June Chapter Meeting

We had another significant turnout for our June meeting following the evening's group ride. Good to see some new faces around the circle too.

Thank you to Prestige Medical Group for sponsoring the evening meal of pizza and salad and for their generous donation of an additional $900 to the Fierce Trail fund! Dr. Anil Yadav, who is an avid rider and member was on hand to introduce his practice to us and to offer SORBA members a free body analysis. Located on Sixes Road, Prestige Medical Group offers plans to help you use health weight, nutrition and exercise towards good health. They incorporate various modalities such as traditional medicine, integrative protocols, holistic care and medical cosmetic procedures towards this goal.

Our President Jay Wilkes was happy to report that funding for the Fierce Trail at Rope Mill Park continues to grow. The moneys contributed to SORBA for the Free-Flite Challenge easily exceeded the goal set by Dan Thronton, Lisa Randall of Mountain Goat Adventures gave us a generous check, MBA has worked hard to collect an impressive amount of donations, and we hope to see more contributions in the coming months. Thanks to everyone who has helped us out.

Blankets Creek Trail Director Gary Moore brought us up to speed on the volunteer hours for the work parties so far this year and mentioned that a few folks have already earned rewards for their work. Look for more news from Gary in our June newsletter.

In the future you'll be seeing meeting minutes from our new Secretary, Derrick Fitzgerald who didn't have enough to do as Assistant Trail Director. Congrats Derrick.

SORBA alumni Scott Stewart stopped by for a visit all the way from his new home base of Texas and it was a great to see him at the meeting.

See you in July!
