Lastly, Jean Marie, president and web-mistress has developed a web posting policy due to a great influx of emails from members and cycling organizations. If you feel that something is important enough to share with all members, post it to BVC-Chat to get the word out. Better yet, show up to meetings and share your enthusiasm.
