Taking the responsibility seriously, delegates reviewed the rules and created a set of school-wide rules which will be posted in each classroom, as well as in many locations at GMS. The next step: craft a large poster so all students can sign their names (in the manner of the U. S. Constitution).

The club rides mostly down the bike path in town, then cuts up into the MSTF ski trails on the Primeau property, which is full of needle covered wide paths through a natural setting, as well as highlighted single-track lanes for those who want a more serious challenge. The Club is open every day, weather permitting, through-out the fall. Above from left, John Carpenter, Daemmieon Blacketer, Peter Alexander, Joe Sequin and Hunter Gray are the inaugural Day 1 riders!

Statistically speaking, there is reason for each to pause; it may not be as easy as it looks. Some sources cite as many as 80 percent of students will switch their major at least once and many will switch two or three times.
