  1. Chuck since they want to attack the entire club with this narrative I think it is time that the club knows the truth. The picture they are painting is lop sided and does not tell the whole story. Why are you and/or other members of the events committee silent? Time to speak up. I'll even provide you with the one sentence email when I reached out to them to help and in return got attacked. Gene

  2. Actually there is always a vote of all members of the event committee, majority prevails.

    I think the real problem, which Chuck and others disagree with, is there needs to be some criteria that everyone understands on all sides. The idea that previous samples/examples provides a roadmap doesn't work for me, Thankfully I'm no longer on the committee.

  3. We cannot keep hashing this out over and over again. And I can't help but think it is playing a part in the current election.

    "Until the deciding members of the board realize that their way is not the only way, I doubt it will be possible for an average LC to gain the event committees approval to hold such an event." 

    I'm not sure what you mean by "the deciding members of the board" the decision is the Events Committee, not the BOD.

    Personally I think for the 20TH we ought to have membership input and maybe a runoff of the top proposals but at the rate we are going we won't have any.

  4. The ride should start on Monday 6/22 in or near San Francisco and end 7/4 on the East Coast, near Staten Island. 

    As I said I'm not the chairman but it should be close to what is below, the Chairman and leg Captains may tailor it somewhat. I know Staten Island is a problem so we started in NJ, I went over before the ride started and came back across the Victory bridge got some seashore, pics of the Bridge, and also the Totten to Perth Amboy ferry which was used before the bridge was built. I also know that San Francisco has become a problem with traffic and hotels. 

    Please contact Chuck Miller is you are interested in being a Leg Captain, not sure about the Chairman. I'll help but cannot be involved in 2020 ride. - Gene

  5. I called Kustomshoppe they looked up 2008 and found the part has been replaced with 2016 part. And just to be sure they checked 2010 part and it too has been replaced by the same 2016 part. So in theory the 2010 should work. Whether or not you will need to tune it is another question but probably not. - Gene

  6. I’m back in Virginia some final pictures of my ride home, leaving at 6AM was a good plan it got too damn warm coming out of the mountains. It was a good time got to see some friends and ride with Wayne Oosterhoff Sr and Jr. and once again I had a reason to use my stop & go repair kit on the ride. No reason not to have one on your bike more than worth the $80 you spend. I think it is a great location/area but I hear a better hotel might be needed for future events.

    I think it is a great location/area, the event was well organized, and all the volunteers were cheerful and helpful, food was good on Saturday night. I did no stay at host hotel but I hear a better hotel might be needed for future events.
