Adam Schwartz, our NER Track Chair, expects that the Calabogie and Tremblant events will be back on the schedule in 2022.

Plans for the 2022 Ramble in Newport, RI are well underway. Our Ramblemeister, Dennis Freidman, is securing a very interesting lunch spot for the Saturday drive.

Anker reported that the process is running quite smoothly now. Weekly emails to the members include links to columns and articles as well to upcoming events. NER members can now get more frequent information to NER events via social media.


The NER Board and the club’s activity leaders monitor any changes to required COVD-19 related requirements and restrictions that might affect our upcoming events.

The next NER board meeting is scheduled for September 8th at 6:00PM on Zoom.

The Club’s monthly Board meetings are planned for the second Wednesday of each month and typically begin with a social period at 6:00PM and the official Board meeting at 6:30PM – although when it’s a Zoom meeting, the social piece is brief, and the meeting begins shortly after 6:00 PM.

Club members may attend any of the monthly Board meetings. Please contact the Club Secretary ([email protected]) in advance of the meeting to confirm your attendance and the meeting time and place.
