Last summer, Jason Decoux (CROCT member, Founding Supporter, and regular trail worker) submitted a CROCT grant request to his employer, SageGlass (SAGE Electrochromics). The company annually invites employees to nominate local non-profits to receive a monetary donation. Their Community Gift/Giving Committee reviews the submissions and the the company hosts a dinner to honor the recipients and hand out the checks. We were notified a month ago that the request was approved.
Marty briefly updated the audience on the work our volunteers have done on constructing mountain bike trails in Rice County in the past year. And he was handed at check for $345 which we’ll use to purchase some much-need trail tools.
Unfortunately, Jason wasn’t able to attend due to an emergency at work. We drank a beer in his honor.
We were pleased to have six mountain bikers from the Faribault area attended our CROCT board meeting at the Washington Recreation Center last week: Jason DeCoux, Pat Walsh, Stephan Weissmann, Rob Newport, Phil Thoreson, and Mike Rost. CROCT member Jeremy Bokman is also from Faribault. Next month’s board meeting will also be in Fbo, 7 pm, same place.
On our IMBA Chapter application we’re required to indicate the geographic boundaries of our club using zip codes. We’ve indicated that we want to stay within Rice County for now, so that means these communities:
Lonsdale, Veseli: 55046
If you’re a mountain biker in one of those cities or anywhere in between, let us know!
