JULY MEETING & Updates

There are new podium pics in the Racing gallery.

The MOBRA meeting is tomorrow night. See meeting logistics for time and location.

The main topic of conversation will be on the MOCC discussion. The Missouri Crit Calendar series idea was brought up months ago at a member meeting. Similar idea to the NCC calendar. MOBRA would facilitate a calendar of select C Level and higher Crit races within the state of MO and possibly a short distance across the borders and process them similar to BAR. If you have ideas or thoughts or simply want to hear from the Sub-Commitee for the MOCC has to say please attend.

Normal business will also take place.
