-Racing report by Jerry as shared by Kathy. It was reported that we have had 2 events of physical violence and aggressive riding at 2 club sponsored training rides. Also verbal abuse and un-sportsmanlike language has been reported at club training rides. With a lot of input from members present it was decided that a “code of conduct” is needed for club sponsored rides. This topic will be addressed during the off season to allow a full meeting to assure proper handling.
-Newsletter report by Kathy. Combining news for Nov/Dec and Jan/Feb issues. Kathy ask for any member news or season ride highlights to be sent by the 18th of each month.

Publicity report by Wendy. Wendy shared a poster “A” frame, sandwich board design that could be used at club events. A 22 X 28 poster frame and graphics would cost $142.99. The advantage would be ease in setting up where the banner cannot be used. Tim made a motion to purchase 1 set Patrick seconded, vote carried. Wendy to share design choices at next meeting.
-Additional items of interest.
Many new members have asked for Jerseys in sizes the club no longer has. Further discussion to follow in deciding an amount to order. Kathy presented an idea of club up-scale t-shirts for everyday wear. This would be polyester Sport-Tek shirts that would be sold at reasonable prices to members.
-Chilly Challenge. Greg Perrigo has an interest in helping to promote the event. Greg has been a regular rider in the event. Greg feels that the public needs more awareness of the event and wants to help promote the clubs mission to cycling, as well as the Mayor and City of Fort Wayne’s mission of a healthier more active life style through events such as the clubs ride.
Patrick will ask Greg to attend the November meeting to present ideas to the membership.
Wendy reminded the club that a director is needed for the Chilly Challenge.
-Meeting adjourned 8:55 pm.
