3.Other Business

Kerry presented brochures for inclusion along with membership forms in new bike sales satchels at Hamilton Motorcycles for comment. Our newsletter editor, Ken Spall, is assisting with this, thanks Ken, comments back to Kerry by end of this month at the latest. Branding with the bike shop logo was suggested and Geoff and Don to contact Damien at Bayride to ask if they will include the brochure in Tauranga sales as well.

It has been suggested that Waikato/BOP host the 2021 National rally, after some discussion it was decided that we would not be in a position to organize the rally but may look at it in future years.

All were in favour of the minutes being posted on the website. Also Facebook was discussed and although our chapter has a facebook identity? no one at the meeting is aware of it or use it. Deferred for future discussion.

Meeting closed at 3:00pm.
