Elections

It’s not just the Democrats and Republicans having elections. The WRCC is too! This is your chance to get involved with running our club. We will be electing three board members in February, and all six board members then choose our officers. If you want to get involved, you can nominate/self nominate in January by e-mail to our secretary Laura (lfurey@gmail.com), or in person at our January club meeting.

January Open Meeting

Continuing with our tradition, we will have an open meeting on January 23 at 2:00, in McAllister room A of the downtown Lafayette library. Everyone is welcome to join us. At the meeting we usually start planning for the Wabash River, so if you have ideas about how to improve our ride, or if you have other issues you’d like to bring up you are more than welcome.

WRCC Annual Banquet

Don’t miss out on our annual winter banquet, coming up on February 20. Once more we’ll be having it at the Lafayette Brewing Company, in their awsome upstairs space. Good food and company, goofy awards and mileage t-shirts, not to mention use of the pool tables! It’s free for members and always a good time. Their beer, while not included with dinner, is always a treat.

There is no charge for current members, who also receive our t-shirt if they have qualifying miles. So, if you membership has lapsed you might want to get on it and make sure that you’re a member in good standing. The banquet alone is worth it!

Membership Renewal

Your membership need to be renewed on an annual basis, and you should receive highly personalized (ok… automated) messages when it’s time to renew. Just follow the link in the e-mail and pay through Paypal (you don’t need a paypal account, any old credit card will do.) Or you can just pay the old fashioned way, and send in a check to
