New California Members
« on: January 12, 2024, 11:52:30 AM »
I am seeing posts of new members in California.  We used to have a large and very active membership in both Southern and Northern California. There are only a few of us left. I am glad to see we have some new members.   Maybe time to organize a get together?  Perhaps in the Central Coast?   Any interest?

Just FYI, the forums have very little activity as many have moved to things like Facebook (not myself). Might be easier to pull out the MSTA directory (blue book) and look for members in the local area and contract them directly if you are interested in getting something going.

PS  I have some family in the LA area, one brother used to live in Agoura Hills and when we went on rides we would sometimes head thru Moorpark and ride 23 (Grimes Canyon)

The last membership directory was updated in May of 2023, and even then it was immediately outdated as it didn’t allow constant and immediate updates.  A new system that is being worked out will allow the directory to be accessed electronically via the MSTA website and it will constantly and immediately update itself as people join and memberships lapse. Should be implemented fully sometime this summer.

I would suggest using FACEBOOK to reach out to the largest number of people that might be interested in getting together. We have 11X the number of people in our Facebook group (11,000) that we have as dues paying members or forum members (<1000). It also constantly updates as people join (we are averaging over 200 new Facebook “members” a month!).

The other option….if you just want to reach out to dues paying members of the “club” is to contact Don Moe ( and ask him to send you the current roster of members for California. That will,provide you with names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails.

Thanks for your efforts toward getting the California people back together!

Following the Facebook suggestion, our Florida MSTA group has both a website and a Florida Facebook page.
A Facebook page is easy to set up and seems to attract a lot of interest.
We use the page mainly to inform interested riders of our monthly lunch rides.
Might be worth a try...? -JEP-
