    Volunteer Registration for the 2012 Old Kentucky Home Tour is now open!  To volunteer, go to the Louisville Bicycle Club homepage here; http://www.louisvillebicycleclub.org/  On the menu bar, click on OKHT and then click on Volunteers at the bottom of the dropdown box.  When you get to the Volunteer page, you’ll find a list of volunteer positions at the bottom of the page.  Click on your selection and follow the instructions.  If you want to volunteer for more than one position, you’ll have to register for each position separately.  For your volunteer efforts, each volunteer will receive complimentary OKHT Registration and a commemorative OKHT t-shirt.  Also this year, a new OKHT sponsor, Parkside Bikes, has donated a FUJI Roubaix road bike that will be given to one lucky volunteer!  There is a photo of the bicycle on the volunteer page.  The winner of the bike will be drawn randomly from registered volunteers.  Each volunteer will have one chance in the bicycle drawing. 

    While you’re registering, make sure you order your Commemorative 35th Annual OKHT jersey.  You can see the jersey and t-shirt designs by clicking on the Souvenirs button in the OKHT dropdown box.  If you want the delicious Chris Cakes Bar-B-Que dinner in Bardstown Saturday evening, you can order that while you are registering.

    We would like to thank Parkside Bikes at 1377 Bardstown Road for their support of the 35th Annual Old Kentucky Home Tour.  In addition to Parkside, CLARKSVILLE SCHWINN is back as a Gold Level sponsor and we would like to thank Bob Peters & Co. for their continued support.  Main Street Bikes is also returning as a sponsor--thank you, Tom! 

    Offering mechanical support for this years’ OKHT; Scheller’s Fitness & Cycling, On Your Left Cycles and Vic’s Classic Cycles.  Hopefully, we’ll be adding more sponsors in the coming weeks.

    When you visit any of our sponsors, please thank them for their continued support. 

    Volunteer early, volunteer often!  Thank you all for your support!

    2011 OKHT Registration is open!

    Registration is now open for the 2011 Old Kentucky Home Tour.  The dates for this years OKHT are Saturday September 10th and Sunday September 11th.  You can register online through active.com, which can be accessed through the club webpage.  If you want to volunteer for the OKHT, you’ll need to fill out the form and mail it to the address on the form.  We’re exploring how we might be able to make the volunteer process paperless, but for now, we’re doing it by paper.  ALL VOLUNTEERS NEED TO FILL OUT A REGISTRATION FORM!  Here’s a picture of a Registration Form filled out.

      Fill the form out carefully.  Make sure to put VOLUNTEER on the form.  For an 8 hour commitment, volunteers will receive their ride registration plus the Official 2011 OKHT T-Shirt, so we’ll need to get your shirt size.  If you want to order the commemorative jersey designed by John Mahorney, you’ll need to order it on this form and include the payment when you send the form in.  Same thing with ordering Saturday Evening Dinner.  If you want a delicious Chris Cakes prepared Pulled Pork Bar-B-Que dinner or Vegetarian Burger dinner, you need to make your selection and send in payment with your registration form. 

    Also, keep in mind we’ll need fresh-baked cookies for the World Famous Cookie Stop, Sunday morning.  Bring your cookies with you when you pick-up your registration packet and we’ll see that they get to the Cookie Stop safely!  

    We need lots of help, so we hope you’ll consider volunteering to help make the 2011 OKHT a success.  I’ve spoken with a number of folks who have said they want to help.  THANK YOU!  Keep in mind, ALL VOLUNTEERS NEED TO FILL OUT A REGISTRATION FORM.

    After careful consideration and lengthy yet fruitful debate, the Executive Committee is very pleased and excited to announce the that following individuals have accepted appointments to the leadership of the club:

    VP - Treasurer - Jody Patterson - Jody is a fairly new member of the club, and an active Mad Dog and Randonneur.  She comes to the role with over a decade of experience in the bookkeeping and accounting world, along with a familiarity with the bookkeeping software the club uses.  

    VP of Touring - Charlie Drexler - An LBC member off and on since 1991, Charlie brings a fresh perspective to the role along with significant experience in the professional world where his experience will come in handy with the organization and forward progress of the club's Touring agenda.

    President - Andy Murphy - Andy's enthusiasm and spirit for the club are well-known and recognized by anyone who has ridden with him. We also recognize that it is important to honor the recommendation we heard from the attendees at the last general meeting. There are many hefty challenges ahead for all of us, and Andy will no doubt have his share of fence mending to do. We trust that his many good qualities, for which he was first elected to this office, will see him and the club though the work ahead.

    Touring Committee - The ExCom felt that it was unfair to the new VP of Touring to appoint the entire committee without involving the newly-appointed officer in the selection process.  Therefore, we are going to wait a couple weeks before finalizing those appointments.  The plan to build a structured committee of riders to help build the touring vision for the future remains very important to the ExCom.

    The restored ExCom will be meeting for the first time this weekend to continue the missions we set forth at the last general membership meeting.  We will provide updates as the news warrants.  The e-mail links and contact information on the club site will be redirected to the proper folks at that time as well.

    Thanks to all of the club members who stepped forward and applied for the available roles!  We were really pleased with the applicants, which made the process a little tougher, but very satisfying.  

    Also, we owe a great deal of thanks to the members of the club who have been so patient and supportive while the ExCom worked through these transitions.  

    Ride safely,
    Your Executive Committee
