Welcome extended to all in attendance including Steve Pequinot, Mona Will, Kent Ellis, Roianne Smolinski, Andrea Egeland, John Grabowski, Phil Snider, Mona Will, Jack Campbell, Tania Glass, Shane Powell, and Steve Sowers

2. Passage of Minutes
Passage of September meeting minutes

3. Officer Reports
Jennifer Altherr, Secretary
September minutes passed earlier in the meeting

Patrick Stelte, President
Megan Short at Sweetwater emailed Patrick today about the club’s annual party.  Previously Megan had said the building is closing at 8pm on Fridays.  This meant if we had our holiday party there the party would be from 5-7:30pm.   Megan says circumstances have changed and on January 10 they can host the club party after business hours.  Patrick already made a commitment to have the party at Parkview's Mirro Center, for Saturday January 4.  Having the party at the Mirro Center past 9pm isn't a problem.  Patrick opened it up to discussion on what to do given we have two venue options.  Patrick said the prices of renting the venues was very similar, and Mirro Center caters in-house so we wouldn't have to outsource the catering.   There was discussion about trying the Mirro Center this year and then next year we have two venues to make choices from, and the option of having the party on a Saturday instead of a Friday will allow club members to not have to rush to get there after work.  The decision was to stay with Mirro Center for this year's party.

Hugh Smith, Treasurer
Revenues of $0; Expenditures included Festival tour expenses and cyclocross expenses; Race Team balance unchanged; Cyclocross Project balance reflects negative balance due to CX expenses; Franke Project balance unchanged.

Doug Wintin, Touring
Steve Souers opened a discussion on if it is necessary to have designated ride leaders on club rides for insurance coverage.  Steve spoke with the club's insurance agent and was told from an insurance standpoint it isn't a requirement.  This may give the touring director a bit more flexibility for getting rides scheduled with knowing there doesn’t have to be pre-designated ride leaders present for each pace group at each ride.  There was discussion from those present about:
How to handle incident reports; how groups would follow the pre-approved route without a leader; concern about if we don't designate ride leaders from the various ride groups, then people who ride slower than A pace may not come because they don't think there will be anyone to ride with; having Facebook commentary for each ride for who is going to be there so people can see who will be there; having a ride host for each ride; next year posting every ride as A,B,C,D and then membership can decide who will ride each pace.

Discussion of the club getting a Ride with GPS account with routes any club member could download the routes onto their electronic device or phone.

Discussion of E pace group for week-end tours.   Patrick explained no none wanted to take responsibility for E rides this year. He stated weekend E rides could start at any location, time and place.  The ride must have a pre-determined route and be approved by the touring director. 
Doug said there are still a lot of questions we will have to work out if we are going to make a policy change about designating rides and ride leaders

Steve Sowers:  Plan is to do Show N Goes similar to past years.  If you have any tweaks to request send me a message or an email.  Starts first week-end in November, 12pm at either Homestead H.S. or Arcola at 12:15pm with Suburban Bethlehem pick up at 12pm. 

Dave McComb, Racing
For the team we have a new member, tri-athlete Shannon Linder.
5th week of Wednesday CX practice series.  It takes 4 hours to set up the course, 1 hour to tear down 500 stakes each week. 
Team Neighborlink has the CX practice photos on their website for the prior week, 20-30 people each week average.
Talked with Ray Vasquez about the NE Indiana Composite Mountain Bike group for young riders to see if there is a way we could work with them to be a resource for them and absorb the team into our club. 
Time trial series - We had great weather for the last event.  13-14 average for each event.  The participants talked about what we could do to get more people to come out. Dave said he'd like to get a universal timing device and some signage.
Newspaper article - There was an article in the newspaper last week with a photo of Dave staking the CX course. 

Randy Rozewicz, Off-Road
Franke Park trails are in good shape.  We are getting good turnout for trail maintenance days.  We are going to work on some trail signage.
Franke Toolbox - Randy follow up about the tool box kit at Franke.  Randy is concerned about vandalism, and we need to put it in a very strategic place that is wide open.  Randy's projected date to get the project completed with purchasing the toolkit is end of this month. 
Lots of people are out riding the Franke Trails and he's receiving quite a bit of feedback from the trail users with messages of thanks for the work on the trails

The last club newsletter was sent out today.

Mike Heyes, Webmaster (absent)

4. Additional Items of Interest
 Jersey ride wrap up - 62 participants.   Very weather day with sunshine, mid 80's temperature.  Almost all food was eaten.  There were $16.35 donations and $20 in sock purchases.
September 28th Saturday club ride, Brian Meyer passed on a $50 donation.  The donation originated from someone who had locked their keys in their car, club members helped, and the motorist gave $50 for helping get their car open.

Jennifer Altherr and Amy Copeland - Asked for $10 a month to reimburse the ride leaders for expenses for prizes for a new format they began in September for City Tours.  Motion was made by Patrick to cover expenses up to $10 a month, all approved. 

Bicycle Indiana - Mona showed the 2019 Resource Guide a continuation of last month's Toot Our Own Horns discussion.  There are full, half and quarter pages for ad space available.  This year for our Festival Event we did $1 per ride format which meant $250 went to Bicycle Indiana.  Kent's analysis of the post ride survey indicated very few riders saw the ad for the ride.  Patrick said the festival tour committee will discuss and bring back their recommendation to the club at an upcoming meeting.  Ad space quotes:
Cost to be a Bicycle Indiana club: 
Basic organization club $100
Bronze $250
Basic organization member
Quarter page $540
Half page $900
Ad that is not part of a $1 per rider program - interior page of the guide for Bicycle Indiana non-member:  Half page $1000; Quarter page $600
A $1 ride program for non-member:
Quarter page $450 (plus the $1/ride)

Kent:  Working with Amy on online club membership registration with current entity BikeReg.  Kent has set up Red Podium that hasn't gone live yet.  He says Red Podium is easier to use, less expensive, and we can sell merchandise on there as well as have a merchandise store.  Club members could sign up for a membership and at the same time sign up for the Festival Tour.  Amy reviewed the site and said it looks good.    Mona said on our newsletters and website we'll need to change the BikeReg info to Red Podium.  Kent said he will once it goes live. 

Scott Tomsits will be organizing club rides on Zwift this winter.  He talked with Markus Wind about the Zwift League schedule so it doesn't conflict.

- Discussion of the club freezer - Dave Lehman offered to sell the freezer to the club for $50.  After discussion the decision was made to let Dave keep the freezer and the club will buy a new one when we need it next year. 

Hugh Smith, Treasurer (absent, Report by Patrick)

Doug Wintin, Touring
- New route in October will start at St. Joe Hessen Cassel School and travel to Wilshire, OH

Dave McComb, Racing
- Cyclocross practice races at Franke are going well.  They are held Wednesdays with a 5:00 PM warm up, and 6:00 PM start time.  For last night's practice race 29 showed up.   
Dave purchased new cyclocross stakes to mark the course.   
- There was discussion about coordinating Franke trail work days with Neighborlink and swapping out NITRO content in the Franke Trail kiosk with 3RVS content.   
- Neighborlink contacted the club about either 3RVS or Neighborlink purchasing a bike tool stand for the Franke kiosk.  Motion was made for 3RVS to purchase to the bike toolbox for Franke Trails and put the club name on it.  Estimated cost is $275.  The club will take responsibility of replacing tools if they are stolen, until the club decides at a future date to no longer replace the tools.  Dave McComb will research the cost and different types of tool kits.  Motion passed to purchase the tool kit at a cost of up to $500.  Pamela and Tim will assist Dave McComb with installation.   Club will pay to add the club's name to the tool kit. Dave will coordinate location with Randy Rozewicz
- Final time trial series will be September 24 at 6:00 PM, with official start time of 6:30 PM

Randy Rozewicz, Off-Road (absent)

Publicity, Pamela Fennell
Mona - Tooting our own horns discussion - Bicycle Indiana is looking for sponsors to place ads in their resource guide, who lists all rides and bicycle friendly businesses.  To support Bicycle Indiana our club has done a Bicycle Indiana ride in which $1 of the entry is given to support Bicycle Indiana.  Individually, people can purchase Bicycle Indiana license plates to help support Bicycle Indiana.  Mona proposed that 3RVS buy an ad in the resource guide to show what we offer as a club and our website address.  The ad would run for a year.  The cost is yet to be determined.  Kent Ellis said no 3RVS festival tour survey respondents said they found the tour in the bicycle resource guide.  Others said they have used the resource guide to find bike rides.  Patrick suggested that instead of giving $1 for our ride to Bicycle Indiana, we could purchase the ad.  Those present decided to pursue the possibility of buying the ad, and when we have the cost of the ad at next month's meeting we will discuss further.     

Amy Copeland, Membership
Total Memberships 307; 136 family; 171 individual
64 of the members were not members for the 2018 season

Scott Tomsits, Newsletter
The last club newsletter was completed and sent out on time.
 
Mike Heyes, Webmaster (absent, Report by Patrick)
- Patrick shared that as of December 31, 2019 Mike has decided to step down from the club webmaster role.  Mike will continue with the role until December 31, 2019, and the club will need to find a new webmaster. 
- The club’s web domain payment is due and Mike doesn't want to put it on his personal credit card since he is stepping down from the webmaster role.  Discussion was how to pay for the web domain.  Patrick said we will investigate having the club's PNC account directly pay for the domain fees.
- Red Podium - Kent proposed moving the club membership from Bike Reg to Red Podium in the future.  Red Podium was used for this year's Festival Tour and it is less expensive than Bike Reg.  If we do switch to Red Podium, Amy Copeland said it would be best to do it before January 1 when club members start renewing their memberships.  Amy proposed to look into buying a multi-year agreement for domain name and hosting in order to get a discount. 

4. Additional Items of Interest
- 9th Annual Jersey Ride - September 21 at Roanoke Park with 9:30 AM check in and  10:00 AM ride start time.  Information has already gone out to everyone via email to get RSVPs.  This will be Patrick's last Jersey ride as the club president.  Jade Armstrong has volunteered to assist Patrick with setting up the food. 

- Scott - September Strava Challenge - several people asked if the challenge was going to happen. Steve did a great job to make the September challenge happen of the last 5 years.  The challenge won't happen this year, as it entails tracking 70-100 people's mileage and updating it on a regular basis.  It would also entail Amy Copeland purging any non-members.  Pamela proposed doing an October challenge based on people tapering off riding in October, and we are already in September so she feels it is too late.  Doug will discuss what would be involved over the next couple of days and determine if he will have some sort of a challenge. 

- Post Meeting Update:  With the help of Steve Pequignot under the advisory capacity of Doug and Patrick, the September Touring Challenge will happen with starts date of September 2nd and end date of October 1st.
- Johnny - Sometimes people ask about purchasing club apparels at rides.  The clothing is almost all sold out.  Patrick said we need to come up with a new jersey design over the winter.  The club anniversary jersey design won't be ordered again.   Post Meeting Update:  Scott has stepped forward and organized another 50th Anniversary purchased through our Facebook page and club e-mail address:  newsletter@3rvs.com
