September 2020 Virtual Meeting
« on: September 15, 2020, 12:45:38 pm »
Austin here coming with another virtual Monthly Meeting to catch you guys up on everything that has happened last month and where we will be going for next month.

Lets get started by thanking everyone who was involved with our impromptu run last month. We had a great day trip through the mountains of Georgia with some great apple themed stops along the way. This trip was a great trial run for utilizing FRS radios in our runs and we had great feedback from our riders. More on that below!

While we have had many virtual events this summer, we are starting to see an ease in cases that are allowing us to host in-person meetings once again! For October's meeting we will have our first socially-distanced, outdoor Monthly Meeting. This event will take place on Tuesday October 20th at 6:00pm. The sun is going to be setting at 7 that evening so we need to have our meeting start a little earlier than normal. The location will be on the Tennessee Riverwalk at the Hubert Fry Center pavilion. This meeting will not have food served but we urge our members to bring your own food to enjoy. Please also bring a folding chair to ensure we have enough seating for everyone. There are plenty of tables at the park so folding chairs shouldn't be necessary, but we still want to be sure just in case. Donations for our banner can also be made at this event. If a rain date is needed, a clear day will be picked from that week, for the same time.

Tuesday October 20, at 6:00pm at Hubert Fry Center Pavillion, Tennessee RiverPark, 4301 Amnicola Hwy, Chattanooga, TN 37406 Bring you own food, chair and a costume if you would like!


As mentioned previously, we had a run with FRS radios and the response was overwhelmingly positive. With this in mind, we will be implementing FRS radios into all of our future drives. These radios are inexpensive and act as walkie-talkies for everyone while on the ride. This will help if someone gets lost, someone sees a hazard in the road, or someone even has some facts about our scenery that we pass. These radios may not be required for all events, but will be strongly utilized for all events for those who have them. Any radio that is compatible with Family Radio Service (FRS) channels will work with our radios.

A couple examples of FRS radios have been linked below:


Lastly, we have had great discussions about the implementing insurance into our group and after many months of different options we have come to the conclusion of a SCM Liability Release. Starting August 1st, 2020 all members who wish to partake in a ride with our club will have to sign a single page release form. This is a single time form and will be signed by both driver and rider. These forms will be distributed at each event for those who have not signed previously. Those who will not sign this form will not be allowed to ride with our club. This is the easiest and least expensive way for our club and members to release liability without insurance.

That would be all that I have for this monthly meeting! I hope to see you all at our next meeting in October! Keep on the lookout for any other events between now and then!
