From the Directors – Bruce and Tina Gebhard     

Hello Chapter H members and friends! I always like it when March gets her. Why? Because that normally means that sometime later in the month the riding season begins!! Hopefully you got all your maintenance items taken care of, or they will be very soon.

That of course means that it’s time for some parking lot practice or sign up for a TRC or ARC course. We have one coming up May 8th (TRC) and 9th (ARC) in Wisconsin Rapids. Also there will be a CPR class in the of the 9th. Contact me if you need information on how to get registered for the classes. I would like to encourage everyone that is still riding to participate in the levels program. The program is designed to help us keep up our skills on the bike, and in case we need to administer first aid or CPR in the case of an accident, etc.

We just received our newest edition of Wing world and along with it is the new gold book. I don’t know about you, but it’s been awhile since I have gone through it to see all of the great information that’s there. It isn’t just a directory of the members. It has a bunch of other stuff too! There is a list of all of the benefits that we get as members including pet insurance, travel and car rental, and hotel discounts. Do you know or remember how to tie your bike down on a trailer or how to pick it up by yourself? That information is there, along with a list of all the Honda dealers in the U.S. and Canada. Also included are a membership application and a 4-month trial membership. If you haven’t read it in awhile, I want to encourage you to flip through it again. You may be surprised by what you find.
