Well, pitchers and catchers will be reporting soon. The 49ers couldn’t quite hold on last Sun. and after the Super Bowl, sports are done for me till baseball fires back up! So…..guess I’ll go for a ride till then.
The weather last Sat. was outstanding and it looked as tho’ the Capt. had a good squad for the club ride around Berryessa to St. Helena following the meeting. Tom Moe posted a couple of pics on the forum. Looks like Berryessa has quite a bit of water in it judging by the pic of the Glory Hole.
Took an informal poll of attending members at the meeting and was happy with the number of riders planning to attend the BMWMOA INT’l in Great Falls, Mt. on June 24th, 25th, 26th. Terry Lee has a coupla routes to event that he will post. He also mentioned when coerced that he may be interested in leading a group northward towards the event. Thx. Terry. Jack K. has volunteered to be the the club point of contact for chartered club camping. Even if you are moteling it at the event we need to know you are there for our list of attending members as it would nice if we could win “Most Members in a Chartered Club attending” as we did in Salt Lake. Because not everyone attends the meetings we will post soon on the forum so we can keep a running count on attendees. Looking forward to this run! It will be fun!
April 24th, 25th, 26th is the Coastal Classic which is shifting to the North coast town of Fortuna. Terry has or will post a number of routes to and around Fortuna. There is contact info under Rides and Events for the Redwood Riverwalk Motel. Reserve your room now. Should be a fun weekend of riding and camaraderie.
Feb. 22nd there will be a swap meet at A&S. Randy and Co. have asked us to once again to perform our culinary magic on burgers and dogs. Calling all chefs to assist me in this event.
Following March’s club meeting we will be holding a Garmin Basecamp GPS class at Jack’s office. The class will begin at 10:30. We will go to A&S following the meeting, then head to the site at 10:00. The Capt. will handle us Droid users with Rich and Terry handling the Apple folks. Bring a laptop and charging cable.
Watch for your Air Med Care renewals and keep your coverage current. 65 bucks is a bargain for this insurance.
The RCB store is open. Buy a hat or a shirt. The prices are very reasonable and the club receives a portion of the sale.
I hope this new year is finding everyone healthy and ready for a busy riding season. We are all members of this club and we all have a voice. Use yours. Have suggestions or concerns or recommendations, talk to me or other club officers and express yourself. The Trinity Spring Classic started as a weekend ride and now it is an event.
Ride Safe, Ride far, and ride often! See ya on the road!
