RFTW Board of Directors Announcement

Last night, the RFTW Board of Directors elected John “Turkey” Staub President, and Billie “Bugs” Dunlap Chairman/Vice President. This action leaves a vacancy on the BoD, and we anticipate soon announcing the opening.

If you would like to serve on the Board, we will be looking for someone that is forward thinking and has a dynamic skill set that includes proficiency in Microsoft Excel, Word, data analysis, can understand a balance sheet and can occasionally travel for meetings, please sharpen your pencils, and update your resume.

Is it May yet?

Midway Route RC Update From the BoD

RFTW Rider Survey

The Board of Directors wishes to share that Jim “Bruzer” Bruzewski has, for personal reasons, stepped down as the RC for the Midway Route for 2023.  Bruzer has long dedicated his free time to advance the mission of RFTW, and as we move forward with our 2023 planning, his zest and energy will be missed.  Jerry Wilkins agreed, and the BoD has approved, his appointment as Midway RC.  Jerry will nominate his ARC and the BoD will act on that nomination as soon as possible.

Run for the Wall Rider Survey

RFTW Rider Survey

We need your input!

Your opinion matters! Please take a moment to help us shape the future of the run by participating in a very short, 11-question survey.

As a perk, we will be drawing three names at random from the survey respondents. The lucky three will each receive a $50 digital coupon code that can be used at the RFTW.US online store. Of course if you wish to remain anonymous that is also an option, but you won’t be entered in the drawing.

Hurry, we will close the survey on 31 August, 2022.
