Will and Susan will present the club’s scholarships at Shandon High School June 13.
Future club meetings. August members’ meeting will be a presentation by a Physical Therapist and November meeting will be on bike travel.
Dave presented the recommendations of the committee that has been reviewing the Wildflower ride. Their recommendation was that we continue with the ride for 2019 but stipulate that the ride will only continue beyond then if it meets the following conditions:
Rider registration must remain at 800 or above.
The number of volunteers from partner organizations and north county SLOBC members increases.
Donations to partners are made on a per rider basis so they are consistent with ride revenue.
The Board passed a resolution to adopt these recommendations (MSC: Martin, Birch). Dave will draft a summary of the process and recommendations for publication in the newsletter. Will Benedict (next year’s ride chair) will discuss the conditions with Creston/Shandon area organizations and set up a planning committee to provide continuity in managing the ride. There was also approval of Will’s suggestion to move the ride back to the last weekend in April.
The meeting adjourned at approximately 6:15 pm.
Jack Robison, Secretary
