2017 Potomac Pedalers Annual Meeting Recap

The Potomac Pedalers Annual Meeting was held Sunday, December 3. About 145 members attended, filling our normal meeting spot at the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Our theme for the meeting was "Adventures on a Bike." Barry Wood, our guest speaker, dazzled us with his tales on biking 2500 miles through Eastern Europe - without any pre-planned reservations. He had some great stories to tell.

Kudos to all our sponsors: Adventure Cycling, Bike Virginia, DC Bicycling Concierge, Far & Away Cycling, Lifetime Fitness, and Senior Cycling. Club members enjoyed learning about the different adventure biking and related companies. Bike Virginia gave the club a certificate for a free Bike Virginia weekend registration. All attending members put their names in the hat. The winner was Gordon Kit. Congratulations, Gordon. Enjoy the ride!

Members voted on several ExCom open positions. Our new board members are:

  • Ed Hazelwood - Member-at-large
  • David Whitaker - Recording Secretary
  • Anne Hyman - Vice Chair, Special Events

Still missing is a candidate for Vice Chair, Back Roads Century. Anyone interested please contact Deb Reynolds.

Also voted on and approved were these changes to the by-laws of the club.

Finally, the 2018 budget was reveled. Hopefully, in 2018 we will have a positive bottom line.

Thank you to everyone who attended and thank you for preparing delicious dishes to share for the potluck.


A Thank You to Our Sponsors!
