Minutes from the “Coffee Now, Bike Soon” meeting on March 26th

Review of “Shop Night”

  • The February event only received one attendee

o   Because of weather, the event was cancelled

  • The March event was very successful – six participants

o   Tonka Cycle did a great job with having mechanics on-hand
the session ran from 5pm to 8:15pm

o   5/6 individuals in attendance were new to Tonka and CC

  • Suggestion for next year – Instead of a February mechanic night, hold two events in March
