Now that we’re coming to the end of 2020 many people have a common response to it: GOOD RIDDANCE! GO AWAY AND NEVER COME BACK AGAIN.                                                                    This year, which has been dominated by Covid19, has put a lot of stress and uncertainty on most of us. We can only hope that 2021 is an improvement. (One hopes it can’t be worse!)            Hopefully you’ll be able to spend some great time with friends and family and enjoy what the Christmas season is all about.                                                                                                                   As you can see from the information above, we’re continuing what we’ve done the last few years and having only a ROMEO breakfast ride in December. Because the month is so busy with family commitments, we’re forgoing both a dinner ride and a monthly social. See you again in 2021.                                                                                                                                                               In January we will return to our “normal events”, or at least as close to normal as the continuing medical situation allows. If any changes are necessary, we’ll let everyone know via email. That, of course, includes where and what time our monthly social will be held. We’re still not able to use what had been our usual meeting place at the WaterStone bank in Oak Creek. No one knows when (or if) we’ll be able to resume meeting there.                                                                    Hope to see you all at breakfast on the 12th. Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. See you in January.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:

November is the month Wisconsinites who are hunters really look forward to. Unfortunately, it also means the riding season is pretty much over. Time to get started winterizing the bike (and the car, and the house, and whatever else you need to do in preparation for winter).                      It’s hard to believe that Covid is still afflicting so many people in our state and country. It remains almost impossible to make any firm plans because of all the restrictions placed on people getting together. As noted above we’ll have our usual events in November, assuming no more restrictive mandates than we have now are issued by the government.                                As we’ve done in recent years, we’ll continue to suspend chapter activities in December following the monthly breakfast ride. We all need time to concentrate on preparing for Christmas and New Years and spending time with our families.                                                        At this time it’s uncertain whether the chapter will hold a holiday party in January as we’ve done the last few years. We’ll let everyone know via email if something can be arranged.                      We hope everyone has a great month of November and has a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:

OCTOBER ALREADY! Even this summer of cancellations seems to have flown bye.                Fortunately, October almost always has lots of nice days for riding and the fall colors are usually beautiful. It’s starting to sound like we may even have a Badger football season to cheer about. That would be a great morale booster for many of us.                                      Our breakfast and dinner rides are set. Barring some kind of return to total lock down, we should have a great time at both destinations.                                                                            Our October social, on the 25th this year, is when we will finish our annual Circle Tour. We’ll pick cards and award the cash prizes to the winners. If anyone still needs to get the locations and questions for this year’s tour let us know ASAP so we can email them to you.                                                                                                                                                                   Hoping all of our members remain healthy and happy.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:

Happy September everyone. We certainly hope this month finds everyone healthy and happy.    Since concerns over the Wuhan virus continue to plague us, far longer than almost anyone expected, we’re still uncertain what will or won’t be happening. We’re continuing to try to be creative in how we handle planning for our  chapter.                                                                              It appears unlikely that we’ll be able to meet at the WaterStone bank for our Sept. social so we’ll let everyone know via email where and when we’ll have it. We had a very pleasant August social at Grant Park. The weather was perfect, the lake was beautiful, and as always the company was great. Obviously, once fall and winter arrive we’ll have to find some indoor venue for our get togethers. We’re working on that already now.                                                                                         We’ve also had to make changes to many of our previously announced plans. For instance, our Oct. ROMEO breakfast ride was scheduled for Cranky Al’s. Unfortunately, they are so small they don’t allow dining in, so we’ve changed our breakfast location to the Oak Creek Diner. That location was chosen because it was originally planned for the spring when all restaurants were closed and had to be cancelled.                                                                                                           2020 has become a year we’ll always remember as a year we’d probably like to forget. We can only hope and pray that 2021 turns out to be better for all of us.                                                        As always we wish you safe riding and happy and health lining.                                                           Rich & Sharon Winkler – Chapter G directors

AUGUST EVENTS

DUE TO THE CLOSURE OF ALL JACKSON PARK PICNIC AREAS BY MILWAUKEE COUNTY, OUR CORN ROAST/PICNIC HAS BEEN CANCELLED.                                                                                                     3.

FROM THE DIRECTORS:                                                                                                                          During this year of the plague it is becoming harder and more frustrating to write a newsletter with anything positive to report. Cancellations and totally changed plans are the order of the day.                                                                                                                                                              The latest victim of the summer of cancellations is our annual Corn Roast/Picnic. Milwaukee county has closed all but a few parks to large picnics and has cancelled all reservations. Even in those few parks still open to picnics the restrictions make it virtually impossible to actually have one.                                                                                                                                                               Also our usual venue for socials remains closed to meetings, so we’re continuing to “play it by ear”.   Fortunately, our lunch and dinner rides are outside the city of Milwaukee and, at least for now, remain open for use. Our breakfast ride location for August is in the city of Milwaukee, so masks will be required when not eating, but the others are still available.  There’s no way to know when things will get better, so all we can do is keep on doing what we can and try to stay in touch with each other and enjoy each other’s company when and where it’s allowed.  Stay well and keep on keeping on.
