New Business

  1. There was discussion of the August Meeting Date (August 14) as it conflicts with the RA National Rally and all of the RAMS Officers as well as the meeting hosts are expected to be at the Rally.  Motion was made by Spencer Bennett (2nd by Paul Whitworth) and passed unanimously that the meeting be moved to August 21 and the Secretary/Treasurer will contact the Hosts and see if this can be done.

 Rally News

  1. Updates on the RAMS Fall Campout.
  2. There was discussion about the Campout scheduled for the first week of October as to where to make the main location.  Rose-Anne Bennett made a motion  (2nd by Paul Whitworth) that we hold it at the Pickwick Dam Tailwater Campground.  After a good discussion the RAMS present voted unanimously to hold it  at the Pickwick Dam Tailwater Campground.  The Secretary/Treasurer was directed to make the Campsite Reservations for 4 campsites for the RAMS.


VP Corner

  1. VP Jimmie Smith led a ride to the meeting and was pleased by the comments of all who joined him on it.  Apparently, this time there was no dead end turnaround.


Old Business.

  1. If anyone still does not have their picture in the online directory, please see Spencer or Rosey.
  2. If you would like a RAMS Patch (old Logo only), decal (old and new Logos) or need RAMS business cards, please get with Spencer.
