Constitution Changes Proposed - voting will occur at March 7 meeting
Constitution Changes Proposed - voting will occur at March 7 meeting

The Tulsa Bicycle Club Executive Board is proposing a change to the Club's Constitution to make membership dues more equitable for solo versus family memberships.

Currently the Club has a single membership type; Family.  All members of a single household are included in a membership, whether you're single, or a family of five.  Until recently, there really wasn't much difference in the incremental cost of solo versus family membership, but with rising insurance costs, the single membership type arrangements has become more significant.  For any membership where more than two individuals are identified, the Club pays twice the insurance it pays for a single person.  

So, the Club's Executive Board is proposing a change to Article III (Membership), Section 1 as follows:
Current Section 1 wording:  There Shall be a single membership classification.  A membership shall include all members of an immediate family or household.
Proposed Section 1 wording:  The Executive Board may propose several membership classifications, which shall be approved at the March general meeting.

Changes are also proposed to our "Rules of Procedure" adding the following two clauses:
4. Membership Classifications.  There shall be two membership classifications, single and family.  A family membership shall include all members of an immediate family or household.
5. Dues.  Dues for 2019 shall be $20 for a single membership and $25 for a family membership.


The Executive Board believes these changes will make the membership and dues structure more equitable among our membership and will place us in a better position to consider future membership type and dues structure changes as necessary.

These changes will be voted on at our March General Meeting; approval by a majority of those members present will be necessary for them to take affect.

Please address any questions you may have to Club President, Mike Schooling, or Vice President, Wayne Mark.  We'll be happy to share the rationale considered in proposing these Club governance changes.

 Annual Lasagna Ride and Swap Meet

 
Annual Lasagna Ride and Swap Meet

When:  March 9, 2019
             
Ride at 9:30am
Where:  St Pius X Church, 1717 E 75th E Ave
             Lunch served beginning at 11:30am

Every year to begin the spring riding season, the Tulsa Bicycle Club hosts a ride and swap meet complete with Lasagna and whatever sides, salads, and deserts you members elect to bring along. There no cost associated with this event.

The Lasagna luncheon follows a 25-mile or so ride around town from St Pius X church and school. The ride starts at 9:30am and lasagna will be served beginning at 11:30am.

And if a ride and lunch weren't enough, there's more!

Head to your closet, dresser drawer and spot in the garage where your old or little used bicycle paraphernalia tends to accumulate and drag it out. Bring it to the Lasagna Ride and SWAP MEET and make a buck or two or just give it away to clear space at home (for new stuff?). After you ride and eat lasagna, browse the "stuff" others have brought to "swap" and pick up some bike bling for cheap ... what is clutter in one member's garage is just the thing another member has been wanting to have, so it's a win-win!

For more info and all of the details in one place, including a map to St Pius Church and a map of the short ride we'll be taking, see the Lasagna Ride web page by clicking here! 

Hope to see you there on March 9th ...
