Encomium to a Long-suffering Volunteer

When Jim suddenly passed, TCSD's Treasurer, Brian Long, assumed the role of President. In doing so, he took the lion's share of TCSD duties on his (recuperating) back.

The job: overseeing 1700+ club members, three race series, monthly meetings, a couple dozen volunteers, lots of sponsors, and a few charities.

It is: unwieldy, monstrous, and thankless.

Basically, it's a second full-time job without any perks like break-room coffee, a gym membership, or a paycheck. If you see Brian at a club event (if there's something going on, he'll most likely be there) give him a quick, appreciative "thanks."
