Has anyone started a riding club before?

What are the ins and outs and dos and donts?

Anyone interested in helping out, please volunteer...

I really have limited amounts of time due to launching so new sites and redesigning this one...

Any and ALL help will be appreciated...

Maybe we should elect a group of members to run it, and Crash and I would just over see, track and monitor the progress... helping with the admin side of things...

Any ideas?

I currently work with a few diffrent riding clubs, some who own land and some who do not.

PAOHV has alot of information for clubs just getting started. There are also so other orginizations out there who provide similar information that I can PM you details about.

Some of the things you will need to think about doing are:

Draft by-laws
Create Waiver Forms / Membership Applications
Apply for Non Profit Status / Incorporate or both.
Create a Board for the Club with a prisident and officers.
Hold Meetings

Not sure if i would be in the way it would seem to go here, bringing money into it could turn in the wrong direction.

My Idea is to just post a ride and show up, seems to work out that way better to me. jmo.

x3 on the post a ride and show up to have fun. I think you it is done with the post such as with the ANF Annual Winter Ride and get people involved and pick places to meet and ride together it would be a great time and turnout as well.

I am a co-founder/moderator on another off road board. It's too hard for everyone to pick a date to ride, most people just like to dream about riding LOL. It's much easier for one person to pick a date and who ever can attend will attend. You could poll a date for a month or so in advance but we still even had trouble with people not picking dates.

Absolutely no money or promises of such should be used or implied.

Each month you could pick a different place which would let people recuperate from the last ride and time to prepare for another ride. That way it would feasible for different people to attend depending on their physical location also. They may not want to travel 3 hours for a ride but next month there could be a ride an hour away that they could attend, makes it fair for everyone.
