If you've ever thought about volunteering to help TBN, now is the time to step forward --two crucial board positions fall vacant at the November 3 annual meeting, and TBN needs you now.
President: Ian Rankin is retiring after three terms but will remain as past president for one year in line with the club's constitution.
Secretary: Bob Scott is retiring after two terms.
Plus we are looking for volunteers to join our social, education, technical and touring committees.
Please contact Ian if you can help.
