Club in gear for reunion
MORE than 200 people will take a trip down memory lane when Rockhampton Cycling Club holds its 50-year reunion tomorrow night.
In a coup for the event, to be held at Rockhampton's Brothers Leagues Club, the Rockhampton Cup On Wheels original wheelrace champions will attend.
John McMaster, the 1960 Rockhampton Cup on Wheels winner, and Carol Ball, now Carol Wood, who won the first Capricornia Cup (women's wheelrace) in 1961, will join others from as far as the Northern Territory and Tasmania for the occasion.
Other former champions re- turning for the "50 Years and Still Rolling'' dinner include Greg Shuker and the Tucker brothers, Byron, Kenrick and Russell.
Of course, the Rockhampton Cycling Club has not become the success it is without the efforts of those off the bike.
Many former club stalwarts will be in attendance including Ted Price, who during his presidency was instrumental in the erection of the velodrome lights.
Current club members will also compete in a race meet tonight from 7.30 at the Kenrick Tucker Velodrome.
Tickets for the 50-year reunion dinner can be purchased from all local bike shops for $20 each.
