Hi Everyone! Your executive met on Friday night to get started on the new race season and want to share some of the topics that were discussed. As always, the first priorities at this time of year are to negotiate our race dates and to start planning for the bike show. In addition to that, we are working on the details regarding hosting our own track days and creating a race school so that we can be ready to promote both at the bike show. Other items that came up were possible “reward programs” for committed set up and tear down volunteers and corner marshals; new club meeting location possibility at Jimmy Mac’s Pub in Walnut Grove; ways to increase membership; a more organized mentoring program; having a pub night/fundraiser; promotional ideas; and the need to purchase a generator for the timing tower and a more effective printer for registration. We also discussed possible configuration changes to certain classes, and the potential operational challenges to adding a new class. We are asking you to contact the executive if you are interested in volunteering for either Pro or Novice Rider’s Rep, or for a spot on the rules committee. It was agreed that it is necessary that you be a member of the club to fill any of these roles. These are some of the things that we will be discussing at future club meetings and our hope is that you’ll come out to share your ideas.
