DHPT September 2010 Meeting Minutes

On the weekend of October 15-17, LAMBA (Linn Area Mountain Bike Association) is planning a trip to Decorah.  This will not be an official event, but if you will be around, please join us for some trail riding and other fun outdoor activities.

Jesse Reyerson has returned to Decorah and it was voted to be reinstated as DHPT President.

The Issue of the Summer Sizzler was brought up and it was unanimously voted to be cancelled.  The reasons being:
  • The event has only been successful once in 4 years
  • August is a busy month for many people
  • There seems to be a lack of Coordination and Effort required to put on this event
The New Trail Maintenance position seems to have been a success.  While the heavy riding season is not over, those who attended the meeting felt that the trail were clean and clear all summer.  We plan to continue with the position for next year.

The Night Shift Night Race will be held next month on Saturday, October 30.  
We will need to do a better job of clearly defining responsibilities.  There were some small issues this year with the Time Trials that we want to be sure to avoid for the Night Shift.
Remember, We Need Volunteers to make our events happen.  DHPT members, if you are racing, please volunteer to help with something that is pre or post race or ask a friend or family member to help out if you cannot.
We will be looking for volunteers for the following positions:
  • Course Marking
  • Registration
  • Starting Line
  • Course Marshals
  • Timing
  • Finish Line
  • Posting Results
  • Sweep Rider
  • Course Clean Up
We will be filling these spots by the October DHPT meeting.
