May 2012 Meeting Minutes

Bill provided details on the new IMBA sponsored jersey program. Men’s and Women’s designs are available for $60 with $10 of the purchase price coming back to the chapter and $1 going to IMBA. Sign-up is available on the SORBA Woodstock website.

The decsision has been made to start a Time Trial series for the three Blanket’s Creek trails for summer 2012. Details are being worked on and will be announced shortly.
