A proposal to include aMembership challenge for the month of April. Bring one person to a ride and get them to join the club. People who bring in new members to be recognized in the Chainstay. Twenty five people is a reasonable goal.

Report on jersey design. Still negotiation with Hincapie over the price.
They were able to provide a better price to Marsh Madness and HRC. When questioned, Carlton Corley was unable to explain why his quote was so much higher. He will check with his supervisor and see if they can match the other quotes.

for participation.

Community service possibilities to include a possible bike rodeo to coincide with the Tour de Fort.
We have had great success supporting running events, and these do provide a means for people to participate at any pace or distance. The One City Marathon had a group of fife members supporting the full marathon, and four to six riding the shorter distances. At the Smart Cycling Class, PBA members attending provided useful input to the curriculum and assisted in the bike riding skills portion. Hampton City is interested in having us help with a bike rodeo sometime around the end of April. It was suggested that the bike rodeo be held on Fort Monroe and coincide with the Tour de Fort.

Meeting adjourned at 1500.
