The meeting was called to order at 6:30pm. The meeting minutes from September were reviewed. There were 2 wording corrections to be made. A motion was made by Bob to accept the amended meeting minutes, and it was seconded by Mike. There was no opposition, the motion passed.
Bob stated ride stats has moved into a development stage with Michele. Some items being worked on are related to solo rides and self-reporting. The tech committee has done some work with the club’s new Zoom account, testing different features. Several of these features can and should be used during the annual meeting/awards banquet. These features give the option for voting during the meeting. It is also possible to record the meeting if needed.
Bob gave a brief membership update. The renewal rate was approx. 80% for the month.
Mike stated there is not much to report for the volunteer committee.
There were no accidents to report.
Doug stated there is not much content for the next issue so far. Doug needs information about the upcoming annual meeting/banquet for the newsletter. A question was asked about what time to start the meeting and how long “happy hour” should be? The meeting will start at 7:00pm, length of happy hour will be decided after playing with the functionality of Zoom and the chat rooms.
Roger reviewed account balances with the board. There is one uncashed check. Revenue is down, the bank balance is down, newsletter revenue is down, but expenses are down too. Roger stated the annual charitable trust filing is due in December. Discussion was held regarding charitable contributions; which organization will replace Cycles for Change? It was suggested to cut back contributions to 50% of what was given last year. After discussion, a motion was made by John to drop Cycles for Change and give 100 dollars each to Full Cycle Bike Shop, Express Bike Shop, and Recovery Cycle and drop other contributions to 50% of last years contributions. This was seconded by Bob. There was one opposition. The motion passed.
Mike took the kitchen utensils and paper products and donated them. Some shelves and storage bins are left. Mike thinks the club can go to a storage unit half the size of what is currently being used.
Halloween Solo Ride
Mike stated the longer route is currently in limbo as the fairgrounds might be closed. There is a detour available if fairgrounds will not be open.
It was decided not to open the club to group riding at this time.
Ann told the board another store will be opened again soon for ordering sweatshirts.
The route detailing local black history will go back up on the calendar again.
