Johnny Grabowski, President

    Concerning the 3RVS constitution amendment proposed at the March, 2020 monthly meeting that would establish Social Media Director as a position in the 3RVS Board of Directors and amend the constitution to account for the revised number of officers. Per section 8.1 of the 3RVS constitution, the amendment was presented in writing at a regular meeting and supported by at least (5) eligible voting members. The amendment was then published in a supplemental newsletter emailed to all current 3RVS members. It was read aloud at a 3RVS meeting and discussed. Finally, the amendment was put to a vote, and was unanimously approved, effectively replacing the former Webmaster position with the new Social Media Director position. Congratulations, Andrea!

        Johnny submitted revised text for the "About 3RVS" page, which was updated
        Updated text for Membership page
        Removed "Group Rides Suspended"� notice from home page
        Updating site with info for Weekend Tours and Weeknight Rides as info received
        Working on getting route files uploaded to site and available to 3RVS members

4. Additional Items of Interest

    Johnny - since 3RVS will not have the income we would have from the cancelled Festival Tour, should we brainstorm ways to generate income for 3RVS in 2020?
        Various ideas discussed, but general feeling was that people are financially strapped and 3RVS is in a strong financial position to sustain this year without Festival Tour revenue
        Other ideas discussed included exploring the idea of a Swap Meet for Spring 2021. Committee to be formed.

5. Good of the Order

    Follow-up on toolkit for Franke Park - an expense approved at previous meeting. Tools have not been purchased - Randy is concerned that there is not a good place to put them that they won't be stolen.
    Andrea brought to Rand's attention that she is aware of some electric poles that were recently removed and available if they'd be useful at Franke. Randy said he would check into getting a trailer to pick them up.
    Re: group riding guidelines - USA Cycling has good group guidelines
