Beginning September membership dues will be pro-rated 50% until March. Student membership is $10 (does not get halved). Jurgen is asking about reaching out to Tech Students.
Jurgen was able to visit Andrew Montford. Andrew is currently in Bosnia. Went out on a two-year round-the-world trip. He decided to relocate in South-West Bosnia to run a craft brewery. He has not been able to ride as much but wanted to say “Hi” to everyone.
We need some kind of regular large group event.
Daren Lynn is looking for support and interest in NICA.
Bobby will be starting the Stumpy Hamilton Gravel training ride.
Next Meeting will be at the Stewart’s on September 10th.
