Jan'19 President's Message


Welcome to 2019! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are looking forward to a viable and successful 2019. We have a lot of fun things planned which are detailed in this newsletter.

Please join us in thanking our outgoing board of directors for all their hard work over the past several years. Thank you Liz Gheen, Patti Garcia, Mike Pinto, Margaret Pare & Sydney Blankenship. Your dedication and commitment have been greatly appreciated.

The board of directors met on Thursday, December 27 to go over 2019 goals & objectives and
the budget. After reviewing the survey that was done early last year and the members’ comments
& suggestions, we have some exciting things planned for this coming year, which is outlined in this newsletter.

One change made is holding our meetings quarterly instead of monthly. Our kick-off meeting will be January 10th in Watsonville to approve the budget and finalize our ride/campout scheduled for 2019. We would greatly appreciate your attendance.

As a membership-based organization, this is your club. As members, your input, suggestions, and participation are appreciated and welcomed. We almost lost our club because of lack of participation so we thank those who stepped up and fought to keep our club going and viable.

I look forward to seeing you at the meetings, on the trail, and around the campfire this coming year.

Sunday Minnich

2019 Board Chair
