    Still getting to this. Thanks for the feedback again @oldbeer. If you had the time and inclination you are welcome to download the doc, make your recommended changes and upload it again.

    As a club with potentially 2000 members we could look at things like ferry discount arrangements, fuel cards etc but I don’t have the overhead to do it myself.
    Also at least 1 manufacturer has expressed interest in doing things with us but again I can’t do it myself.

    Inspired by a great day on the bike, as a result of joining this group I have as Eddie requested had a crack at the rules and made some amendments. I have tracked the changes so you should be able to see what I have done when you open them in MSWord. IF you want to read it without seeing all the red text, then go to the review tab and switch them off.

    This cannot be the the last draft – we need to have input and discussion. I’m conscious that I am very new here. Surely some of the older hands have a view?

    I’ll post a comment on the Facebook page also.

    Hi Mark
    There was more discussion on the rules thing on the Facebook page than on here but trouble with that is things disappear off the radar pretty quickly. Is there a way to “sticky” it to the top of the page so people see it a bit more often?

    Just a thought

    So the idea of forming Adventure Riding NZ into a club has really died a death due to a lack of any real interest from members.

    This leaves a number of options available, one of which is to turn the Adventure Riding NZ website off.

    Eddie,
    Can I propose that we organise a meeting for a face to face discussion of the options?
    I would say the invitation would be to all members interested in contributing to the club/group/society/website … and go from there.

    Eddie, Joao, Mark,
    I would be keen to take part of a face-to-face meeting with you somewhere.
    I guess there is a deadline, on one way or other, to do something to keep the site/community alive.
    What timeframe are we working with?

    I had been having similiar thoughts about a meetup. Jennifer and I have been really busy over the last few weeks, and are for a couple more but I am keen to do a get together. Given we are in Hamilton and all you guys are in Auckland it would need to be on a weekend.

    I’ll come too…..if I’m still welcome that is.
    Miranda Pub?? About half way and we get to ride round the Kaiaua Coast :):)
    Suggest you pick a couple of dates that work for you and Jennifer and then we can pick the one that suits best?

    Yep, very welcome. Miranda isn’t a bad idea.

    Hi

    I agree Miranda sounds good, only issue with me is that I’m out of the country between the 16th of June and the 26th of June.

    Any thing before or after works for me.

    Cheers

    This meeting point works for me as well.
    I am away from 9 Jun to 20 Jun. Otherwise anything else is good at this point.
