CSTR Aug 2010

 

Membership in CSTR

Participation in the August CSTR is not simply a vacation.  We expect all members to participate in the work load in some way, either planning a ride, working to set up trails, working to make landowner contacts or working during the ride on the various committees and pitching in whenever something needs doing.  CSTR is family. 
 
Current members must maintain their membership whether or not they decide to participate on the August ride or risk defaulting on membership and being required to re-apply.
 
Anyone wishing to apply for membership in CSTR must make application and be approved by the Board of Directors.  We will be accepting a limited number of new memberships a year.  Application may be made to the CSTR during September of each year.  The applications will go before the Board in November.  Those accepted in this application procedure will become full members of CSTR.  They will be eligible to attend the CSTR August Ride..
 
The application procedure must be followed exactly. The membership application download here and a picture should be mailed to KAREN WOOD, 180 MAIN ST., ATKINSON, NH 03811.

Sponsor recommendations must be sent in separately from the new member application.  The form can be downloaded here.
