July 2012 Club Meeting

Jul 7, 2012 – Today's RCB monthly meeting packed Susie's yet again. After the treasurer's report (plenty of money to fund all planned 2012 events) and membership report (prompt renewals are always appreciated), President Gordy opened the floor to new business.

First up was Phil Challinor who rode his heavily modified BMW (actually it looks like a Yamaha) across the country and back raising money for Friends of NICU, an organization that stepped up with support for Phil and Jamie during the birth of their daughter, Amelia. After the presentation, Gordy made a motion to donate $100 of club funds to Friends of NICU and the motion carried by acclamation.

On a more somber note, Dan Goodenough stopped by to thank RCB for the outpouring of support and donations from RCB members. Dan is the son of Bret Goodenough who died on his 1150RT in traffic this May. Dan, like his father, is an avid rider, although his heavily modified BMW looks a lot like a Buell.

There was also mention of ATGATT (All the gear, all the time). Two of our members had accidents this month in which full gear played a huge part. There's activity in our forum if you would like to read it.

After a quick reminder about upcoming Yerington and Cloverdale events (expect updates soon), the meeting moved to the important business segment (the raffle) and then to the club ride. Today's destination will be Jax at the Tracks in Truckee. Jax at the Tracks is a featured “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” location if you're a fan of the show.

Everybody else went to A&S for … doughnuts and coffee. Our next meeting is August 4th followed by a club ride to Genoa … and Yerington. Put it on your calendar now!
