The club meeting was held after lunch, 7 members were present.

The club website was discussed again. Access and website content were discussed, as well as potential for increased views as the Rally date approaches.

The Rally ad should appear in the August MOA Owners News.

Brad & Bill attended a sidecar rally and offered 1 free admission to our September Rally as a prize. This may encourage a few sidecar riders to attend our rally.

There was discussion about creating a club business card with the club web page and Facebook addresses, which could be handed out to other BMW riders we meet as a method to increase club membership.

A new member, Dick James attended the meeting and was approved by vote.

The next meeting will be 25 August and will be coordinated with Ian Pearson. Will likely be a ride and lunch in Kentucky.
