DECEMBER 2021

 

group picture

We are a family organization based in the metropolitan Milwaukee Area. We have been in existence since 1983 and we are one of the larger GWRRA chapter in the state of Wisconsin. Besides our love of Gold Wings, we love to have fun.  You will commonly see our members riding together and doing non-motorcycling events.  We enjoy meeting new people and we accept new members with open arms.  If you have a technical question, most likely someone in our group will be able to assist.  Our activities include safety fairs, weekend camping/hotel trips, winter getaways to fight those winter non-biking blues, fundraisers, dinner rides, and the list goes on and on.  If you happen to be in the neighborhood on a social night, stop in, we’d love to see you.

CHAPTER G NEWS – DECEMBER – 2021

DECEMBER EVENTS:

1.Wed. December 8 ROMEO breakfast ride to Melrose 6840 S. 27th St. in Oak Creek.Meet at the restaurant at 8:30 for good food and great company.                                                                                     We’ll continue our past practice of limiting our chapter activities during December to give members the opportunity to spend time with family during the holiday season.                        There will be no dinner ride or social in December.

 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

We want to wish all our members a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.      We hope everyone’s holidays are pleasant and enjoyable.                                                                            As you can see from the schedule of events for December the only event we have is the ROMEO breakfast ride on the 8th. We’ve always felt that December is a month to concentrate on Family so we hold our chapter events to a minimum.                                                                                          What will occur for the chapter in January is very much in doubt. After much thoughtful consideration and many discussions Sharon and I have reached the hard decision that as of December 31 we are stepping down as chapter directors. So far we’ve been unable to find anyone who is willing to take over for us, so things are totally uncertain right now.                          If you’d be willing to assume the duties of director of Chapter G please let us know right away. We’ll gladly do anything we can to help you smoothly assume the position.

We’ve enjoyed these years as officers in the chapter, but it’s definitely time for us to move on.      Wishing everyone the best of times and good luck.

ROMEO Breakfast Ride to Blue’s Egg, 317 N 76th St, Milwaukee. Meet at the restaurant for some good food and fun times.                                                                        2.Wed.

Time and place to be determined. Members will be notified by email.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:

As usual the summer is flying by. August always seems to get here way sooner than we’d like. Next thing we know it’s Fall.                                                                                                                       At least we’re having a great summer and enjoying many good times together. Let’s keep it up while we can.                                                                                                                                                    We’re still hoping to find some new places to visit during the remaining summer months. We’ll let members know via email of upcoming events.                                                                                    In case you didn’t notice the location of our August dinner ride had to be changed. The original location we planned to visit has decided to only have carryout dining, so we’ve changed our destination to Irish Cottage II.                                                                                                              Unfortunately, as we were forced to do in 2020 because of Covid, we again have to cancel our annual Chapter G picnic and chapter challenge for 2021. Milwaukee county is still not issuing any picnic area reservations. Without a reservation we just can’t be sure we can get an area for the picnic. Maybe by August of next year we will be back to “totally normal”.                           We’ve also been forced to cancel one of our most enjoyable chapter events which was always held in September. Unfortunately, this is a permanent situation. Our annual “Fall Fling” has had to end because the Konkapot Lodge where we’d held it for many years has been closed. We don’t know if it was another casualty of COVID or if it was closed for some other reason. We’re going to miss the great times we always had there.                                                                        We’re still enjoying having our socials outdoors at county park beer gardens so that’s most likely where they’ll be held any time the weather cooperates. Members will be notified via email of location and time as usual.                                                                                                                  We’re hoping to see you all at one or all of our upcoming events

There will be no dinner ride or social in December.

 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

We want to wish all our members a pleasant and happy Thanksgiving with family and friends.

November pretty much marks the end of our riding season in Wisconsin. There may be a few warmer days where you can sneak in a short ride, but they are usually few and far between.

That doesn’t mean, however, that we can’t spend some pleasant time together. We’ll have our usual breakfast and dinner rides and our social, but riding will probably not be part of our planning.

Again, we wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving, with all the football games that go with it, and the shopping that follows on Black Friday for those who enjoy those activities.

Hoping to see you at any or all of our November events.

 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

Now that October has arrived we’re definitely looking at winding down our riding season, although there are always some really fine days for riding this month, and the fall colors are at their peak. That makes for some really pleasant rides.

You are reminded that our October social is the time to bring your 2021 Circle tour answers and entry forms. We’ll be checking all the answers and drawing cards to determine the winners of this year’s cash prizes. Please bring your entry fees in cash not checks.                                             This year our October social falls on the 31st. Since it’s Halloween let’s plan to make it a really fun social and have a costume party along with dinner.

As it always does here in Wisconsin, summer has flown bye, but fortunately September still offers plenty of great weather for riding, and lots of wonderful places to visit.

Fall is a favorite time for many people. Football starts up, the baseball season is winding down and our Brewers will hopefully be in the hunt for postseason play. Hunting seasons are starting or are just around the corner. It’s a great month to be a Cheesehead!

Unfortunately, we’ve lost one of our favorite events. For many years we had a fantastic time at our annual “Fall Fling” at Konkapot lodge in Bowler Wi. We’ve now had to cancel it because the lodge closed permanently last fall. That’s too bad. We had some really great times there.

As we’ve had to do for over a year now we’ll have to “play it by ear” with the location and time of our monthly social. Once we’ve been able to find a place we’ll let everyone know via email.

Hoping to see you at one or all of our September events.
