August 11, 2009

Present: J. Harris, D. Parrow, G. Moyer, J. Dewey, B. Luoma, L. Miles, K. Shribbs, M. Lebow (filled in as secretary)

Meeting began at approximately 7 p.m.

Old Business:

Larry Miles, Board reported on the Peach of a Century ride which will be September 27th this year. Everything is coming together. He feels much more comfortable at this time than he did with the Monster Cookie. He has made good progress with Silverton, Jefferson, and Chemeketa CC. He has some sag drivers lined up, but still needs more; he wants a minimum of five because of the size of the course. Steve Sanchez of Kiwanis International is handling the rest stops. A caterer is baking the peach pies this year.

New Business:

Dave Philbrick has agreed to assume responsibility for tracking the ridership in the SBC weekly rides. He needs to upgrade to Access 2007 to take over the existing rides database. In an email, Dave had estimated a cost of $70 - $87 from looking at Amazon. The Board approved a motion for Dave to spend a reasonable amount to upgrade to Access 2007.

Dave’s volunteering to enter weekly rides is meant to be a short term solution. He already does a large amount of work entering people for the event rides. Dave will only enter miles for people who indicate they are club members on the ride sheets. Doug would like to move the rides database to the SBC website. That way ride coordinators and a few other designated individuals can share duty of entering mileage. Individual riders could sign in and see what rides they have done, their mileage, and a mileage ranking. The event rides database could be on the website as well to facilitate sharing the workload. Doug will determine the requirements and get an estimate from the web service provider.

Garry Moyer has already reserved the Cat Cavern at Willamette University for the annual banquet. As usual it will be the last Sunday in January. Garry will let Mark know how much the deposit is and who he should send it to.

JoAnn reported on the Salem Boys and Girls Club (SBGC) development team in training for the Peach ride. Sponsors have provided funds for seven SBGC riders (two of them sponsored by SBC). The SBGC is putting together a bike package including helmet, gloves, etc for the development team. This package may also be available for others.

The team training will begin at an athletic club. SBGC will look to the SBC for help when the team begins riding out on the road.

Tim Sinatra of SBGC is also interested in using the Watermelon ride time slot for a bicycle event if the SBC is not going to put on the Watermelon ride in the future. The board discussed how difficult it is to continually provide 3 event rides per year. Doug moved that Tim be advised that the SBC will not sponsor the 2010 Watermelon and encourage him to organize a broadly based community event in which the SBC will be a participant. The motion passed.

It was suggested that someone write an article for the Spokes about the SBGC development teams’ participation in the Peach. Doug also asked JoAnn to let him know if there is a SBGC link that Tim would like us to link to from our website registration page.

Meeting adjourned.

Salem on Safe Bicycle Riding in Traffic. Gary volunteered to give a sample presentation at the February 2010, General Meeting.

Mr. Perkins said he wanted the Club’s support for his event but was not looking for the Club to provide volunteers or funds.

New Business:

Web Page: Doug Parrow want to spend $2,925.00 to create a Web based database that ride leaders can use to enter the rider mileage. This database would enable club members to review their mileage in a timely fashion and eliminate the reliance on one person and one computer to maintain the rider mileage database.
