From the Directors – July 2019

Written by Bruce Gebhard:

Hello Everyone!

The Wisconsin District Rally was a great success and everyone who attended had a fantastic time. Check out all of the pictures on our website. You will see that Chapter H was a force to be reckoned with this year! Congrats to the “Honda Hotties” on their domination in winning the team challenge. The individual events also went really well with several members winning various competitions. Our thanks to Marc, Bruce & Bernie for selling 50/50 tickets on Friday and then staying for the Couple of the Year (COY) event in support of Tina and I, that evening.

Our District Directors and staff went all out creating another fun filled weekend. We had gorgeous rides planned each day, ARC and TRC courses offered, a Bike Show, the return of the infamous Photo Booth (with lots of fun props), ice cream socials, and a fantastic dinner Saturday night. The off bike games included nerf poker, Tenzi, Yahtzee, Roulette, building a house of cards, and of course “Chuck a Duck” (congratulations to this year’s winner – Stan Harris). Chapter H was well represented in the Chapter Challenge – our team flew through the competition in 1 minute and 58 seconds – beating out 9 other teams! There was plenty to do and see and lots of time to catch up with friends from all over!

We would like to thank John and Denise Scott for nominating us for Couple of the Year! It’s an honor for use to be representing Chapter “H”, and Wisconsin as District COY. We are grateful for the support from ALL of you in chapter “H”, and throughout the Wisconsin District.

We have decided that we will be participating in the Northwest Territory competition for next year’s International COY program, which will culminate at the 2020 Wing Ding..

One of the things the judges will be looking for is our involvement and participation in GWRRA events. So – we will be attending the Region E Reunion Ride-In, NE/SD Rally, IL Rally, IA Rally, and Wing Ding. We would love to have you join us if you can!

This month has no shortage of activities and rides to participate in. Details will be posted on our website very soon for the Rockton Chicken and the Chapter rides.

I would like to officially welcome some new members and invite them to join us for a social gathering, and/or for any of the other upcoming events; James & Suzanna Shelton, Cal & Luisa Reuterskiold, and Judy Walker. Cal and Luisa participated in our District Rally, we all had a great time and lots of laughs!

Wing Riding Wisconsin

June’s qualifying rides included a ride to the monthly social at Castle Rock Inn. 3 bikes left from Madison going to Mt. Horeb, where we picked up 4 more bikes for a total of 7, then rode on to Muscoda for the social. Leaving there was a split into 2 groups. One went on a scenic ride back to Madison with 5 bikes and the 2nd group with 3 bikes went to look at the tractor that has the GL 1500 motor from one of Leo Casper’s bikes, before riding back home. Safety gear was worn by all riders. My math comes up with 7 points.

Remember to report any 50 mile ride with 3 vehicles (must have at least 1 bike/trike) to us so we can include the info in the newsletter.

Thank you!

Chapter Happenings – WI District Rally 6/21/19 – 6/22/19

From Chapter Directors – Bruce & Tina Gebhard

Good evening everyone!  What a fantastic weekend our District Rally was!  Our District Directors and District team really outdid themselves!  Special thanks to everyone involved in making this happen.  If you missed it, we had ARC and TRC classes, super fun daily rides (with yummy cheese curds and ice cream!), a cranberry tour, a poker run, fantastic and challenging off bike games, the return of the infamous photo booth, really delicious meals, great company, tons of laughs, and some neat celebrations.  We were really thrilled to have so many of you join us for the Couple of the Year competition.  It meant so much to us to look out and see “family” faces!  

From Chapter Membership Enhancement – Stan & Bonnie Harris

“Congratulations go out to Bruce and Tina Gebhard for being chosen as the New District Couple of the Year (COY)!  They conquered the entire interview and speaking process. There was an emotional moment which was handled gracefully. Former Senior Chapter Director, Marcella Newell escorted them to and from the stage during the ceremony.  Congratulations Bruce and Tina!  Our chapter is very proud of you and the leadership you provide us. You are very deserving of the honor! “
