Since the ride was on a Sunday, maybe this resulted in low turnout? I was busy working in the yard and was envious of those who had the opportunity to ride. Maybe next year.

I wonder where people went that day? I was working that day and passed by A&S in the morning and there were probably only 5 RCBers there. I thought most everyone was at the ride. Must be out of town then.

RCB Forum - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 12:41pm
We are a few days away from elections, and we still need a secretary and Board member. Please send me a note if you are willing to volunteer.

If being secretary is not appealing, I'll become secretary if someone wants to be president.
