FROM THE DIRECTORS:

Happy Mother’s Day to all our Chapter G moms.

MAY – WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MONTH!

Spring will finally arrive in Wisconsin for sure. After the return of winter we had in the middle of April, it’s great to know (with 99.9% certainty) that we won’t have to put the bikes away because it’s snowing. Hallelujah!

There are rides planned all over the district and we’ll have our usual ROMEO breakfast and dinner rides this month too. If you want to join some other chapters for rides check the district website and click on the events tab. All the events for every chapter in the district are listed on the calendar. As always the district Dust Off is this month too. It’s on the 17th & 18th at the Glacier Valley Campground near Cambria. (details are on the district website).

There are two dates that we want to bring to everyone’s attention:

1.The May social is not the last Sunday of the month as is usual, it’s Sunday May 19.

  1. The date for the chapter fundraiser in June has been changed to Saturday the 22nd. We had to move it from the previously announced date (Sat. the 15th) because Sportland2 changed the date of their open house.

Unfortunately, this now puts us in conflict with the District Rally in Wisconsin Rapids. We were really looking forward to the rally since it no longer conflicted with our annual Fall Fling, and now we find ourselves with conflicting dates again. Sometimes it seems like you just can’t win!

Any chapter G members who weren’t planning to attend the district rally are certainly invited to come see the open house and bike show at Sportland 2.  Also, if you’re not going to the rally we could certainly use your help with the fundraiser. It’s a lot of fun and it brings in money that we use for the chapter all year long.

By the time May arrives we all should have had the chance to get out on the bike and knock off some of the rust that always accumulates over the non-riding winter months. Even if the weather is a little cool in May it’s still better than it’s been in April. It’s really time to get out an put some quality miles on the old iron (OK – mostly plastic) horse.

Hope to see you all at one or more of the upcoming chapter and district rides this month.
