President Report: Think it would be good for our club to help other clubs by joining them in their fund-raising rides. We have open weekends and can try to do once or twice a month. If I don’t know of any, will ask members for club rides, they are interested in going on. At meetings or on line.
Had a good weekend with the BFE club, a little wet, but they always treat us well. Good for the club to support them as they always come over and support us on our POW/MIA fund-raiser. Precious was able to come back with a $200.00 donation for our club.
Want to start an early afternoon BBQ or maybe a combination late brunch at the clubhouse on the 2nd Sunday of the month, make it a Sunday social for members to get together.
