Other notes from our meeting:

We voted to name our 500 mile races after long-time member Bob Zerkle. The race will be called the Bob Zerkle “it’s not a memorial” 500. (OK, not really, it’s called the Bob Zerkle 500).

Bob also suggested a good weather app called “My Radar”.

We voted to take our leftover $50 from the old bird season to buy a trophy for the 2016 Auction Race winner.

We discussed (via email) the option of changing our shipping limits to 20/25. It has not yet been decided.
