Victory Riders Calgary
March 22, 2018 Meeting
President Kelly in the chair.
9 members present.
Alex, who has been following us on Facebook, showed up at the meeting as a new member.
Tune Up Ride
Past Prez Ronny said the Spring Tune Up Ride (parking lot, slow manoeuvring around cones) is tentative for Mother’s Day (May 13.) We have approval to use the property again and insurance coverage is being arranged for both May 12 and 13. Course details and additional sessions will be confirmed with the instructor when he gets back from vacation.
The April Meeting – April 19 – has been set for the First Aid information session. An expert has been approached who will give us a crash course in emergency road side first aid (what to do until the EMTs arrive.) Space is limited, so after the spots have been offered to club members, if there is still space, we invite the Indian Riders and perhaps others as well.
Two Wheel Sunday
James said extra help would be needed to put on the club-sponsored Show & Shine at Two Wheel Sunday (June 3) this year. Volunteers are needed to work with James to collect prizes, locate the trophies, organize bikes on site, hand out ballots and collect and count ballots. A site walk through is planned for March 24 with James and DrifterDon selecting a site for the Show & Shine.
Dates and options for this year’s Cannonball Run are posted on the Rides & Events section of the club website – www.VictoryRidersCalgary.com.
Dates for the Garage Sale were discussed with June looking like the most viable time; exact date to be confirmed. James will confirm this with Cycle Works. Kelly said he would look after organizing a hamburger barbecue at the event.
The club had a freewheeling discussion on overnight rides with Kalispell Montana and Kaslo/Nakusp as possible destinations. Dates will be firmed up at the upcoming meetings.
Next meeting is April 19 at Cycle Works Calgary. The meeting will be at 6:30 sharp with the First Aid Information Session scheduled for 7 pm.
