The New Year is here and we’re already getting into the riding season scheduling. Will J and I have a Pittsburgh Union 2018 Ride Schedule meeting this Saturday. We will be meeting with all the local union riding clubs to discuss setting up the 2018 Ride Schedule.
It will take several meeting to get this together and then I will send it out to all of you. Being it’s the start of the New Year your Club Dues are due the end of the month. Please send me your dues money when you can. The dues haven’t changed its $25.00 per member.
It looks like the February meeting will be moved to March since we probably won’t have all the information of the January meetings put together. Will J and I have the January 20th meeting in Scranton, PA for the National IBEW Club Meeting. Don’t forget the IBEW Charity Ride is in Morgantown W.V. July 20th thru the 23rd.
The hotel is:
Lakeview Golf and Spa Resort
1 Lakeview Dr.
Also, March is the month we are actively looking for our Union Brothers and Sisters who would like to join the Local Union #29 Riding club.
Naturally any union member(s) can come on our OPEN Club rides, or any of the 2018 Riding Schedule rides, and become a member of the club anytime throughout the year, but March is the only Month the club will be actively asking our union brothers and sister to come to the March meeting to see what the club is all about. That doesn’t mean you don’t have to mention any union member to join a ride or the club. If you have any union brother or sister interested in joining, PLEASE, invite them to the March Club Meeting or any Open Club Ride or Club Meeting.
I will have the meeting date next week for March after Will J and I get together this weekend. I was also informed by our Business Manager Kenn Bradley that he would post our activities schedule on the Union’s website so I will be sending our information to the union monthly.
If you have a ride or event you would like to have on the site please get it to me ASAP so I can get it to Kenn and have it put on the website. We are off and running for this year so I need you to get involved in letting the club know what you would like to do this year.
I hope to have more Club rides which will be for members only, like the Flight 93 ride we had. I know the club will be attending the IBEW L.U. 99 Charity Ride in Cranston, Rhode Island. It’s the second weekend of May. I will meet with L.U. 99’s Ride coordinator at the National meeting on the 20th. I will have the hotel where we will be staying after meeting Joe.
So, we have a lot of planning to do so please let me know what you would like the club to do this year. Stay warm and try not to get the flu’s like I have had for the past 2 weeks.
