Jay opened the meeting up by mentioning the break in at the club house. Thieves were able to make off with our trailer, 2 chainsaws, blower, trailer, Dakine bag, radios, and a few more items. Local authorities have been notified and an investigation has been started. In the mist of this loss of equipment brought great strength from our community. Within a day of announcing the break in on facebook, over 5,000 people were reached and people from all over contacted us wanting to help. We received Paypal donations, replacement equipment Mountain Goat Adventures raffled off prizes at their races, and local businesses have approached us about fundraising to replace the stolen equipment. The support from our community has been truly remarkable and it gives everyone in SORBA faith in humanity.
