SOCIETY BYLAWS OF THE HINTON MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION

Last revised March 2014


 
As a member of the [Hinton] Mountain Bike Club, I have seen this attitude in action with wonderful results. Instead of “Why should we do this?”, the excellent leadership says, “Why not?”, then finds a way to make it work. This group has used many volunteers, the Junior Forest Wardens and many productive personal encounters with local businesses to move forward. There is a sense of closeness and pride, and a constant forward-looking agenda. Outside the box is a given.
