BBC Meeting Details
BBC Meeting Ideas Needed for 2013
BBC President, Pat Hanson is looking to the membership for some new ideas for a meeting to be held in the southwestern part of the state near Janesville in the Rock County area.
The idea is to have more regular meetings held outside of the Milwaukee area or Eastern part of the state. Our members are spread throughout the state and beyond, which makes it a priority to vary our meeting locations. Most members are willing to take on a destination ride that is within 100 miles or so one-way from their homes. To do this we need to find an interesting place to meet and something to see or tour after the regular meeting is held.
If any member can step forward with an idea and is willing to coordinate the logistics, Pat would like to know. Please contact Pat Hanson or any board member with your ideas. Click on the contact page link above to email your suggestions. We really need volunteers from the membership to make our future meeting well attended and successful. Put on your thinking caps and give us a hand in making the 2013 events of the BBC fantastic and memorable.
|MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT|
Well here we are again, the MFH is over the calendar is starting to come together and I have my first opportunity to say howdy and put out a little information.
First let me thank you for continuing your membership, second lets talk a little about what you get for your dues. The big thing for this year is the Rally registration, one of the things I disliked about the pre-registration process was that Members paid the same as non-members. Well we fixed that. Due to the continuing efforts of the Board to get the most bang for our buck we were able to reduce the price of the Rally for members by $5.00. There's a catch though isn't there always.
You have to be a paid Member when you register, that means if you normally pay your membership at the Rally to get the discount you'll need to renew before or when you pre-register. The first question we had about this was "what about spouses?", so to take care of that we are allowing each Member to have one guest at the $40.00 price tag. Now five bucks is not a lot but I figured it's better than paying the same as the guy who doesn't support the Coop. year round. Here's the down side if you don't pre-register the price at the gate has gone up to $55.00. Tracking shows that over 95% of the Members that come to the Rally pre-register so this should just be a savings to all but a very few and hopefully we can get them to pre-register also.
As your looking at the calendar you'll see that there are a few new events for this year, including a few overnighters. It's looking to be a great year and if the drought continues we'll all be paying more for food but riding on dry roads again all summer. Our kick off this year again will be with the SCMG in Madison, if you missed this last year you missed a real blast. Al please give me a ring I'd like to set something's up.
Well for those who saw me last at the Rally I'm glad to say that I'm back up and walking, and thanks for all the well wishes. I really hope that I don't go flying of the thing again this year. Work in the shop on sponsored racer ex-Prez Dave's 500 Triumph is coming along well and we're just about done with all the frame work and moving into the engine. The plan is to be at little Talladega at the end of March, but we will have to see how well the pay checks do. Dave is real good about posting our progress on Facebook if you'd like to follow along. My 750 BSA is pretty much ready to hit the track again, though I am working on a new tank the old one was split open during the oops. Honestly I think were both looking to have an event free year, but then it wouldn't be racing would it.
I believe I can say that as an organization we are very healthy right now and are looking forward to a lot of riding this season. I hope to see a lot more of you this year, come out and enjoy one of these great rides we have planned.
