GVH'ers: Jacob Cohen and Chris Dalton did GVH proud this weekend competing and finishing the Cool Moon 100 mile race! Jake was breathing down the neck of first place at the race's end to finish in second, while Chris got 6th overall. (More info when GVH Race Results are sent). Well done on a hot weekend!
2021 Dues Relief: We had mixed comments on whether to reduce renewal memberships or offer discounted renewals and new memberships. Many said they're happy paying full fees. The board will determine the fee structure based on your comments. More to come on this soon. You can always make a tax deductible donation as well!
Full board meeting notes are posted on the meetings page.
