From The Director:

First we want to wish everyone a blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.

2014 certainly flew by. It’s hard to believe it’s December already. As busy as it always is, December will be gone before we know it.

LOOK OUT 2015 – HERE WE COME!!

We had a very fruitful and enjoyable 2014. We continued many events which have become traditions within the chapter, and also started some events which may become regular happenings too.

We want to give a great big THANK YOU to our outgoing Chapter Educator, Terry Werth. All of us looked forward to Terry’s monthly educator’s reports because they were always about a topic of great interest and value to us. One of the best things about them was that they were often about things we’d never thought about before.

We also want to welcome and thank our new Educator Dick Choyke. Anyone who has  attended one of Dick’s seminar presentations knows how much fun and interest he always manages to bring to the subjects he presents.

We also have to note with sadness the passing of two or our longtime friends and members, Ernie Olson and Bob Podd. They both will be greatly missed.

We also want to wish Mike Stockinger a quick recovery from the knee replacement surgery he had on November 20th.

Since it’s now the dead of winter, and our 2015 riding season is several months in the future, it’s a good time to get ahead of the curve with the projects that we put off so we could go riding during what passed for summer in 2014. (At least I definitely did that. Maybe some of you are more grown up than I am.) I always try to get that kind of stuff done now, so I don’t have to feel guilty when we’re out playing during the riding season.

Here’s hoping that 2015 is a great year for all of us and we get to enjoy many rides and other events with our Chapter G family.
