COORDINATOR REPORT: (Belinda McKinney) Belinda had everyone introduce themselves, as we had several guests. Belinda talked about E15, E10, non-ethanol and how it works at the gas pump. You need to check if it’s a designated hose and if not, what was pumped prior to you.  So beware of exactly what you are putting into your gas tank.

AMBASSADOR AT LARGE: Keith McKinney- not present

SECRETARY REPORT / CORRESPONDENCE:  (Kerrie/Clark Anderson) No report

SAFETY COORDINATOR: (Karen Stewart) – Karen talked about risk acceptance of riding.  Some of the reasons are more vulnerable, visibility, judgment is a lot more critical and balance.  Karen asked what we do to lessen our risk out on the roads; how do we assess and manage our risk?  Comments were: go slower, good maintenance, good riding habits (practice emergency skills), pay attention, always have a way out, good gear, don’t ride impaired. Definition of impairment is to make worse.  It’s not just alcohol.  It’s pain meds, fatigue, weather, old age…..

LEGISLATIVE:  (Dave Cazel) –  Anti profiling was defeated in the Senate by one vote.  The distracted driving bill was also defeated, due to its complexity. 
On the national level, US Congress passed a resolution for anti profiling.  There’s nothing binding in this, but it raises the level of conversation on a national scale that says we are not going to be discriminated against or profiled because of what we wear which is a matter of practicality.
