President’s Report
Safety: A meeting re the incident near Waller on Saturday 25Sep21 will take place on mid-November and the president and secretary will attend.
Another ride leader class is needed; some have volunteered.
The board agreed that the pace groups will revert to 14-16, 16-18, 18-20 in 2022.
Regarding kit, the board decided to move to two vendors in the new year: ScudoPro and Vie13.

Vice President’s report
Continuing to work on the holiday party with hopes to send options to board via email.
Thursday night ride ends this week due to lack of light. Was a small but good quality ride for adding to membership. I intend to bring it back next year.
Concur with Geoff, additional ride leader training should be scheduled. Potential leaders we have been courting need to be confirmed.
Communication channel for ride leaders now exists on messenger, but not all leaders are in that group. Need to be more consistent, and set expectations for communication prior to the weekly saturday rides, we are having circumstances where we are short on leaders and trying to ad hoc replace them, which is not effective.
