Prior to the meeting, many members visited Commonwealth Motorcycles, where there was a lot of looking and touching, but no buying.

Andy Fountain presided over the meeting in the absence of Jeff Kernen.

11 club members were present.

Old business discussion consisted of confirmation that a $100 check had been sent to the MOA foundation, and that our rally ad that been sent to the MOA.

This led to new business discussion on how the link in the rally ad was tied to the new (revived) Hoosier Beemer web page. A lot of questions concerning how club members can register, view and add content. Follow up with Ian Jackson concerning the web page capabilities will be required.
