From The Director:

Happy February everyone.

Even though it’s the shortest month of the year it often seems to take forever. Still cold, often snowy, and we still have several weeks of winter to get through. On the bright side the days continue to get longer and we’re one month closer to riding season. There really is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Our new chapter educator, Dick Choyke, has a seminar planned for Sunday Feb. 22 which he’ll present starting at 11:30 AM. It will be followed by a chili dump, starting about 1:30, and then we’ll hold our February social after that.

The chapter will provide the bowls, utensils, napkins and such we’ll need for the chili dump. We’ll need everyone to bring a quart or so of chili to add to the “dump”, and we had a sign-up sheet at the January social for the other things we’ll need.

Even if you don’t plan on attending the seminar, why not plan to show up for the chili dump. It’s a lot of fun and the chili always tastes great!

Another good thing about February is the Winter Get-away is almost here. It’s one of the best annual chapter event we have. Those of us who attend look forward to it all year long. We have a great time with our Chapter G friends and shake off some of the winter blues.

Please remember that this year, after many years at the Sky Line Motel, we were forced to find a new venue for our event. It’s the Wintergreen Resort & Conference Center located at 100 Gasser Rd. in Lake Delton. The reservation deadline for getting our special rate is Feb. 23. The number to call is 1-800-648-4765 and press #1 and ask for the GWRRA Chapter G group reservation.

Have a great month of February and we hope we’ll see you all at the Get-Away in the Dells.

Rich & Sharon Winkler

Happy Birthday!
