Occasionally, but not quite, WEEKLY UPDATE

Sunday, March 27, 2016

March 23, 2016 (Wednesday) Joel posted a weekday get-away ride... Larry Nunnery, Mack (five points chapter) and I met him at the Citgo on Jenks road. A nice loopy ride south of Jordan Lake, and lunch at Saxapahaw General Store. Warm sunny day, with spring's glorious greening of the winter landscape... of course that also meant a lot of pollen, but a great day to ride, and of course there was great food, and great conversation.

March 26, 2016 (Saturday) Steve and Mike G, were the only ones to brave the cooler temps (60 degrees) and join me. Another fine day to enjoy the changing of the season. I took an even more circuitous route than "normal... what is a 50 mile ride per google, was a 70 mile ride TO... and almost 100 miles back home. As you have come to expect in greater Raleigh, there was great conversation, and great food... I've heard they either got a new oven, or a new cook, whatever... it was the best food I've had at Aunt Millie's. We all got home well before the holiday traffic took over.

Ride safe... Ride often

Anyone interested in taking on a chapter "leadership role" (ie: Road Captain, Tail Gunner, Ride Leader, Safety Officer, Second Officer, or even First Officer)

If you want to step up go to www.southerncruisers.net/constitution.htm and read what SCRC national expects from officers (and members).

Then read the ride guidelines... www.southerncruisers.net/newriding.htm. They aren't "rules" but guides, but it does explain the role of ride leader better.

Finally, there is the "code of conduct": www.southerncruisers.net/coc.htm

"Road Captain/ride leader" is a good place to start... but you don't have to be a "Road Captain" to lead a ride. Just be willing to step up... You WILL miss a turn... and do a U-turn... everyone does... it's part of the "fun" and who knows... it could lead to a funny "road name".
