BCARES Members,
BCARES holds its annual meeting in January. This year it will be held on January 13, 2020 at the Boulder County Clerk’s Office, 1755 33rd St. in Boulder in the Houston room, accessible from the parking lot. The door will open at 5pm with refreshments and getting acquainted.

The meeting will begin promptly at 6pm.
At the start of the meeting we will recognize our guests and give them a short time to make remarks if they wish. Following these opening remarks will be a PowerPoint review of 2019 that will recall this year’s activities and briefly address the future. There will be a short break before the business meeting.

At the business meeting will be the election of some of the Board members. The BCARES Board is made up of 2 representations from each of the three local clubs: BARC, LARC, and RMVHFS. We also have six elected members at large, of those, four representatives are up for election each year.

Remember, you need to be current on your dues ($20) in order to vote.
You can pay by PayPal on the BCARES web site (below), or cash or check at the meeting.     http://bouldercountyares.org/donations/

Patches, hats, and decals will be available to purchase.

Please look over the web site and especially the Vision, Mission, and Values statements.

At this weeks Board meeting, it was announced that the University of Colorado will not require ATV support for this fall's football games.  As a result, I have removed our ATV training dates from the 2019 Training Calendar and deleted the calendar event entries. 

The Board is working on the details of how this will impact our ATV training program going forward, since these games were used as a key training vehicle for ATV. There will be more information to follow as detailed plans are developed.

It is very likely that we will be asked to provide situational awareness support for other campus activities, from time to time, for other events not centered around Folsom Field.

Thanks ……..Jerry
