Notice of Special General Meeting of Downhill Ski Club inc. Posted 13/5/21
6:00pm Saturday 29th May
Ryder’s Cinema and Restaurant
177 Riversdale Road, Avondale
Agenda
Apologies
“that the Downhill Ski Club inc. be wound up at the end of the 2021 ski season”
“that the Club continue to operate using only National Park lodge for the 2021 season”

Close meeting.

Progress has been made with DOC. They have decided to hold us to our obligation to clear the mountain site when we surrender our licence. This means the club will dispose of the National Park lodge to contribute to the cost. Said cost will be more than National Park lodge is worth. As a result the club will wind up.

DOC has agreed, given how long these things take, we will be able to use National Park lodge for all of this season.

We will use the movie night opportunity to double as a Special General Meeting for the membership to decide if we will operate this season or stop now and refund subs.

The motions to ratify will be:
“that the Downhill Ski Club inc. be wound up at the end of the 2021 ski season”

This must be and will be confirmed at a subsequent Special General Meeting convened for that purpose.

“that the Club continue to operate using only National Park lodge for the 2021 season”

If you can’t attend you may join electronically. Let us know we will give you a meeting link or record your apology. Proxies are not permitted.
If you were financial last year you may vote at both SGM. Should the membership decide we will operate we would appreciate you paying your subs ASAP. The committee is of the opinion we should operate this season.

We plan this SGM to be very short and to the point and not take over the movie night and dinner. There will be no discussion. To that end we will hold online forums to discuss the issues, pros and cons, etc. These will be informal and no decisions will be made in them. Please join a few minutes early.
