Chapter Meeting, Sept 9th at Maybury

Please join us for an MCMBA chapter meeting at Maybury State Park on Sept 9th. We'll provide a chapter update and a review of the results of our recent membership survey. This is a great opportunity to see what others are thinking, provide feedback, and help chart a course for the future of our chapter.

We'll be meeting at the Oak shelter (see map at http://mmba.org/library/maps/maybury/maybury_map.pdf ). Enter the park off 8 mile and turn left at the T to park.

Bring your bike - the Maybury trail is open and in excellent shape.

We'll fire up the chapter grill starting at 6 pm, and provide burgers, hotdogs, and soft drinks. Feel free to  bring adult beverages if you desire.

Meeting starts at 7 pm.

  1. Welcome and opening comments
  2. Approve Minutes from June Meeting

  4. Survey result presentation and discussion
  5. Adjourn


We hope to wrap things up around 8:30, leaving time for a night lap of Maybury (bring lights!)

Out of park before it closes at 10 pm.

See you there!

Survey closed - Thanks for participating!

Thanks for your excellent response to our recent survey! We received over 90 responses, and over 30% of our membership participated.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be discussing ways to incorporate this feedback and sharing the results with our membership. Stay tuned. As always, feel free to reach out to us via the contact page at any time.

See you at the Maybury Time Trial!

 

Tree Farm Relay - Thanks!

Thanks to our 117 teams who participated in this year's Tree Farm Relay! The rain held off for most of the day and the course was buffed and polished by dozens of volunteers over the past week.

Results are available on the Race Services website, and photos have been posted by participating teams on FB and the MMBA board.

Next up: Maybury!

 

Membership Survey

In order to better serve our members, the MCMBA board is doing a survey to better understand the interests, needs, and perceptions of the chapter. Whether you're a member or not, we're interested in your opinions!

This survey includes sections on membership, trail days, chapter meetings, and events.

This survey should take less than 10 minutes of your time. Feel free to skip questions or sections and focus on what is important to you.
