TRH President's Report - November 2016


Hopefully, you are prepped for a nice Thanksgiving or still stuffed from dinner.  Either way, as we bring another year to a close for the Trail Riders of Houston, I wanted to take a moment to thank all members, Event Chairmen, and Board members for making off-road dirt bike riding fun.  We had another successful year and will be planning for 2017 to be just as great with Fun weekend rides and events. 

BIG NEWS!!  MARK YOUR CALENDARS.

The TRH Christmas Party will be held at Sterling Ranch on Saturday, December 10th, 2016.

There will be a General Meeting with Board Elections & Hall of Fame at 1pm followed by a burger lunch provided by the club. Please bring a dessert to share.

Santa has agreed to show up with gifts for the kids. You may also pay Sterling Ranch the daily fee to ride the trails & camp out. Thanks to Brad Burch for allowing us to use his beautiful ranch as a new venue for this event.

NOTE: Bring your own chairs & the loan of any ez-ups & tables would be appreciated.


ELECTIONS AND HALL OF FAME SELECTION

Attached is the election ballot for President, Treasurer, Database Coordinator, Public Relations Coordinator, and Property Master.  You will notice that all positions are running unopposed and will be voted in by acclamation.  Please come out and support our process and meet the new Board.  They work very hard for the club and deserve your support.

An Ongoing Hunt...


The TRH Board is still engaged in a two pronged issue:  the search for quality properties to ride and potentially lease similar to the Skull Creek lease, and the ability to obtain a General Liability policy for the lease property.  This is not to be confused with event insurance.  TRH is still insured on all of our events.  We had the 1100 as a lease property, but had to cease our riding activities as we search for adequate and affordable insurance.  Once we obtain GL insurance, we could potentially regain the use of the 1100 for club members.  This is a time consuming task, but one that we are working on.
For 2016, our plan is to continue having fun days and TRH competitive events at locations like Brunes Mill, Sterling Ranch, Rio Bravo and the Sam Houston National Forest.  All is not lost, TRH existed well before Skull Creek.  We promise to continue holding fun events.  Please watch your emails and updates to the TRH website for membership renewal and 2016 events schedules.

It is time for TRH members to step up and help out with several Board positions.  It is not as time consuming as you may think and the current crop of Board members (pick one) has worked in the same or rotated to different positions for the last 5+ years.  If you have fresh ideas and an opinion on the direction that TRH should evolve, please speak up and volunteer.  The club stays strong if everyone participates.  Hope to see you out there!

Thank you for your support,
Lynn Bailey
VP
