The Score Bar and Grill is launching their new “Craft Beer” line and will be tapping 120 craft beers and they would like us to help out on their new venture.

So, for one night only, they will be giving back 10% of everything they sell to the WMMBA!

All we have to do is show up, have some good food and maybe a craft beer(or so) and they will be giving back to us!

To make sure we are hungry and thirsty we will be meeting beforehand at the Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail (WMMBA) for a group ride around 5:30PM.

We’ll have a nice ride and head over to the Score for fun, food and craft beer!

Member Meeting January 9, 2012

tagged as Bass River,Blog,Cannon Township,Community,Grand Rapids,Hardy Dam,Ionia Recreation Area Trail,Owasippe,Plainfield township,Shore Acres,Upper Macatawa,Wahlfield Park,Yankee Springs

In case you weren’t able to attend, here’s a quickie on some of the things we discussed at the meeting.  I’m not big on long formal meeting minutes, so if you need details, contact your favorite board member….better yet, come to the meeting.

New president Kevin Allen gave a recap of happenings in 2011

Yankee Springs Time Trial update – Registration has been open since mid-November. John Anderson is back with his sound system and announcing talents.  Dan Clark will design this year’s 2012 artwork for shirts, glasses and posters.  Youth Cycling will run our kid’s race event for 2012. Gault/RaceMgmt is back as our timing system operators.  As of January 9th we have over 100 pre-registered racers toward our cap of 700 for the 2012 race.  First committee meeting will be sometime in February.

Volunteers needed:  Yankee Springs Time Trial 4/22/12 (funds 40-50% of what we do), State Games of Michigan scheduled for 6/23/12, Trifecta mostly likely 5/20/12 but keep checking to be sure.  Give a shout out to Kevin Allen so he can get you on the volunteer list. (more…)
