Hi folks!  I'm Fred Chambers of the Beach Cities 
Chapter and also the Ag and Equestrian Division 
of the NFB, among other things!  One of my 
hobbies is tandem cycling, and I've ridden with 
the Blind Stokers Club a bit, including two of 
their Cycling for Sight events.  It's always an 
adventure when I head out on a tandemf, and in my 
thousands of miles I've survived without any injuries to speak of.
Very recently, I received the following 
invitation for this July's Cycling for 
Sight.  It'll be in my backyard, Northern San 
Diego County -- and I encourage anyone and 
everyone who likes biking to sign-up.  You still 
have 4-months to go, so if  you need a reason to 
stick to a New Years Resolution, you've got it!
The Blind Stokers Club or BSC is full of 
wonderful, amazing, fun, and funny people.  Read 
on, and seriously consider getting involved.
Yours, Stoker Fred

Diego.  Programs for independence like daily 
living, individual and group counseling, kitchen 
skills, career development, job placement, and a 
whole lot more.  Demand for the services that the 
Center for the Blind offers is growing all the 
time, especially as the baby boomer population
