Murray Sallaway

On Saturday June 9th 2018 during a brief  break in racing at the 2018 Percival Property Port Macquarie Junior Tour our club inducted Murray Sallaway as our 6th Life Member.

Murray has been a servant of the club for many years. Most recently as a commissaire for the past few years. As an indication of Murray’s feeling for the club, he became quite emotional at times during the presentation.

One of our official guests, Graham Seers, founder of the Port Macquarie Cycle club (as we know it today),  a life member of our club and the recently appointed CEO of Cycling NSW,

presented Murray with his Life Membership.
