Mike informed the board that a banquet committee has been formed. The club will need an Ironman volunteer to run and staff the booth at the 2017 Ironman ride.

Technology Committee

Edward presented to the board on this topic. The technology committee met recently, looking at new technology and our current systems and security. Bob Floyd attended the meeting to present about the “Ride with GPS” system. The committee is currently looking at what other systems are available that are similar. The committee will be meeting again.

Ride Stats

Bob informed the board that ride stats is almost done with the 2016 ride year. There are a few issues with some PDF files coming in blank. The board will need a list of the ride leaders who qualify for the ride leader gift this year. The board will also need the top ten mileage leaders for men and women, and a list of registered attendees so we can print mileage sheets for those who attend. Bob and Mary will collect this information.

Pete also needs volunteer of the year award nominees soon. Email nominee information to him as soon as possible please.


Mary spoke to the board regarding membership data. There was a slight uptick in membership with the free membership with new bike program. There is still an overall down trend in membership. Membership will be tracking the free memberships from the bike program to see if they renew.

General Business


Doug updated the board on the newsletter developments. Dick Voss recently passed away, and there will be something in the upcoming newsletter about him, as well as about Kathy Horton. There will possibly be an article from Dan Miller. The deadline is this Thursday. There will need to be a write up in the newsletter about the upcoming banquet.


Fran talked to the board regarding the calendars that were recently made up. The thought was that they could be offered for sale on the website and mailed out to people. Mary Derks can set up the website to have them for sale along with our other merchandise. We will also ask Jim P to put something on the website to direct people to where the calendars are being offered for sale.


Steve Scott is working on new jersey designs for a future release of the club jersey. Any color design suggestions that people have please pass on to him. He hopes to have some examples to display at the next meeting.
