January 2020 Board Meeting Minutes

CRAMBA’s December 2019 Board Meeting was held on Thursday, January 9th 2020 at 7pm at Steampunk in Utica.

Meeting was called to order with Brian McPherson.  In attendance also Wade Robbins, Steve Vigneau, Michael Green, John Knight, Marc Padin, Ken Markiewicz, Chris Westerlund, and Kevin Gorman.  Minutes recorded by Rebecca Padin.

Board Items:

  • Bald Mountain/Addison Connector: DNR is currently working with Federal for approval. As existing service road approximately 50’ west may be utilized as the endeavor would be seen as “restoring infrastructure” instead of “new development”.
  • Ay CRAMBA Winter Event: 2/1 (2/22 backup) Event scheduled to run from 12pm to 5pm at the Picnic Area at River Bends. Chili Cook-Off canceled to honor the simplicity of the event.  Potluck still encouraged.

Addison Oaks Race Items: Confirmed timeline to setup Friday, CRAMBA race Saturday, MISCA race Sunday.  MISCA will mark the course for their races, and will be responsible for teardown on Sunday.

National Mountain Bike Patrol Items:

  • Banner with new artwork received, came in under budget due to donation of materials by the vendor.
  • Bike Patrol members are also required to be registered with the National Ski Patrol, which brings their total membership cost to $125 annually. Chris Westerlund is requesting that CRAMBA assist in subsidizing membership costs to encourage membership.  Board to consider based on setting a guideline/minimum number of hours and events to support CRAMBA.
