November President’s Message

Hello members!
I’d like to thank Mary Anderson, Jayne Perryman, Fire Captain Gene Parks
and the Cal Fire team for their informative presentations on fire prevention
and planning. I think everyone in attendance at the meeting took away
helpful information to use.
We just had our Galloping Goblin poker ride this last weekend. What a
great turnout we had!! We had over 30 riders and numerous riders dressed
in costume. The weather also cooperated with a pleasant 70+ degrees and
a nice breeze. Some folks participated for the first time and expressed how
much fun they had! A big thanks to all the members who helped with the
tasks needed to pull this event together. It definitely takes a village!! Great
job everyone.
Our next general meeting is November 9th. This is a very important
meeting that shouldn’t be missed. We will be taking final nominations for
several board positions that will be open for 2019. We need to fill four
major positions: President, Vice President, Membership and Treasurer.
The existing board members holding these positions will be stepping down
and not running for 2019. Some of these offices have been held by these
board members for several years. It is time for other members to step
forward and take a leadership role in the club. The outgoing board
members will be available to help the new officers so please don’t be
nervous about taking one of these roles. NOTE: If these positions are not
filled, the possibility of the club disbanding is very likely. You need to have
officers to keep a club viable and active. Please come to the November
meeting with ideas to help resolve this issue.
Our last meeting of the year will be our annual Christmas meeting on
December 14th. We are planning our usual Christmas potluck and silent
auction along with some new activities currently in the works. We will also
have our year end prize drawing and you must be present to win. Don’t
want to miss out on some really nice prizes this year so make sure to mark
your calendars to save this date!
I will leave you with two relevant quotes for this month:
“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or
accept the responsibility for changing them” – Denis Waitley
Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try – Anonymous
Keep Riding!
