4. Additional Items of Interest

Johnny Grabowski - proposing the possibility of having a sports photographer present at 1 designated club touring ride to photograph club members on their bikes and scenic action shots while riding (not unlike professional photos taken at some out of town ride events). The idea would be that the club would arrange for the photographer (or hire them for a fee if necessary) so that club members would be entitled to the photos at either no charge (or greatly reduced charge). This would also provide the club with additional photos for marketing purposes.

It was proposed that we first approach Luis DeVeyra before exploring other options.
