At the Tour de Paws ride on September 10th, the FW will have a table set up before and after the ride for a membership drive. If you join on this day, you will be getting from this day until the end of 2017, so basically 3 ½ months of membership free. We have members to cover before the ride…if you can volunteer to sit at the table after the ride, please contact [email protected]  Thank you!

Dave Coggins is heading up the annual Beach Ride and has requested funds to help support the riders.

There are 22 cyclists (3 non-members) and we were shown a breakdown of expenses. A motion was made to donate the funds, and it was approved by all.

Karl discussed his last Corporate Bike ride. There were 9 riders, but he is still hopeful that this will reach more cyclists who have not found groups to ride with. He will still continue to work on this.

Planning for the Christmas party is beginning. Cheri will call 3 venues and get prices on reservations.

We will discuss more after this initial step.

Larry Hart- currently have 170 members. Went over budget…FCA 15K, FW 60K

Andrew- cyclocross 1st series begins Sept 10th in Duncan Park

Charles- reminded us about the Flight of the Dove ride this Saturday. A great ride if you have never
done it!

Paul- PCC meeting in Columbia did not go very well. They will have to reintroduce the bill in Nov, thanks in large part to Senators Corbin and Loftis who did all they could to squash the bill at the last minute.

On a tragic note, while in Columbia at these meetings, a fellow cyclist lost his life to a drunk driver.

Meeting adjourned.
