August Club Meeting and Ride

Aug 3, 2012 - There appeared to be two open seats this morning so it wasn't an overflow crowd, but it still took Gordy's cowbell ringing to call to order. First up our treasurer advised us that the recent trailer purchase put a dent in our finances, but it had been budgeted for and we were still in good financial shape. Nevertheless he used the occasion to ask members to renew and pay promptly, and to keep moving away from checks and cash. At present, roughly 75% of our members are renewing with Credit Cards and PayPal.

Membership reported a small increase in membership bringing us back over 200, new member Daniel Goodenough received his new membership badge and all of today's guests were introduced and welcomed.

There were brief descriptions of our new trailer and a call for donations and support for next Saturday's Christmas in August visit to the Sacramento Children's Receiving Home. The hat was passed and generous members contributed a little over $150.

And then the important part - The raffles!

With business out of the way, 40-50 riders saddled up for the 3-4 hour ride to Yerington (via Genoa) for RCB's 13th annual Ride and Bowl.

Great morning!
