Thursday, Oct 2
7pm, Hardesty Library
93rd St just east of Memorial
Join us for an evening of wincing, oohs and aahs and "oh mans" as we join well known cycling commentator, Bob Roll, in reviewing cycling video archives of eye-popping, jaw dropping mishaps from cycle racing history.
From the great stage races to the Spring Classics, you'll see some of the most spectacular crashes recorded, from the 50's and 60' through the 90's and into the new century.
This is a highlight reel you won't want to miss. Like the tag line from ABC's Wide World of Sports, where there's the thrill of victory there must also be the agony of defeat.
Join us as we "share the pain" with these road warriors of the peleton, in glorious color, full speed and in slow motion with commentary from Phil Liggett, Paul Sherwen and Bobke.
A message from the Club President, Dale Schrimshaw
Club Elections, Nominating Committee Openings
It's that time of year again, when your club officers for the next year are nominated and seek your approval to serve the club for another year. Your nominating committee this year is: Lynna Gilstrap, Greg Houston, Debe Judah, and Don Schick. Club bylaws require seven members on the nominating committee. If you would be able to serve on this important committee, please give me a call at 918-625-6715.
Three Agree To Stand For Re-election
Three of the current officers, President - Dale Schrimshaw, Vice President - Tammye Johnson, and Secretary - Ross Snider, have agreed to serve another year. Your Treasurer, John Ross, has decided to step down after this year. John has served in this position for a number of years, and decided it was time to give someone else the opportunity to serve. He would be willing to help his replacement get up and running. The treasurer's position takes, on average, about eight hours a month. During those months when the club is engaged in functions; such as, Free Wheel, Tour de Tulsa, and the Fall Century, John estimated the treasurer's work increases to about 12 hours. During the winter months things slow down to about four hours a month. John uses an Excel spreadsheet to maintain the clubs financial records and reports. If the new treasurer preferred using some type of software, Quicken, QuickBooks, etc., I’m sure that could be arranged.
Please Consider Serving
If you have some experience with such matters, or just want to be more involved with your club’s activities, please contact a member of the nominating committee or call me at 918-625-6715.
If you would like to nominate a club member for any of the officer positions contact any member of the nominating committee or call me at 918-625-6715.
