NO DINNER RIDE OR SOCIAL IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER. EVERYONE’S JUST TOO BUSY.

From The Director:

October came through with some nice riding weather. I think most of us consider riding in October to be a bonus.  It sure was a great month for seeing beautiful colors in the many woods around SE Wisconsin. If there should be some mild days in November so we can ride a little, it will be icing on the gravy!

At our October social we made plans for our Christmas party on Saturday December 5. Anna and Terry graciously agreed to have the party at their house.(W154S7052 Sandalwood Cir. Muskego). We’ll start around 5:30. The chapter will provide meat and buns. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass and your own “adult refreshments”.

We also got the information on the 2016 Winter Get-away. We decided we need a change from the Dells so this year it will be in Baraboo at the Best Western Baraboo Inn, located at 725 W. Pine St. The motel seems to have everything we need and is in the final stages of a total renovation so it’s clean and shiny.

The most important event for the chapter this month will be the installation of the memorial stone we purchased to honor Diana Gorecki. It is scheduled for Saturday November 7, at 10:30 AM at the Wisconsin Motorcycle Memorial Park located at 4758 Mathey Rd. Sturgeon Bay. Many of us have reserved rooms at the Apple Creek resort in Fish Creek for that weekend so we’re closer to the park. Feel free to join us if you want to. Everyone is certainly welcome.

As usual, we’ll have a ROMEO breakfast “ride” and a dinner “ride” in November. The information is located above.

At our November social we’ll draw tickets for the mileage contest winners. Be sure to get your mileage numbers to any of the chapter officers. E-mail or phone calls will work if you can’t do it in person. Your final 2014 mileage will be the starting number for 2015 so if we don’t get your final 2015 numbers, we can’t put your tickets into the drawing and you can’t win. If you can’t be there for the drawing, you can designate someone else to get your tickets. We’ll again be giving away both a front and rear bike tire as prizes. You’ll get 1 ticket for each 1,000 miles (or part thereof) you rode since last year.

Other than the ROMEO ride and our chapter Christmas party there won’t be any chapter activities in December. For the past several years it’s been the consensus of the members that with the holidays and all the family events that always happen in December, there just isn’t enough time.

We’ll start going strong again in January.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. All you deer hunters shoot straight and all you ladies SHOP TILL YOU DROP.
