BBC Booty ride "event".

BBC Booty ride "event".

Was surprised to see this on the calendar.  Was even more surprised not to see any mention to the 10 riders here at BBC that have gathered together on their own, formally asked the BBC officers if we can use their name, promoted both this outside event and fund gathering on their own time.  I think at least some mention of Jeff Adler and Maxine Mead efforts are warranted if this is now a "BBC event".  "Team BBC" has pledged over $5,000 towards this event independent of BBC and has the 6th largest pledge as of now.  Meanwhile those on the team are scratching our heads wondering who "Annie Jackson" is that is leading this for BBC (per BBC calendar) this weekend.

Thanks Carl for telling me what I already know.  Maybe you can enlighten me on why no mention of the group supporting both BBC and booty ride was some how forgotten in this process?

And just so you clearly understand me this time Carl, the key words you missed "... that is leading this for BBC".

I'm fairly certain that there is no mention of 'team BBC' because The Booty ride is just one of many NON-BBC events posted on the ride schedule which lists the events sponsor or contact person as 'ride leader'.

Um... yeah ... right.  Like the BBC Corn roast, BBC meetings, BBC Picnic, BBC Flatlands tour.  They seem to be listed as EVENTS, just like the Booty ride is displayed as an EVENT.  I guess you are confused my friend.  NON-BBC events are called OUT OF BOUNDS events and labeled purple.  EVENTS are BBC EVENTS and labeled green.

I sent a pm to the person who posted the ride to alert them that it seems to be mis-categorized on the ride schedule.

Re: BBC Booty ride "event".

Hi Terry and Carl,
As I understand this thread, there is a question as to the category the Booty Ride fits into on the club ride schedule. Historically, events that are in the Ride Event category are the events the club puts on itself by club members and have been around since the club's beginning. Charity rides are put into the out of bounds category since the club does not organize them. The only exception is the Tour de Port; bikemd.org puts on this event but the club is the major financial support for bikemd.
You have no idea of how many charity rides the club is bombarded by--all wanting to go on our ride schedule. You would not be able to read the schedule for the regular rides if the club Road Captain did not pick and choose which of these charity events to allow on the schedule.
At a minimum, if you think the BBC Racing Team has been slighted in the posting that is on the schedule, ask Annie Jackson to re-write the description of the event to recognize the Team's contribution. Actually, you can do it yourself. I listed the Shorefire and Hanover century rides since the program directors had not. If you want to "upgrade" the event, do what Carol Sildorff, bikemd's director, has done and make a presentation to the Board as to why the BBC should make the event a club Ride Event. As of now theTour de Port, is a club Ride Event as well as a blackout date (no other club rides on the schedule for that date). Any club member can attend any Board meeting anytime. Just let us know when you want to come and what you want to put on the agenda before a Board meeting.
Hopefully, this email clarifies how "events" are listed on the club ride schedule; if not let me and/or the Board know.
