FFBC GENERAL MEETING
General meeting was called to order at 7:45PM.
Race Team Report – Chris Menicou
Chris noted that we are getting close to the end of the race season – last weekend was somewhat of a Grand Finale with the Red Kite Omnium, Masters/Juniors Dist and State Criterium and the Giro de San Francisco Criterium. We had a number of outstanding finishes in those races – see the results below.
There are two more big races before the end of the season, and then we go into the Cyclocross season. Road racing season starts in January.
November is when team members must re-up their membership.
Chris reviewed the following team results and provided the complete results later by email. This is for the last four weeks.

Treasury Report – Julia Walker:
Julia reported $57k in the bank. Last month’s spending was largely donations – all of which were done except Abode. Some paper work is required in that case. There was some minor income – some new memberships.
Ride Coordinator – Dave Fishbaugh:
Dave is focusing on the October calendar. He will be soliciting ride entries via email.
Main general activity this month is the voting of the board members for the next year. A slate of nominees had been put forward at the August meeting, which was comprised of all the existing board members continuing in their existing posts. Luis asked the members present if there were any other new nominees for any positions. There were no additional nominees put forward.
The nominees for the board are then:
|Louis Friedenberg||Vice President|
|Chris Menicou||Race Team Representative|
|Dave Fishbaugh||Co-Ride Coordinator|
The members present then voted on this slate of candidates. There was a unanimous vote to re-elect the candidates.
Luis announced that Eve Ben-Ora will be taking over for Marcella as the Newsletter editor. Eve was at the meeting and said she will be looking to possibly use social media and the website as an alternative approach of using the outside group to create a PDF file. This will be discussed further at the next Board Meeting.
Terri brought up the plan and strategy for jerseys.
At 8:10PM the meeting ended,
with quite a few pizza slices wanting for a member to stop by and eat them. That could (should) be you next time!
