UPCOMING EVENTS:
Chapter H and friends have been enjoying our bi-weekly Thursday evening rides. Our ride on June 4th had 3 bikes (should have been 5) that went on a great ride up to Reedsburg via Leland on some nice back roads, and then over to Baraboo and down to Sauk City for Culvers.   This past Thursday the 18th we had 10 bikes go on the ride!! Tom laid out a terrific ride of about 100 miles southwest of Madison and ended in Verona with an ice cream stop (Imagine that!).
     After our June social on the 14th, John Scott led a great ride with 5 bikes.  It was about 80 miles of fun roads, with a visit to the Cone Zone in Milton.  They just happened to find some members of Chapter A there also!
    There are still a few rally’s that have not yet cancelled, (and hopefully won’t) that we are planning to attend. Let us know if you’re interested in going with us for any of them. Here is the list:
*Montana rally July 24th & 25th
*Michigan rally August 14th-15th
*4 Corners rally in Ignacio CO Aug 28th & 29th
*Iowa rally Sept 25th & 26th in Fairfield IA.

It was great to see everyone at our monthly social this past month. We had a great turnout with 21 people in attendance.  We are grateful to have been able to utilize zoom to fill in the gap for our socials, but it is soooo nice to see people in person!  We really enjoyed when we went around the room and shared things we are currently grateful for – thank you Bonnie Harris for the idea.  We hope that everyone is staying healthy and getting some riding in.   It has been nice to be out enjoying some fresh air and “wind therapy”!

   Did you know there have been online university classes being offered via zoom?  Visit www.gwrradot.com to see all of the classes they have been offering during the middle of the afternoon, and again in the early evening. These classes are really catching on, and they may be continued indefinitely. The July schedule is posted. You do need to register in advance for the classes, and they will send you an invitation to join the seminar a couple of days in advance.   

Happy July Birthday’s: 12th John Scott 14th Bea Kolb 14th Bernie Hansen 29th John Wendorf

Social – Sunday, June 14, 2020

Hello Everyone,

Stan & Bonne have been in contact with Monona Gardens.  Nick is open for business.  He is taking every necessary precaution for COVID and will accommodate us for our gathering.   We will still plan for 10 am.  We understand some of you may not feel comfortable coming to eat, but we can still socialize with the proper spacing for social distancing if you would like to come.

We need to RSVP to Nick with how many are coming so he can plan accordingly for setup.  Please either RSVP to Bonnie and Stan, or Bruce and I.  We are going to plan a ride for after Social.

We hope to see you there, even if it is just to visit!!!

Bruce & Tina

June News

From the Directors – Bruce & Tina Gebhard

Next Social – June 14 at 10:00 am – Maybe via zoom call or at Monona Gardens – – Check your emails and for updates in the website.

On May 21st, Chapter H and Friends started the bi-weekly Thursday evening rides. We will depart from our meeting point at 6 pm taking about an hour ride to a chosen place. After a short break we will take an alternate route back to the meet up spot. The meeting spot and designation will change every time we get together. Watch your emails for the next ride.

There are still a few rallies that have not yet cancelled and hopefully won’t. We are planning on attending them. Let us know if you are interested in going with us to any of them. Here is the list: Montana Rally July 24-25, Wingers Reunion (Non GWRRA event) in Hannibal, MO Aug, 13-15, 4 Corners Rally in Ignacio, CO Aug. 28-29, Iowa Rally in Fairfield, IA Sept 25-26

At the time of writing this, the state is in the beginning stages of reopening. Current rules allow us to meet in groups of 10 or less, except for Dane and Milwaukee Counties. We are hoping June is better than May, both from a weather anon and the Corona Virus standpoints. Things are certainly different and who knows what our “new normal” is going to look like. All events are subject to change, so keep an eye out for updates.

Did you know there have been online university classes offered via zoom? Visit www.gwrradot.com to see all of the classes that are being offered during evenings to help us with our “down” time. These classes are really catching on and may even be continued indefinitely.

With the Safer at Home seeming to drag on, we can start to feel disconnected. Let’s all try to participate in either a zoom call, an evening ride, or something to help us still feel like an active part of our chapter. We are missing seeing everyone in person and will be doing check in calls to hear your voices.

Stay Safe!
