Thank you to Dan Wilkinson for his time and efforts leading the NW Metro, making sure missions were conducted.  Dan has stepped down as Ride Captain in NW Metro.   Mark Lea was recommended and approved to replace Dan as NW Metro RC - thank you to Mark for stepping up.  Dan will still be keeping plenty busy as the Metro Senior Ride Captain and our webmaster guru and enjoy a little spare time now with Mark handling sector missions. 
Reece Hoelscher decided a few months ago that it was time for him to be able to spend some time with other interests and hobbies.  He recommended and it was approved and Reece will be turning the Mankato RC responsibilities over to Michael VanRavenhorst - thank you as well to Reece for his time and efforts leading the Mankato Sector and thank you to Mike for stepping up.  Reece - enjoy your extra time!
We could not do what we do without leaders getting everything set up for us - they have a big job to do.  Thanks to all of our leaders!
With the current riding season coming up, it's a good time to go over escort policies for missions.  Current escort policies have not changed - passengers, helmets, hi-vis gear, etc, is at the discretion of the RCIC of the mission, based on factors that include safety, traffic, weather, etc.  The only time requirements on escorts are in place is escorting the busses - that was a requirement passed to us which we have to follow if we wish to participate.

Thank you for all you do!
