Over 30 people attended 2014 Season Pre-ride Meeting!

The MMMBA kicked off the 2014 Season with a chapter meeting held on Saturday, April 19. OVer 30 people attended the meeting which covered a lot of ground.

Brindley Byrd, president of the MMMBA gave an update of activity since the new chapter leadership came on on board. The biggest issue they worked through was the change in liability insurance for the chapter. Due to this change, the MMMBA does not endorse the use of chainsaws by volunteers. In the event of felled trees obstructing the trail, the MMMBA Trail Coordinators will work with the land managers to best determine how to remove the tree. All other tree work to be done from the ground using non-powered tools. We have taken this policy to minimize the risk to MMMBA volunteers and reduce the risk of claim on our new policy.

Reid Abel was recognized at the 2013 MMMBA Volunteer of the Year! He has dedicated many tireless hours making sure the obstacles and stunts at Burchfield Park are safe, fun and challenging. Thanks Reid for all your hard work!!
