Robin Shafer

Seeking Treasurer position

I, Robin Shafer am applying for the position of Club Treasurer. I have ridden with the club for about the last 10 years. I go on many of the 3 and 4 rides. I enjoy riding with the club and would like to help make it function well for everyone involved. In the past several years I have helped with the Christmas Party, set up and provided centerpieces and decorations for the tables. For the last 2 years I have also helped with the Summer Picnic, setting up tables and providing centerpieces, selling raffle tickets and helping with games.
I feel that I am a reliable and responsible person and I have held similar positions in other organizations, such as Faculty Club at the high School I taught at. I handled the dues as part of that club, and as a swim coach ran fund raisers and collected money for team suits and equipment. I also ran a preschool at the high school where I supervised student collecting money for preschool enrolment. I feel confident that with some guidance from the current Treasurer I can do the job. I am currently retired and would have time to participate.


the sfvbc credo

The following list of rules, which have been unofficial for as long as anyone can remember, was made official by board action in September 2015 as the club “credo”. Mostly common sense, the rules are nonetheless critical to members’ safety.

  • Obey all traffic laws
  • Be courteous and “ride friendly”
  • Don’t usurp anyone’s right of way
  • Represent our club and the sport of cycling well
  • Hold your line
  • Ride safely and predictably
  • Call and point out road hazards
  • Help each other out with flats and mechanicals
  • Respect regroup points and break locations
  • Let someone know if you intend to deviate from the route
