 From The Director:

In some parts of the country March is the start of spring. Unfortunately, here in Wisconsin it’s still pretty much winter. That’s why our “Winter Get-away” is this month. It is from Friday the 4th through Sunday the 6th. We’re looking forward to a great time at out new location at the Best Western Baraboo Inn. It’s one of the most enjoyable and fun events we have each year.                       While March is usually still quite cold and wintery, it sometimes has nice days which remind us that spring is getting closer, and there is a light at the end of the winter tunnel. I imagine everyone is as tired of winter, and not being able to ride, as we are. It’s also a good month to get started on the little jobs that will have the bike ready for when it’s actually nice enough to ride regularly.We had a great time and, as always, the food was very good at our February dinner ride to That’s Amore’.                                                                                                                                                Our February social, which included seminars,

and the regular social (with a presentation by Mr. T J Oman about the “Viper Ride”, which will be a ride for visually impaired veterans) gave us lots of things to think about and some ideas on which to follow up.

As noted above we’ll have our monthly breakfast and dinner “rides” in March and our social will be the second last Sunday of the month (not the last Sunday) at the WaterStone bank.                                                                                                                                                                       Several members have said they’re working on plans for rides this summer, including rides to The House on the Rock, the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa Iowa, and the “Pizza Farm” in Athens WI. There will be specific information coming at future socials and in future newsletters.                                                                                                                                                              At the April social Sharon and I will be presenting the information on the 2016 Circle Tour. It is starting to look like a busy and fun summer. Keep a good thought, and just hold on, we’ll be riding again soon.
