From The Director:

First of all, Sharon and I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy New Year. It is our sincere hope that everyone has a joyful holiday season and a healthy and happy 2016.

Now that we’re truly into winter, about all we can do is look back on our 2015 riding season with happy memories and look forward to the 2016 riding season with hopes for  safe and fun riding all spring, summer and fall.

2015 was an eventful year. We had some really fun times, but we also were faced with some very sorrowful times too. The loss of our dear friend Diana Gorecki definitely put a sad tinge on our year. We miss her greatly. Many of our members made the trip to Door County on November 7 to support Bob and his family at the placement of the memorial stone the chapter purchased to be added to the Wisconsin Motorcycle Memorial park in Sturgeon Bay. (Pictures of the event are posted on the chapter website.)

We want to thank Art and Pat Kuenstler for their two years of service to the chapter as Assistant Directors, and Dick Choyke for his year as chapter educator. They all did a great job making things work well for the chapter and Sharon and I both really appreciate the work they put in.

We’d really like to get 2016 started off well and continue to build on it throughout the year. We’re hoping to have some interesting and informative seminars during our “down time” this winter. We’ve already had a couple members tell us of rides they want to lead this summer and there are some others who are looking into the logistics of leading other rides. Since we’re a biking organization it would really be nice of more members came up with rides for us to take. Let’s all make an effort to add to the enjoyment next year. If anyone is considering leading a ride but is unsure how to set it up or prepare for it feel free to talk to  Terry Werth. He’s the chapter ride coordinator and has led many rides. He can give you many pointers and helpful hints that will take the stress out of the process. A ride doesn’t need to be long. A ride for ice cream after a social, or to some local attraction can be just as much fun as an all day ride across the state. The chapter is only as fun and interesting as our members are willing to make it. Let’s all determine to add something the our chapter this coming year. For the chapter to be a success everyone has to become involved and active.

We hope to see you all at the chapter Christmas party. It should be a great time.
