Over the past couple years my local group has been somewhat stagnant, doing the same routes for our spring series every year. The RBA has been unresponsive to requests for volunteering and work on new routes, etc. He seems to be less enthusiastic and experienced than most of us would like. There has been talk about having an alternative spring series here in our region, and it would be quite easy for my club to host. As enthusiastic as I am about making things better, under RUSA rules I cannot be an RBA right now, though it is something I would like to do in the future. We are not the local randonneuring club, but if my local club wanted to host a spring brevet series, or say, a second Fall series, can the president submit plans to ACP and RUSA and just do it, or do we have to get the ok from our RBA? My club is registered with RUSA/ACP. IMO, considering PBP is coming up soon, I would like so see more activity like we did with our previous RBA.
