Not to bury the lead – old newspaper term, moving on – Please take time this week to review the proposed Bylaw changes before we vote on them this Thursday. For those of you who have not yet taken a look, the last time we did a bylaws revision this comprehensive was 2010. If you have any questions please contact Past-President Paul, Mike church, or myself.
See you on Thursday.

What to bring: Bike, bike light (plus optional headlamp/flashlight), helmet, jacket, water bottle, face mask, lunch or snack, and positive attitude 
To purchase tickets go to this website:
1. Pick the date of August 8th 
2. Select the number of trail passes by age
3. Select the number of shuttle tickets by age
4. Select what you want to rent if anything (My family is renting five lights to attach to our handlebars because they are essential to getting through the tunnels.) 
5. Check out and print your receipt to bring to Lookout Pass for your tickets. 
Plan to get dirty in the tunnels and bring a jacket and gloves to wear because it gets quite chilly when you are riding through the St. Paul Pass Tunnel.  Bring a face mask to wear on the bus ride back up to the parking area. 
Please send me an e-mail so I know that you will be joining us. 
The website is a great resource for information.

Thank you,
