Learn more about the devoted members who work to improve the OORC's operations.
Chuck Maxwell - President
Chuck grew up in Austin, TX terrorizing the Barton Hills neighborhood on his BMX, and then graduated to a 5 speed cruiser for High School commuting. He bought his first Mountain Bike in 1988, a Specialized Rockhopper. With the Barton Hills Green Belt trails ¼ of mile from his house, he began his enthusiasm for Mountain Biking and trail development. Chuck moved to Fayetteville, AR in January of 1996 and joined the OORC in 1999, continuing his enjoyment of connecting with the Earth. He was elected to Trails Coordinator in January 2012 and since has become a more active member of the club.
Brannon Pack - Executive Director
Born and raised in the hills of Northwest Arkansas Brannon spent most of his youth on two-wheels. After wrapping up his collegiate career and receiving a degree in graphic design, Brannon relocated to Texas where he spent a decade in the bar and beer industry developing his event coordinating skills. Brannon moved back "home" in 2010 to be closer to family and provide his children with the quality of life that only growing up in the hills of Arkansas can offer. He immediately took advantage of the plethora of trail riding available in the Arkansas Ozarks and with his childhood passion for riding rekindled, joined the OORC in 2014 for the opportunity to make a difference in the community.
Brannon was recognized as a Volunteer of the Year by the OORC for his efforts in 2014 and would be quoted saying "I was part of a team that through blood and sweat, laid down trail that will be enjoyed by my children's children and long after I'm gone. Pretty cool.".
HB Fink - Secretary
H.B. Fink is a native to Arkansas. Born in Little Rock and raised in Fort Smith, he has called Fayetteville home for the past twenty years. One of the things that keeps him rooted to the area are the great trails! Like Chuck, H.B. got his start in '88 with a Specialized Rockhopper when a friend suggested he buy a mountain bike. He's made lotsof good memories over that time primarily riding in Arkansas and surrounding states but also venturing to places like Moab. Although he's been biking for a long time, he's new to OORC (he was a member for a very short time in the 90's). He decided it was time to give back to the mountain biking community in NWA and make some new memories!
