Sunday, April 19th is the Chapter Challenge mini-golf at Vitense Golfland. This will be immediately following our social.
We just returned from the Illinois Winter Warm Up Rally. John and Denise Scott went with us. If you haven’t attended an Illinois rally, you are missing out on a good time with lots of great folks. Mary Adams and her entire team do a great job! Denise won one of the chapter baskets and Tina won a beautiful handmade quilt.
As I think about the different rallies we attended this past year, we truly had a great time at each and every one of them. A big part of that was taking to heart: “Participate, Participate, Participate!” We actively joined in and made it a good time!
I know its only the 1st of February, but do you have all of your winter maintenance and upgrades done to your ride? I know you have plenty of time, right? Well, last year my riding season started on March 13th. That’s only 6 weeks away (I wish it was only 6 days away.) Anyway, it will be here before we know it. Make sure you have your bike and gear ready to go when it does.
If you’ve looked at the schedule, you’ve see that we have more rides planned for this year. I’m also hoping that we can do more “spur of the moment” rides. A great way to inform everyone of those rides is by putting out a post on our Facebook page. Anyone can post on he page. The information doesn’t have to be on the chapter website. You can put it on any number of other GW and other motorcycle pages. Lets use that to reach more new folks that are looking for a group to ride with!
See you at the Social on February 9th!
