It's fixed.

Tale of woe

The Club Secretary is a little perturbed today. He tried to log in to the Lions Clubs International Member Center so he could transmit the most recent membership and activity information. The site has been changed around a little and the login information that had be saved on the old site was no longer there so he couldn't log in. He attempted to retrieve the password using the procedure set up on the site. But when he finished providing the information asked for, he received a message that the data didn't match. He says he thinks he's not the only one who's frustrated at the moment.

The only question is why do IT folks seem to believe they have to keep fixing stuff that isn't necessarily broken?
That's a rhetorical question. It doesn't require an answer

Another successful event

Saturday dawned early for the Anderson Lions Club and the other participants at the Anderson River Park Century Bike Ride... which actually only starts and finishes at Anderson River Park. It otherwise winds its way through the foothills to the east, covering much beautiful country.

The first step in the process is to load up equipment and supplies for Rest Stop #3, also known as a lunch stop. It was one of three rest stops the Anderson Lions were manning.
It is bare ground at the corner of Ash Creek and Dersch Roads. We police the area before setting up.

It may have taken an hour from the time we loaded up until the rest stop was ready.

This is the first real view the riders on the 60 mile route have of the rest stop.

The 60-milers are making pretty good speed as they run downhill on Dersch Road.

The first riders to arrive are on the 40 mile route. They come in on Ash Creek Road.

We are in constant contact, in case of an emergency (like running low on strawberries) because of the amateur radio operators.

When the riders on both routes leave they head west on Dersch Road.

Two more 40-milers.

Many times two bicycle racks aren't enough.

The Enterprise Lions Club has done an outstanding job organizing this event. This year there were over 200 riders. The slow growth has allowed all of us to learn and still provide the best possible experience for the riders.
We are grateful for the opportunity to assist and to benefit our community from the ride. We are also grateful to have a day to rest before the start of a new week... and that it waited until today to start raining.

Tomorrow is the big event

The temperature should suit the riders just fine for the ride tomorrow.
Riders can still register at the start on Saturday morning at the Gazebo in Anderson River Park.

Our other fund raising project

We have just been notified that the materials for ordering calendars for next year have been shipped. As soon as the Anderson Lions finish with the Century Bike Ride, we will be out and about soliciting advertising and selling calendars.
