Retiring Directors Service Recognised
At the recent Annual General Meeting of the Southern 100 Motorcycle Racing Club, two retiring Directors were made honorary Vice Presidents of the club making eight in total.
Dave Ali and Peter Chadwick, have thirty years’ service between them, Dave Ali was presented
with a certificate in appreciation of his time and commitment to the racing on the Billown Course by Club President Phil Taubman MBE.
Unfortunately, Peter Chadwick was indisposed and unable to attend the AGM and will be presented with his certificate at the next monthly meeting of the club.
The ‘duo’ joins Don Fairbairn, Dr David Stevens MBE, Herbie Kelly, Harvey Garton, Alan Reid, and Richard Haddock as Vice Presidents, with both Herbie and Harvey having also raced around the
4.25-mile course, Harvey piloting Sidecars between 1989 and 1991 and
Herbie on two-wheels between 1978 and 1998.
Phil Taubman MBE said: ‘On behalf of the Southern 100 Club, I would like to thank all four retiring directors for all their conscientious and hard work during their time as directors guiding the races to the high standard and reputation they enjoy today.
‘They have all informed me that each of them will still be involved once pre-race and course preparation commences and during our three events and look forward to their continued support and seeing them at Billown.’
At the conclusion of the AGM members present enjoyed a splendid buffet provided by Bob and Jill Walton for which the Southern 100 Club were most grateful.
