July 2012 Meeting Minutes

Jay Wilkes opened the meeting with the announcement of the completion of the new Explorer Trail bridge that connects the 2nd and 3rd loops. Special thanks again to Dan Thornton at Free Flite Bikes for the $10,00 donation for the building of the 3rd loop. We will be arranging a photo op and an article in IMBA’s Enews to herald the completion and opening of the full, 3 loop Explorer Trail. Bill Blount is working on the signage. 

Jay also shared that the netting for the top of the wall ride is purchased and Tim and Brett are working on constructing the uprights to attach the netting to the top of the wall. Completion of this project is expected by the end of the summer. 

Jay continued with a discussion on upcoming events. Malanda has formed an Events Committee to organize the many events in the coming months. Volunteers are needed! Upcoming events include the Georgia Games, the two remaining Time Trials, and the 6 Hour Race. There will not be a monthly work party in July. 

Bill provded an update on the custom chapter jerseys. There are three weeks until the deadline for ordering. We have enough orders for the men’s style but still need 7 more women to sign up for that jersey to be a go. 

The parking lot renovation is to begin in September. 

Jay closed the meeting.
