NMTS Happenings

Rob Oakes Memorial Bike Rack

The New MexicoTouring Society (NMTS) is pleased to offer the opportunity to remember and memorialize William "Rob" Oakes.

Rob was an active and enthusiastic NMTS member who died tragically, in May 2013 while riding his bike during the club's annual Gila Ride.

Rob logged over 27,000 club miles since joining NMTS in 2007, and served as editor of the NMTS Freewheel from December 2011 until his death.

NMTS has established a goal of $2,000 to cover all the expenses of the memorial.

The $2,000 includes a reserve for future maintenance.

Suzanne Taylor's Blog on Astronomy
Many NMTS members will remember Suzanne. She lives in Gunnison and still rides with the club when she visits here.
We have ridden with her on trips to Colorado.
That she also is enthusiastic about astronomy, makes her especially interesting to some of us. Below is the link to her blog.
