Without Earl, North Iowa SPIN would be in shambles. In a very quiet way, Earl makes it possible for the group to exist. As treasurer, he keeps very accurate accounts of many different activities, such as indoor classes and Bicycle, Blues, and BBQ Festival. Earl has played a huge role in fundraising for the festival. He is also secretary/treasurer of North Iowa Touring Club, as well as editor of the NITC newsletter. (He'd be willing to pass the latter job on to someone else!)
As an attorney, Earl's favorite trials are time trials. He's an accomplished time trialist who has competed at the local, state, and national levels, having raced Elkhart, Iowa Games, and Senior Nationals several times. Earl also leads some of the more interesting indoor classes, often with visual aids. Now, we just need to get him an iPod.
