SORBA Meeting Recap
We talked a little about the SORBA meeting last month. IMBA is making some changes and restructuring that will affect us at the club level. They are implementing a new dues structure. The dues will be going up, but we will see more of that money staying here with us. This is a good thing.
Oh Christmas Tree!
Get your tree this year from Andrew at Smokey Mountain Vintage Lumber! Ask them to donate 10% of your tree purchase to AMBC. They’ll do it!

Thanks to this great regional retailer for a donation from their sticker fund. $1168 to AMBC!
Clay Guerry with TVA spoke about Loyston Point, Knoxville area’s newest mountain biking destination. Everyone involved is thrilled with the response to this new trail system, but they ask that we let the new trail breathe and not ride it until it is ready. Thanks!
