Derek

I wrote in one of my broadsides against Derek that I recognized he had been a prodigious worker for the club and wish to restate that here.

A bunch of old guys in the corner

Now it starts. A bunch of old guys huddled together in the corner complaining about everything under the sun and how it was different "back in the day".

And a bunch of young

And a bunch of young wippersnappers who just want to ride their bikes except when they're whining about the "old guys".

Sounded like a good idea......Once upon a time

Nothing better than being handed a pile of other people laundry.

This is a nice way to start off the 75th Anniversary of the NYCC.

Well, Congrats to all our officers, especially ELLEN.

If I can be of help please don't ask.
Just kidding, If needed please feel free to touch base.

Thanks Derek, Congratulations Ellen

Too bad we had 2 motivated, capable people who wanted the Presidency at the same time.

NYCC grows and has an expanding vision for the future.

To the general membership: Consider taking that extra step. If you are an infrequent rider, do a Sig or STS in the Spring. If you have been a regular rider, help lead. If you have skills on an organizational leadership level, get involved with the ENY and/or or governance. If you have inclination and skills that can directly help in any of our functions, volunteer. In the years I have been associated with NYCC I have gotten more out of NYCC than it has gotten out of me.

Setting aside my own personal

Setting aside my own personal feelings about the results of the election, what I find really exciting is the number of people who voted. I forget the total number of votes from last year but if I recall correctly, it wasn't nearly as high as the number of votes this year. Hopefully, that level of member participation won't stop with voting and the new year will bring more rides and more volunteers. That would be the best outcome we could have hoped for.

I'd write more but I'm starting to get a blue on blue headache.

There were a total of approximately 300 votes cast in last year's presidential election. I.e., ~15% of membership.

I agree, it's very exciting to see how many more members came out to vote in this year's election...though it still begs the question, why are the other >1500 members so disinterested in who their president is?

Election numbers reflects the general Elections, almost

I heard an interesting tidbit on the news during the past general election.

The 2 top countries in Election participation were Malta, Austria & Italy have over 90% Voter turnout.
Australia leads with 94% where it's compulsory.

Here in the states we are lucky to reach 54% in a Presidential election.

My guess is that people don't see the reason to vote as they may feel that they are part of the
club but prefer to remain apart from its politics.
