3/4/2019 - Support for April TTs

Believe it or not, the TT Cup starts in less than 4 weeks and our first team event is April 7 (Steve Reed TT) followed by Allamuchy on April 13. I am putting out an early gauge for support. For those making the trip to Cape May, please let Joe know if you are available to help at all. For Allamuchy, as a Circuit TT, we need more volunteers. Would appreciate if you could let me know if you are available on Saturday, April 13 for a couple of hours in the morning to help make our event safe and successful. Our biggest need is always corner marshals, but let me know what you may be able to help with. Thanks and look forward to seeing you at our team party Saturday at Eric's.

1/29/2019 - Awards Party

Hope all are doing well and surviving winter. Eric and Maggie are graciously hosting our year end awards party again. All members, family, friends of the club, potential members and significant others are invited. Attendance was a little light the past few years, so lets support the club and turn that around this year – we've had up to 50-60 people in years past and it would be great to have a good sized crowd again this year. Details are as follows:

Date: Saturday March 9, 2019
Time: 5pm until its over (usually around 9pm)
Location: Schlauch Home
Please RSVP to Eric at his my work email: Eric@peak-environmental.com
Beverages, main courses and dessert will be provided. If you're able to bring an appetizer or side dish it would be appreciated, just let Eric know what you may be able to bring when you RSVP.
Questions? Feel free to call or text Eric on his cell (908-482-7671), or connect with Dottie, Joe, or me. We look forward to a fun evening getting the team together and recognizing some great performances in 2018.
