THOR Meeting

Yesterday's annual THOR meeting took place where around 40 like minded individuals convened to discuss the future of the trails, the club, and what needs to be accomplished in the year 2014. One cool part was what do we expect or want to see with our trails by 2020. A lot of similar ideas were discussed, one of the ones that I liked the most was the ability to ride to every trail by way of a paved trail or bike lane. Traffic sucks and I would rather not deal with it if I were going to bike to the trail.

Also, another good one that actually our group came up with was a smartphone or tablet app. This app would have updated trail conditions, maps, a calendar of events/races, and also a report button similar to what was on the website.

Talks of maybe a new trail  being looked into and also the addition to a couple of our current trails were also discussed. Good meeting, but man meeting that early downtown on a Saturday really made me tired! New shirt color was also pretty exciting, too bad I had just enough to pay for membership dues! It was also brought up of how THOR is looking to become a chapter of IMBA. It sounds great, but IMBA will take 60 percent of our membership dues and leave us with only 40 percent. Sounds like they will be digging into our wallets a bit, but at the same time they hope to bring on more members to hopefully offset that. Eh, we'll see how it goes.

Dig on!
