Bike Love Corral history. Outdated by NUBUG 2017 constitution
Because no previous written documentation existed about the NUSA, NuBUG and the Bike Love Corral relationship, NUBUG wanted to produce a written document as below (to explain their understanding of the current verbal agreements between the parties. The relationship has existed successfully for about 10 years (part time in front of NUSA building prior to Bike Hub East building) with many verbal agreements, and mutual coperations. NUBUG has informed NUSA of the document below but it is unknown if NUSA have formally passed any motions in any meetings about it.
