Old Business
July 4th Parade (on a Wednesday). Jurgen ended up running backwards in the Parade. WTCA was at the very end of the parade. It seems like everyone who participated had fun. There were 8 or 10 kids on bikes. It would be nice to see how many people join as a part of this event
We still need ride leaders for the LP&L rides and for the Saturday Intermediate rides.
Buffalo Springs lake Triathlon - It was a bit of a challenge this year due to a lack of resources. Lori and Ricki said we were voted number one for Triathlon Rest Stops. It went really well and thank you to all who joined.
There is still a need to find a President. There have been no volunteers at this time.
The trailer will be left with Robby Thrasher.
We need to re-stock our business cards. Likely we will use VistaPrint. This will be a minor expense to the club, but we need to get this taken care of.
Since there have been so many deaths in the Midland Odessa area, do we want to sponsor a billboard or other signage?
Permian Basin was able to get some billboards donated after the multiple deaths that have occurred.
Lamar Advertising has been contacted previously. They would charge us for printing but give us the advertising space free of charge. The printing fees were around $500 each.
Have we talked to TxDOT to put information about watching for Cyclists on their digital billboard? We have not at this time.
Do we want to look at costs for getting these?
There is still some progress occurring as part of the Walk Bike Lubbock project. The next internal meeting will be in August. There will be an open meeting in September.
Chaparral is in process of designing a new jersey.
