Happy Independence Day. Hope everyone has a fun filled and safe 4th of July celebration.

Our riding season is in full swing now, and except for some cool and wet weather it’s been a good start. June was a fun month for Chapter G. We had our ROMEO breakfast ride and the monthly dinner ride.

The highlight of June was our annual fundraiser in conjunction with Sportland 2 and their Open house and bike show. After a week of consistent forecasts of rain the weather turned out to be great and we didn’t get a drop. Thanks to all the members (and honorary members) who helped make it a fun and profitable event. Unfortunately, the change from its original date caused us to miss the district rally again. Between the fund raiser and our Fall Fling we just can’t seem to avoid conflicting with the district rally.

July promises to be a good month for the chapter too. Please see the information above. Also, please note that the brunch ride that was listed on the calendar for Sunday June 21 has been cancelled because the members showed no interest in doing it.

August promises to be a great month for chapter and district events so please take a look at the chapter and district calendars. We’re looking forward to seeing many of you at these upcoming events.
