We’ve scheduled the annual CBRC Dinner/Business meeting for December 10, 2010 at Bucca di Beppo. Starting at 6pm.
We’ll cover important issues- elections for the board, race promotion plans for 2011, overview of 2010, and awards for members.
Between now and then Eric will be accepting nominations for the four board positions - President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer. To nominate someone please email the list serve with your nominations. Nominations must be seconded. Of course, there’s always an opportunity to nominate/second at the meeting as well.
On that note, we’d like to also let the club know that Eric won’t be running for president again. He has greatly enjoyed the opportunity to steer CBRC over the last 4 years, but with his developing law practice he clearly no longer has the necessary time to devote to CBRC. Please join us in expressing our gratitude for his tireless service to the club all these years.
Danny will also not be seeking a third term as Secretary. For more detailed information on the duties of the four elected officer positions in the club, see our by-laws.
If you are interested in running or have any additional questions about what the positions entail please contact Eric, Danny, Liz or Harry.
LATE BREAKING NEWS:
Due to overwhelming demand for Cat 5 race spots, the Capital Region Road Race is now offering a Category 4/5 field to compliment the sold out Cat 5 field. If you are a Cat 5 racer and have been closed out of the Cat 5, you can now register for the 4/5 field at http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?eventid=10509.
We still need a few more corner marshals to pull this off properly. PLEASE contact Paul McDonnell to volunteer. All club members are expected to volunteer at at least one CBRC event each year. If you haven’t stepped up yet, here’s your opportunity.
