all Belgium rallies since day one.
I always felt that in the position I was in I should be seen at those events to support the club if necessary.
I thank Trevor for his kind words and hope that I will be included in the AGM issues for the last time.
Still doing the job to the end can I remind all Reps that your centre accounts must be sent to Anne by the end of the month and I will follow this through as my last job so be warned lol.
Finally, just to say I am always here should anyone need any help or advice as I have built up a fair understanding of the job.
Good luck to Helen who is taking over from me, please support her in the normal way. Thank you
