Meeting called to order ate 6:17
Dan Moved the December minutes be approved, Seconded by Michael. Motion passed
Treasurer report: $40 less than last month
Dan mentioned that he has an idea for a fifth board member, but will wait until next month to give more information.
Dan Moved we keep the current slate of officers as is. Brian seconded. Motion passed.
Board retreat. We discussed having it and the consensus was to have it. Topics included membership (do we go for a lot of members?) and events. (we later scheduled it)
Speaking of events, Dan is planning a gravel bike ride and planning is far along. He mentioned there may be sponsors and/or donations and minimal expenses. He is not asking for DRBC money now, mainly he wants to use the DRBC as a conduit. He volunteered to be the chair of the events committee.
We then discussed events DRBC could host and/or sponsor. They include (but are not limited to) Labor Day bike rides (e.g. history ride) held more often, Bike Anywhere challenges (e.g. tour da java, bike to parks), a sub 24 hour overnight. We thought maybe we could do a “Bike Soup” type event.
We also discussed vents we could be facilitators for. Examples would include bike rodeos and day rides. We should come up with a check list of items so that we can consistently inform folks who ask us how to do these.
Dan mentioned it has been a while and we should host another Hub event bringing together organizers of bike events (e.g. June Dairy Days) and also include bike shop folks and the ORA. Each could give a 5-minute talk about what they do. He made a motion to have an event with possibly DRBC getting food – details to be determined later. (I’m not sure if there was a motion, but there was agreement to go ahead)
Meeting adjourned at 7:06
