RCS Newsletter - Winter tires

December is almost upon us, and Winter tires are upon our Kia Rio5. This was a safety feature our Board decided to add this year, in part thanks to the generous contribution of funds by SaskCentral. We also have our Winter safety kit in the vehicle, so our members are conveniently stocked for a Saskatchewan snow season.

We're still working on acquiring a second vehicle. We're learning that how we purchased a vehicle the first time was much easier than trying a large dealership with a large finance company that isn't familiar with car sharing organizations. However, we'll press on until we talk with the right people and get the best deal for our members.

This semester, RCS was the focus of a University of Regina class assignment in Entrepreneurial Marketing. Third-year Business Administration students analyzed statistics data to determine target market locations, and developed potential marketing plans.

I'll be presenting on behalf of RCS at Green Drinks on Thursday Dec. 2 at 5:30 p.m., at Abstractions Cafe on Rose St.

Our next Board meeting is 1:00 p.m. Dec. 11, a Saturday. Contact us for the location if you're interested in attending to meet the Board members (or to volunteer).

Yours in Sharing,
