Feb 12th Update

Hello Cape Fear SORBA. I hope you had a good weekend filled with long rides and good cheer. This email will serve as a recap of this past weeks membership meeting as well as updating you on a few topics of interest. So lets get to it!

Club Meeting

Several topics were discussed at the most recent club meeting. Lets go in order.

Our current VP Austin Fenwick and Secretary Jay Pearce have opted to not run for re-election at the end of their term in April. Both can not commit to the duties of these positions due to various factors. With that being said we are accepting nominations for all positions on the CFSORBA board (President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer). We will accept nominations into the month of March (and potentially longer) with elections coming in April. If you are interested in being a part of the board and would like to know more please email

The club also discussed the much talked about fall event that was also a topic of conversation in January. We decided on a specific date for the event: Oct 13th and 14th. The club also agreed that a 6 hour race (with a 3 hour race option) was the race format to go with for the 2nd day of the event. Club members also discussed having a 5k trail run on the first day of the event to draw more people to the festival day. Brandon Davis and Austin Fenwick are currently heading up initial planning for the event which includes meeting with potential PR reps. More information will be released when we have it!

Also! The club members in attendance raise $130 for the fund to send Tripp to Washington DC for the National Bike Summit! We still need to raise more money everyone! If you wish to donate and help Tripp get to DC you can click on the link below to do so via the CFSORBA paypal account.  You do NOT need a paypal account to

Help Tripp’s Journey To The National Bike Summit! Donate Here!!

In addition there was also a discussion about a potential new ride coordinator! More information will be made available as it comes up!

In Other News…

The next race in the CCORS series is coming up soon! It takes place on Feb 26th at the Piranha Pit in Havelock NC. This event takes place on a Air Base and therefore they are requiring all potential racers, volunteers, and spectators to register so they have an accurate count of people on base. Registering at the below link does not mean you are required to race or committing to paying any money or anything else. So even if you just MAY come to the event please register below. That way if you do come out you can certainly make it onto the base!

Register for CCORS Race #2 Here

Also if you would like to meet and caravan/carpool up to the next race check out our group and RSVP and chat about the options!

Last but not least if you are interested in being apart of the Cape Fear SORBA team for the CCORS series please let us know! Club President Greg Brinson is looking for other competitive riders wanting the challenge of defending our series championship! You can email him at
