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.

  • Azure, Pt. 4 mai 25, 2020
    Maybe this wont turn into several blog posts but I quickly have learned that this is like starting from scratch on infrastructure because you may think you know how something works but this is cloud so we do it a little bit different. Which is fine but you know, definitional stuff and concepts. For example,... […]

  • How to Reduce the Costs of your Azure IaaS VMs – Thomas Maurer mai 20, 2020
    I hadn’t considered this but yeah those licenses are expensive. If you already have existing Windows Server and SQL Server on-premises licenses with Software Assurance, you can use them for Azure virtual machines (VMs). This will allow you to save the Pay-as-you-go cost for Windows Server and SQL Server licenses. The Azure Hybrid Benefit applies not only... […]
