Deputy Coordinator Report: no report
Treasurer Report: Available on request.
Secretary Report: No report
Membership Secretary: We have 74 members.
Legislative: Dave Cazel reported that their meeting with Senators actually was making headway. It’s also important that we get involved in supporting our local candidates. Here’s his report;
Bikers Inside the Beltway 2018 Report Tenacity won out in spite of the rain. The trip, in my estimation, was a success.
We arrived early for a day of MRF Board committee meetings and a day for the actual Board meeting. Duane Justus sat in on both and volunteered for a seat on the funds steering committee. Congratulations, Duane, and thanks for getting involved.
Even though I was there, I was appointed interim chair of the Finance committee and appointed to the elections committee. (And I thought you only got volunteered for work if you weren’t around. Guess I was wrong.) That’s a full plate.
The meetings were long but effective and I can assure each of you that the MRF is focused on and moving to the future with motivation and substance. Making a difference on the national stage for Motorcyclist’s rights.
The night before the doorbell ringing, all one hundred fifty plus-bikers met for a planning and coaching session. Just before the meeting was to begin all the cell phones went off: TORNADO WARNINGS. It got black and the rain came down. You couldn’t see across the street. Twenty five minutes later the phones when off again: FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS. That’s how much it rained, and of course, having tried to wait out the rain, Duane and I got caught out in the open. Drenched to the bone and 15 minutes later, we sat in an air conditioned room. Not very smart but at least, having been in meetings the prior two days, we had been fully prepped. Didn’t miss a beat.
