October 2014

We are a family organization based in the metropolitan Milwaukee Area. We have been in existence since 1983 and we are the largest 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 range from safety fairs, weekend camping/hotel trips, winter getaways to fight those winter non-biking blues, hockey games, fundraisers, dinner rides, and the list goes on and on. So, put down the kickstand and take a ride through our pages. If you happen to be in the neighborhood on a social night, stop in, we’d love to see you.

From The Director:

Fall is truly and sincerely here and our 2014 riding season is reaching its end.

The good news is that there are always some nice days in October which invite rides into the Wisconsin countryside. We get some beautiful colors during the fall which are really a joy to view while riding.

While our riding opportunities may be decreasing we are still planning many events so we won’t be losing track of our friends in Chapter G. From the activities section above you can see that we’re still busy and sharing our time with each other.

There is some news concerning our upcoming 2015 Winter Getaway. It will be held, as usual, on the first weekend in March (6th – 8th) and, as usual, will be in the Wisconsin Dells area. In 2015, however, we were forced to change our destination. For the past several years we had been staying at the Skyline Motel. Unfortunately, the Skyline no longer exists. It has been purchased by Olympia resorts. So we’ve re-located our get together to the Wintergreen Resort, located at 100 Gasser Rd. in Lake Delton. They will hold a block of 15 rooms until February 23. We’ve negotiated a group price of $79/night + tax. We will also have a hospitality room at our disposal. To get our group price be sure to tell the reservation clerk that you are with GWRRA Chapter G. The reservation number is 1-800-648-4765-1.

We had our annual Fall Fling at Konkapot Lodge near Bowler WI. The weather could have been better, but all of us who attended had a good time and as always, Bob Gorecki did a fantastic job with the Friday night shrimp boil and the Saturday night turkey fry and ham bake. Thanks Bob, and also thanks to all who brought goodies to share with every one. We also were able to have two great campfires which were presided over by our Empress of Embers Diana Gorecki.

At the October Social we’ll draw our cards and find our winners for the 2014 Circle Tour. If you haven’t already done so you can still fill out your entry form and give us your entry fee. You don’t have to be there to draw your cards, but the answers must be turned in at or before the October social and someone else can draw your cards for you.

Your chapter officers are working on setting up a calendar of events for next year. We’d really like to have a fairly complete calendar set by November. In this project we really need your help. Please continue to think of places you’d like to ride to and new places for our monthly dinner rides. It would be great if you also came up with rides you’d be willing to lead. We’re all involved in our chapter, so let’s all pitch in with ideas and planning. This really is a case of “the more the merrier”.

Hope to see you at any or all of our events this month and in the months to follow.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about anything involving chapter G please feel free contact us at the contact points listed at the top of this newsletter.
