September Member Meeting

tagged as Chapter Meeting,Community,Events,Grand Rapids,Group Ride,Member Meetings,Rockford,Wahlfield Park
This months WMMBA member meeting we will be at our newest trail at Wahfield Park 6811 Alpine Ave Nw, Comstock Park, MI 49321!

We currently have about 2-3 miles of trail that needs to be ridden in so, why not throw a bit of a cook out/party and have you great folks do the task?
Wahlfield has some nice topography that we’ve taken advantage of!  Lots of bench cut trail, some bridge work and so far a nice flowing trail.
Simply show up sometime after 6PM, have a nice ride and about 7:30PM we’ll have a quick meeting where you can find more details about the rest of this trail along with some of the other things the WMMBA has up their sleeve.
Plus, we will have the grill fired up and flippin burgers and brats!  And hey, if you got a great side dish to pass, please brings it (not required, but welcomed).
So, bring your friends, your bike, your appitite, a chair (I always seem to forget that one) and your favorite beverage and join us for an evening of riding, food and fun!
Look forward to seeing you there!

There are many opportunities to help build, repair and maintain your favorite trail this year.

If you’ve never been to a trail day, please join us!  While we do some serious work, we always have a lot of fun, which usually is followed up by some fun riding.

“There is something extra special when you ride on a trail that you helped build”  A Quote from a trail day volunteer.

Please go to the event calender for trail day info…see you on the trails!

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…)
