Shenandoah Valley, Review on Winchester wheelmen

Winchester wheelmen - Triskel
Winchester wheelmen – Triskel

We are a non-profit organization.

We are cycling advocates for all cyclists, mountain bike riders, road bike riders and families.

Membership runs coincidentally with the calendar year, with the year beginning on January 1st (ref. for those who might be on Chinese Year or something entirely different.) We used to, on the order of 10 years ago, keep track of everyone’s membership month and they would be a member for one year – big pain to keep track of! We’re not super-strict about the calendar year in terms of cutting members off from the newsletter. For example, a 2011 member will get the newsletter until March of 2012 unless they renew.

Club members are to receive a copy of the Winchester Wheelmen Resource CD-ROM upon initial membership. If you didn’t get one, let us know. Contact info@winchesterwheelmen.org . We no longer have the WW map booklet from 1987 available. All of the maps that were in that booklet are on the CD-ROM, along with many other materials.

The club is called Winchester Wheelmen because of the ties to the national organization, League of American Bicyclists (LAB). The predecessor name to the national organization was League of American Wheelmen (LAW), hence “Winchester Wheelmen”. We still secure club cycling insurance through LAB. That’s what part of your dues go to.

Dues are spent in different ways by the club in different years. Though we might not do a club picnic in a particular year, we spend money in the community to support cycling (trail maintenance tools, helmet purchases, donations to events, etc.); this is done by vote at club meetings. Other things that consume dues money are printing and postage for the newsletter. (Thanks to so many taking the letter by e-mail; only 5% of the club is taking the newsletter by USPS!)

President: Ken Tenney
Vice President: Bruce Taylor
Treasurer: Jonathan Hanson
Secretary: Pat Bacuros
Webmaster: Justin Larsen

We hold the election of officers at the December dinner banquet. Non-elected positions in the club are webmaster and newsletter editor. These positions were not included in the charter for the club when it was incorporated in the 1980’s. To change the charter would be problematic, so these simply remain non-elected positions.

  • Questions and answers, you see what you want sometimes mars 22, 2020
    Almost through the questions I missed the first go round, again. I think I’m in the 70-80 precent range but its possible its worse. Hoping not but I’m going to keep going through this lot of 250 till I’m in the mid 90’s before going through everything again and then hope I’m in the mid... […]

  • Is this for hashing… or encryption? mars 20, 2020
    Starting to get a handle on things but there is still lots of detail to get into and I would like to understand it all. At first I was kind of erring on the side of that being unimportant and that I should get this done as quick as possible. While not being wrong, I... […]

    This is the next part of the 5 questions that one of which took about a week to do and I still feel like I should go back over the authentication portion of the AES modes but ill get to that. I mean, it was basically a post on one topic which I haven’t really... […]

  • AES Encryption Modes mars 15, 2020
    Well, I started back through the questions that I missed the first time around and I can tell you I have for sure learned a ton. I’m able to explain concepts that I wasn’t able to before and rationally provide answers rather that give a letter answer because I memorized that as being the answer.... […]

  • Multi-part questions mars 11, 2020
    Multi-part questions, tough but I will say that I saw some questions directly from these on the last test so its probably a good idea to at least understand them and probably have them memorized. So here we are. Then I have to start going through the questions that I missed the first round through... […]

  • Super long Sec+ post mars 9, 2020
    Still having trouble with a few things after moving through the third round of going through questions. Wait, maybe that was the 4th. Yeah, the 4th. Also, this took about 3 days to write I think? Maybe longer. Wait, I might have started on Wed night. Anyway, as I was saying on twitter: So, I... […]

  • Questions missed from the first round mars 2, 2020

This is a typical scenario but the block of questions is unbelievably massive. I mean, its for sure do able... […]

  • The end of round 1, for Security+ février 27, 2020
    Welp, I’m finally almost caught up on bogging which means that its back to going through test prep questions. Man, this thing is a monster and I cannot stress that enough. I have been taking it slow though. Which has curved burn out and what I’m calling shoe shine head. Not great at memorizing without... […]

  • Back to Security+ posts! février 25, 2020
