Play Your Part

The Northbrook Cycle Committee hosts on Thursday at 7 PM a meeting at Village Green Park (1344 Shermer Road, Northbrook, IL) to discuss the 2009 track racing season. With so many track cyclists coming up from Chicago proper to the northern suburb of Northbrook to race on the velodrome located in Meadowhill Park, it would serve them well to attend this meeting, not only to express opinions regarding race and clinic programming, but also to become involved as a volunteer or support staff.

With issues having been raised this year and last regarding the scheduling for Thursday and Friday night's races, any track cyclist that races those nights might be well-served to attend the meeting to not only hear what changes are planned for 2009, but also to bring suggestions to the conversation.

Also, this meeting is a run-up to the election of officers for 2009. Just like the U.S. presidential election, the Northbrook Cycle Committee adheres to the democratic process. But, just as one has to register to cast his or her vote for president, one has to attend this meeting to have a say in who administers the track programs at the Ed Rudolph Velodrome.
