The DC Randonneurs annual meeting will take place at the Glen Echo Town Hall on Saturday, January 23rd at 3:30 pm. As was the case last year, please park at Glen Echo Park parking lot. Directions and more details on the meeting will be sent/posted a few days before it takes place.
As usual, the meeting will review last year’s financial results. We’ll discuss next year’s brevet schedule and volunteer needs. We need to adopt a budget for next year. We’ll discuss club administrative issues, such as further work to improve the website. We’ll recognize volunteer and club member achievements. Finally, three Board members complete their term of office at this meeting–me, George Winkert, and Chris Mento–though none of them are term limited off the Board. The Board has yet to discuss the nomination procedure; this will be announced later.
If there is an agenda item that you would like to be considered for the meeting, please email me &/or the Board.
The Annual Meeting 106Km Populaire will be held (not surprisingly) on January 23rd, starting at 8 a.m. from the Glen Echo Park parking lot. More details will be sent/posted, closer to the ride date. A populaire follows essentially the same rules as a brevet, but is shorter. Plus, you can get a populaire pin. So to all of you with incomplete medal collections, this is your chance to complete it with a populaire pin!
The route is broadly similar to last year’s annual meeting ride. Starting from Glen Echo, it follows parallel to the Potomac until Seneca Creek State Park, where it turns north toward Hyattstown. Returning on different roads, it controls in Poolesville, before rejoining the original route at Seneca Creek and following back down the Potomac to Glen Echo. Probably about 5000 feet of climbing, using last year’s ride as a guide.
President, DC Randonneurs
